Here's what Kent State men's basketball head coach Rob Senderoff noticed after watching the tape of Friday's 92-63 victory over Chicago State at the M.A.C. Center:
n WHAT STOOD OUT
"The unselfishness that we played with. We really took care of the basketball, made simple plays and converted on the break. In our last game, we had six turnovers in transition against Temple, so we did a much better job taking care of the basketball and converting our transition opportunities. Overall, the defensive effort was pretty good. We did a good job again on the glass, which is very important for us. For the most part it was the unselfishness that was the best thing that we did in the game. All of the perimeter guys (senior guards Chris Evans and Randall Holt, and sophomore point guard Kris Brewer) did a great job of moving the basketball; those three guys really did a good job of sharing the ball, and I think that sparked everybody."
n WHAT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT
"We still have to make sure that we continue to defend in the halfcourt, and that we don't overextend too much. We have a tendency to guard guys that don't have the basketball outside the 3-point line, and it just spreads our defense a little too much. I want to make sure we stay compact in the half court defensively."
