It's hard to implement our press without Heron and LJ. Both of them are two of the quickest guys on the team laterally. If coaching were so simple we'd all be making seven figures doing it. Sometimes we just don't have the players, it's not the staffs fault Keita had zero boards. Our half court offense is abysmal. If we're not forcing TO's and getting fast break points we simply can not control the tempo or apply a successful press, especially without 2 of our "positionless" guys mentioned earlier.

This season is a totally missed opportunity. We had a couple of good crowds at the Garden because of OUR team. Not because Duke or whomever was there. So what happens? Team looks dull, lifeless and out of its league against two very beatable opponents. That is why this stings even more.

Please no more excuses about missing players. This is about poor, inexcusable effort by everyone involved and I sure can't explain it.

Not Karl Malone, but worth investing in. At very least it will keep him interested getting some minutes. One game, but imo his upside seems solid. I think Keita comments above just about covered his deficits.


And if next game Roberts gets more minutes and plays terrible the comments on this board will be something along the lines of: "Roberts is just a terrible player", "Roberts definitely not a BE caliber player", "Where is Keita, he at least gives us some offense"

Precious would be a dope to come play for this staff.

Outside of ponds, some serious regression going on.

Ill prepared. Ill motivated.
In another post, I mentioned that Mullin needs to go Bobby Knight on this team. Open up the gym at 2 am tomorrow morning. Run them to death. If they don’t want to expend effort during the game, maybe they will at practice.
And while we’re at it, the AD can gather Mullin and the staff in an office and explain how this lack of effort will not be tolerated!


Under no circumstance should the AD EVER intervene with the coach in regards to effort, coaching strategy, etc.....

. Agree! Time enough after season to evaluate this year’s results .

There's more than one type of press you can toss out. You can go full-court or half-court. You can even throw out light pressure. Regardless, we should've been pressuring the basketball to speed up Providence. You could basically see the entire first half the Friars were having issues with our team speed.

Providence was clearly dictating tempo, and we should've attempted to make an adjustment to the Friars taking the air out of the ball and running their offense. They were getting quite comfortable running their stuff for a good portion of the second half. That can't be allowed.

Jack called it...huge letdown after looking like we turned corner again. This is why we need to stop talking about making runs...we can’t. We fight for our lives just to get to .500 and can’t stay there. Heron thing is shady and bruises aren’t reason not to play. Clark has been awful and the refs hate Mullin so we never get home cooking. Maddening team to watch.

I am more disappointed with this game then the DePaul game. In fact I am outright ticked off. When my son got a tweet that Heron wasn’t playing I had a bad feeling but I was “hoping” we could step it up at the Garden in front of a big red crowd. I can’t even sort out what went wrong because at this moment it all seems bad. It is extremely difficult being a fan of this team. The inconsistency is maddening and that is the sign of a mediocre team with player and coaching deficiencies. I don’t expect Heron to play against Butler so unless the good St. John’s shows up this could be a season ending homestand.

Sadly , the Team had NO Urgency all game .. There is no Team Leader on the Court . Providence did what every one does and overplayed Ponds . A perfect opportunity for Simon to shine again like Tuesday and Clark to emerge from his 2 week funk . Neither showed up , scoring 10 points collectively and Simon reverting to his Pre Marquette doldrums . Missing that monstrous Dunk by Justin in the first half started the down slide . We never recovered any intensity after that .
