Not sure if we can afford that in the biggest of big games. I agree in general though.

You can afford 6-8min of Moore. Just needs stop trying score and focus on rebounds

I agree. Those 6-8 minutes for the big men is critical. It gives others the rest they need to finish the game (Ellis and Deberry). Moore simply needs to be productive. Whether that is rebounding, second chance points, passing or shooting.

It would be great if we can clean that up a little but it's been an issue for the style of D we play all along. All the rotations and switches we do...it's going to happen here and there but sometimes it happens too much. Bottom line is our D is extremely good in most other aspects. I feel that is one thing we have to live with from time to time to play the style we do. Last game was too many...I agree

I remember Xavier shredding the matchup zone last year forcing UC to go to man-to-man which they were much better at. I wish we'd see more man defense with switches vs the matchup zone we are playing in now. It leads to way to many open 3's and good shooting teams will have a field day with it.

That may not be a bad idea but we are 4th in the nation in scoring D. Changing things around to fix one glaring issue may not be the best fix. I think we just need to be more aware of it really.

I think you also have to look at who we have been playing. But I think it's a good defense to use but would also like to have a pure man defense in the arsenal against teams like Butler and Xavier that are good passing/shooting teams.

Agreed

Plus, GW was the exception, not the rule. Normally we hold teams to very low 3 point scoring %

I mean Im almost betting it was part of the game plan. You face a team with great bigs who shoot 25% from 3, the game plan is to shut down the bigs and give them the 3 point shot.

If George Washington shot there season average, UC would have won by 20. Just so happens that they had a single good game from 3

Exactly. Just like last year they didn't mind Dee Davis shooting 3's, he just happened to have the game of his life. The 3-point defense has always been good with Cronin here.

Gary Clark, Shaq, and Jenifer are 11-23 on the season from 3, would anybody here care if we let any of those 3 shoot wide open 3's all day? Of course not, but weird things can happen in small sample sizes.

Well you guys know regardless of the stats and what defense we throw at X, someone(s) will have a career day shooting and won't duplicate it again all year. It will piss all of us off and then we go about the rest of the season lol
