Temperature plays a big part for us. When I looked at other teams, they scored about the same number of runs regardless of temperature. Last night there was a wicked wind too.
I agree pitching dominates the game. Next is fielding and then hitting. We have had a lot of great fielding plays that have taken away what would have been base hits in previous years. So the combination of pitching and fielding has led to:
"Tech has played 18 consecutive games of holding the opposition to five runs or less, extending the longest such streak in the 21 seasons under Hall
In fielding we are 95th ( http://stats.ncaa.org/rankings?sport_code=MBA&division=1
), as with all stats this year, I think we have been a lot better in the last month. Plus this doesn't take into account the great plays.
UVa is #2 in fielding - so they have the pitching and fielding and are the best in the country ...... they won't give us runs when we play them........
