Boxscore Breakdown: BC vs South Carolina Upstate
As expected, BC easily handled our game vs the South Carolina Upstate Spartans. The team now takes a break for exams and will resume play next week against longtime hoops rival Providence. You can't read too much into these sorts of tune up games...but I will any way. I didn't see the game live, so for those who did feel free to add your comments below.
3-point shooting. A good day from the new distance. If Tyler Roche can hit these in important games he won't be glued to the bench.
Raji on the boards. People say that the flex works best when you have good passers. The best Skinner offenses have had a scrappy offensive rebounder (Sidney, Dudley). Raji can be that type of player.
-- Playing time. Tyler Roche got 17 minutes. I am okay with that. Dunn got 13 minutes. I am okay with that. Yet Dallas Elmore only played 9 minutes. Ravenel didn't play at all. They've looked good in limited spots this year. Why not give them more minutes in this sort of game? It's all more curious when two guys who don't seem to be part of the future (Roche and Dunn) saw long minutes on the court.
-- The foul shooting. 10-19 stinks. Southern missed most of those. Hopefully he'll be better in games that mean something.
-- Losing focus. We only outrebounded by two. We had more turnovers than they did. That's not the way you want to go into exam week.
Now let's hope the guys stay focused and don't come out rusty against the Friars.
