Delaware - Rd. 2 - Away
Hawks' looking to not only win their first road game this season, but looking to not get crushed away from Trask.

The pattern has been similar all year. Good start and get a lead. Opponent comes back to get a lead or make it close at the half. UNCW allows a big run that puts the game out of reach early in the second half and we phone it in for the loss.

I watched the Towson game again and came away really disappointed we yanked our starters down 16 with about 7 minutes left. No, we weren't playing well, but how do your new starters this year learn how to work towards closing at the end of a game if they are on the bench? If we made three baskets or drew some fouls, and got stops, we could have gotten it to a 10 point game or less. It's entirely possible to go on an 8-0 run in just a few minutes. But who knows now?

We are 15 games into this season and are still trying to "figure it out". Here is what I hope to see today.

1. Play our starters for 30+ minutes. That would be Cacok, Talley, Taylor and Fornes. After watching a few games and looking at past success, there is no reason our best players aren't on the court 5-6 minutes more each game. Our Freshmen are still young and inexperienced. Fornes barely played last year and even Cacok didn't see the court much his first year. The size, strength and experience as you get older in college can't be underestimated.

2. Play more zone to stop the drive and keep your players out of foul trouble and on the court for 30+ minutes.

3. Play a 1-2-2 press on made baskets every once in awhile to shake things up. Make opponents uncomfortable in their offense by mixing it up.

I simply can't see this team changing our outcomes if we don't change something up more than we have. The introduction of the zone has helped, but it's not enough to turn this around.

Cacok sits after picking up his 2nd foul at 10:30 and Kalina comes in. Talley, Fornes and Cacok on the bench, Hawks up 21-19 at the 9:47 mark.

Subbed too early. We get a flow going and then he subs. That has to stop if we are going to win any games.
