On the other side of the ball, the top player for Albuquerque was clearly Will Conroy
, also in large part thanks to the excellent shooting display he put on. Conroys shot was looking about as good as weve ever seen, he went 4-6 from beyond the arc to go along with 26 points and 11 assists, as well as 5 turnovers and 6 rebounds, playing all 48 minutes. Hes shooting 37% from beyond the arc on the season, on quite a few attempts, so its probably safe to say that his shot has improved from his time in college, where he was known as a mediocre shooter. He also did a very good job running his team in transition, making some crisp passes, as well as some very nice post-entry looks, but forced the issue a little bit too much in the half-court, which led to quite a few turnovers. This has always been Conroys biggest problem, and is clearly the number one issue holding him back from making an NBA team. Unfortunately hes turning the ball over more than ever this season. If he can just cut down on the 2-3 careless decisions he makes with the ball every game hed be in much better shape. Hes still not the greatest athlete around, relying too much on his strength rather than on pure quickness or explosiveness. All things considered, though, Conroy has to be looked at as one of the better point guards the D-League has to offer.
