I wanted us to get a signature win as much as anyone else and thought we had a good chance of doing so, but I do look at this as a good learning experience:

1) Seemed like Memphis played a lot of full and half court pressure D, with which we have struggled in the past. Good test for the guys.
2) Experienced the consequences of being careless with the ball, as well as heaving up bad shots.
3) Some confidence built from the comeback to tie up the game despite being down by double digits and not playing well.

I feel like this might make the most valuable game film of the season and hopefully helps the team learn and improve as they head into AE play.

Unbelievable. Not using our heads.


We are good but not athletic enough to beat talented opposing guards off the dribble, especially with all of the travelling calls being made. Ball movement, cutters, screens, and constant off-the-ball movement will be needed to beat teams like Louisville and UVM, the latter of which looked very good against LCC on Monday.

 

 

Noticed it was close to a 25pt win

For most of the games we've played so far, we've only had to play in 4th gear, or 3rd for some games,

to pull out wins and exert the according energy.

 

With Memphis, we were forced into 5th gear, and forced to exert a ton of energy, which we are not used to doing.  Everything needs to be

sped up, including the passes, cuts, shots.... hard to play well and win under those circumstances.  If

we played programs like the standard of Memphis game in and game out, I think we would be conditioned

to takes games like Memphis more often than not.

 

I think we need to play faster during conference play, in order to prepare for Vermont come conference tournament time

Instead of beating teams we beat by 7, our goal should be beating them by 20

Watching Louisville vs. Memphis. Hope our guys feel a little better about their performance vs. this very talented, big (compared to us) and athletic Memphis team. Holding their own vs. Louisville.

Siena and Louisville were close up to the half. We are capable of a good showing!
