[quote=“Skeeza, post:1, topic:268”]Kidcoyote and I have a meal/giftcard at Hooters wagered on Sasa’s scoring average. The cutoff is 11 PPG, I have the under, he has 11 and the over.
2 games; 8 points
should have: 22 points
22 - 8 = -14 off total
Sasa needs to score 25 in his next game to get back on track.[/quote]
You may want to check the pm’s we exchanged a couple months back on the over/under. It’s 10. Still not good, but IMO, Sasa will get more playing time going forward.
PSU was outscored in the paint last night by RMU, 25-24. Of the 24, 8 were split by Battle and Sasa, who combined only played 36 minutes. Of the remaining 164 minutes, only 16 points in the paint. The Penn game was worse, as sans Battle, only 8 baskets inside the arc(Battle had 9 baskets inside). As we play tougher teams, Sasa will have to play due to his knack for inside scoring. I hope you don’t think Babb will shoot 5-9 and Tim 4-5 from the arc every game. The team won’t win without points in the paint, not against good teams. Nobody provides them quicker than him. His D looks pretty poor, but some others not great. I recently predicted he’ll lead the team in shooting percentage(after SRU game) and he’ll be 1st or second in FT percentage. SC, Miami and Temple will provide some tough comp. Temple lost by a point to 20th ranked Georgetown tonight. RMU ran out of gas. Not sure what happened, but I think that pressing D just wore them out. If SC, Miami and Temple can keep their legs, we’ll have to score inside, IMO.
