Benzan looked really good tonight. Got to the rim in a lot of different ways. Not as much blow by speed as craftiness, it seemed. Hit his free throws too.
I had heard the team was messing around a bit with some different defenses; tonight looked like a lot of 2-3, but there may have been some matchup stuff mixed in. Might be imagining this, but BCarm seemed to get more worked up than usual over defensive lapses.
Floyd aggressive around the hoop; looks like that's where his offensive game will be again this year.
Ziggy looks a little stronger; Ant definitely added some muscle. Weird line for him, but he did have one nice left handed finish in the first half.
Although Malachi's shots weren't falling; I'm not worried at all about him. Looks to have about 2% body fat (I kid).
Sat in one of those courtside seats, courtesy of the esteemed sader1970. You have to stay awake, that's for sure. Will be nice to see the place with more people in it. Lobby is going to be really nice, I think. Lots of space.

Don't remember seeing any 1-3-1, hoops.
Regarding the rebounding - just from watching, it did not seem like we were having real problems. Was kind of surprised to see Assumption with 9 offensive boards. It is certainly going to have to be rebound by committee. I thought RChamp mixed it up some; he seemed to make it a focus tonight to be strong around the basket (don't even remember him taking many jumpers).
