They haven't defended half court in a long time, even with Keatts, but got away with it with the press like '82 was saying. We all just want to see improvement right now. If they can get some stops, they actually rebound pretty well as a team.

My issue with Keatts’ was that he didn’t teach how to defend without fouling, if at all. We had common results where our foul count would be upper 20s to 30s, and too many of them would be on guards that occurred 30 feet from the basket. I thought we were seeing improvement this year, especially with Tae, but now he’s gotten in trouble the last two games and if we’re giving up 90+ a night maybe we aren’t fouling enough.

this is a great point ML. Keatts seemed to not care about foul count nor did he adjust his approach when the refs were calling a tight game. See our last game at ECU where the refs called fouls on everything we did.

So I guess we should all bet on the over in our matchups this season?

I see what the numbers say there, but in the ECU game Zone worked, man didn't at all. But yet coach decided to switch from zone after we got the lead and it was quickly relinquished.

Watching the suffocating pressure of WVU dominating Pitt and Pitt folding under that pressure sure make me miss what we had.

I asked a question about the zone to our good friends at the beat and the beard podcast. Their response seemed to be that CB wants to run a man to man defense, and that he wants to "bite the bullet" and keep running it, even if the zone would work better for now - as it did in the ecu game when we played it.


Makes no sense to me. But what do I know?

If he can improve the M2M then yeah, I get it. If it doesn't improve, and translate to wins... then it doesn't make sense to me either.

But... we are relegated to the luxury of watching it all play out.

RE: Defense
The question is why? Why man to man instead of zone? What's the purpose or reasoning behind "biting the bullet"'? What is the intended benefit that is greater than playing zone? To just say "we're playing man....because we're playing man" is foolish.

There are plenty of great teams that play zone or at least play some zone to help the team WIN. Isn't that the goal? To win? If not, what is the goal?

RE: Defense
Agree with all you guys! Good coaches adjust. I LOVE to play a half court trap with the boys i coach, but some years i just don't have the personnel to pull it off effectively so i don't run it! Same applies here with Zone- Man with Coach. You have to use what works with YOUR team and if it doesn't, adjust!
