Thank goodness they shot well because I don't particularly think they played well.  The inside defense in the zone left a lot to be desired at times.  Their bigs (Taylor, 20 pts) had several wide open attempts inside (and missed a few thankfully). But we're young and learning a new defense, so I guess that is to be expected.  If we play this kind of defense against Louisville, it will be a long night.

Also,18 turnovers....  no.  

I was impressed with Williams (both of them) and Scott (14 assists) was fantastic.

Overall, It was an easy win over a bad opponent and will provide several teaching moments for Coach Matta.

Speaking of uneven schedules, I was just perusing the basketball schedule for this season.  We play the following teams only once:

Illinois (home)

Minnesota (away)

NW (away)

Maryland (home)

Rutgers (away)

Nebraska (home)

Sparty (away)

Wisconsin (home & last game of the regular season)

It's probably an advantage to only play the tougher teams (UW, MSU, Neb, Minn) once, but as a fan, I think it sucks.

Yep, he's definitely got to make that play.  No doubt.

But, I keep remembering the feeling I had when the announcers said Eli was injured at the beginning of the game.  I thought to myself, "Self, that's a huge loss."  There is no way I would have thought that way at the beginning of the year.  The talent distance between Apple and Conley is huge right now and with Reeves out, it could have been a long night. 

Thankfully, he was able to play and the point was moot.
