This is the Kyisean Reed coaches have wanted to see.
The Reed that flies around and plays above the rim. The Reed that's capable of pulling in tough rebounds in traffic. The Reed who finishes plays on the interior.
Reed, a junior forward, powered the Aggies on Wednesday night, scoring 16 points and adding eight rebounds in a 75-69 win over Cal-State Bakersfield in the CIT Tournament first round.
Reed was tough against difficult competition, emerging from the game with a bloody lip and a gash on his right shoulder. He brushed it off, saying that it was alright and that it wasn't a painful injury. But Reed stood tall against a lot of pressure on Wednesday night.
"It was just a few scratches," Reed said.
With Utah State, playing and winning in the postseason gives the opportunity to keep playing, and keep developing people like Reed.
The question is whether Reed can be consistent. We will find out more on Saturday night.
