If 3 guys are falling back and 2 are at least attempting to act like they are going for a board it's not going to be that easy to get a fast break. Just my personal opinion


Long shots lead to long rebounds. While this can also lead to runouts, you don't really even need to crash the boards to get some offensive rebounds. 3 back should be enough to stop obvious fast break advantages. When someone drives and help defense rotates over to challenge the shot, you have to make the defense pay for that rotation. the easiest way is to have someone on the weak side ready for a putback opportunity.


Weatherman really knows the game. Always enjoy our pre game & half time chats. Your and SJU15’s commentaries are always appreciated.

The new concept following along the lines of positionless basketball is reboundingless basketball.


Being outrebounded by 12 or 10 every game means even if the other team scores on half of those rebounds we give up 10 points per game. Bad outside shots and no inside game strategy also costs us 4 points per game. That's why this team with a better staff would be undefeated instead of still learning. Greg St. Jean is the most overrated assistant coach in college basketball. John Kresse he is not. We all love Mullin but he can't do it alone like other coaches and begs the question "who is Chris Mullin learning from". You will never have a complete college team playing NBA basketball because even Kentucky with five 5 star players can't do that. You need to coach up college players and not just let them run up and down shooting long balls.


Nice to see that you’ve recognized the great job done on the recruiting front.


We have the best starting 5 in the conference. We don't have the best team. When you only play one sub that says very little about recruiting and more about coaching.

We did a very good job with the rotation against Georgetown and a very bad job against nova. Still, let’s not freak out about it yet. Hopefully they get back on track today and keep on track for the rest of the season
