    Combination Defense

    When I was coaching in some games where we had to contend with certain players going off we played part zone and part m-m. Play a one man or two man zone and play the others m-m. Take away the outside shot from Daly etc.and stop the drive to the rim rim with your zone men. Just a thought that...

    Gaffney: The old coach in me says that this kid can play.

    Have the same feeling for JG that I had for Whaley and Adams. The old coach in me says that this kid can play. Hurley on Coaches Show said he is 85 to 90 % right now because of recovery from a bad sprained ankle. I look for him to start contributing vs St Joes and continue on an upward trend...

    Isaiah Whaley Appreciation Thread

    Without him today we would have been out of the tournament. Phil Nolan would have been proud of IW performance. We are a solid team when he is on the floor. He gives us a big lift with his defense and rebounding. He is the perfect contributor when JC has to be spelled for foul trouble. Great...

    Pick and Roll

    Its simple if the pick and roll were executed correctly it can't be defensed in M-M. We pick a lot with the big going out to the perimiter. Most good teams play MM against us a lot.The pick man (big)after the switch has his teammates man on his back and should roll to the basket with his...

    Spot Light @ XL

    When introducing the starting lineup why isn't there a spotlight put on each UCONN player as they are introduced? The whole place is dark from the scoreboard video and you can't see the players as they are introduced. Score board operator errors must stop. Clean things up so our guys have a...

    Sabotage at UConn...

    This is my attempt to get around the coaches gatekeepers. I am an angry frustrated UConn men's basketball follower. Being a thirty-five year season ticket holder and loyal to the core I didn't deserve the humiliation at Louisville of the worse defeat in the history of UConn men's basketball. Joe...

    Can UConn overcome the loss of Walker?

    It could be Shbaz or Jeremy at his time. Someone else like Andre may emerge. The team will have to take time to see who will be reliable. It will be fun to see what happens. New to Boneyard and just wanted to say hello-you won't find a bigger UConn fan.
