Opening game thoughts

I wished I would have seen more of Dallas but the short stint he got, he looked uncomfortable. Hopefully he can make progress as year goes along and give the team some minutes.

I hated Bey's body language. So emotional and frustrated. He's always been a bit of an up and down player but we've seen him bounce back before and he did respond late so i'm not too concerned.

Kin was great. House's kid is a defensive menace but Kin was only guy able to get past him and break down defense consistently. One play sticks out: 1st half, Wright got hand in face of 3 point shooter, forced miss and was still able to get back in paint and get the rebound. When your best player makes plays like that, it has to resonate in film study with the entire team.

The difference I see in Schwartz this year is confidence. He gained some late last year and seems to have built on it this offseason. Maddox and Siewert had productive minutes and Kountz wasn't at his best but he'll finish better. Gatling could find his minutes severely cut this year. Just not sure how he fits with this team. They want him to be back up point, but he's serviceable at best in that role.

I actually like this Ariz. State team. the 2 freshman Graham and House are good. With Cherry and Romelo back, they will be a problem.

All in all good win, some sloppy play but I bet deep down Tad is pleased cuz he knows team got "W" with their C+ maybe B- game and there are plenty of "teaching moments" and things to work on.
