Great post I can be critical of coach from time to time, he’s lost some games on the bench ( St. John’s comes to mind) but we didn’t lose yesterday because of Hurley. he had the right plan. And the players played it but failed in one on one defensive execution and shot making at spots. I actually think that was one of hurleys better coached games.This one wasn’t on the coaching to me. They held Nova to under 70. The game plan was to limit their 3 point shooting and they did that. It wasn’t coaching that didn’t box out (Polley), it wasn’t coaching that missed foul shots, it wasn’t coaching when Martin forgot how to shoot 3s. Bouk is legit but when they started collapsing on him, he missed the kick out shooter time after time. The gameplan was a calculated risk and it put them in a position to win, they just didn’t get the second scorer to step up. I’m not putting this one on Hurley. Against a team like that you need the breaks to go your way to win, and we didn’t get any.
