Certainly was a complete team effort yesterday. One of the enormous factors that contributed to the win, though, was staying out of foul trouble, especially in the paint. When TK and JG only end with 3 fouls apiece, that’s a real positive towards a win.
Reed seemed to switch to a 3-guard lineup in order to get BA those extra minutes. Not sure if we’ll be able to do that against many more teams the rest of the way. Was a weird game because while AP had a below-average game overall, he did get a hot streak from 3 at the end of the first half that allowed Lehigh to keep a critical lead. TK, too, put the team on his back in the first half when nothing was falling. (I thought he had a double-double, with 10 boards? The box score reads 9.)
On paper the Hoops Rivalry looks like Lafayette plays into one of our biggest weaknesses, perimeter defense. But it’s the Rivalry. We’ll see. Personally it would be damned nice to beat them at Kirby to wash away some of the disappointment of 150.
