Hardnett has been extremely efficient in his minutes. He plays so much better at the 4 lets hope he stays there. Jeenathan had an off game scoring but still got 4 assists so was productive. Johnson seemed much more confident and was taking better shots. Maybe it took him a little while to get in his groove but better late than never! This game looked like a step back for Brock. While he was never expected to be a big minute player, the past few games he contributed a solid couple of mins with some points and rebounds. Here, he struggled to get position and use his size to his advantage at all. Lets hope he can play some meaningful minutes next game.
Overall there were some lapses on defense for layups, and they shot lights out from 3 in the first half. Free throw shooting was much improved (shoutout to Johnson as he was 7/7). Way too many fouls called on both sides which hurt game flow. This was a must win conference game at home against a week opponent and while it wasn't the overall great performance they had against Central Michigan, they came away with a double digit point win.
