Unfortunately, SNY decided that the Wagner/UConn game was more important, so I didn't get to watch the Orange lay the smackdown on the Jaspers. Judging from the AP recap and the comments here, though, it appears to have been the dunkfest we were all expecting. Let's get right to the stat lines (Full Box Score).
Triche- MIN FGM-A 3PM-A FTM-A OREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF PTS
Statistically pretty much even, though credit to Waiters for an assist/TO ratio over 2:1 and the 3 steals. I'm also disappointed that Triche suffered the same issue as Waiters did against Fordham; no FT attempts. Not having watched the game, I don't know how much opportunity there was to press the action in the lane, but I'd like for the 2 guard (whoever it may be) to apply a bit of pressure. I'm also a bit disappointed in the relative lack of rebounding from Triche compared to the last game. But Triche is one of those guys that rebounds a lot of his own misses, so shooting better overall from the field will bring down his rebounding numbers a bit.
All in all, Triche played a decent game and Waiters didn't do anything spectacular to pry my vote away from Triche. Cast yours below.
