In an otherwise unremarkable game, Saturday's game against MVSU marked the season debut of Snoop White, who provided the Rebels with something they've lacked all season - consistent 3 point shooting. While I doubt he puts up 16 points on even a semi-regular basis, if he can knock down a couple of 3s a game, it will help unclog the middle of the 2-3 zone defenses any team with a half a brain will use against us.
White's emergence and the pending arrival of Kendrick (who had a late final and a professor in no big hurry to get grades posted) could spell the end of any meaningful playing time for Aniefiok. I thought before the season it would be great to redshirt him, but with neither Snoop nor Kendrick available, I guess the staff felt like they needed a warm body out there. I don't know how many more meaningful minutes he'll play this year, unless it's an offense defense situation like we used late in the Miami game when Summers had 4 fouls.
Anyway, on to the numbers...
+/- against MVSU (Top 9 Players only)
No surprises here. White was fantastic, not just scoring but distributing as well. And good things just happen when Nick Williams is on the floor. He's not going to wow anybody, but he's at or near the top of the +/- list after nearly every game. After a while, it's not a coincidence. Reggie was an absolute monster and Terrance made a couple of moves that simultaneously remind you why he's projected as an NBA draft pick and frustrate you to the core that he won't play like that all the damn time.
