Yes a win is a win, but it WAS painful to watch. In the first half on offense the whol team camped out along the 3 point lint. Moving to the inside was off limits.




True. But I think a big reason for that was the Monmouth defense. They were big and packed all defenders close to the basket. Their two centers were both bigger than Sestina and their two PF's a bit bigger than Moore. Guards were big as well. The Bison attempted 34 threes and I think the shooters were open on all of them. The only ones I didn't like were the ones from Jones - and he was wide open also.

Overall they made almost 33% of the threes - equivalent to 49.2% on twos. And that was with two good long-range shooters, Mackenzie and Sotos - making an uncharacteristic 3.of 13, all of them good looks.

In the second half, they were able to get to the rim a little more – which is good. But I didn't have a big problem with them taking the open threes that the Monmouth defense was giving them. One good thing in this game, by the way, was Andrew Funk drilling two second half threes. Despite being a good shooter in practice and in high school, he had been in a miserable slump. Hopefully this will give him the confidence to keep making those shots.

You don’t need any expertise to say that that game was a painful watch, but shifting to the positive...Avi Toomer!! If that is the Avi we see from here on in, that is a huge plus!

I need video of Avis putback because that was just ferocious.

Yes, Avi finally played how we all know he is capable of playing! I've been waiting for a game like that from him.

Having seen him score 40something in a high school game I knew the offensive outburst was possible. Nice to see it happen. Best goal tend I have ever seen.
Ray Bucknell!

Avi seemed to be much more aggressive offensively. Is this something that the coaches encouraged, or did he decide to do this on his own?

Nathan Davis addressed the shot imbalance after the game:

"I don't care if we shoot 70 threes in a game as long as we're working inside-out and getting good looks. They collapsed the lane and played great help defense and forced us outside. We had good looks. They just didn't fall."

Don’t know if Avi’s performance had anything to do with it, but his parents were in the house.

Looked like Alexander Rice was at the end of the Monmouth handshake line and sharing greetings and laughs with our coaches and players at the end of the game.

He also spent some time in the bison locker room after the game.

Here's a different view that stays with the action a little longer:
