    Osifo played great defense in the second half, they couldn’t hardly score with him inside. This played a big part in our comeback.

    Strong player, good defender. Needs to really work on skills in the off-season.

    Definitely his offense. Find a move that works well for him, just trying to go up and over will get him blocked most times. Also work on his shooting touch.

    Yes and they needed everything out of him today including those 2 free throws but I am hoping Payne returns Sunday and brings the game we know he is capable of. There is no way ORU can handle Castleton and Payne down low.

    Very good on defense, just don't give him the ball on offense unless it's a dunk.

    Free throws are a skill.

    His quick feet and tenacious defense, reminds me of a larger, for filled out Scottie. You don’t have to score to help your team, and this defense gave us numerous stops , turnovers, which helped us grab the lead for good. Think the glue. Our last center took four years to hit a fg.

    Defense is a talent, either you have it, or you don’t. Without his defense in the second half, we probably wouldn’t have won! CMW apparently knows he has it!

    I think a lot of defense is effort. There is clearly some talent involved to be high level defender. But mostly it's just the will to do it.

    He is quick and very strong, as VT’s bigs found out.

    Poor man’s Will Yeguete, I think you see a nice leap next year or 2 with regard to understanding his role and perfecting it.

    Work on a signature move to score and free throw shooting ( bring in Teddy!) . With his quick relentless defense, it will help the team.

    I like Osifo, but the guy has absolutely no ball skills. lol. He needs to put in some serious work in the offseason. On the bright side, he can learn how to dribble with all of the rest of our players. :D

    We should have a dribbling contest in the off-season and let some fans compete with them.

    Hall, I kid you not... I would school some of our players in a dribbling contest right now.
