Davis just wants to drive all the time. We've got to stop going over the top of screens and falling for pump fakes. Just back off and keep him out of the lane.

Not a great game on either end. We weren't getting many open threes, and we only made 25% from beyond the arc. We were focused on posting up Davis, but it mostly resulted in midrange looks where we were 6 for 19. Lakhin had an incredible game though, scoring 22 on 14 shots. He was open on a lot of pick and rolls, leading to a perfect 10 for 10 at the rim including 4 dunks.

Defensively we I thought we had the wrong gameplan against Davis. We played him as if he is a shooter, but he only scored 9 points from the field on 10 shots. But he scored 12 at the free throw line and had 6 assists (and probably a lot of hockey assists). Williams had a great game despite pretty good defense against him. He was making tough shots all day.

Tired of losing "big" games. Wes better start putting something together. Better land some talent quick.

Both Skillings and Reed were worse on defense today. I'm not sure why Hensley has been benched, he's a very good defender (though his offense and rebounding leave a lot to be desired).

Hensley ain't the answer.

Reed was, Skillings was not. Reed brings nothing to the table. Still can't figure out what he does for this team. His shot is fugly. JD's defense outside of taking one charge was awful. Got beat back door numerous times and if you watch him he actually ends up setting screens on his own guys. At least Skillings can block shots and disrupt players.

Hensley isn't any good. It's why he was at UNCG.

If there's been any trend of the young Wes Miller era, it's been this.

It's hard to tell how much of the blame goes towards being poorly prepared/coached and how much can be attributed to just not having the horses to compete.

Would we have been a much better team with a healthy Newman/Phinisee?

I personally don't think so.
