I agree, 99. With the exception of the barrage of 3s AU hit early on, I think our defense did a decent job. My main concern is the amount of indecisiveness on offense. It won't matter how small Beaumont's frontline is tonight, because Knight is probably smart enough to counter our height advantage with zone defense.
To win tonight's game, our guards have to be aggressive. They need to penetrate and either score or dish off to our big men underneath. If we stand around on the perimeter playing catch until we have to fling up a 3 before the shot clock expires, we won't be leaving Texas with a win.
I'm not worried about our offense long-term. I think BA is aggressive enough to penetrate and dish to open guys (who I think will eventually hit those open shots) and we will get enough inside scoring from JA, Marko and JW. What worries me is our defense. Specifically, our perimeter defense. This idea of doubling down on guys who are no threat at all in the post is insane and will kill us. There's no reason to double down on a post player who is just as likely to travel as make a bucket down low.
