Psrt of the failure on Offense was that UVa ni=oticeably stepped up their Defense after a TV timeout around the same time as the 2 missed free throws
We are about where I thought we would be at the start of the season. I said before the season started that if we could make the NIT this year, I'd be happy. I'll admit that our fast start had gotten me thinking that maybe the NCAA tourney was a possibility this year, and so it was very disappointing when we got off to such an awful start in our ACC games. But all in all, the season has played out about as I had expected. I just hope we can scratch out another couple of wins and get an NIT bid. These kids deserve it. They've played hard.
I have to admit, that's a fair question. If it were me on the bench, I'd be screaming at the them to "ATTACK THE DAMN BASKET!!!"
Raines has definitely improved tremendously, no doubt about it. He's now a decent scoring threat down low.
you still have a legitimate beef on them allowing the bucket in the first place. i've watched it several times and i have no problems admitting i would be livid if that had happened to us. of course the shot itself was also absurdly lucky!
i do think things evened out in the end, as you said they missed calls both ways and you guys had some shots fall that had no business dropping in. overall a very entertaining game and pretty high-quality, if you look at the stats.
I agree. On the whole I thought it was a well-played game by both teams.
