Texas vs Cooler Than A Cal Bear's Toenails

Positives: effort on the defensive end, taking much better care of the ball, lots of assists, more than half of our attempts aren't from deep, Febres actually hitting his looks, and rebounds about even (hey, for us, that's a positive).

Negatives: still too many threes attempted, not driving to the hoop, not getting to the charity stripe, no semblance of an offensive scheme, and suddenly (already) a very short bench (only three subs used so far).

The short bench kills us every year. Shaka starts out playing everyone but quickly whittles it to two or three primary subs and everyone else collects dust on the pine.

Oh, and I left out the biggest positive: a win.

I think not getting humiliated by Duke is the biggest positive.

Welp, I thought we'd end NYC 1-1 and we technically will. 

Wasn’t a technical win. It was an outright win against what was a 4-1 team. This team has potential.

Our offensive movement is so pointless. We set shitty screens, guys cutting from the baseline are just doing it robotically, not even looking for the ball and our offense goes completely flat if one of our guards isn’t having a great night because we rely on them to make everything happen. Our offensive system never gets guys open or puts any stress on the defense whatsoever. Been that way for four fucking years. 
 

Tl;dr shaka sucks.

Stop. 

 

That win won't mean much come March.

Febres plays way too many minutes for a 1-dimensional player. He should essentially be a Sydmill Harris type who comes in for around 20 minutes or so depending on how hot he is.

Agree... has to improve, but Ramey and AJ are poorly developed as drive and penetrate guards and take too many poor shots.

Febres is too inconsistent shooting, and a terrible defender.  Hope some of the younger guys keep developing because there is some raw talent there...

This. 

We blew out a shitty team we were supposed to blow out.  That win tells us nothing about this team other than we are still on pace to go 19-12--if that.

I didn’t say it would, but we clearly have different definitions for the word “technical” so let’s leave it at that...

Hepa getting zero development minutes.  Is he hurt, in doghouse or poor coaching?

he's the latest Jordan Barnett/James Banks.

 Seems like would have been a good game for him to get some minutes and don’t get why he didn’t.  He’ was recruited for his offensive skills which we need badly.

I'm afraid that with Yaklich's new emphasis on being able to guard your man with absolutely no expectation of help side defense Hepa is getting lost in the shuffle.

If not now, then when?   Zero minutes this game ?  Give me a fucking break.

I purposely didn't watch in hopes it would guide our team to a win. We won, so hell yeah! Now let's hope Dook doesn't do unholy things to this team. I don't expect a win, but I'd like to see us keep it respectable. 

 

Edit: just checked and apparently I went full Spider. We don't play Dook, do we since we lost to Georgetown? Correct me if I'm wrong.
