    Bad, bad game. But you do have to give a lot of credit to Hawkins for coming up with a great gameplan. They were able to shut down our top 2 offensive playmakers, which killed our offense.

    Earlier in the season, Nike was chucking way too many deep shots, but recently he's turned things around by making more of an effort to get to the rim. Today, WMU collapsed on him in the paint and, as has been the case the whole season, he had trouble passing the ball out of double and triple teams. The end result was a 2-8 performance on two pointers (with almost all of those misses at the rim) and just 2 assists.

    When Ringo had the ball, WMU almost didn't even bother defending him on the perimeter. They were completely focused on cutting off passing lanes and keeping him from getting to the rim. Because they played him that way, Ringo took a bunch of ill-advised deep shots and threw some bad passes into traffic. That resulted in a 3-10 shooting performance with 4 turnovers.

    The other guys can do things on offense, but they aren't as good at creating their own shots. So when Nike and Ringo get shut down it puts a huge wrench in the offense. If it weren't for Brown and Harouna getting hot and making some contested, deep 3s, this game could have gone from ugly to disastrous. Hopefully Owens and the team will learn from this and make adjustments going forward.

  • Ladies Won Again Today

    YEA US. We are winning but the last two games have seen some poor play at time. Probably (certainly) driving coach up the wall.
    But you know the difference between the men and the ladies? Ladies are having spurts of poor play and still winning!! They are overcoming. Megan is adjusting at the half and during the game. Girls have grit and fire!!
