We are currently last in the OVC in the following categories;
Scoring Defense
Field Goal Percentage Defense
3 Point Percentage Defense
Defensive Rebounding

I guess, at least, the staff should know what to focus on in practice.

That’s what I’ve been saying from day 1. This teams defense is only a rumor. This is without question the worst defensive team I have seen in the 38 years I’ve been watching the Trojans. We have zero inside presence defensively and we can’t cover anybody on the perimeter either, amazing from a coach that was known as a defensive player.

I also expected Darrell's strength as a coach to be defense. And yes you have been pointing this out since day one. Not sure the stats above can be blamed on our nonconference schedule. Sure it was tough, but it wasn't murderer's row or harder than the nonconference schedules of other OVC teams. Obviously, our defense needs to improve significantly if we are to be a factor in the OVC race. Our team is primarily newcomers (Isaiah and Jovan barely play) and maybe defense is the hardest thing to learn. Still, we are about halfway through the season so we should (hopefully) start to see some improvement soon.
