While his results were pretty rough, he was consistently getting open for his shots. I don't know that that had typically been the case in his serious slump period earlier in the season. He would seem to just disappear, or force up bad shots. It's a lot harder to take out a guy who has a good shot that just isn't going, than to take out a guy who has disappeared entirely.

That said, Matt Ryan absolutely could have helped out some more on the court. He seemed to be a lot more comfortable driving in if he was run off the 3 point line. That's a skill-set that should help him substantially. I'm thrilled about where we are as a program, because even as recently as five years ago, Ryan would have been a regular for extended minutes based solely on his shot. Now he's got to do more to see the court. That's real progress.
