Why: Carsen was excellent last night. There was effort on defense, of course he was explosive on offense as well. His best stat last night was 5 assists. When he can be a guy who can score and distribute, we become much more dangerous. He still had 3 turnovers, but with how much he has the ball in his hands, it really isn’t that bad.
Why: Is the slump over? It sure looked like it last night. Cline was on fire to start the game. He ended being 7 of 11 from the field and 5 of 8 from deep. He had 19 points. He also had 4 assists to only one turnover.
Why: Nojel was great on defense as always, but he was effective on offense last night. He was 3 of 3 from the field scoring 6 points. Defensively he had 3 steals and a block.
Why: Grady hit his open shots and Coach Painter continues to show faith him, leaving him with the starting 5. He had 8 points and 5 rebounds last night. His only hiccup was having 4 personal fouls, getting the 4th with 18 minutes to go in the second half.
Why: Evan continues the stretch of struggling basketball. He had 3 points all from the line last night and only had one rebound starting at the five. He, Haarms and Tre basically split the minutes at center, Evan got 15.
Eric Hunter Jr.
Why: This was easily Hunters best game, logging 19 minutes. He scored 13 points and had 4 assists with no turnovers. He finished with only missing one shot.
Why: Wheeler did a nice job of taking what he got. He had 5 points and 5 rebounds. His length effected many shots from Ohio last night. He logged one block on the night while playing 13 minutes.
Why: Tre continues to eat into the playing time of other centers. He, Haarms and Evan basically split minutes. He had 5 points and 8 rebounds as well as 2 blocks. There were times where he did not rotate well on defense, but that will continue to be a work in progress.
Why: Haarms continues to lose minutes. The center job was his for the taking, but he never took a strangle hold on it. He had 4 points and 4 boards off the bench, but he also had 2 turnovers in only 12 minutes. He also did not block a shot.
Why: Sasha did a little bit of everything and sometimes when you don’t notice a player much, that is a good thing. He only scored 2 points, but had 3 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal in 15 minutes of play.
