JP missed a couple of shots early.
Great look by SOM and back by JP.
X in a zone and right now FSU is 1-5 from 3.
Bacon is quite a good player.

They need to keep feeding SOM. Playing very well yet again.

Up 20 to 10.
Concern that they have 6 fouls with with 10 left in the 1H.
Don't have the depth that FSU has.

X playing well against man with some nice back cuts and screens down low.

Game is far from over, but I'm grateful the coach on the other side line has the last name of Hamilton and not Bennet. X has 1 true pg, and FSU goes 10-11 deep, and they are letting X control tempo. I'd pressure them 94 feet and speed up the game. FSU is also settling for outside jumpers, and X is holding their own on the boards.

SOM needs to keep getting the ball.
