Lot going on that half.. came out focused and purposeful. Then.. A LOT of unforced turnovers, press turned into a layup line.. giving up too many offensive rebounds. The usual.

Very curious what adjustments they'll make

Turnovers really let SC back in the game. Probably had 5-6 of them and we went from a 16-8 lead at about the ten minute mark to a 20-19 game at about six minutes left. Then SC scored 19 the rest of the way (jeesh). Haven’t loved the press (that’s mild).

Take care of the ball, limit offensive rebounding and I don’t know maybe switch things up on d. Easier said than done I know, but this is a very winnable game. But shit we can’t give teams ten more shots from the floor in a half and expect to win. We play the way we do those last ten minutes it will be another 15-20 point loss.

For the love of God STOP PRESSING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SC has hit ONE outside shot. Not one 3, one outside shot period. Nothing but layups and dunks due to this ridiculous press. Umass should be winning. The TV guys at the open said SC was not a good outside shooting team and yet we play right into their hands. Is coach blind?? How many layups and dunks does he need to see. He thinks he is going to Press SEC recruits into turnovers? what a joke. Dam Shame because their is talent on this team. We know we suck at defensive rebounding but it is a lot easier to get a body on someone in half court defense than during pressing defense. Everything screams don't press yet he does it constantly SO FRUSTRATING!!

WORST PRESS EVER!!! What the hell are the coaches thinking. I’m totally through with McCall!!! Terrible terrible coaching. I’m giving up until they play defense.

100%.. it's ok to go away from the press... I dont mind it in spurts but if you do it no matter win or lose your and dont recognize when you should back off.. your not a good coach..

The half court defense is probably a major reason for the press. They can’t stop any drives to the basket!

And as usual, to our surprise (somehow we’re still surprised), the adjustment is no adjustment.

SC doesn't shoot well and they are 1-9 from 3.. why wouldn't you get back. Pack it in, and make them shoot over you?? I never played basketball and I can figure that out.

Trying to run the press against one of the best coaches in the country with SEC athletes drives me crazy! This team has so much talent.
