From the 5:14 mark of the 2nd half we scored on all of our remaining possessions. That is 8 possessions in a row. That is closing out with a vengeance. The only misses we had in that time period were Royce's 3 that McGee rebounded and the Scott's last free throw after the game was already won. Suffices to say, I think this team learned how to close out games.
I started to post similar. Fred has learned how to handle the last five minutes. He does not let Royce handle it too much when fouls are coming, he lets SC and Tyrus take the free throws, he takes the air out of the ball when ahead, he clears one side for Royce to go one on one, he uses his timeouts wisely, he makes the guards rebound, he switches defenses, he plays to rest the team, and he is totally engaged in the game. This has been a huge improvement from the UNI game.
CFH HMagic bball season.
Let my fred's Four Horsemen ride.
