2) Stroud. Thought he's been the most improved player, and he keeps improving. It just seems as if the kid keeps making smarter plays each time out.
3) Rotegaard. Quiet, yet he hit his one shot again. Check his shooting % last 5 games. 67%, no bad shots. Squared up he's solid. Blocks out
4) with only 3 board 1st half from LT/AT, we still out-rebounded Bake, and despite playing zone. the rebounding story is part the perimeter guys. just keep walling out guys. Jones, AJ, Tone, Rotegaard, Tsahonis all boarded well, especially Tone was blocking out bigs, even got called for foul on a good block-out, bad call.
5) AT finally took an outside shot, of course it was a desperation end of clock 3.
6) was a good lesson. Bake came out extended perimeter pressure, and we didn't have strong passes. teams have so backed off from our shooting, need to be prepared for that type of pressure and stronger passing. AT was so used to nobody trying to guard him that far out.
7) hit first 18 FTs, then reverted with a 7 of 13 finish, the masons we know and love
8) 3 pt shooting is getting good enough, so long as avoid forced jack-ups.
9) if this team can clamp down on a few turnovers, and get Tsahonis ball in space vs crowds, could be really good, and that top 100ish team that was possible before November
10) Jones is part of the missing piece, we saw the impact last night with that stroke and defense.
6 games left, don't even care what seed they end up at. At this point, it's shoring up how this team executes in games. Beach is a team that others have to be concerned about match-ups, not the other way around. the top 7 teams have some good players regardless of who we might get. & the championship game is likely to be vs. either Irvine or SB but who knows.
