Seriously, folks. This team is really, really good. Took some elite level weirdness to lose each game so far. First the inexplicable 28 TO’s against dook without Moss then our dude Marcus goes down early against Nova followed by Dot’s brain fart. First against KenPom #1 dook and then KenPom #19 at their place, and we lost by a total of 3 points. The Dayton win is really good. Our freshmen will only get better, just look at the games Braun and Enaruna had today. Marcus will be back. Silvio will eventually find his sea legs. Self’s teams always get significantly better over break with the increased practice time.
The other thing we have in spades is defense, and it will travel. We’re the KenPom #5 defense, essentially tied for 4th. The offense will come around. I’m certainly an optimist by nature so ignore me if you want to see things on the downside. But!
