Macon is passing up open shots to get guarded. It stinks for those seniors to have Gabe end up with the ball at the end of the shot clock. Trey just threw one up.
Late in the half they got a little flow. They better build a lead!
I was soooo happy. I was so proud of Mike Anderson for his coaching in this game. His use of the Match up zone made the difference. Go watch the Florida post game press conf. Mike White and the players were absolutely stunned. I loved it. Mike White and Chiozza praised our match up zone defense, and they praised the changing of defenses from trapping man to match up zone as very disruptive.
I don’t see how you know what many of us think based on a message board interaction. You are making assumptions. Posters have been pretty clear about the trapping man, switches, and press defense that are all causing fatigue. All 3 components of Mike’s preferred style are terribly stressful and that is why you need a deep rotation at guard. We are painfully shallow at guard. I have asked for more match up zone since CJ Jones went into a funk in late Dec. I recognize we have played some match up zone during the season but it is not at the level of utilization we needed to protect our starting guards when CJ and Darius can’t give them enough rest.
