[quote="Skeeza, post:2448, topic:2775"]It's a foul-fest. Seton Hall had 31 fouls. That doesn't mean up tempo.[/quote]
It could be that the fouls are the result of the up tempo pace we were playing. The fouling could also have slowed our pace and kept our shot total down. I don't think we can come to any conclusion based on that box score.
We also forced 9 live ball turnovers at least, perhaps more depending on what Watkins contributed.
Keep in mind, I am not "drawing a conclusion" already. Some people love to have someone to vilify, but it shouldn't be me.
I was simply making an observation from the box score. If does not mean that it will be the story for the entire season, but everyone has to admit that they would hope to see some more evidence of an up-tempo style. You would have rather seen something that would indicate that style, than to see something that does NOT show it.
I'm a Penn State fan, and I am hoping to see it, but I have to be realistic when I point out that the box score was not showing what we may want to see. Perhaps we will see it later, but I was just saying that it didn't seem that way for this one.
