TSU Men’s face their biggest challenge in quite some time playing and they have to do it in the famed Cameron Indoor. Here a few things TSU must overcome to even hang around with Duke.
Keep those Cameron Crazies Quiet
Probably the most intimidating bunch of folks. I am sure they will make a whole bunch jokes about our team.
Make Outside Shots
TSU Men currently average 37% from 3 point land. Delano Spencer and Darreon Reddick are going to need to have a great shooting night to keep us close. We average 71 points per game. That won’t be enough. Our bigs also need to make a few base line jumpers to open up the driving lanes for the guards.
This probably the biggest concern going into this game. We average 15 TO a game. We can’t let them have extra scoring opportunities.
Easy Transition Baskets
We need to make sure we are getting a few easy baskets. Many of our shots are highly contested, which is evident by our low field goal percentage. Let’s get a few rebounds and a few steals and get the ball up the court quickly for easy scores. We will need it because Duke is a very good defensive team as well.
