McCarty is trying to build his confidence, hopefully in the long run it will pay off, but he did hurt us today, there's no way around it. He knows Kuhlman is a vital part of this offense working because he needs a perimeter threat at that spot.
Frederking never was really out there enough to do anything, picked up quick fouls and never even attempted a shot. I agree with Goacesgo..he'll be good and he's already had some big moments this year. I'm not that worried about him.
Riley made some big plays, but he does over dribble and he gets caught up in the air too much.
Overall, it's disappointing to lose, but at least we are close. Clean a few things up and there will be wins in MVC play. It's much better than trouncing though a crap schedule at home and getting nothing out of it, or getting blown out by 20 every night. Given what is available this year 6-7, against this schedule really isn't bad at all. I honestly expected much worse. MVC play will be interesting.
The only reasons I think D.C. is not in the game at the are 1. I think Kuhlman roaming around the 3 point line opens up the middle for Riley to drive to the basket easier which did result in most of are points down the stretch it, opened the middle. 2. Kuhlman is a better passer and free throw shooter than D.C.
