RE: FAU weekend
Somewhere around the 12 minute mark of the first half, FAU was up 20-8. They scored 35 points in the final 32 minutes. It was the defense that won that game. We didn’t look great on offense, but we took care of the ball while the defense turned them over 23 times. I’m really liking the zone when the guys are active and getting in passing lanes.

Solid performance. .97 PPP on offense (decent), .83 on defense (Really good D).

They shot great inside the arc and bad outside. Thats a change.

Great games by Oliver and Reece to pick the guys up. Kinda discourage about Curry so far (injury?) and I think Long needs more minutes.

What’s discouraging about Curry? It seems like to me he’s one of if not the biggest reason we don’t have a losing record.

RE: FAU weekend
I expected more from Curry after the stretch last year. He's not been bad but has had some inconsistencies. Tries to do too much. More turnovers than last year and his defense has not been good.

Granted, he's still a good player. After the last half of last year, I thought he would be a candidate for all CUSA. But, it is still early in the year and he's been injured. We obviously have bigger issues than him.

Kenpom has Curry as 5th in the player of the year discussions for CUSA. I do agree with you about Long. He definitely needs more minutes, and I think he will get them. We have some incredibly active hands on defense. So many deflections, and so many steals by our guys. That 1-3-1 is lethal on day 2 for teams.

Thats odds, his numbers aren't great looking through KenPom numbers but sobeit. Im probably a little too harsh on him anyways.

Long is really the key to the 1-3-1, imo. He plays the top of the key so well.

Why is Long the key to the 1-3-1? Others have been playing it at the top of the key much more than he has - Green & Oliver - and it has been working well during those times.

I do agree with your earlier comment that Long should be getting more playing time then he has thus far.
