He was away from the basket and when shots went up he looked for the player that was his defensive assignment and retreated back to the defensive side of the court following his man, with no attempt for offensive rebounds, which has been a strength for us this season.


Down the stretch in crucial game deciding possessions I seem to remember (and can’t get myself to rewatch) butler getting 2-3 long offensive rebounds that were in the area of the court where LJ would have been a big help. Obviously as one of our better rebounders, but in particular his penchant for chasing then down away from the rim. That is where I thought we missed him most in last few minutes of game.

BTW I’m probably his biggest fan but that fourth foul was legitimately one of the most surprising things I’ve seen from an sju player. I couldn’t believe what I was watching, especially from him.

LJ has become very predictable with the ball on the left wing/baseline...only goes left...the defender knew it and was ready...


That was his 3rd foul.

You’re right...my bad

Scruggs and Marshall are very good players but they turn the ball over. Goodin too. If our pressure is even close to what it was in the 2nd half of Butler, we can rattle them. Just need to hit enough shots to set the press up. Don't need LJ and Heron to score twenty apiece but they have to be effective enough to keep them honest.

Also need Roberts, Champagnie, Earlington, etc to hit the boards hard today. Must improve in that area from Butler. Roberts needs to be effective for us. Marshall torched us last season but in my opinion the reason they clowned us was because we got dominated inside by Jones, Hankins and Marshall. Thankfully Hankins is gone now but we can't let Jones feel like he's the toughest kid on the block today. Gotta bang with this guy, get him frustrated, maybe get a few calls going against him. Keeping Jones in check and turning them over should keep us in this even if Marshall and Scruggs are scoring. Would be a big win. Not must win but losing puts a lot of pressure on the Georgetown game if we want to keep the recent positive narrative around our team going. Win the tougher game today and then go to Georgetown confident without feeling too much pressure.

I noted last year that I thought we should pressure Marshall every time he gets the ball. Good shooter but doesn’t handle very well and can be turned over.

If the Saints/Vikes go into OT we will likely start our @StJohnsBBall @XavierMBB tilt on @FS1 4:42 tip
