RE: Kent State @ Xavier
Obviously this is a tough game to try to dissect considering the opponent. Without getting carried away:

The good - Pippen got after it offensively and both Avery & Zabo had 5 assists against 1 turnover.

The bad - Xavier dominated in the paint and on the glass. It was to be expected but it looked like men against boys for most of the game.

The lesson - ADR needs to step up his effort on the defensive end. 5 fouls in 19 minutes ain't gonna cut it.

It would be difficult to find a team that could have beaten Xavier last night. They may wind up as a final four.

Harder to do without your leading scorer.

RE: Kent State @ Xavier
We have 2 glaring flaws right now:

1) Walker is our only consistent outside 3 pt shooter, so with him out makes it even harder. The other guards have their moments from outside but the 3 I'm thinking of have some kinks in their shooting stroke.

2) Team defense is poor. We have our moments but takes 5 guys working together and then hitting the boards. unfortunately that's not working in synergy quit yet.

Why does it seem like we're always such a poor shooting team? Year in and year out we are among some of the worst shooting teams. I don't know if its Rob's philosophy and his reputation as a post-player coach but the MAC has long been a guard's league. It would just be nice to have a guy or two who shot above 40% from three point range.

Scorers, or shooters .... that's an age-old question. I would guess, by the time conference play starts, there won't be 10 players in the MAC shooter over 40-percent on 3-pointers ... and certainly by the end of January.

(went back and checked 2016-2017 stats ... only 8 players 40-percent or better at the end of last season -- WMU, BSU, OU had six of the 8).

Think of it this way ... down six with 3:30 to play in the game, do you want a 38-percent 3point shooter taking a shot that could keep you in or knock you out of a game ... or a 50-percent mid-range shooter taking the shot. Walker is both. Do you want to be down four when the other team gets the ball, or still down six and the clock ticking?

Don't know Senderoff's philosophy, either. But the above scenario is one I have heard a lot of coaches debate about.

Thoughts???

Dev Manley, I loved that guy. We need him on this team. He made our teams good with others getting the credit.
