Doc, you forgot to mention the rebounding.

Since they suck at everything it is simply amazing that they managed to win six league games and are tied with a top 40 RPI team.

That's what happens when you play little to no D and have a carpet bombing offense-sometimes the bombs hit there targets and sometimes they don't. My friend's son goes to Fordham and informed me that in their last two wins they have given up a total of 85 points which he said is like a half for ST J's. Went to the Fordham home game vs Dayton and was impressed by their intense defense (I realize we blitzed them this season-kudos to Mo and his offense). Point is if we could be more demanding on playing more intense D perhaps we can win more games even if we are a bit off offensively.

Point is their still learning and have played some good defensive games against good BE teams and a few lousy all around games. It is year one for this core group. They are going to implode on the road from time to time. They will never be a scrappy defensive team keeping scores in the fifties and winning games shooting 38% from the field. They hopefully will become consistent and improve from shooting in the 44% range to the 48 to 50% range and become a consistent winner at the BE level.

Muscini cannot play defense. He gives up as many as he makes. He could never play for me. Just one man's opinion though.

You've got to play...and know how to play...GOOD DEFENSE, to be a consistent winner in the Big East. If you're under-pinings are poor to begin with, you won't win.

You're right, there is no way a Lou team could ever have given up 110.

113, however........
