After the buzzer: Central Arkansas

Wednesday did not provide much competition for the Louisville Cardinals, but they did what you would want them to do: they took care of business and did not let up. It’s easy to get complacent in these games and start to play down to your competition and get out of the flow of your gameplan, but that did not happen. With all of the excitement around Scott Satterfield and the upcoming game against the Hoosiers, I won’t waste anymore of your time. Let’s get right to some quick hitters and film review. As always, thanks for checking this out.

Quick Hitters

-When a shooter is struggling to find his shot, he sometimes just needs something simple to happen. Maybe that’s making a layup or getting to the free throw line and knocking them down. Just something to see the ball go through the net. Maybe V.J. King needed a game against a lesser opponent to get him going. Maybe this was the equivalent of that shooter just seeing the ball go through the net. V.J. saw himself finishing at the rim in traffic. Does this jumpstart him? We shall see. Either way, that dunk was incredible.

-Steven Enoch returned. That’s a good thing. We still need to see it against good competition though. It’s bound to happen. I believe it will. But he can’t keep having great games against these teams and then laying eggs in the bigger games. Too many big games on this schedule.

-Jordan Nwora had 21 points, but I am happier to see the five rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block. Continue to do other things besides just score.

-Giving up 11 offensive rebounds to that team is not ideal. Even in a 45 point victory, there are things to be corrected.

-Still a fan of Christen Cunningham. Love the five assists and only one turnover.

-Jordan Nwora is averaging 17 points per game. After that, there are seven guys averaging anywhere between 6.4 and 9.9 points per game. Got to love that balance.

-Not much else to add from this one. Cards did what they needed to do and are looking pretty good at 6-2. Saturday would be a very nice win to get.

Film Review

A heavy dose of Steven Enoch in this film review. He makes some good moves to get open before he gets the ball. And not much negative to point out all around, so that’s a good thing.
