Swain needs to score, but you can't score if you don't shoot. I thought we had some better shooters in the freshman class, but Green appears to be the only guy Sean trusts.

All night long, it has been off the back flange for X's shots

Nova hitting the three-ball again. Now 15 plus over X from the three. They did this last game when they were behind and just changed the moment of the game.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

If Swain could shoot he wouldn’t be at Xavier. Spacing is terrible and our bigs are awful at this point.

I've felt like Swain got reprimanded after missing two breakaway dunks early in the season (on which he was showboating a bit) and now has no confidence to be aggressive or shoot at all.

Swain doesn't shoot because he has a high IQ, and realizes his range is four feet and in. Green should never leave the floor. His D has been as good as anyone's. He has had a couple of deflections-steals and was beat when he got switched onto a 6'8" guard. Sean thinks a team with one shooter on the floor is going to fuel a comeback.

But running the Steele weave gets lots of open looks

and ref's blind eyes to the travel for Nova but not X.

Driscoll is just as bad. Some bad calls. Claude not helping our cause.

You can't knock Dixon off his feet unless he is gunning for a foul
