All in all, for the first action of the year, I'm pretty happy. Awesome to finally see this group on the court. Really encouraged that the turnovers were cut down compared to early on last year (just 10 total and only 2 in the 2nd half). Love the depth and athleticism of the roster. They do need to improve a bit on rebounds and definitely need to get stronger going to the rim, they (especially Herb), missed way to many shots at the rim. But, Bama still scored 42 points in the paint, not shabby. The free throws and 3's will be fine, IMO, however (and I have no stats to back this up) it seems like Petty is a much more effective 3 point shooter off a pass than off a dribble. Herb is Herb on defense. Quinnerly is what he was advertised. Shackelford is fun to watch. Some of the new guys will make an impact. Reese needs to really step it up soon to keep his minutes.
