The amount of posts that came back when I typed in "rubbing nipples" is pretty astounding but they mostly come from @sleeperpick and @tblack33 discussing how you liked doing that when Paulsen was coaching, lolI’m not sure that was me Matt, but if it was I’m sure Pablo will be along soon with the receipts lol
One last post from me about tonight's game.
Oduro = stud.
When we had trouble in-bounding the ball at the end of the game, KE took Johnson aside during the time out and "showed" him how you shake you defender free with a bit of mis-direction. Damn if KE isn't quick, or quicker, than XJ!!
Pretty sure English would average 23-24 per game if he suited up.
This thread now has mentions of “tonguing balls” and “rubbing nipples.”
Looking at the box score, it's really pretty f'n incredible that we won this game.
- Hawks shot 50% from behind the arc on 26 attempts vs. just 23% on 22 attempts for Mason
- Out rebounded us 30 to 23
- Had 17 assists to our 12
They did turn it over 17 times though (vs. just 4 for Mason) and of course wouldn't have been in it w/out one of the all-time great performances in program history by Josh.
I always look at the Game Flow charts after games. Love the closeout well illustrated in the graphic on this "could have gone either way" type game.Mason shot 77% from 2 in the second half. That’s a pretty incredible stat line. And yeah, those turnovers made a big difference as Mason had 11 more shot attempts than St Joes.
KE mentioned in presser that Joe's wasn't giving them the three. I'd like to see how they did it bc too many games were lost this year giving open looks from deep.
Our donors make all of this possible! Thank you for your continued support of MasonHoops, we couldn't do it without you.
