This is a good point


I agree that our offensive stagnation was in part a lack of offensive flexibility. Teams figured out that they could apply a lot of ball pressure and overplay passing lanes (e.g. extend) and that there were literally no consequences. Get up in the grill of our facilitators and they just retreat and reset. No driving to draw a foul against a handsy defender, no backdoor cuts or hitting cutters filling space underneath. No ball screens.

Remove our ability to pass the ball around the perimeter and we do not have a good enough Plan B. I do not want to solve that merely with 'get better talent and let them create', I want an offensive system that knows how to punish extended defenders by getting fouls and layups. Get some Princeton or Michigan sets in there or at least use the ball screening options that are in our own offense.

  We were actually a great 3pt shooting team last year -- crossedsabres8 09/13/2017 10:42AM
