I feel that both D’s dominated last night

We forced Memphis to play half-court O. We slowed them down. We limited their fast-break (other than from steals). We kept their points to a season low.

Their on-ball, full-court pressure on Storm made it hard to get into our rhythm/flow. Their aggressive D limited our passing lanes. Their rim protection took away our ability to drive and intimidated our post play.

I think that our D played well-enough to win, and our O almost did. I am hopeful that will learn from this game, and be able to apply it to long, athletic teams on our schedule (like Duke, FSU).
