I hate to be the one shitting on Al Freeman all the time and he did have a good offensive game against UNC, but he remains our worst defensive guard besides sam hunt. He consistently gets beat on the dribble and loses his man under the basket and in transition.

I'm not putting this game on him, and I definitely don't think Batts is the savior. That said, we have consistently played our best games when Freeman gets ~18 min a game and not ~34. There is no arguing that. Now, I tend to think there is a pretty strong cause and effect there, especially in games when he shoots like dogshit (which is the norm btw).

I think that whatever deficiencies Batts has in his shooting, he makes up for in defensive intensity and transition points.

I was about to lament the fact that we don't have Giglio YP plus minus stats for our players when I went googling.

Batts has a higher defensive box plus minus, offensive box plus minus and overall plus minus higher than Freeman. He has a higher offensive rating and a better defensive rating than Freeman.

Do I think Batts causes us to win that game? Probably not. Our bigs got roasted by a walkon. Do I think the only way we make the NCAAs this year is for Freeman to go back to a reduced role and Batts to get more burn? Definitely.

"anybody notice the new “2017 National Champion UNC Tar Heels” sigh that’s up on 40 after Harrison, right before the Wade split? there’s also up up at 540.

they’re legit-looking signs. super odd placement."


apparently they (Rams Club?) put them up all over the state, near other schools. They took down one near UNC-Charlotte after a bunch of students complained.
