Since there was a lot of talk about Asadullah pregame... how did he do? From my pregame post:
"Here are his stats this year, ASUN conference play only:
16.2 points per game (3rd)
62.7% FG shooting (1st) wow that is high
8 rebounds per game (2nd)
2.8 assists per game (8th)"
Game 1 vs KSU:
75% FG shooting
I also mentioned 52% from the FT line - he was 5 of 5. He bested all of his averages.
What really impressed me most, is that he didn't force any shots. If its not there or he sees someone open he will pass. One-on-one we could not stop him, we had some success on double teams where a guard came in (Burden) and made it difficult for him to keep the ball.
Overall, our first half was really good, Lipscomb built up a nice lead early in the 2nd half, but we were able to close it somewhat to make the game interesting.
Spencer Rodgers, did not have his typical game offensively. No criticism there, that just happens sometimes, we didn't get enough scoring from the other guys to fill in the void. Only 31% from the field in the 2nd half.
The last few series, we have had a better game 2, so maybe we can get something going Saturday night.
