RE: Latest Episode of "The Beat and the Beard" UNCW sports podcast
Enjoyed the last episode. One topic that was interesting was Keatts philosophy on defending the three. It was true, and I heard him say many times that his teams focused on defending the three. Although we all thought our man to man was not good, we tend to forget that we defended the three really well, which makes it easier for teams to drive to the bucket. Based on how bad our three point defense is now, it isn't a bad philosophy

Yeah, but remember how much we fouled? That was a result of those guys going inside and getting past our guards. There were times where the only reason teams were in the game was because they were getting so many shots at the FT line. I remember teams being in the double bonus with like 10 min left in a half. While, yes, we defended the three well... but that gets equaled out if you're giving more than the avg charity tosses.

True, but we won games. And FT's only allow a team to score at most two, not three points on an offensive trip. He was willing to trade off the fouls and drives for two to stop the three. As we are witnessing right now, being one of the worst in the nation defending the three leads to a really bad record.

We also lost some games because of it that we should have won. I'm not saying we weren't really good. We were. It was great. But we were NOT a good defensive team, at all. We played a good press and caused a lot of turnovers and had a high powered offense. However, we were not a good holistic defensive team.

Depends on your definition of "good defense". You can't stop or do everything, you have to pick our priorities. When you press, you risk a fast break. When you sell out stopping the three, you risk players driving around you and drawing fouls. BUT, when you press, you get TO's and fast breaks. When you stop the three, you limit scoring potential for other teams.

Fair. Can't take EVERYTHING away from your opponent. And running a 4-guard lineup a lot of the time, easy layups were always going to be a possibility for teams we faced.

CG is right. We were that great defensively and we fouled a lot. But offense was a machine

And we usually won the turnover battle

But if the opponent got set they generally got a good shot off or were fouled

What has been the difference defensively the last two games? Clearly they are doing something better, but what is it?
