It wasn't always pretty, but the basketball team overcame some long stretches of uneven play to beat Marist. Things did get better late as the team pulled away. The most important lesson from the game is that BC won despite an off night from Hanlan. Here are a few other thoughts:
-- Batten made the most of his minutes. Easily BC's most efficient player of the night. He cannot be a true point, but we need someone who can consistently convert 3s. Maybe he will fill that role.
-- Cutting down on turnovers. Marist isn't nearly as athletic or aggressive as some of the other teams we've faced, but there was better passing and ball handling this game. And fewer mental errors from the big men and Heckmann
-- Clifford moving well. His shot was a bit off, but Clifford continues to move well and show no signs of stress or fatigue. Keep your fingers crossed.
