Turnovers and fouls are killing us. Hopefully we can clean those up a bit, doesnt take much to cut down on 2 turnovers and 4 fouls per game.

I’d like to see steals per game honestly. Auburn defenses since at least Harper/Bryce played very handsy. But those two were pretty smart pickpockets I’ve felt. 

TOs have kinda been the way these last few PG-less (basically 2019 to now, sans the Sharife stretch) squads have generated any type of consistent transition threat. So I understand why they gamble for steals so much. But I feel like that’s where the highest source of preventable fouls come from. Broome just reaching up when a big has the ball protected from him 16 feet from the basket. Wendell is becoming smarter off when he tries to steal but he used to have a couple random jabs at the ball early on. Cardwell always has one or two plays a game where he just throws an arm out there that’s not even close to where the ball is going (and pretty much has always had that going back). 

I don’t think we have an off switch to not look for potential steal opportunities, on or off ball. I know the Memphis game, it was a lot of playing the passing lane/sagging off your man and trying to watch the ball more than your man. Had at least 5 uncontested back door cuts in that game

Some of the good stats project well for Auburn having at least a puncher’s chance against the top end teams left on the schedule and in the NCAA at large. Brandon Miller in a sniper. When Tenn is on, their guards generate a ton of good looks on the perimeter. 

Auburn is a team you have to beat with a 1000 cuts. They’ll be right there in those games for so long, even with 2 of the 3 losses feeling like performances where they shouldn’t have been in the same ballpark. I don’t think it’s possible to just spank this team unless you get the brain dead turnovers en vogue.
