Yup ... really nice to see those two playing well, great to see Boat out there finally. You can see what a help he's going to be.

Impressive and FSU is not a cupcake. Like how he let the game come to him over time.

^^^lol, that dude was a moron who said AD was a bust.

I really would have liked to have seen them feed the post more in the latter stages of the second half. I wonder if it was by design because AD is so young? Or if Bazz just did that on his own. He was hot, so who am I to judge. Good win, a game that should help them grow, but there is still plenty of growing to do. I didn't see much of DD today, but ill admit that I was in and out of watching as my kids were acting crazy.

DD outside shot hasn't really been falling and his game actually is kind of similar to RS where he has a tough time taking his man off the dribble. I think he will be fine in time as he has real nice form on his shot.

Biggest surprise is how smart Drummond can play for his age in key moments. Thabeet would have 100% swatted that final shot in regulation and we would have lost.

Yeah good point and that was after JL almost picked up a foul swatting at the ball but at least he did it sideways instead of down. JL's defense leaves a lot to be desired.

Yes AD is a manchild but he does need to improve his shot. It is dreadful at this time.

I liked what I saw of Boat for his first game. Thought they ignored Lamb too much in the second half.
Drummond is just a pleasure to watch.
Olander had a bad game today, not only shooting but on D as well.
Still, he hit clutch free throws at the end.

Drummond is going to be ridiculously good later this year, he's almost at that point already, his game to game improvement is drastic.

Deandre looked hurt when he returned for the second half. He spent time with team doctor and I don't remember him getting out again.

I agree. We havent really fed the post at all this year. I think AD has gotten it about five times total when posting up. Something we need to do more often.

These three freshman are all big time players right now. Drummond has been super impressive this tournament and for Boatright to make his debut against a top 25 team with the defense FSU has, very impressive. Is DD sick? He looked a little sluggish.

Drummond played fantastic today. Four offensive rebounds, 12 points, and six blocks! He held James to 4 out of 11 from the field also.

Yea Drummond's man to man D in the post against James was very good, bodied him up several times today during his post moves to the basket.

DD has the flu and was probably feeling very weal. Also TO also had some flu symptoms.
Hopefully that was the cause for his poor game.

On Boatright, I haven't seen Jabarie Hinds play nor have I bothered to look up how he's done but I get the feeling we may have gotten the better of that situation.

if drummond can not put the ball on the ground like thabeet did and go up strong and he'll be a monster... he doesn't need to shoot now, we have 4 other positions for that... he needs to bang down low, rebound, and finish around the rim
