I love you but it’s the tournament and stats don’t fucking matter. I am a numbers guy because it helps me set my expectations for a full season, but this time of year it’s time to grab your fucking wanger and slap Dana Altman in the face. At which point he will say, “that was odd”.GCU scored 1.17 PPP and got 43% of their misses. Also only turned it over on 11% of possessions while averaging 20% on the year. Not good. Flip side, we scored 1.37 PPP. 4th best of the year and the others were against opponents ranked lower. So that's good.
Also felt like we were kind of coasting the last 10+ minutes with the game comfortable so there's that. Tighten that shit up on Monday.
I know it has been talked about multiple times, but the difference you get in the tournament in the scouting vs. what you see in the Big Ten is sort of shocking. In the Big Ten the other team knows how many hairs you have on your arms and who your momma banged back in high school.I hope teams continue to defend Murray like GCU did.
