Can someone tell me what the Gophers offensive philosophy is? What are they trying to accomplish? They just seem like they run around with no purpose and wait for someone to jack up a bomb. And all too often we have 4 guys on the floor who can't shoot - or don't want to.
When you have no one who can shoot, and no one who can go by anyone........this is what you get.

You've been watching it for years.

Sometimes our shots look like we're just launching hand grenades at the basket.
Even the guys who are supposed to be good shooters (Battle, Garcia) just look like they're throwing shots up out of desperation -- no flow, no rhythm, no purpose.
It's been better today, but Battle and Garcia are the main culprits on forcing shots.

He gets the call every time. He’s done it worse at least twice than what Garcia was called for.

That's just how it is. Whenever contact comes, Dickenson gets the call. The hooks that he gets away with is crazy too. Probably the reason why he hasn't gone out for the draft. His game works at this level with refs who let you get away with whatever.

I’m still torn if our players are just not good enough or if we’re that poorly coached.

I tend to lean toward players not being good enough, and I hope I’m right.

Adding in Ihnen, Fox, Christie, and Evans should go along way next year you’d think. Another guard would also be huge.

It's hard for me to imagine where the shots much less the points come from without those two forcing shots.

Might answer my own question here, this lineup is not even close to big ten level with Garcia out. And only slightly better with Garcia in.

If he's out any games, they are going to be painful to watch.

We can only hope that Michigan shoots FTs as poorly as we do. Our only chance.

Neither Ihnen nor Fox will have played a basketball game in more than two and a half years when next season starts, and Fox has never played higher than D2. Evans and Christie will be promising but raw college freshmen. People are putting WAY too much weight on these guys to turn things around next year.

Probably a dumb question but can you draw a charge while jumping?

That was a block. He jumped up and into cooper. They have been called so many calls against us so this better be reversed
