Re: 11/23 | #20 Seton Hall Pirates | 6:00PM (ESPNU)

I thought Lassyard looked pretty good despite his three fouls. Played big. Nobody pushed him around. I was excited when he got in the game, showed Dan wasn’t afraid to play him in a big spot. We need bodies during this stretch and he might have to play tonight if we get into foul trouble again or n...

Can't play four guards and Berry alone in the front court. He's too slow to protect the basket and isn't a shot blocking threat. URI looked better today the few times they played two front court players, hope Dan see's that and adjusts.
