To much up the middle | The Boneyard
  • If you are seeing a McAfee pop up about malware, switch to the AO style.

    To do so, go to the bottom left of any screen, click the style currently selected (boneyard or dark), then click AO. If you still have the problem after switching, send me a screen capture.

    If you are not a registered user, you may have to switch style each time you visit until the issue is resolved, or register a free account. Edit: I'm told this Chrome Extention in helps to prevent pop ups:

We ran the same play too many x
I’m very surprised at the lack of diversity with so much talent on the roster. Adama can’t be the only play and they need to run in and out 3s.

No bs about refs— we lost this one on ourselves. But we can learn from it.

Some of Edsalls offensive philosophy rubbed off on Danny?

This is too much smash mouth
Jim Calhoun was tough too but he let them play.
We have great players— hoping that our in out balance is better

Our runs were made with transition and making jump shots the last 2 days . Sanogo is really good but he’s only going to shoot it we need everyone involved. Hurley only went to the well predictably coming out of TOs ...... just not good for the team.

Adama is a good player but having him as the only hero and allowing him to think so will be poison to this team. Izzo knew exactly what DH was going to do at the end and there was no adjustments made. If Adama doesn't learn to find the open players when he is double a tripled team, things are going to get ugly quick against the NBE teams

The next evolution in Sanogo's development is to learn how to pass out of double teams. He shouldn't get the ball 10-12 feet from the basket and try to get to the basket or put up an 8 foot hook shot against a double team. Those are low percentage shots. Every team is going to double team going forward after seeing what we all saw.

Adama is getting full rein on over 20 possessions a game with the amount of shots to the rim he is taking. He never looks to pass. If we took 6 of his shots and let our shooters chuck 3's we would be better off. He misses too many close shots and no one is in position to rebound. The whole rest of the team stagnates watching him. I can not see this being the way we play all season.

I’d like to see us solidify the big 4
Hawkins Cole Adama and martin
Everyone else has their role. For us to be great— shot distribution has to be much more even. Of course any of our other guys can step up and play big but these guys are the main stays.

It’s not gonna work throwing it into the post 20 x without it coming out. It’s why we started slow in almost every game and against better comp it’s why we failed end of game.

Agree this is a problem. When the ball goes into Sonogo, the rest of the team stays on the perimeter so as not to bring their defensive player into the lane. When Adama misses, the team has no chance for the rebound.
