I think Champ has been generally very good this year, but what happened to his free throw shooting.  He was tops in the league last year and I think he’s right around seventy percent now.  Strange  stuff.

You could tell he wasn’t feeling it towards the end bc be passed up a bunch of open looks.

Smith has really been an enigma.  He came in with a reputation as a good outside shooter.  This far, he’s shot worse than Dunn without Dunn’s redeeming intangibles. It’s not a function of better competition bc Smith has been getting good looks.

Great post on Smith. Can’t figure that one out. 

If Julian shoots like Julian today is this the best we’re gonna play… the loss sucks, the refs sucked and watching Watson abuse us for what feels like 10 years sucks. But is this a positive considering we win if Julian plays like himself w this effort??

or am I crazy?

Its another season w/o an NCAA tourney birth.  And Mike A is on the hot seat once that is official.

But he never had a losing season..

Blah blah blah.

I hope to never hear that again as a reason why Anderson is a great coach

He has 3 or 4 years left on his extension ? Let's be realistic 0% chance he is on the hot seat

1) our half court offense is not good. No flow no rhythm. This is a reflection of coaching. Sets are well below average for high level D! mens basketball.

2) our defense is not fundamentally send.  The constant scrambling does not work any longer at this level given how the game has advanced.  We are constantly out of position. This is a reflection of coaching.

3) Our kids for the most part all lack overall offensive execution skills. Our shooting is below average and our passing is really weak. We do not possess any players that have a high basketball IQ. The is a reflection of coaching.

4) our overall talent level 1-10 players is not high level mens D1 basketball. This is a reflection of coaching.

Until # 4 from  above changes we will struggle as a Big East Program.

I will continue to watch every game and support the program, But the coaching needs to get better.

We need to get better players. Develop them more effectively once we secure them both offensively and defensively and our in game execution needs vast improvement to be handled much better. All goes back to coaching!!!

The results speak for themselves. You are are what your record is.

Wusu finished with 20 today but , he needed to score 40 to offset all the turnovers , bad passes , etc he was committing all game . I know it’s uncharacteristic fur him but , he was annoyingly bad today . CMA letting him play as a PG is a mistake , His handle and passing aren’t up to it . Champ ?  Who knows where he was today . It wasn’t him on the Court today .  Give PC and Cooley credit , they defended him well .   I hope we get the same Home Court calls when we play them again . Problem is , we stink shooting Free throws . PC doesn’t .   This team and CMA need to regroup if the season is to be salvaged .

the heat .   I think making the NCAA this season is unlikely , if not impossible . Barring a GTown run to the BE Title .  Time will tell .
