Losing Battle and Cooper feels more and more like losing Gabe and Carr. A lot of fans on here couldn’t wait to see them go and all they’ve done is star for programs that were in the NCAA tournament the last 2 years, while we continue to get worse and worse.
Wouldn’t be surprised to see both end up with solid programs next year.
There is no contest between Battle and Carr. Carr is just a far better player. Both hogged the ball.
Stat lines for their final Gopher year
19pts/4rebs/5assists/1.3 steals/38%FG shooting/80%FT/31.7% 3 pt shooting
Carr scored 1.24 pts per shot - got himself to the FT line
12pts/ 4rebs/1.7assists/.6steals/37%FG shooting/78%FT/31.1% 3 point shooting
Battle scored just under 1 point per shot- rarely got to the line
Both were minus defenders for their positions.
Gabe- while his stats were not great on offense -was a really good defender- which obviously Cooper, other than shot blocking, was not.
