On target. I would allocate minutes for Vide as well out of Lazar’s way too many. Could it be any worse? Also, Bona benefited last year by playing with talented and experienced teammates. Having less accomplished players around him highlights his weaknesses.

Just home from the game and I couldn't agree more regarding our best lineup!

We all noticed how the intensity on the defensive end of the floor increased when Fibleuil checked in and how he and Williams were both much better at recovering in rotation when Young was attacking Bona on switches, which slowed him down and made him give up the ball, a big part of how that 10+ minutes they went without a field goal started and we closed from 20 to 2

We have to live with any of Mack's defensive shortcomings since his ability to get to the rim and the line are the closest thing we have to a "go get a bucket" with this roster

Thank you, Dmitri, and Merry Christmas. Nice write up. And yes Mack seems to be the only one willing and able to take it to the basket. Walton was shouting all night at Bona for playing to far out from the basket on defense. Yes I wish Adem had Bill's game savvy. The rest of the season is garbage time, so yes give those others more minutes on the floor to experience NCAA basketball.
