Which team has more players that can beat a defender off the dribble?
Which team has fewer good in ball defenders on the perimeter?
Answer those questions accurately and you would agree EJ and Dickinson swap would have made SCum win by more. EJ is more multi-dimensional than Dickinson is.
Dickinson would make OSU’s weak D even worse because they already struggle vs athletic teams that can drive and shoot. Dickinson being forced to defend high ball screens with OSU’s weak on ball defense makes the situation worse. Dickinson is not Oden as a rim protector. Have to be at that level to compensate for what else he gives up versus an EJ type player.
Put EJ with Livers, Wagner, and the rest of their guards and you have players at every position that can play O and D inside and out, all 5 players can shoot the 3, and can attack at every position.
Nova won a few NC’s without traditional big. UNLV won NC without traditional big.
