Led the team in assists (5) and rebounds (6), while scoring 11 points. His best game offensively against the best competition we’ve faced so far - I’d say that’s a good sign.
Unfortunately he also led the team in turnovers last night, but still had a positive A/T ratio in the end so you can’t be TOO upset with him about those. I think some of this was because he was so determined to be more aggressive last night - it was obvious Ed or somebody had been in his ear about really taking it to hoop when he could and he was drawing some fouls doing so after awhile.
I feel like these guys have really figured out how to play together the last few games as the entire team’s passing has greatly improved. There were a couple of plays last night where we were just swinging the ball so quickly we got wide open layups out of OSU’s rotations - Tim benefited from this several times.
I feel like he was put in a tough spot defensively - he was generally the guy that left Craft to double Sullinger and so it looked like he kept getting beaten on that kid’s shooting, but it was his assignment and if their 5th or 6th scoring option is the guy beating you all night you have to live with it sometimes. I wish we had forced him to take slightly tougher shots occasionally but with a team like OSU you have to give up something I guess. We’ll see if he shoots that well in our building.
