Nice dime from Goodin to Marshall
And good ball movement for nice 3 from Scruggs

Great shot by Booth.
Over Jones.
Nothing you can do about that.

Banked 3 from the corner by Scruggs
Sometimes you need a little luck ;)

Nova has too many offensive boards - 5.
But they haven't converted to points - only 3 2nd chance points
X needs to clamp down on the defensive boards

Marshall's elite defensive effort is neutralized by his horrendous offense. Goodin playing really well now. Edit: Q just took the worst shot of the half.

Up 6
Goodin and Marshall are 1 for 10
Rest of the team - 13 for 18 - over 70%.

Nova has no answer for Hankins
He only played 10 minutes in 1H.
Needs to be on the court more.

Marshall, and to a little lesser extent, Q, are killing X with their selfish, low IQ play. One for ten from the field. If they were good shots, like Q's missed lab, that's fine, but his floaters and Marshall's off the dribble threes are the same as a turnover. Thankfully, everyone else is playing team ball, and their great defense is carrying the day....so far.

X leads Nova 22-12 in points in the paint.

X has 11 assists on 14 FG's - nice passing by X.

Hankins is 3-3 from field
Jones is 3-6
Nova doesn't have anyone that can size up with Hankins.

It's amazing how they continue to play like this game after game after game.
Instead being like Superman, they are X's version of Wile E Coyote.
