I think a huge thing for UVM is limiting points off turnovers. Q had only 5 points off turnovers. Its one thing to turn it over but another thing to turn it over and have the opponent take it the other way for 2 points. That's what kills a team.
All turnovers kill a team. Especially a team that runs a controlled offense that limits possessions like UVM. We work hard to run our system and to not get a FG attempt off and just give the ball back to the other team works heavily against us.

But yes, giving up easy points in transition off turnovers is something every team wants to avoid.

He's really starting get comfortable playing significant minutes for the first time in his college career.
+1

Rusin has had some frustrating moments but he's a terrific outside shooter. If he can cut down his turnovers and increase FT % he'll be fine.

I honestly don't think Trey Blue can be playing any better in the role we're asking from him. Hasn't shown up every night- but has majority of nights and when he has he's been terrific IMO.

I feel pretty good when both of these guys are out there- especially when either has an open look- they're both snipers.

Trey Blue has been really good for us. He has outplayed Rusin in most games so far.

Totally agree with this. Hopefully Rusin starts settling in a bit, but so far it has been a shaky start. Of course, he is not the only one on the team I could say that about.

Re: UVM @ Quinnipiac 12/8 4pm

Rusin is scoring 8+ points per game, so he's being productive. I guess our expectations, and probably not his either, just aren't being filled.

Blue is showing continuous improvement on defense, shooting well, making passes and hitting free throws. I didn't really have firm expectations, so it's easier to be happy with the results.

Re: UVM @ Quinnipiac 12/8 4pm

Remember the Harvard game? That's the team I want every game! Extra passes, plenty of assists, better ball handling.

I didn't expect the team to enter conference play with an amazing record. I mean, no Mount Ida on the schedule. But seriously, to put together a team in the off-season that has this much potential is one thing. Getting the team to gel and execute is another thing altogether. Gotta hope the kinks get worked out over the next 4 games and team starts becoming more consistent.

Sure all turnovers kill a team. A turnover that doesnt lead to a fast break on the other end though is just like a missed shot. It's not that bad. Obviously these turnovers that are extra missed shots don't help a team at all.

Turnovers that lead to fast break points really kill a team. I think its night and day compared to a regular turnover. IF sandro turns the ball over twice against Towson and Towson doesnt get easy points out of it we still could of won that game. I think our defense had a chance to make a stop and get us the ball back with a tied game atleast.
