Most pathetic excuse for defensive basketball team I’ve ever seen. LSU gets beat by 20 plus two straight games and they got 12 3-pointers with 16 minutes left in the game and CMA just looks at them…lol
Some of our fans will never blame our staff for anything, but this is the worst coaching staff in the SEC.
exactly! this is not a good team at all and with all our experience,no way it should be happening…very poor job by CMA ,don’t even deserve to be in the NCAA.
I’m in shock that Mike isn’t making changes like he did last year. I don’t understand how he is sticking with the trapping when our depth at guard is more shallow than last year. Trapping and switching wears you out so you need a deep rotation at guard, and pressing takes fatigue to another level too.
AR cures all ills.
I’ve been keeping track of the season/career highs and bounce-back games given up in conference play. It really is crazy how regularly it happens.
- KeVaughn Allen: season-high 28 points on 6 of 7 from 3. He was 3 of 14 from deep and averaged 4.3 points in the three previous games.
- Ole Miss’ Terence Davis: season-high 30 points on 10 of 15 shooting and 5 of 8 from 3-point range. He entered the game shooting 23 percent from the floor and 12 percent from 3 in conference play.
- Georgia guard Turtle Jackson: career-high five 3s. Entered the game 6 of 34 from 3-point range in Georgia’s first seven SEC games.
- Texas A&M’s D.J. Hogg: came into Tuesday’s game 1 of 13 from distance over the previous three games. After missing his first two shots, he knocked down 3 of his next 4 and A&M pulled away.
- Missouri’s Kassius Robertson scored a season-high 26 points on a season-high six 3s.
- Tennessee’s Admiral Schofield made a career-high four 3s in the conference opener.
- LSU’s Tremont Waters finished with a career-high 11 assists in Baton Rouge (19 in the two meetings).
Something has to change. That’s pretty embarrassing.
It is. I can’t recall an Arkansas team with defense this bad. It’s noticeably bad, like even a casual fan can tell how bad it is. If Macon and Barford weren’t such gifted scorers this team probably wouldn’t even be .500, as their overall record.
It is easy to brake out of a shooting slump against us because we leave back side guards WIDE OPEN. We collapse on the ball handler with double teams/traps that leaves perimeter players wide open. Any team that is good at passing around the perimeter and using inside-out passes will kill our trapping defense.
Our “game plan” is the definition of insanity
