A Look at Emmanuel:
Emmanuel is an extremely fast, talented, and quick team. Scoring in transition is the Saints' main offense, as they will push the ball hard and look to score quickly. In the half-court, Emmanuel will look to score just off the first or second pass, and their first priority is getting to the rim. If their quick-hit sets don't work, they will look to go 1-on-1 late in the shot clock.

Defensively Emmanuel will use their quickness to disrupt the opposing offense. Look for Emmanuel to implement a full-court press as well as a mixture of defenses against MIT's height.
