Hope everyone is staying dry.

#25 SF/PF Mike Thomas (4-0) — 16 points, 6-11 FG, 0-0 3FG, 4-6 FT
#33 PF Stefan Jankovic (1-3) — 5 points, 2-8 FG, 0-4 3FG, 1-3 FT
#42 PF Isaac Fotu (2-2) — 28 points, 11-19 FG, 3-8 3FG, 1-2 FT

Some observations:
>> Nevels won’t be losing his starting job in the backcourt anytime soon.
>> Fotu, in his first real action of the preseason, was keen to shoot from the outside and got more confident with his jumper as play progressed.
>> Bobbitt wasn’t shooting well, but had several nice steals, a couple in the open court. You could see why he topped the JUCO ranks in that stat last year.
>> Fleming impressed Gib Arnold with his point guard play. The coach indicated previously Fleming would play almost entirely the off-guard spot for the preseason, but that could change if Smith has to miss any time.
>> Smith landed hard on his back while converting a layup early on. He hobbled off and watched the rest of the scrimmage on the side. Arnold thought he might have had a flare-up of his back problem from last season, but didn’t know for sure. If he misses much time, Bobbitt is in the driver’s seat for the starting PG job.
>> Thomas started very strong with nine points in the first 10-minute period. His scoring dipped from there but it was an overall positive showing.
>> Jankovic was rusty in some of his first extended fullcourt play of the preseason coming off his knee ailment.
>> Jovanovic was struggling, but then put together four straight hook shot buckets for his squad in the final 10-minute period.
>> Enos, Buscher and Stepteau were the “reserves” during the scrimmages, though Enos stepped into his teams’ first fives once Smith went out.

    How about rebounds, assists, blocked shots, and steals?

    Didn’t take those this time OkiDog. I think I’ll try next time they do one of these.
