After watching this game, even though I never do this sort of thing I thought I would give my thoughts. Obviously can´t take into account the opposition and we need to set our own standards...
Gliddon - 9
Outstanding, shot the ball well and controlled the team. We looked a bit rattled when he was off the floor.
Cadee - 8
Got good looks, knocked it down and was a scoring threat but still had some typical Cadee out of control moments
Kickert - 5
Hit some shots late and was aggressive but missed easy ones, often the ball froze with him and was beaten defensively.
Hodgson - 8
Could be a 9, dominated but was a man against boys. Was strong inside and our best interior presence.
Creek - 5
Scored a bit late when the game was done. Needs to stick to what he does best, particularly run the lanes. In the half court took poor options and was flustered handling the ball at the 3.
McCarron - 9
Couldn´t decide on 8 or 9 but was outstanding. Stuck to what he does best, took high quality shots, active on D and on the boards and ran the lanes.
Newley - 6
Anderson took the night off, Newley basically also did while playing. Wasn´t bad just didn´t do much, will slowly build into the tournament.
Kay - 8
Looked nervous early but settled into his rhythm making good passes against the zone, scoring inside and dropping a 3 with his feet set. Good signs.
Brandt - 6
Big body and big presence but looked almost deer in the headlights at times offensively. Had the ability to have the inside presence of Hodgon but didn´t.
Norton - 7
Maybe could have been a 5 or 6 based on his somewhat rattled offence, but I am basing it on D which is why he is there. Was active and disruptive.
Blanchfield - N/A
This one is a head scratcher so I am not rating him. Assumed Lemanis was giving Blanchfield the night off along with Anderson then suddenly played Blanchfield in the 4th. I think he´d put Todd to sleep so he didn´t do much when he came in and fair enough. Surely Lemanis doesn´t rate him behind the other wings?? Interesting..
