UNC-Ashville, 79-58. Still a solid effort.
Ricky McPhee scored a career high 20 and was 4 of 5 from behind the arc. Leslie and Thompkins added 17 and 16 respectively. Albert Jackson picked up 10 points and two blocks, as well.
Eleven players picked up double digit minutes for Coach Fox and 13 total saw action. The Dawgs shot 51% from the floor and 90% from the free throw line.
Now that we have a plan, it all needs to come together. Better free throw shooting and a respectible 3pt shooting % will make a lot of teams think twice about runing zone traps and daring the Dawgs to drive or shoot from the perimeter. I'm not crazy enough to think we can make a legit run at the SEC East title, but I am crazy enough to think we'll be competitive in any game we shoot the ball well from the perimeter and make free throws.
That would be a nice change.
Friday night against the Gamecocks would be nice. Jacksonville State Gamecocks. Tip is at 7pm.
