    Good stuff again @Rich Ruben I agree with most of your take on the game. Portland shot the lights out with those 3s. None of us can predict the future but I doubt if Portland will shoot 46% from 3 point line again, 13 - 28 is very good. It is even better that SC shot 50% 10 - 20. Quinton Adlesh did not take a shot after he started out 3 - 3 from behind the line.

    Defensively, switching on all screens can not work with Mobley, Okongwu and Rakocevic in the game. Portland didn't have the bigs so the Pilots guards we too quick for the SC's bigs. Switching worked in the 2nd half when SC went with 4 guards and Okongwu, and I think you mentioned that.

    I am really impressed with Ethan Anderson. That was a steal in recruiting. And because he flew under the radar, he'll be around for a while. Good point guard play can reap huge benefits, let's not forget what Jordan McLaughlin did. Ethan will help tremendously this year.

    Fight On! SC basketball.
