I think it went unnoticed but Tamari had 4 steals the first half.  I like the way he can drive to the hoop in the 2nd half.  X playing much better after he hit that 3 to end the half.  I have not seen Garvin Clarke.  Is he injured?

He's in sweats on the bench.  No idea if injured.

Fantastic second half. Great D all night. Offense was paaaaaiinful in the first half. But Enrique came out like a bat out of hell in the 2nd half, playing unselfishly and mostly smart, and that was the difference. Kobe has surpassed Nate Johnson in production all of a sudden. And Tavari will be a force until someone forced him to go to the left. Nice win!

If my memory serves me right Tavari can drive and finish with both hands. I watched some of his high school game videos awhile back. Hopefully he will display more of that as he gets comfortable at this level.

 

Edit: 12:38 marker in the second half Tavari does drive and finish with his left hand. I think he is going to be special.

This team needs Tavari to be a special freshman if they are going to be in the hunt for the MACC. Him and X are the only guys on the court that can get their shot off from the bounce. Plus he gives X some time to rest off ball. 

Defensively this team really misses Ali and Dawson's length. The effort is there though. 

The MAC is pretty weak (Even for MAC standards) so I expect them to get better as the season goes on and be in the mix. 

Was sad to the the crowd. Covid scared all the blue hairs away and it looks like they never came back.

Sammy Hunter break out game!

 

I’ll say this regarding Freeman, and this is strictly based off feel instead of stats, so I may be off base, but we need more from him. Feels like he’s not really close to the form he was in at the end of last season. The impact plays don’t stick out as much.

Message board wanted my head when I said he needed to play better lol be careful.

Tamari is quickly becoming my favorite Zip with his ability to penetrate and also to get Freeman the ball and get him some easy shots.  He needs to be confident when he starts the game as he looks now.  

Hey if he’s going to be your favorite player let’s try spelling his name correctly

I thought he played well in the 2nd half after that comment. Like I said, unsure if his play has really dropped down a level from the end of last year or not, but that's just the feel I get. Stats could say I'm wrong and I could just be taking his play for granted. He has higher expectations than everyone else on the team (not that others don't need to be all stars in their role), fair or not. We're counting on him.

That crowd stopped coming when KD left for Duquesne, long before Covid.  They've missed some damn good basketball.

Yup. And just as Groce built momentum up--had the rough year in 2018 with some flashes of good, a much better and few close losses from a bye year in 2019 that included blowing out Kent at home (most fun I've ever had in that building), and of course the incredible 2020 season--COVID hit and no fans were in the building for two years. Nobody was there to see LCJ's magic in his final season. And last year's team dragged a** until the very end of the year. So hard to get people to come, and come back regularly.

You're right. Unfortunately I was coming here to note that we got 18 entirely unproductive minutes from Kobe.  0 points (on 0-4 shooting), 0 free throw attempts, 0 rebounds, 0 assists, 0 turnovers (there's a plus), 0 blocks, 0 steals.  Oh, wait... 1 foul. There's a sign of life! 😂

 

At least Kobe took 4 shots. He's still hesitant. Maybe he'll come around. We need another consistent threat from 3.

 

When Hunter was hitting 3's you could see the potential of the team.

With the location of the JAR the only people that come are the diehard Zips fans. The JAR's a pain in the neck to get to.  

 

We need a proper arena across Main Street from Canal Park.

The JAR is 1000 feet off an exit from a major freeway.  Granted, the construction on the central interchange is a pain, but really?Come On Reaction GIF by GIPHY News
