You are of course entitled to your opinion, and you probably have seen more Dane ball than me.   But I have a pretty good source who said;  ‘There has never been a game where we weren’t the better prepared team’. 

Yeah it was David Nichols.  Hahaha

If I get discouraged with the negatives l negativity here and at the games as a fan, I can't imagine how discouraging it would be as a player... We're frustrated, I'm sure they're frustrated too

Circus shots (to me) means driving to through the lane into multiple defenders then tossing it at the hoop assuming you will draw contact and get to the line, with a prayer of it falling and getting a

I assume some of you won’t engage with me because based on the way I see you talk about the kids you probably slammed my son.  LOL.  But as it relates to Brown he is as solid as it gets as a coach.  D

Would be interesting to see year by year points per minute...

Ppg isn't a great measure but... Cremo was a far different player over his time here. Offensive rating bares this out. 

 

Greg stire...very different player 

 

Dallas ennema was a solid player by the time he graduated as was Mike Rowley. 

 

Dj evens... Much better in his second season here... 

 

There are more.

Now now click..I never call you out on some of your righteous indignation.  Don't trigger mine. 

It wouldn't be bad if it wasn't 90% of your posts. We get it. You want Brown gone. And I mean this all in the nicest way possible but it gets old.

Back to back games where the other team has had 10+ steals (13 and 14 respectively). Disaster.

Just realized that we didn't even mention Hansen lately.  What on earth happened to the best player on the Canada tour and was relegated to garbage time today.  Here is another example of regression of a player as the season wears on.  Frustration!

Again... Another cautionary tale with recruiting kids that don't know system and are basically graduating in a few months. This is why I hate the juco recruiting strategy. I have always railed against it... For every one kid that works out... 10 juco kids are wast of scholarships. It's true...

I try not to bash players . But I do call a spade a spade. We r not a very good basketball team . Our players to this point in the season have not progressed at all. It's one of 2 things . The players or the coach . We are turnover prone . Cant shot the basketball.  Have no bench . Ect. Ect . Ect . Ect . 

Will the team maybe improve . Maybe . But the bottom line is the team is no better then the end of last year.  If u are a coach, I would love to know who's fault u think it is.

There are some fans here that get overly negative on everything. That is what being a sports fan is all about. When I complain about it and how it might affect a players mindset when/if they read it, I'm told that they are adults and can handle it, and that complaining is all part of being a fan on a message board. It wouldn't surprise me if the negativity here helped push your son and Cremo to transfer. I've been told directly from people that it had affected some of the other players in the past. It's sad, but it is what it is.

People on the board loved your son his sophomore year, but got on him hard his junior year. Clark exhibits many of the same things people got on David for. There are times when it seems forced and bad decisions are made. Both kids are/were immense talents. Some of the best we have ever seen at UA, but both had frustrating performances at times. Both can/could carry the team and look like the best players on the floor against an ACC team one game, then drive to rim against 3 defenders and throw a circus shot with no foul called on three straight possessions the next game.

Both were 1st team all AE talents. Both would be significantly better with another ball handling threat on the floor with them that UA just hasn't had.

If JoJo is as good as advertised, a guard rotation of Clark/JoJo/Healy/Rizzuto could be hard to beat. 

My biggest frustration with this team is the amount of 1 on 1 play and deep three point shots. The bigs haven't shown they are an inside threat or that they can handle passes. This allows the other team to focus on guarding the perimeter, which forces so much pressure on the guards that they turn the ball over. When the shots are falling, this team can play with every team they have faced so far. When they aren't, the team will see a 5 minute slump of 0 points scored. It's been the same MO since the 16-17 season.

To me, the top priority for the coaching staff right now would be to develop confidence in Lulka, Hank, Lauderdale, and French. Convince Hansen to use his length down low instead of the perimeter. Get Doherty minutes to develop for next year, and focus all recruiting effort on a talented 4 year big.

Lost among all the complaints about regressing and TOs, I've been impressed by Hank this year! He's made a big step forward. Playing really tough inside defense and he's all over every loose ball, though he was getting there toward the back half of last season. I'd love to see him putting up eight points every night too. He's shown he's got some solid post moves, use it more.
