the two guys just need to practice good decisions,
key to Tsohonis is to not isolate him as much, but then not sure he can handle just 'watching' AT run things - type of player that seems engaged only when he has the ball,
it was pretty clear yesterday, we are progressively running more thru AT & AJ, now a key is whether Tsohonis can positively deal with that and focus more defense, and accepting playing off the ball and passing.
Tone just has got away to date being fast - he can develop, but needs some muscle and practice
plus both need film.... that is if they practice what they see lol
Actually, they could watch film of ANY other point guards in the conference and see how it's done properly.
AT showed his athleticism tonight. Wow, he's got loads of it. Somebody who went to practices said George is a player. Well he sure is. I love his game and his IQ. He can shoot it too. Also agree with what somebody said below. We have two guards who are hard to watch.
now have to win both next week for at least a 6th seed.
had Davis played Fullerton (and lost), then all we'd have had to do is win one game next week. The NC really threw a wrench into Beach and Fullerton's seeding chances. Frankly, if somehow we lose to Bakersfield (hopefully not), I wouldn't make the trip to Davis or I'd send a line of Maddox, Yun, Rotegaard, Polynice, and 4 cross-country runners, because there'd be no point for the travel especially with having to play the next Tuesday in Vegas. Next week is more to just get healthy.
today was tough, a game twice should have blown open, and then we just can't string together intelligent or muscle plays.
AT was phenomenal, aside from not trying one outside jumper (there I go again) and missing that front-end of a 1 and 1.
I did like more of the ball movement.
just Tone, he does some things great, he played strong when he ended up on their big, forced a miss, blocked out tough play.
still on that possession near the end, 1) he didn't handle the ball, then on the ensuing Northridge posession he gets all 'revenge' mode and overplays and fouls the Northridge guy to stop the clock for FTs. Yikes!!! just stupid crap like that.
he layed off 3s! hit a nice one, he could have taken 10, thank god he was spoken too.
there was a lot of patience with our offense, good, but just guys lack of awareness and not being strong with simply holding or passes. It's D1, you have to protect the f'n rock. and the 3 pt coverage, we just lack awareness too much sagging in spots, overtrap a couple spots not being aware.
this is a talented Beach team, so hopefully they are all healed for the BWCT. they could win 4, but not likely. consider just playing those aforementioned 4 next plus cross-country players next week, while everybody heals up, might be the best strategy.
heck, Davis can back out of losing to Fullerton and make a hellacious road trip into one easy game
