That’s what Barnes believed for 30 years of coaching. Then he started listening to the analytics nerds and their “all midrange shots are bad” nonsenseI still believe in defense first, then an inside to outside basketball offense. That's the winning formula to a National Championship.
Yeah, hard to find anything good to say about that one. Biggest concern to me is the post play. I had huge hopes for ORN, and I'm starting to wonder. Still think it'll be a very good team, but if post play doesn't improve, they'll struggle at times.
You’re more likely to have one of those days when you’re taking bad shots like we were taking. A couple of perimeter passes and a shot is not good offense and, unless one of those passes is a skip pass that leads to an open 3 in rhythm, you’re taking a bad shot.There are days when the ball doesn't go in the hole, hitch in the shooting mechanics, etc... However, there is NO excuse for that lack of defensive effort.
Kudos to Colo, they found what was working and exploited it.

I guess that showing went to their heads. May take a while to get back on track. I think they need to substitute less and let them learn to play together again. Anyone have an updated on the injury?Counting the Gonzaga expedition we've now shot awful in 5/6 halves played
Not like we've not seen that before....and usually in some of our most important games. Live by the 3, die by the 3. We need to upgrade the front court in a big way. Until then, if we're to have any real success this season, we can't take nights off defensively. Just not good enough to do that as today shows.We have shooters. Just had a cold game.
LOL, actually, I would not be surprised to see us beat them like we always do at least once in the regular season, probably in Knoxville. But I am going to have to adjust downward my now somewhat low expectations for this team. We have almost no real offensive presence on the inside and our guards are very limited, now that they don't have someone like a Kennedy Chandler to lean on.Kentucky will run us out of the gym in both games.
totaly agree...he better get an inside game or we will lose alot
why wouldnt you put others in the game...it was awfulBetter question is how do you get outscored 40 (or so) to 10 from inside.
