Re: getting muscled 2nd half
well, that was a treat to watch a well disciplined team play today, and wear down an opponent
just beating Beach players on every play, NT finishes plays, Beach is giving up on plays
North Texas is just too strong
most impressed, we played hard, decent half court defense
still, Murray kind of lost it last few minutes with some ill advised shots, has to learn to use his body better since he doesn't have height,
plus if Murray wants to play next level, he's got to start hitting some 3s, guys can still just sag on him
AJ looking good
they don't shoot as well as their opponents
they outrebound their opponents
they don't commit turnovers, while they force turnovers
in other words, they will out-grind any team
not typically a good formula for loosey-goosey CDM coached teams
I can see our bigs getting stripped left and right, throwing too many ill-advised 4 foot passes into crowds
this will be a great game for the team to go in with a grind it out mentality
not just try to 'speed-up' a game, lol, I hate that term. put pressure on for sure, but speeding up for the sake of speeding up will be just lead to throwing the ball away against these guys,
man up and body on these guys, something we haven't done well.
if Beach can win against these guys, and outmuscle them, I'll be surprised.
