It appears your glass is filling up!

Good points...a few of my observations:

1. Battey is our first legit inside presence on offense in years. You could instantly tell we had a mismatch at the 5 that we could exploit all night...which helped to free up our perimeter game. We won't have that same advantage against ASU with their big bodies.

2. I was surprised Utah didn't attempt some pressure coming off the OSU game. Like you said, MW4 could do anything he wanted.

3. I wonder how comfortable Bey is in his more limited role on offense. He's pretty temperamental and may not be satisfied for long. To his credit, he's still very strong on D.

4. Daniels is looking increasingly more comfortable spelling D'Shawn. Your point about a backup PG was evident yesterday...Gatling still has to grow in that role. Kountz may be the better option...

5. Perhaps I'm reading too much into it, but Strating may have moved ahead of Walton in the rotation.

6. Fully agree that we kept the starters in too long at the end. I found it strange that Tad went deep in his bench early, but had our most valuable pieces out there long after the outcome was determined. But you're right, minor complaint.

7. These Sunday afternoon games are a bit strange, but they appear to be helping to build interest in the community. Lots of families.

8. Let's see those retro jerseys again!
