Delaware just could not miss from wherever they shot the ball. Offensively UNCW had some really bad trips with quick bad shots by Fornes,Cylla and that is what put Fornes on the bench. Cylla had his worst game of the year on both ends and should see his time go down.

but but but but, ZONE is the answer03-banghead



It WAS and IS the answer for UNCW, period. We suck defending man to man, we've proven that. I watched the entire game, if we played zone it was for two possesions at the most. Furthermore, statistics(aka facts) show that Delaware is least efficient in scoring against the zone. If they hit a two threes against the zone, it means they hit at least 13 against m-m. They rely on the drive and kickout for spot up, open threes and they need a m-m defense to get those drives that collapse our defenders.

We got all hyped because we beat JMU in double OT and beat a really crappy Towson team. All it took to deflate that bubble was a decent team with a decent game plan and boom, our defense disappeared.

Cacok is gone this year, we'd better get it while we can.

I have a hunch that a loss to Drexel at home might be the proverbial nail in the coffin. It seems from the outside looking in that both Coaching Staff and player's confidence looks fragile at this point and time. It is important as a HC to hold everything together for your team after a loss like Delaware. Someone to be the calm in the storm even in the face of adversity. That is leadership. Perhaps a good move last game would have been to accept complete blame for the loss even if it was not true to take the pressure off the players instead of throwing them under the bus.

Of course a win will turn everything on it's head again but that is the world of competitive sport. Winning cures everything. It seems slightly silly at this juncture to start focussing on Stats/Analysis because the answers to the problems seem obvious to most people on this Board. Still cheering. Go Hawks!

If McGrath didn’t lose the team at this point last year where we were in even worse shape, then I don’t think he will lose the team this year. As you said winning cures everything. Win and we are sitting at 3-2. Not bad. Two of those being on the road.
