Ryle actually runs pretty good stuff. The problem is they do not make enough layups, they don’t make enough three pointers, they don’t make enough free throws, and they don’t get enough rebounds. They’re in the correct position on offense and defense, but can’t finish the play consistently. If they could hit a few more shots and get a few more rebounds, then they could pull off an upset against one of the better teams in the region. Raiders got enough stops tonight to win, but they just couldn’t score on back to back possessions, They also go through long stretches where Rankin does not touch the ball.
This was my first time seeing Lloyd in-person. They have a lot of athleticism and play a really good half-court Man to Man defense.I really liked Zaire Monroe. He Is athletic and has a decent shot. He brings a level of intensity that to the rest of the team feeds off of. I did not mention Monro anywhere in my preseason team preview or player rankings. He probably deserved some recognition.
