EqPts = a take-off of the Net Equivalent Points idea discussed last week. Taking points, assists, rebounds (offensive & defensive), steals, blocks, turnovers and fouls into account, the team's points are re-distributed to figure out who had the biggest impact on the game itself, instead of just how many balls a player put through a basket. I can go into detail on the formula if anybody asks, but for now just know that that was the intent.

  • If the Illinois game was a "correction", then...this one undid the work of the Illinois game. Stuff went mostly right for everybody not named "Lawrence," "Moore" or "Taylor."
  • Way to freaking go, Kimmie English--I know this was SIU-Edwardsville, but...five assists! Love seeing that...especially in light of another clunker from Matt Lawrence. M-Law didn't have to do much today obviously...and he sure didn't.
  • Love Laurence Bowers' line. I'm still kind of wanting to see him get a few more of Safford's and Ramsey's minutes against real opponents, just to see how he does.
  • DeMarre is definitely fitting into an all-or-nothing role. Against teams with good post defenders, he does next to nothing. Against lesser teams, he is unfreakingstoppable. Lucky for us, I guess, there aren't a ton of good post teams in the Big 12. Georgia's two best players are forwards, but they're only 6'7/220 (Terrance Woodbury) and 6'8/245 (freshman Howard Thompkins).
