Maybe I just didn’t recognize it earlier on but they don’t really pick up full court anymore. In turn I feel like the defense has gotten a lot better, maybe it allows them to conserve more energy.
Best play of the night had to been PJ Pipes three he shot at the shot clock. Step back right in the other guys face. Pretty damn cool to see. Knew it was going to be a good game for him after he hit the half court shot before the game started. If he continues to shoot like this watch out, his junior year could be special.
Trevian Bell is also playing at a high level right now. Could be the best of the bunch. His confidence is through the roof right now hence him pulling up two feet behind the three point line and taking a shot. He missed it but earlier this year he wouldn’t even attempted it. Guy is deadly from the corner and can knock down his free throws. Don’t think he missed one last night.
Manny Patterson is a very interesting player. Linc only seems to play him vs particular match ups. I for one thinks he should see more time. Had some solid post moves last night and finished strong.
Will have a strong senior squad next year, with JayQuan leading the way.
Texas Southern will be a good test for the Phoenix. Sure hope the Kress is just as loud and crazy on Tuesday as it was last night. One win away from the CHAMPIONSHIP
