Default How about that Brady Manek?

Great to see his break out tonight. That has to be his best shooting game outside the confines of LNC in quite some time.

And while I'm at it, how about that Matt Freeman? Many had written him off (far too soon, I felt), but he's been a contributor so far this season. Not a major one (until tonight), but he's had a decent play or three in most of our games. Hopefully, tonight will prove a launching pad for even better things for him going forward.

wanted to give freeman some love for stepping up when he was needed, but I didn't want to hijack the thread. glad you mentioned him, he deserves it.

He sure does -- 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting (3 from deep), 4 rebounds, 2 blocks and an assist off the bench. I'll take that every time.

when I saw Mooney abuse Polla by running out to the line I wondered if Freeman was fleet afoot enough to stay on him. I thought he showed pretty well for himself with good activity and awareness defensively.

Freeman is shooting 50pct from 3 and playing well. I don't know if it will continue though. I'm afraid teams will now not help off of him and play tight. He's pretty slow and I don't know if I have ever seen him drive or make a good low post move ever. If he can come in and play 10-14mins a night and hit 1-2 shots a game that's all we need. Manek was awesome tonight! Very excited for this team and for the future!

When he first came here I expected Freeman to be more athletic than he is. Knowing his game better now, I think he is maximizing his potential to this team. Hit a few spot up 3's, provide some height and maybe a few rebounds and a block or two. Good for him, I'm glad to see him having some success and helping the team. And by the way, they certainly look like a TEAM this year. Really fun to watch.

Freeman's had a few impressive passes this season, too.

Manek was fantastic last night.

Freeman is showing that he can be a contributor. You can tell that the game has slowed down for him. It took him a long time to get accustomed to the speed of the game over here but he's starting to figure it out.

Manek has been looking for open looks where he had enough space to take a good shot and he made the best of it last night.

Very true!

His defense seems awful though. He and Polla got continually worked

Good point! He passed up a few good looks throughout the night. Seems like a guy that gets it and knows how to play the game the right way!

Manek had a good game. Need to have someone else throw the ball from out of bounds. He froze at the end of the game and didn't call time out and it was a turnover. TV showed Lon signaling him to call time out.
