Aaron Brown gives us a preview of what he can do. Yes, the 3-pointer late in OT was all class, but he did much more than that. Brown also showed some versatility on the court, even creating his own shot from the corner. Brown grabbed a few rebounds and actually hit some free throws. Brown was also active on top of the 1-3-1. The freshmen have all stepped up at certain times this year. Now it's time for them all to take that next step.
Deniz Kilicli did something rare last night, and he did it twice. Seriously, who travels after getting a rebound? And, who does twice in one game? Well, the Turk did. Call it a lack of toughness or a lack of concentration. Whatever it was it can't happen again. And, I have a feeling Huggs will make sure it doesn't happen again. It's too bad it did occur last night. It overshadowed what was a very nice half of basketball for Kilicli.
Frank Martin scares the hell out of me. Huggs may yell and look pissed, but Martin takes it to another level. He is like a nuclear explosion combined with a hurricane...just straight demonic rage. Seems like a good coach though. Kansas State has played well under him. On a side note, why do college football coaches get chastised for yelling at kids, but never college hoops coaches?
