I've said it before and I'll say it again. You can't win the A-10 tourney without a double bye. Don't give a shit that Richmond pulled off a fluke last year. The freshness factor is just too great, especially if you don't run the team you play on Wednesday out of the building and give the starters some rest. Going to the wire with Richmond killed us.
Not only did they set screens but they moved the ball so fast as those screens went. By the time our guy go through the screen to chase the ball, either the ball was gone or they already had a shot up. Pretty remarkable how they carved us up and we couldn't do a damn thing about it for whatever reason.I thought slu did a great job of getting guys open by setting screens. Earlier in our season some pointed out our NBA style offense didn't have the players for it. While watching Uva beat Unc, they also got shooters open with set plays that used different off ball screening. Uva and Slu may not have NBA guys. We certainly don't. However, we run an NBA offense that doesn't help get our shooters open. I hope this changes.
Our donors make all of this possible! Thank you for your continued support of MasonHoops, we couldn't do it without you.
