Agree. Press. Create turnovers. Score.

Pressing is contingent on us making shots though. We can half court trap otherwise.

Talent usually wins out. If it’s used properly. Play the best 5 the most minutes and we win by double digits.

What if we play 11 in the first 10 minutes?

Depends on the minute breakdown and who is on the court. If Jayden is out there with Duren , Lester and Emoni it’s all good. If he’s in there with the East clan and Tyler it’s not.

We are tough and talented and they know it and are afraid.

If his son really said that it's more proof you can't trust lawyers.

We suspect that the VaTech game will be a challenge but fear is not the emotion they emote.

It would also indicate that he doesn't understand how basketball crazy our fans are either.

Not sure why people get caught up "in the first 8 minutes".
Rotation was way down vs Western Ky.
We basically played 9 guys - and we STILL had 26 turnovers.
We had 6 TO's in the first 6 minutes - all committed by starters.

Va Tech is very good…Alleyne is tough and Mutts is a skywalker. If he gets loose on a break, you will be impressed. Tigers need to put that relentless pressure on their guards…

Right and Minott had one in his brief playing time and somehow got relegated to the bench of the rest of the game but Dandridge can walk around out there like he doesn't care that his man out rebounds and scores on him and still get 15-20 minutes.

So they got good once Nolley left?

I remember looking over his stats there and he shot a lot. I brought that up and was told he was all they had.

There is a lot of player development/turnover in 3 years. What they were then is not representative of what they are now.

RE: VaTech game discussion
1982; monday morning 7th grade.
We pick teams at the bus stop for a quick 15 game of street football. Its 3v3, my team is the Tigers. My neighbors team is the Tide. I don't know if we win, my team usually does...

On the bus my neighbor is pissed at me. Tigers suck he says. I say we are good, "we've beat cincy and Fla State". He says "yea at home, you got Va Tech on the road tonight". I say, "ya, they are tough, but if we beat them we are good". He says, "yea IF you beat them you guys are good".

We are good.

I’m not sure why vtech is not ranked? This is basically the same squad that beat a top 5 nova team early in the year last year and made the ncaa tourney.

They're just outside the top 25 in both polls.

Thanks for the explanation! I've been watching college sports since the 60's and had no idea that was even possible.
