Quick Hitters

-Feels like it’s been a while since I have done one of these posts. I didn’t think you all would want to review the UNC game and real life made it nearly impossible for me to get that one done before the next game. If I am wrong about that, I apologize. Let’s dive into this much needed win over the Irish.

-Mid-range Samuell Williamson was a great sight to see. He was on fire from that high post spot against the zone or just when he would drive and pull up from there. He was 6/10 from the field and added eight rebounds to his 12 points. Very, very good performance from him.

-So good to see Malik back and contributing. He played 26 minutes and had 10 rebounds, which is great. Not only that, but he allowed guys like Jae’Lyn Withers and J.J. Traynor to play a little more on the perimeter and not be stuck on the block. He is also able to grab the rebound and bring the ball up if he has to. Several positives from his return. And it’s much easier for him to be a leader on the floor and not always from the bench.

-Need a bucket if the play breaks down and nothing is happening? Call on Carlik Jones. That’s all I’ve got about him. No more words needed.

-Double-double Jae’Lyn was back with 12 points and 13 rebounds and he was 2/2 from three. Not too shabby. Still scratching the surface on what he can be, and that’s exciting.

-Louisville dominated on the glass 45-30, including 14 offensive rebounds.

-The games where Dre Davis does a little bit of everything are clearly his best ones. He had 11 points, four rebounds, three assists, and one block. He played 36 minutes, second most to Carlik, which shows his value to this team when he is playing like that. There will be ups and downs with the freshman, but stuffing the stat sheet like that is definitely a good thing for the team.

-At the time of typing this, Louisville sits at fourth in the ACC. It’s been a roller coaster of a season, but I think we would take that spot.

-Let’s review a few clips and then move on to Duke. As always, I appreciate you checking this out. Go Cards!
