    Nice win (spoiler alert)

    Was it good for the moral of the team to play the starters so much in blow out? It was weird in game not close at all not to play the bench more.

    I dont think so because:

    The bench players did not play well at all and I think Mac was proving a point. Each time they got in they looked lost and the point difference narrowed. The quick turnaround may have had something to do with this.

    The starters need the work and to work together in a game.
    They had a short game Monday and need to get court time at some point.

    It was ulgy at times tonight but the Texas Southern not being good had something to do with that. Things are coming together for this team. Clark could have a huge season if he keeps this up, he just keeps getting better as the season goes. 80 points without WJ scoring not a bad thing.

    Re: Nice win (spoiler alert)

    When you play an ugly Texas Southern team, you can expect some ugliness on your side of the court as well. I wouldn't be too critical about this game. Having said that, I see more positives than negatives in this game. Peterson had more assists and no turn overs, Jiri had a good game, Clark did his job as usual, Brackins looks consistent enough.

    Now let's go to Vegas and beat the Boilermakers, Purdue is very beatable!

    Re: Nice win (spoiler alert)

    I agree, Granted 20 point win is nice, but not a blowout in my opinion and our young squad can use all the game time experience it can get, especially before we really start getting tested in conference play.

    There was a CLEAR difference in the level of play between the starters and the backups. McD had to preserve the win as he said on the radio.

    Re: Nice win (spoiler alert)

    For some reason, bench play was really off tonight.

    It was good to see Jiri have a good (dominating, amazing) game against short people.

    Re: Nice win (spoiler alert)

    how about that alley oop on the out of bounds play to Brackins.. was that sick or what?!

    anyway i like the fact we have had these 2 games.. alows us to get some confidence and try new things... the bench was a little off tonite but Jiri was huge so that helped

    Ask Rashon if they are giving BP any crap for allowing 2 threes from a guy that is 5-3

    Very solid guard play tonight. Diante wasn't in much, but dished it out (good progress). That 3 by Rahshon was gorgeous. The alley-oop dunk by Brackins was fantastic, too.

    The game got way too close in the first half when they went deep into the bench. I don't doubt that GMac did the right thing.
