O'Bryant has gone away from his fading shot and made some moves attacking the basket which have helped him with two consecutive double doubles.
Only took him a year and a half and about 20 consectutive missed fall-aways, but glad he's finally seemed to get it. Now the 18-footers still have to go, cause he ain't making those either.
Best thing is he's boarding now. Hope he keeps that up.
LSU will need a similar effort from Anthony Hickey to win in Rupp. Is it possible? Of course. Likely? Absolutely not.
IMHO Hickey is shooting just a little bit too much. I've noticed the last two games he's made some good moves into the lane and drawn defenders. But where he almost always used to find the open man, he's now taking more of the tougher shots than he used to.
Is it by the coaches direction? Maybe, but I'd like to see him strike more of the balance he used to have pass/shoot. His assist numbers are down a bit too low.
Cats 75-59, but hope we can make it a better game than that.
