What we are is a high energy, pressure D, aggressive rebounding, and hope to get a second shot on the boards team. The highs will be high, and the lows will be head scratching. I do believe though, that this is probably the best group of shooting guards we've had since Frank's been here. So, it doesn't surprise me that we are launching, what appears to be, an inordinate amount of 3's.
With Jake, McGruder, Spradling, Irving/Russell (new found confidence shooting)....I think this is simply a better shooting team than any we've seen recently at KSU. Therefore, they're going to shoot more and make more. It should help open things up inside as time goes on and teams scout accordingly.
If we can keep Plumlees off the glass and contain Singler, I like out chances. I'll be interested to see if the KSU pressure d affects Duke and/or turns into a foul fest. Either way, it gives the Cats a great chance to see where they are, with two top 25 wins already in their pocket.
