Thoughts from the game...

- Has Luke Maye ever had a good game against us? I understand he is a really good player but we seem to be his kryptonite.
- A friend who is a UNC fan asked me earlier today if I felt like Jack Salt’s screens were legal. I said yes, but I can imagine how opposing fans must believe they aren’t because he just flattens people. Being a brick wall who sets precise screens isn’t a foul. If his legs are too far apart then that is on the refs. Jay and Mamadi need to be more like Jack here.
- It is a pretty great feeling to know that we are a better team than one of the historical darlings of the ACC. For four games straight.
- Let’s work on our free throws
- Ty is a warrior, but we already knew that. He and Kyle have amazing abilities to finish at the rim. Who thought that one Ty kiss off the top of the glass was going in? Heal that back, brother.
- Let’s work on our shot clock awareness
- Offensive rebounds are a concern but a lot of their long range shots missed badly and came off at bad angles.
- Turnovers have been a problem, but I have a hunch we get that fixed soon. We are too smart and good to continue that.
- Not from this game, but do yourself a favor and search up some Fransisco Caffaro videos. More help is on the way, my friends. He could be special for us. I can see him being Jack on defense and Gill on offense.
- Jay Huff has 2 more years with us. That thought makes me giddy.
- I miss the 25 point blowouts but suspect these tight games and especially comebacks will pay dividends long term. We needed something like this (and like Louisville last year) to affirm how resilient we are. We need to know we are never out of a game.
- Kyle Guy’s joy for the game is inspiring. I know it comes across sometimes as not being serious enough but it is who he is and I think it is what makes him so good. It reminds me of my need to be more like that in life.
