Cassius has been huge 14 points on 7 shots. 7 assists 5 boards, 2 turnovers. And 4-4 from 3. He's our best shooter.

I agree with you that it's not the ankle. He's not favoring it a bit.

I think it was Seth Greenberg that just said it, but this is Winstonís team. Heís the guy that makes this team go.

We win by 20 and we still have so many sloppy turnovers. If they cut down in those this team will have a shot at the national championship. I really think itís Duke MSU and everyone else as of now.

Man Bridges needs to drive the ball a lot more, settles for way too many contested jumpers. Still a great win, Defense has been unreal so far this year. Way too many turnovers though, drives me insane.

Agree on Miles, I think a lot of what you're seeing is Miles at the 3 vs Miles at the 4. As a 4, he had a step on the people that were guarding him. At the 3, it's a different story. He did have a few great assists to Cassius, he shot well but he was wide open when the defense collapsed on Miles on a drive.

I think this team is much better in the short term with Miles at the 4, but for them to be a championship caliber team they're better with him at the 3 so he can be on the floor with Ward and Jackson. The good thing is that we have a soft schedule for the next month, 2 big ten bottom feeders and 5 cupcakes at home so we can work on him at the 3 more without losing games.

Agree with all of that, Bridges is still getting used to playing the 3, what the offense needs to do though is run some plays where the D can't switch that end with Bridges getting the ball in the post against a 3. Not worried about Bridges in the least right now, I think him sort of struggling right now will make us a better team. Cassius and Langford have taken big leaps and they could lead this team to a title with Miles playing a lesser role, but I think Miles will be the focus of the offense in another 4-6 weeks anyway.

It's really stunning when you start to look at the talent on the team, we really have everything you could want now that it's been shown that JJJ can guard out on the floor, and Winston has improved as a defender. Winston held 2 of the top few PGs in the country in check the last 2 games, huge progress from him at that end.
