Yes I agree until we quit "giving the ball a headache" our offense will continue to struggle. How is it the forum members recognize these things, but yet our staff has not or has & are not willing to strategically make adjustments based on our personnel. We have known since summer 2021 that the Princeton O doesn't work w/Rodney no offense to him, but he is better around the basket as opposed to 15ft away from it. Why are we not running sets for Miles & Deebo clearly our best outside shooters.There is a pattern to how our guards dribble drive deep into the lane, pick up their dribble, pivot to put their back to the basket, then shoot a turn around shot. In my opinion, they are clearly being coached to attack the basket using this pattern, but, in my opinion, they don’t connect at a high enough percentage to keep pursuing this strategy. If the guards are going to be encouraged to drive to the basket, they should be coached to finish by attacking the rim and forget about pivoting with their back to the basket. Or better yet, don’t expect to score points by coaching small, unathletic guards to score off dribble penetration. Move the ball and get open shots.
I'm not saying it's ideal, but I think that would put us on the bubble and at least give us a chance.I am wondering when we decided that 7-9 in the ACC is something to hope for on our basketball program??? We had gone down a long way in the past 10-12 years apparently.
We’d have gotten blown out if Smith wasn’t in attack mode all gamePoor showing. Way too much hero ball, especially by our athletic, backup point guard.
When has Howard not been terrible?Terrible night for Kelly, Terry and Howard. At least Maxwell had a good night. If a different offense can help Howard be better I’m all for it. But I’m not sure what offense that is. Kelly just needs to be reigned in. He let previous successes go to his head. The play at the end of the first half should have earned him some bench time. Disgusting. I’m for giving Tristan more of Terry’s minutes.
