They're tough. Very quick, physical group of defenders,


especially on the perimeter. They're pretty pedestrian offensively but they do have some guys who can get it going from 3.

How we defend the 3-point line, keeping Jay out of foul trouble, and taking care of the ball will probably determine the outcome.

They've forced about 18 turnovers per game against a quality schedule, which creates much needed offense for them in transition. We need to limit our turnovers and make them play against a set defense.

I think Reece will be a really key for us in that regard in terms of having a quality secondary ball-handler against their perimeter pressure.
