This was a terrible loss. Coming off the MSU win, up big, this was looking like here we go, this team is going to push for the tournament.
Second half they played no defense.
Also, come on coach, your high ball screen was getting jumped with a double and pushed out from the basket every time down in the 2nd half. He had to do something to negate this and they went time after time after time down the floor getting poor shots, looking flustered.
Should have ran a different set.

He has a tendency to let the team go too far before getting them settled down with a timeout and some go-to plays they can run to get a good, quality look. You could see that momentum shift happening in real time. Sometimes it just seems he doesn't have a good feel for the game. And when your team is getting molested with no calls while yours farts and gets a whistle, he has got to uncork once in a while. McCaffrey would have been in full-blown wig-out convulsions had the tables been turned.
I remember Dick Bennett having a very quick trigger finger with timeouts on the road. A good strategy.

Love watching this team. Can they put two halves together? I realize there was foul issues along with Garcia going out, but we have to be better against pressure and trapping defen

It appeared to be the only play they practiced.
