Re: Game 24, 2019-20: George Mason (2/9)

I couldn't watch/listen. Something strange about Kolton's stats: 12 minutes, no points on 0-for-3, 4 steals. 3 fouls? He's just not geting it done as the starting point? Or hurt still/again? He missed a layup or two. He’s not out there to score. One of the fouls was a phantom call. He is steady. He...

Looking at the Mason chatter they are going to double Tre (makes sense) and make our perimeter players beat them. That's a sound strategy for anyone who watched the URI game. It's time for Carl and Sean to break out.
Tre can beat double teams.

Re: Tony Bergeron

We need some swagger. Chaz and Put had Swagger. Not many since have. Some of Dk's last class were a bit too full of swagger for their own good too early.

Re: Tony Bergeron

The feelings people have for him may be real, however the poster there really lost credibility with details for me. The feelings may also be grounded in some truth. But, Basketball coaches have literally nothing to do with the paperwork aspects of college applications. There is no way a coach contro...

Re: KAEO LuWane Pipkins (PG-2015)

Pipkins lead all players in scoring today coming off the bench and Providence had a nice upset at #16 Butler. PC was 11-10 entering yesterday’s ballgame, squarely a mediocre major D1 ballclub. Cooley gets his team prepared to play ON THE ROAD at #16 Butler in a packed Hinkle Fieldhouse. PC plays to...

Re: Game 22, 2019-20: at Davidson (2/1)

I believe he brought in his 3 different press sets...I think the half court principles are the same as the last 2 years. I think this is accurate as well. When the HC consistently says the players can’t guard, he neds to look in the mirror and see he is not instructing them how to guard. Playing de...

Re: Serious Question

I find it hard to believe that McCall doesn't teach/work on fundamentals in practice. I didn't buy it that DK was not teaching/working on fundamentals either. I get that their philosophies might be/have been more "let the players play" during the games, but in my mind that should lead to more time ...

It looks really bad when you can’t keep your freshman recruits (Sy and Woods).
When you recruit guys and then recruit over them and they don’t want to compete that can be a factor. Might be more to it as well.

Re: Serious Question

Perhaps the staff is not chosen for teaching fundamentals, but aspects such as recruiting talent. IMO, the AAU system rewards spectacular athleticism via videos, "top 10', etc., not talent development. And whatever their skill level is in high/prep school, most can simply outrun or outjump the comp...

Re: Serious Question

Context is missing here. Last year Mark Schmidt took a team of mostly freshmen to the conference finals. Other teams confront the same challenges as we do, but haves been much more successful. They beat us, of course. Right, because he prioritizes fundamentals most likely and interchangeable scheme...

Re: Serious Question

In 2+ years I have not seen any evidence that this is being ...
