RE: Savannah Games
Brian Mull not digging the defensive effort. He pointed out that it's not like UNCW doesn't have talent because they have 2 of the top 10 players in the CAA and 3 of the top 20 players (according to Brian). If they could just defend at all, they would win a lot of games. To me, I'd experiment with some zone at this point. They shot 60% from the floor which is 20% higher than desirable. Teams are shooting over 40% from 3 against the Hawks.

RE: Savannah Games
This was my biggest fear. It's easy to lose the faith of the players and fan support if we are getting blown out. Except for Kalina and the freshmen most of our players have experienced nothing but success at UNCW. McGrath needs to come up with a different plan and quick. As was stated, we have too much talent to get blown out like,this.

RE: Savannah Games
Marcus Bryan played hard tonight and deserves some love. Devonte just didn't have it tonight which is very rare. Fouling out so early was a killer. At least some of the other guys got some minutes tonight. I'd really consider any combination right now, including Etoroma. Getting stops has to be the big thing right about now.

RE: Savannah Games
After looking at their roster, I can see why we had trouble with their transition game. Good grief. They have a ton of guys that are very big guards that are tanks. This was a bad matchup to play a transition game with them...which is what UNCW does. I'd like to see how they do going forward.

I don't know if it would make anything "better", but like others here, I would love to hear about a press and/or zone set or two happening.

RE: Savannah Games
It sounds like help is on the way speaking of defense. Sims sounds like a really good one and the PG is a ball hawker.

RE: Savannah Games
Hawks playing better tonight thus far! Much more activity on the defensive end and the game is tied at 16. They probably won't keep it up against an undefeated and experienced Valpo team, BUT this has been refreshing to listen to.

RE: Savannah Games
Game tied at half with Valpo. Hawks had the lead for most of the half but couldn't score at the end of the half very well. Taylor sat for a long time. Hawks defense was the best that it's been all year.

Davidson about to go down to App State and are getting crushed.
