How good has Shabazz been lately? His UCLA is unranked and I havent heard much new of him.
Pretty good. He definitely is a dominant force out there. Knows he's the best on the court and now that he's more comfortable out there, the stats are coming along too. Not good for opponent when a player has super athleticism/finishing and a pure shot.
Game of the year so far. Interesting to see if UCLA can play this well as a team going forward. Shabazz scored 27 I think, but he could have had a lot more. Wasn't really assertive towards the end of regulation. With the talent they have, they should be sharing the ball, but when he's on, he should have the green light go on in his head. Fine line between quality and quantity though.
Pressey had a great game overall, but was kinda stagnant towards the end. Also, Imagine of Bowers was healthy last season? lol
Both teams did a great job spreading the floor as well. With a passer like Pressey, the offense is deadly. With the good outside shooting of UCLA and if the Ware twins play as they did regularly, the paint can be really open for them.
