Imrpessive start to 2011 for basketball
After the loss to URI, I said this team has shown an ability to put losses behind them. Well they put the loss to the Rams behind them in a big way. BC thrashed South Carolina 85-70 in a game that wasn't even as close as the score indicated. It was really a complete game. Any 'dislike' I put down would be a complete nitpick. Here are some thoughts on the game.
-- Trapani is hot. A complete game. He made some 3s. Some putbacks. Some layups. He also was solid defensively. Joe is consistently good and occasionally great. Let's hope we see more greatness down the stretch.
-- Smart passing on the press. South Carolina pressed at points and we shreddded it. The final turnover number is a bit deceiving since a few came late. Paris, Jackson, and Trapani were solid with their ball handling.
-- Good minutes from Moton. The freshman has been a weak link this season. Saturday wasn't a stellar performance, but it was improvement. He made some good decisions and played good D.
-- Getting some simple points off of inbounds. The inbounds plays were a source of frustration for a long time under Skinner. Not only is it not an issue, but we are able to get some easy baskets now.
This was the most complete game of Donahue's tenure at BC. Let's hope plenty of BC fans saw it and get on the bandwagon. We need Conte to be rocking this winter.
