From an article about the Holy Cross game. It's called "coaching".
Verdi recognized early that his team was struggling to defend the Crusaders in man to man and switched to a zone defense late in the second quarter. Holy Cross was 9-of-17 in the first quarter and dropped to a whopping 4-of-14 once it was hit with the zone. Simple, yet smart game time adjustments are necessary anytime but in close games like Friday’s, recognizing what works and what doesn’t make the difference.

If I remember correctly, the WBB coaching search was conducted by an associate AD and not RB. She is no longer with UMASS.

Did anyone know that Tory was this ill? Also, were the women's games postponed because we were on Covid protocol? I saw that on a tweet earlier today.

Good stuff. Glad to see the women's program in such good hands after how bad it was for so long.
