Lack of effort has never been an issue with these kids. They leave it all on the court.
The coach can tell them to stop shooting from the perimeter and control the offense. I know they can.
They were not running that hard. ANd there was a time when green stood still
Good summary, Stud. The deep freeze offense has been killing me. It's one thing to screw around until :15 left on the clock -- you can still work for a quality shot in that time. But it's totally another thing to start trying to score once it's down to :08. The defense only has to work for 5 seconds or so, and you usually end up with a crappy off-balance shot.
I'm less bothered by the 3-point shot than most. Terrible call, for sure. But the only reason we ended up with a chance to win was by playing Hack-a-Shaq. If UVA is denied their ill-gotten gains, the game is closer down the stretch. But then we don't foul, we don't benefit from the missed FTs, and it's probably the same score with :15 left.
