Incredible turnaround from last week. Guys playing as expected. Van Eyck played very well this weekend, just what his video and JUCO stats suggested. 11 rebounds 2 steals 2 assists, with solid defense. played D on Taliaferro most of the game holding him to 1-7 from three.
Have to assume Thiam was out injured all week. Risto was out there warming up and stretching so have no idea what the story is with him, just amazing he didn't get in if not injured. I get the entire shortening the rotation at this time of the year, but will need some contribution from the bench.
What a great weekend, didn't see this coming
You won't see much of Risto or Thiam the rest of the way.

Taking a quick look, Manhattan is pretty much a must win to stay out of the PIG.
IW is really interesting. With all of the hype that surrounds him as well as the crazy following with 700K followers on IG and Twitter, he is so calm on the court. You rarely see flexing after a tough layup or throwing up the three fingers after a made three. He just puts his head down and plays defense. I like that..lol
