    Royce White's Defense

    I just wanted to throw this out there because I haven't heard anyone mention it. I think RW's defense on KUs high pick and roll is one of THE reasons we won today. It is such an unbelievable luxury to have a big guy that can hedge that screen and/or switch the screen and is able to keep the guard in front of him. Don't think he gets enough credit for this.

    Re: Royce White's Defense

    our forwards had their best defensive game of the year. Ejim, Royce, and Booker all played well down low.

    Re: Royce White's Defense

    I want to know what Booker did last year to go from an apparent poor shooter to a pretty darn good three point shooter. And, whatever it was can he share his secret with Royce?

    Re: Royce White's Defense

    I don't believe Booker was allowed to shoot much at Southern Illinois.... part of the reason he left was that he thought he wasn't being used very well or getting the PT he should get.

    Re: Royce White's Defense

    Well, he was 3-19 in two years so that's not great no matter how you slice it. I can see why the coach's maybe weren't thrilled about him shooting threes at that point.

    Why isn't Gibson playing?

    He's completely in over his head defensively. The game is still too fast for him...like you'd expect from a freshman.

    Re: Royce White's Defense

    Royce helped a lot on the perimeter, especially when their bigs got into foul trouble. He was pretty effective frustrating their shooters late in the game.

    Thanks. Was wondering if he was hurt.

    Yeah, its hard to pick a 'reason we won' in a game against kansas, because when you're playing a team like Kansas you have to do a lot of things right to win.
