Two other things surprised me when looking this stuff up. Our overall defense has not been impacted by the Williams departure.
Look at this
|Stat||Before SW Suspension||Since|
|Pts per game||73.6||69.3|
So, as you can see, we are allowing fewer points and opponents have barely increased their percentage against us. Keep in mind that we have also taken on the heart of the ACC lineup during this stretch.
Hats off to Blair and the rest of the team for rallying back and playing some great basketball the past three weeks.
