Your explanation sounds good to me.


More broadly, we rely heavily on the pass instead of the drive for ball movement. Deny those perimeter passes, and you have to be able to drive. Teams that extend the perimeter are forcing us to put the ball on the floor to execute offense, because we are not good at that.

A tightly called game like WVU should have helped us neutralize the heavy ball pressure (we got into the bonus in both halves, something that almost never happens). If we wanted to take what they were giving us, we could have keep trying to draw fouls until some of their key players got into foul trouble instead of hunting for open jumpers.
