Jacksonville State’s road swing gets even harder as they travel to No. 8 Louisville Monday. A look at the matchup by the numbers:
17JSU out-rebounded Marshall, but possibly more impressive is what they did with those rebounds. The Gamecocks turned nine offensive rebounds into 17 points, meaning almost every offensive rebound led to a basket.
82.3%The Gamecocks did a poor job defending inside. Thundering Herd forwards Ryan Taylor and Cheikh Sane combined to shoot 14-17 from the field. If you take out Taylor three-point attempts, they were 13-14 from inside. You simply can’t win when you allow two players to put up those kinds of numbers.
