Battle was great with 32 points and 8 rebounds, but only 3-10 from the FT line.
Jackson was solid with 12 points and 7 rebounds. He’ll never be a star but he plays hard and to the best of his ability.
Frazier has to look to shoot the ball both inside and out. He is quick enough to take his man to the basket and draw the foul. I don’t know about his perimeter shooting, but he’s got to try. He was 1-5 from the field, but you can tell that he was reluctant to shoot on a couple of his misses.
Jones played a little better in the first half then got some unlucky fouls. 7 pts, 5 rebounds, and 2 blocks is OK but we need more.
I have no use for Brooks. He was once again schooled on defense. His offense is soft - all from the perimeter. 2pts and 1 rebound is a disaster IMO.
- Ott played as well as he could.
- No comment on Woodyard.
- Babb had 6 rebounds but was otherwise horrible. 1-7 from the field. Intentional foul. Double teamed Delaney on late OOB situation to deny him the ball and Babb let Delaney split him & Frazier.
- Edwards 2 pts and 2 rebounds. He lacks discipline but Ed has to get him more minutes. PSU has nobody else who can score down low.
The difference in this game was once again the big men. Jeff Allen had 12 points and 10 rebounds for VT. PSU had no answer for him defensively. Our bigs used up a lot of fouls on him and that got VT in the double penalty early.
