McCall has definitely made a lot of adjustments already. Just this season he's made several lineup changes, and several changes to the defense.

I’m looking for adjustments that show prolonged growth...maybe avoid the layup line defense as well. and maybe a better feel for a subbing pattern.

After setting a record 52 points vs UMass last Saturday in the first half. Davidson has scored a season low 20 in the opening half at VCU! Go figure . .

I was there. They shot 73% from the 3 point line. We could not stop them.

There’s a difference between correct adjustments and adjustments out of desperation. Where would you rank his adjustments at the moment?

Not sure how to rank such a thing, but overall I think he's done relatively well with his adjustments, and I can appreciate his willingness to adjust, even if every adjustment doesn't end up working.

Davidson is having a strange year. Last night they made 18 threes. Yes, 18 and beat Fordham by 30.

when they get up big early, with no hint of scoreboard pressure, they hit those 3s consistently.
