    Was it just me, or did J-Hop's stroke look better today? The shots weren't falling, but it looked like he was elevating better and snapping his wrist with some purpose, instead of those little arching floaters from behind the arc that we've seen all year.

    I didn't notice but it wouldn't surprise me. Tad has a history of developing players and I think we will see him use this years situation to do just that with a number of our younger guys.

    On the other hand USC is just so plain bad that it's hard to make an accurate judgement of anything against them. If Scott had wanted to he could have had 40, Ski could have had open shots whenever he wanted to, etc. etc.

    This was a good game for the Buffs to get comfortable without the guys they just lost. This roster is talented top to bottom with guys still coming off the bench who prior to Tad would have been close to the most talented guy on the team. We still are going to be more up and down that we expected this year but somebody isn't going to be happy to see us when the conference tourney rolls around because by that time we will be a better team than our record says we are.

    One of the biggest changes I'd like to see this offseason is J-Hop's shooting form. He needs to raise his release point. It needs to be more eye-level. He played better today, no doubt, but I'm not sure his stroke looked any better to me.
