. Yes, I did and was disbelieving .. I mean it’s so obvious our guys won’t even challenge for a offensive rebound on the outside jumpers which produce a fair amount of put back opportunities . Didn’t make sense to me , why a Coach would tell his team to not hit the glass .


Avoid transition layups by Nova?


I believe Mullin indicated it at that time. No transition baskets. He’s certainly not pushing the offensive boards and wants evenryvosy back defending. It certainly has helped prevent runs for the most part. Gotta stick our shots though and most games we seem to be doing well this way. Could still be undefeated at this point nearly.

Does anyone know why Williams played zero minutes against Nova and for that matter why Roberts did not play in the second half?

According to coach the answer was game situations did not warrant it.

Interesting, if in fact the starters were tired seems like their playing would be warranted.

Mullin's post game comments almost always amount to no information. This is his prerogative but one would love to know specifically why Williams did not play vs Vill. His minutes have been increasing , his contribution seems fine and yet Mullin takes the chance SJU will have little energy in the last five minutes and suffer a tough loss which is not the first time this has happened.
What was it about Vill that made Mullin feel he should keep Williams on the bench? Anything of a disciplinary action or just a bad matchup?

Yes but you don't need all five back.

Transition layups?
Doesn't that approach presume your 5 out players are going to miss that 3 point shot and assume the other team will grab the defensive rebound because your team doesn't look for an offensive rebound unless you drive to the basket?
Then again we miss so many bunnies that I wouldn't be surprised if our offensive rebounds are the result of those missed drives or lucky long bounces that only Shamorie seems anticipate.
There I go rambling again. On to DePaul and playing 8 guys. The Wonder Five experiment failed against Nova.

Would love to have seen Williams get a shot at Booth. He certainly could have been no worse than anyone else.

I hated CMs instruction to shoot and get back on defense. No wonder we get no offensive rebounds. What ever happened to follow your shot?
