- The foul trouble Tech, especially their big man, Aluma, got in, was key here. They went with a four guard line-up and were a donut team without him. Despite their #16 ranking, it was the kind of team we could have a good game against. As we’ve experienced, that doesn’t mean we will do well against a team that has a strong inside presence, (such as Virginia).

- Those pretty passes might not look so pretty against the Cav’s Pack line defense. We better make our treys in that one.

- Buddy B played 39 minutes, missed 10 of 13 shots and scored 7 points. I was surprised he’d played 39 because he didn’t make his presence felt in a lot of those minutes.

- We can’t afford to leave guys open as we did Alleyne in that first half. The Hoos won’t let us overcome that.

- Jesse Edwards got another 2 minutes game and didn’t do anything in those two minutes to suggest it should have been more.

- Is Tech good enough to hold up as a marquee win? Maybe if Aluma stays out of foul trouble. Maybe not.

Two teams with no depth in the front line was decided by who got into foul trouble first. Thankfully it wasn't SU this time!
