- One of the things I’ve always enjoyed about Wisconsin Lutheran teams is their constant high effort under Coach Ryan Walz and his father Dale Walz before him. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen a team handle the pressure from Wisconsin Lutheran in the first half only to see that same team turn the ball over again and again in the second quarter. The pressure and effort on the defensive end is constant throughout all games and that is a testament to great coaching.
- Anthony Carver does a really nice job on the glass. He is only 6’3”, but you would think he is nearly seven feet tall. He does a really great job with his body and is just one of those players that really understands where rebounds will fall and how to position himself for those rebounds.
- Marquette junior Garrison Goode is a very intriguing player. At 6’7”, Griffin has the frame play down low and has a ton of athleticism. He could be a solid player going forward.
- Wisconsin Lutheran senior Jamare’ Griffin is smooth going to the rack. He really did a nice job finishing in the open court.
- The efficiency in which Wisconsin Lutheran converts a turnover into points is staggering.
