Rendleman is averaging almost a double-double, 16.3 points and 9.7 rebounds, while Williams averages 6.7 points and 8.0 boards.
"They're such an inside-oriented team," Herrion said. "They want to get those two guys, especially Rendleman, touches in the post. They can be deliberate at times and very patient in terms of making sure that happens. Sometimes they labor to score."
Goff wants to make that labor even tougher for the Seahawks, but he is confident in his fellow "bigs" if he can't go. Nigel Spikes has 20 points and 23 rebounds in the last two games, and JP Kambola has a basket, three rebounds and two blocks in 13 minutes in that span. Kambola had played just 19 career minutes prior to the Goff/Mbao injury.
"I'm proud of my guys. They went in there and they fought every night," Goff said. "Scoop [Spikes] gave us valuable minutes every night, and he came through for the bigs. And JP, he stepped in when he was called. It's not often you get that with a sophomore who hasn't played very much, so that's good for him."
