    Forget the stat line. It's forgettable.

    But he is a defensive stopper.

    Against Baylor, he removed Heslip from the game. Tonight against Murray State, he turned Wilson into a non-factor.

    If we can count on Chen taking the other team's best wing scorer out of the game every time out, this is going to be a special season.

    "This is a mismatch. Chen has no lateral quickness."

    Through the first four games he's giving us almost 6pts 3reb 1asst per game. Especially solid tonight with 8pts 5rebs. And, obviously, the kid knows how to play some lockdown defense.

    Agree. Great defense, though I'd like to see him throw sharper passes at times.

    His defense is ridiculous. Lock down those two guys in consecutive games. Plus, the hair.

    I also thought it wa interesting that they thought they could hide Canaan on him when he had 4 fouls, but then Sabatino had one of the easiest buckets of the game. He's not a dynamic scorer, but you do actually have to play defense on him.

    that is a very dangerous play... that is how black holes get formed.

    He also gives the team another capable ball handler. That's critical for late game situations when the Buffs are ahead and the opponent is pressing.
