Man we foul a lot.

We play hard on D, and I guess that's a side effect.

Offense way to stagnant late in the half, too much dribbling not enough movement. Defense has been exceptional.

I gotta say purvis has seemed out of it in this tourney
Adams emerging into an offensive weapon has taken the team's need to rely on him offensively so much, less touches. Can't say it isn't for the best either.

Need to keep up the defensive play - it's been excellent. Offense is very shaky today.

Well should be up 20, but with Miller and brimah on bench with 2 each and everyone looking a little gassed toward end of half, I'll take it. Gotta come out strong to open 2nd. Don't let Memphis feel back in it.

Yeah we're playing 3 on 5 a lot when Miller and brimah are on the bench. Facey + Nolan were just standing around for most their minutes. Facey is a capable shooter I'd like for him to get free more around the paint

Adams needs to start the 2nd half - don't let Memphis back in game. And I would play zone to start the 2nd half to protect Brimah and Miller a little

Our offense has been a little uneven, to say the least, but Memphis's offense is making ours look good by comparison.

And yeah, way too many fouls. I think we have a real chance to do some damage in the next tournament, but for that to happen, our guys have to find a way to stay on the floor.

Great job limiting their fast break without sacrificing. That's their butter. Good transition D.

Facey is playing well.

Time to play hard. Don't let up. You have a good rest ahead of you, punch the gas and put this one away.

Yeah, Purvis just needs to knock down 3s and get out in transition.

well the first half is over we are leading but the boys do look tired, sluggish, they need to get the power up and run. Yes zone would be good at start of the second half and Brimah and Miller need to step up and not foul. Jalen is a beauty, keep up the good work and when Memphis has the ball say this "Defense, Defense, Defense, no 3's, no 2', no fouls" Keep repeating it is my own cheer and it has worked for the last two games. GO HUSKIES!!!!!!!!Mrs. Dribbles
