Blalock turned in the most impressive performance of the morning. He completely dominated his matchup with Daniel Horton
on both ends of the floor, getting into the lane at will on the offensive end and giving Horton nothing easy defensively. Horton is known for being strong and athletic, but Blalock clearly had another gear today. Blalock impressed as a floor general today, and showed none of that tendency to overdribble that we have seen in the past. He threaded the needle on several passes into traffic, and generally did a good job of keeping the offense flowing. Despite looking to create offense with his passing at times, he managed to play relatively mistake free. The play of the game came midway through the first half when he split a double team and exploded to the basket for an emphatic dunk. He also hit a couple of contested midrange jumpers, but his outside shot remains a weakness. The last notable Blalock moment in this game was a badly airballed 3-pointer. Nonetheless, Will Blalock
s excellent play set the tone for his teams easy victory, and he clearly went a long way towards proving that he can play point guard.
