It is all about defense and our defense is not very good. Maybe only one game where we did not score enough to win. Defense is a lot about effort. Our kids think they are giving the effort but if you watch some of the better defensive teams you will see the difference.
We have the 2nd highest scoring defense in the SEC and I believe we’re 3rd or 4th overall in the SEC on defense.
They have break downs on switches and end up with too many wide open 3’s given up. They foul too much 40 to 50 feet from the basket. The rebounding was statically better last night they finished -1 but Tennessee shot over 50%. So that isn’t a real good snap shot to evaluate. Last night failing to finishing dunks and layups around the rim was the another failure. Walking and trying to make passes that weren’t there. TO’s that just kill runs.
