It's not impossible to say that some of the other things you mentioned might not also be in play to some extent in some cases. Just thinking that this seems to be a group that really wants to do the right things and excel. There are a lot of moving parts that need to come together to make the machine as a whole work properly.Very interesting, I would have guessed defense would be easier but that is probably why on ball defense was good but not the team defense. I think I am most frustrated with the defense yesterday because I didn't understand how difficult it might be for young players and because the past couple years or so, the defense has been poor so I have been worried it has been conditioning, schemes, coaching or the players with the wrong temperment. Great post, love to learn new insight.
