Ah yes... the Good Snoop. Snoop stuffed the stat sheet last night with 13 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals, and just 1 turnover to lead the Rebels to a 13-point win over a feisty ULM team last night. Snoop - in my view of the world - is the most talented player on the Rebel roster, but also the most frustrating. He'll show flashes of brilliance, then play 10 minutes of either invisible or detrimental basketball. He had just 1 rebound and 8 (8!) turnovers last Sunday against Oregon. Last night though, he played with an aggressive confidence and had - perhaps - his best game as a Rebel.
Marshall Henderson played very much under control and within the gameplan as well. He hit 6 more 3s last night and finished with a game high 26 points. He buried the Warhawks early in the second half with a barrage of 3s in an early 14-2 run that opened up what had been a slim halftime lead.
It wasn't all happy times last night though. The defensive rebounding again was a major concern. One game after allowing MTSU to rebound more than half their missed shots, ULM rebounded 45.5% of their misses last night. Demarco Cox and Aaron Jones played 54 minutes between them and combined for just 9 points and 4 rebounds. Not sure what needs to be done about that, but the "Shoot 'til you make it" defense is not a recipe for success against major competition.
Whatever the case, the Rebs moved to 8-2 on the year and have a few days off before tangling with Mercer on Sunday afternoon.
