DDJ just needed me to light a fire under him.

Looks like Ody was (somehow) credited with a missed shot at the end of the half which means we went an entire half without a turnover.

Yeah, they called it a block.

A confident Ody could be a game changer for this team. Glad to see him have success against some reputable comp inside.

Incredible offensive performance tonight. We put up 1.23 points per possession, our third highest of the season after Miami and NJIT. The shooting was good but not great - only the 8th best effective field goal percentage. Pair good shooting with a season best 5.8 turnover rate and you have a recipe for success.

Defense in the first half was also great but we got lazy in the second half and gave up a bunch of uncontested rim buckets. MAW did a nice job on Harris after an early mistake. Ody was very good against Tchewa, limiting him to just 1 for 5 at the rim and zero offensive rebounds.

Player of the game was easily DDJ who made me look silly for complaining about his efficiency pregame. He scored 21 on only 8 shots to go with 7 assists and only 1 turnover. Nolley also displayed his playmaking ability with 21 points, 6 assists, and 9 rebounds. He was able to get into the lane a lot and used his size to score or find shooters. Skillings got to the bucket several times, showing a lot of potential with a quick first step. Ody continued to struggle scoring, converting just 3 of his 9 rim looks. Ezikpe looked competent out there, showing some touch on offense and strength on defense.

The win bumped us up to #57 overall on Torvik, our highest mark since the NKU debacle.

3 early road wins in AAC play had already matched last year's total for conference road wins (where we were 3-6).

We still have a tough slate of road games ahead (Houston, Tulane, ECU, UCF, Memphis) with ECU looking like the only "gimme", but the recent momentum we've built should allow us to be competitive in each one.

Outside of the usual suspects it was nice to see Ody have some success as well as Skillings and Kalu. We need positive minutes from the bench. Glad we are seeing Wes use the bench as a coaching tool. If you want to play you have to show me in practice (and not just one practice).

Between Kalu, Ody and Hensley they know what they have to do to find the floor and it's not that hard to figure out what that is. Defense and rebounding and being in the right spots as often as possible. You can't score points if you aren't in the game.
