Back Pack and forth
Last time around against NC State, BC got up early and held on. This time around the Pack blew past BC's early lead. Then BC chipped away in the second half but the Pack answered and, in my opinion, made the smarter moves in the final minutes to hold on. Leave your thoughts below.
-- Sanders getting hot. Credit where it was due, Rakim was hot tonight. Sure there were a few "no, no, yes!" moments when he put up shots I thought were a bit ill-advised, but he played well.
-- Raji's productivity. We've all mentioned Raji's recent slump, but tonight he put up good minutes against a big frontline. He rebounded well and converted his shots.
-- Decisions in the closing minutes. I didn't mind getting the ball to Trapani on the low block. I did think we wasted too much time on NC State's possession (that resulted in a foul anyway). I also think Rice should have taken a shot earlier in our possession. And think we should have rushed up a shot before they fouled with 6 seconds left.
-- Paris's playing time. We've spent the past few weeks talking about Paris' emergence and then he barely gets off the bench tonight after taking a hit to the head. I guess it was bad...I think Paris might have been a good option when the offense started to get a bit stagnant and might have resulted in more high percentage shots.
BCI did a good job breaking down our ACC Tourney seeds. It's 5 or 6 now.
