Vogt has defended well this half though - besides falling for another shot fake.

Our man-to-man defense hasn't looked very good, they attacked Vogt and had success.

But they had no answer for the 1-3-1. I think the only points they've scored against it were off an offensive...

Put the backups back in. The starters seem to have no energy.

Looking better now, nice little run from the backups. The 1-3-1 zone worked well that time around.

McNeal with the circus shot and made the FT.

Then Diarra doesn't box out and...

Not a pretty start, way too many TO's. Scott is the only guy who looks like he came to play.

WSU attacking Vogt early, he held his own on the interior, but they got him a couple times in the...

I feel the same as you. I'd rather see UC go the the NCAA tournament obviously, but I'm rooting for UCLA as well.

It would be a great underdog story, a great in season turnaround story, a great...

It's the type of matchup the NCAA would love, heck it might be enough to bump us/UCLA from first four out to last four in just to get the story line.

It would also piss Cronin off to no end,...

As I said earlier, he was +6 against UCF in the first half, when everyone said he played terrible. He does a lot right and it makes up for a lot of the mistakes. One example is both his TO's were...

I agree, I knew Diarra was a much better defender than Vogt well before you posted the synergy numbers. The numbers just confirm what I saw and what I'd been saying.

Just watch the games, teams...

Scott had a bad game on defense, but he has been our best defender on the season (though Diarra was better early in the year). He also scored 22 points and grabbed 21 rebounds while playing 40+...

Yup, I have been questioning our defense pretty much all season and I'm not the only one. Mostly because of Vogt. Vogt just lacks the mobility to play man-to-man if the other teams big man can...

Brannen stated that Keith is his ideal player. He tried to recruit Tre Scott to NKU. And I doubt he minds having Jarron. The only guy left he didn't recruit is Diarra and considering our lack of...

Just a quick back of the envelope calculation, so it may be slightly wrong. When Diarra was in the game in the first half, he was +6. Vogt in the first half was +1. I know +/- isn't the greatest...

I don't get your obsession with these two points. If Cronin had stayed, there is no doubt we'd be a NCAA tournament team, regardless of if Jarron was injured.

But this exact team, with players...

Cronin typically goes 7-deep and still manages to get effort out of players. The being unable to put somebody else in seems more like an excuse of Brannen's not reality. There are other guys to put...

Yes, the low playing time makes the numbers more variable. But I'd argue it's largely a reflection of the fact that Cronin demanded energy, rebounding and defense out of his backups. If you don't...

Brannen seems much more willing to just accept poor defense, rebounding and boxing out than Cronin/Huggins would be.

That's why as a coach you need to demand players give 40 minutes of effort, every game. Huggins and Cronin didn't accept lack of effort. Players could miss shot or make mistakes, but if they...
