BET - Nova Game Thread 3-15-19

Postby mumuskie87 » Fri Mar 15, 2019 4:31 pm

Win or go home continues for X.

X's defensive rating per KenPom was an excellent 91.4 against CU
In the 2nd game against Nova it was even better - 89.7
Their season avg is 100.7
Need another outstanding defensive effort again tonight.
In their loss to Nova - Nova shot 58% from 2 and 44% from 3.
In the win against Nova - Nova shot 44% from 2 and 28% from 3.
Nova's season averages are 54% from 2 and 35% from 3.
Got to hold them under their averages to have a chance.

Let's Go X!!

This clip was posted on the other board.
Loved it.
Enjoy.
Loved how this team has taken the hits and got back up off the mat.
Win or lose tonight - proud of this team.

Goodin is showing off for the scouts with his sweet stroke. Nice they are only down 2 despite 4 horrible shots - 3 by Goodin, and 1 by Marshall.

Harden had an open look for 3 - should have shot it.
But proceeded to turn it over

Marshall has his "hero" jersey on.
As does Goodin.
Unfortunate for X chances however.

Though he missed it, love that drive by Goodin. Welage continues to be clutch, and defense is unreal.

X up 17-15 at the U8 mark

Let's see - Goodin and Marshall are a combined 0-6 from the field.

Welage and Scruggs are a combined 5-5 from the field.

I'm just spitballing here but who should be shooting the ball for X?
