I loved watching this game last night. 😉 One thing I am very curious about going forward is how Fred is going to handle Keisei in these games with physical teams. I thought Keisei played well, I love his moxie (even if over the top every once in awhile). But it't not often you get a great win like that and your leading scorer was -3. That says a lot for the rest of our dudes and how they played. I feel like we definitely guard better when 30 is out and most of our winning run came with him on the bench. Please don't take this as a knock on 30, love him to death. 


I think KT is still working on adjusting to a role that is different than last year.  What we need from him this year is completely different and he doesn’t have to carry the load.  He can easily average 12-15 PPG without forcing anything.  His best shots have been on ball reversals and when he works to get open.

I think our offense works well because of what KT did last year, he’s now the primary focus of the opposing team so it’s opened up the court for the others. I still think he’s our best overall scoring threat when he’s in the game. Last night showed me he can dish it back to a physical team that was doing everything they could to knock off his spots.

Agreed, plus with that attention going there our other guys are getting to flow and cook and KT still had kind of a quiet 23.  That’s a good thing.

It did not feel like 23 at all, and then I look up and he has 23. Did not feel like a typical keisei explosion

Does anyone know specifics about the last technical? I've been asked about it three times today so it must not have been explained on the TV broadcast

 

They said it's because he was out of the coaching box.  After all the jawing at the ref, all they needed was an excuse to pull the trigger and I think that was it.

The coach was trying HARD to get T'd up.

 

He was out of the coaching box and the ref was ignoring him. His assistants were trying to pull him back and he resisted them and kept jawing at the official.

 

Eventually, the official was like "OK, you want a T, I'll give you a T."

Lack of rebounding in 1st half was main reason it was close. Dominated rebounding during run to blow things open and then Duqe made run by getting to the glass. Probably putting jinx on team but with so many guys in rotation that can score can't think there will be many nights when all of them have off night shooting. Also helps when shooting that good at free throw line. Would be interesting to know how many hit nothing but bottom of the net. 

Seems like team is very cohesive and gets along. When Gary left the game Allick stood up and waved his arms to get crowd to stand and acknowledge his performance.

Interesting matchup tonight-- The Dukes played UC Irvine.

 

Torvak has UC Irvine at #71 while the Dukes are sitting at 58.  What throws an even more interesting wrench in it is that the Fighting Tim Miles are the only team to beat UC Irvine this year in the very first game of the year for both teams.

 

Since that loss to SJSU, UC Irvine has been on a tear wheeling off six straight and beating USC in the process.

 

The Dukes got the best of UC Irvine tonight 66-62 and improve to 5-2.  Irvine drops to 6-2 with losses to the Dukes and SJSU.
