Ali started off - as did Hands, imo - a bit out of control. Touch the ball = shoot the ball. After that initial play, though, Ali pulled back and played under control, looked to play defense and to set his teammates up on offense. Took Hands a bit longer but he too through the 2nd half was playing within himself. Bernard and Singleton played to fit in (a bit unlike Bernard during the exhibition). And Bernard had some good feeds to Brown, also.

These kids are very talented. If, through only pre-season coaching, they already will pull it back and play within themselves, i think we're in very good shape for this coming season (considered, of course, with all your observations esp. about Brown and Wilkes and Hands, the team's "big three." And add to what you said about Hill, the return of Riley will double the elements Hill already provides and Olesinski's return adds in experience as well as flexibility up front for those nights when opponents are tougher and our freshmen play more 'freshmanly'....
