We sure haven’t made the dance. OSU would’ve been a big resume building W. Would’ve been.
We are running out of opportunities. And we are definitely not passing the “eye test”
It’s very frustrating. I think we would’ve won the game with Desi in there not making stupid turnovers and Vance Jackson not jacking up hopeless treys and air balling layups. I get it, deciding playing time and the rotation is a small part of the whole game plan. But I’m not sure what’s so subtle and complex in the strategy that my untrained eye can’t see in our coach’s choices. I know his condescending attitude in press conferences is annoying, but not nearly as annoying as predictable failures in the final minutes of the game from recurring turnover and shot selection problems by the same players again and again. OSU was not killing us on pick and roll this game, so what was muss’s excuse this time? We were getting killed on rebounds and straight up easy points in the paint from one on one matchups and that sorry zone we tried that exposed conner’s non extistent rim protection and still couldn’t stop their star scorer in the back court. I’m genuinely interested in what the coaches reasoning was, but I’m done making excuses for him. Anyone else care to take a stab at it?
