Why doesn't the basketball team warm up? Root of the problem?
We usually start out flat, cannot argue with that.

One thing I have noticed in just about every game is the other team takes the entire pregame period warming up and finding their shooting rhythm. Last night before the game, and my son and I were there an hour before tip off, MTSU came out shooting brick after brick and even missing dunks and steadily improved until they were loose and hitting everything before tip off. ODU was in the locker room almost the entire time and only came out about 5 minutes before the national anthem and ran a couple of useless drills.

I don't know if there is anything to this theory, but would we be better off out there finding our shots and loosening up than in the locker room? Could this partially explain our notoriously slow starts and overall poor outside shooting?

I dont know the answer to your question but my guess is they warm up in the practice facility since it is right behind the Ted.

Did you get up at all in that hour? Because they definitely were out there twice to warm up and it's certainly much longer than 5 minutes.

Maybe, but IMO that would be dumb not to orient themselves with the rims and the site lines and the crowd noise in the arena where the game itself is being played.

They were warming up at the beginning of the hour, left for about 40 minutes (rendering that first warmup useless) and came back and warmed up for about 5 minutes before the anthem.

So, you exaggerated in the first post saying they only warmed up for five minutes? A bit misleading, no?

We can parse semantics, but the warm up was effectively 5 minutes given the 40 minute cool down period after the first and MTSU was out there the whole time. The question stands. Is this something worth looking at and is it affecting how we are starting games and our overall shooting?

So what is the optimal down time when the first warmup is not deemed useless?

You all are being ridiculous. So nobody wants to discuss or refute the theory, got it. At least the premise doesn't seem to be in question. Maybe I should ask: what can we do to to improve the way we start games and shoot better?

It's difficult to refute (or discuss) a theory that is just some off the wall type topic that has zero evidence of credibility. You are coming in thinking there is some amount of time the team should warmup (with no answer to what that is). Then you are claiming if you warm up early, it gets lost if you wait a certain amount of time (with no answer to what that is).
