Yes!! This x1,000. I feel the same way. (saying that, it hasn't stopped me.) 04-cheers

Yeah I got a lot of stares but hey, I’m used to my voice being drowned out

Good win. Hopefully we can get the sweep tomorrow, seemed like there a lot of splits in the games last weekend.

They always say any opponent is tough to sweep. I just wonder how coaches are going to make significant adjustments and get the players reframed in less than 24 hrs. Of course, they have all week, but if someone killed you with something the night before (pressure, zone, screens, etc.)... And the opposing coach knows it worked, too.

I think it will be a mindset very similar to conference tournament play. The one big factor is you’re not playing a different opponent, you’re playing the same opponent.

i am more worried about depth than adjustments. i think a lot of our losses will be the second game due to lack of depth

What was the deal with the refs making 2 of our guys take off their tight undershirts that they wore under their regular jerseys before they could enter the game?? USM had several guys with generic type undershirts under their jerseys and that seemed to not be a problem with the refs. Weird .

Just watching the feed I thought I saw printing or logos on them. Maybe it could be seen thru our white unis

I think it was clearly a concerted effort to shoot threes. We came out firing from the first possession, and I think we had three attempts in our first two trips down the floor. Andy never mentioned it on the radio show after the game, but I think it was part of the game plan, and that, part of a larger strategy for the season.

He has said a few times that we are going to struggle against good teams if we can't shoot the three better than we have. And he knows that if we aren't shooting any better than we have been from outside, and if everyone just drives to the hoop every possession without kicking it out, we're going to face nothing but packed-in zones. So I think he was thinking long term, trying to grow some shooters, and build some confidence. And as a shooter himself, he knows how importance that confidence from the bench for you to shoot helps.

So Scott-Grayson, Ertel and Benjamin in particular seemed to have the green light all night. Even Gordon had a 3 point attempt (and he got a real shooter's bounce and it went in).

And, when they went to the zone it didn't hurt either, though some of our possessions we seemed lost until Benjamin eventually fired up a 28 footer.

Yeah. I was at the game also and two of our guys were told to take off their Tee shirts. One had a white T and the other, a black T.

I wasn't listening to TuneIn radio, so I was hoping that David Crane would mention why and someone would post the answer here.

I will say, it seemed Jalen had the greenest light of them all. Love the way the guy plays but some of those first couple of threes were very premature and sporadic

Clothing that makes a player stand out a distance is not legal.(not sure the exact college rule)

An example say as team has 4 or 5 players that are all around 6' 5" but one is an inside stud who is a driving/dunking machine. Being able to spot him from early back court is an advantage

Scott-Grayson nailed his first 3, and on a wide open second attempt hit the side of the backboard.
