horrible play so far.....they haven't let us get the ball in the paint at all. we're leaving their shooters wide open. 3 pointers might not be their strengt.....but we can't give them so many wide open looks.

Paul Hewitt thinks that "dribble penetration" has something to do with a leaking condom.

I've watched his PGs do the same thing for years. Run down the floor, stop at the three point line and either make an ill advised entry pass, or pass the ball around the perimeter until time runs down and someone takes a bad shot.

Favors and Lawal are wasted on this team.

I long for the days of Mark Price style play, where the PG drives into the lane and is either fouled (and hits his shots) or passes to the open man. Hewitt has no idea how to coach offense.

msm5
12-20-2009, 06:20 PM
To me, the two problems are that 1) we constantly double/help the man in the post even when we are in good position, which leaves open three point shots and 2) on offense, we always seem to have two people in the same area, which makes it appear that we are not running any plays, but instead letting the players freestyle.

Yeah it's odd...student attendance looks terrible, but the general admission people actually showed up pretty well. I mean, there's some empty seats in the upper level but by and large the seats are filled. I agree with you on the crowd noise though...practically non-existent.

People seem surprised. This first half is a microcosm of the last half-decade of Yellow Jacket hoops. A couple years ago we had THREE draft pics and failed to win a single game in the tournament (and hardly got in as a bubble team seeded 10th). What's surprising about this? This is par for the course of the CPH tenure.

However, if we're LOSING to Central Southwest Florida(which has come close to happening too many times this season...) that tells you a lot and of course people are going to talk about it.

our defense actually looks better (the usual half dozen transition lapses notwithstanding), and Leonard Hamilton is one of the best defensive coaches in the country so you have to take this putrid game with a grain of salt, but how in the hell do you justify taking such a high percentage of threes? no ball movement, no off-ball movement, and ill-advised shots. Yep, this team is bubble-bound if they cannot execute better and quickly.

Agree 100% with you... good post. That said, I'm VERY concerned with the pattern of our teams having the deer in the headlights look against a zone. It's one thing to have an off night shooting.

If FSU doesn't shoot free throws at the end like we normally do, this game is not that close. It's just sad to watch the players stand around. Also, if FSU could shoot remotely well from 3, we probably lose by 15. We collapse/help on D even when the main defender is in great position. Does Hewitt not trust our players to defend one-on-one?

A lot of what we saw tonight was a direct result of the weak schedule this team has played this year. It is easy to feel good about yourself when you win against competition that you should dominate. I thought the idea behind early season scheduling was to prepare for conference play.

FSU was a terrible offensive team that did enough to win because they were able to shut our inside game down. That can't be acceptable to anyone. Hopefully the guys can gain more confidence against the next 2 cream puffs on the schedule.
