Let’s not ignore the big elephant in the room. The coaches. Team down very quickly first quarter. Comes back in second half only because CBU went nuts for 4 minutes with 9 in a row. 2.1 seconds to go and you don’t have a safe inbound play? Do you still have a time out? 0.6s and this kid has plenty of time to get open and make a shot 35 feet away?? Complete confusion on D and bad switches. What were they told to do?
Questionable substitutions again and should I remember everyone that we, once again, had a size advantage that we neglected to use? Stop tweeting, texting, posting about the career highs (especially when you lost 10 in a row). Publish the PER instead and take responsibility for the results.
The end of the game was frustrating and the team still takes too many bad shots but I was encouraged by the performance against Navy. Down 18 and they come back to get a 5-point Lead! You can start to see what this team could be as these freshmen mature and improve.HH could be a special player at both ends of the floor.
Questions remain: No ME and one minute for KB, why?
Caught the replay of the buzzer-beater – as everyone who watches ESPN did. D on that play didn’t look bad; shot was challenged by a big, and very nearly blocked. I don’t think the shooter makes that very often.
Best you can do is force a difficult shot.
