Good week establishing a terrific defense inside the arc !
Maybe they have established who they are.
IMO we have one of the dominant centers. I remember the first time i saw Marfo. He was a freshman at Georg Washington, and came to Rhode Island and dominated Hassan Martin leading to a big upset......We have had a string of great rebounders at Quinnipiac. Marfo's size, with his great footwork, and instincts is a show worth the price of admission.
We learned Sunday against Fairfield that we don't need to throw up 30+ 3s to win. We controlled the game in the paint.......Even though we shot over 30 3s against Rider, good 2 point defense was the difference.
A barrage of long 3's, when missed, can lead to long defensive rebounds for your opponent, leading to quick run out baskets on the other end. The style of play in the Fairfield game, fit us well.
