A couple of observations:
- Free Throw shooting has got to improve. When you have 43 free throw opportunities, you should win by far more than 10 when the team isn't fouling to keep apace at the end of the game. 38% in the first half. Not good.
- Nice to see a couple of 15+ point scorers.
- Awesome to see the team not fold when Travis Leslie fouled out with 3:29 left. Leslie was leading the team in scoring when he left.
- Foul trouble concerns me a bit. On one hand, it is good to see aggressive defense, on the other, some of the fouls were the result of a lack of backside help and not getting into position in the zone.
- Price got 17 points in 17 mins. Gotta figure out a way to keep him on the court more by staying out of foul trouble.
- Conor Nolte put up
5434 of the best minutes he could have. He only had five points, but he played scrappy defense and took a charge later in the game that turned a potential Colorado run into a blip.
