How to dominate a game only scoring 9 points

You look at Michael Flowers boxscore from last nights 57-42 victory against Michigan State and nothing jumps out at you.  He only had 9 points, 3 boards, 3 assists and only shot 3-10 from the floor.  However look at the Michigan State boxscore.  It was Flowers' job to shut down the preseason Big Ten Player of the Year Drew Neitzel and shut him down he did.  He held him to 1-10 from the floor for 3 points.  Neitzel didn't get those 3 until there was 9:51 left in the game.  People will talk about Butch's 4 threes but this game came down to Flowers eliminating Neitzel by relentlessly running through screens and staying in his grill all game long.
