I'll give Coach Menzies the first word here.
"That is the best 3-11 team in the United States, trust me."
Fortunately for Menzies, his team is just as capable of shooting the 3 as any team they have faced or will face the remainder of the season. Both teams were 41 percent from long range.
I asked Menzies about the slow down game, and he was right that they were scoring or getting good looks even after waiting until the shot clock wound down. My only gripe is that the Aggies aren't a defensive team and taking the air out of the ball doesn't do any good when you give up a wide open 3 at the other end does it? That's how Boise stuck around.
I hope tonight's game puts an end to any remaining Troy Gillenwater should start arguments. Troy is great coming off the bench giving Rahman rest and he will certainly be in the game when it matters most late in games, but Wendell nearly equaled Troy's rebounding total (5) in eight fewer minutes and Rahman was the only Aggie with a double-double. Troy is a good shot blocker, but I would rather have rebounding. You give a team that many follow shots and it gets them going early I think.
The Aggies did a good job beating the last two WAC teams handily so I guess three straight blowouts was too much to ask for, but are you concerned at all heading back on the road this week?
