A Ho Hum Methodical Win: Ben Ball Post Game Thread

Yes, Diane there was some showy shotmaking thanks to Josh, AA.

There was a dominating dunk (by AA2).

And, thank God, there was some pretty good FT shooting (Shipp getting serious going 8-8 from the charity line).

The Number 1 Bruins bump their record to 10-0 with a ho hum, methodical 75-61 (AP recap and boxscore) win over a solid mid-major team.

Yes, they still need to work on their game. They need to come out more energized from the tip off. They were a little sloppy for my taste at times during the first half. Yet, they played good defense, didn't let up, and wore down yet another opponent with the classic trademark intense Howland D.

The Bruins also had an efficient night offensively, shooting 54 percent from the floor. Shipp led the team with 18 points with two others scoring in double figures.

As mentioned above, it was good to see them shooting well from the FT line. It was good to see Keefe getting some confidence, making some good plays and getting decent time off the bench. Westbrook provided some spark off the bench in first half. All in all, not bad as the Bruins head towards a big Saturday. What did you think? This is our post game thread.
