Man this team is coming along way better than I expected. They've got some great momentum going into conference play.
They're a bunch of individuals playing 1v1 offensively, when they get stopped they'd just throw it back out. On top of that they play zero defense. They made UC look like an offensive juggernaut. That 2-3 zone they ran to start the 2nd half was an absolute joke. Pass to elbow, back door layup. Pass to elbow, give-n-go layup. Pass to elbow, open 3 on the wing.Is UCLA that bad?
Yet in the postgame Cronin whines about the defensive effort. I'm starting to actually hate the guy. Perhaps stop trying to hold the opponent to 40 ppg and consider giving a f about offenseQuality loss to the 248th ranked team in the country. 15 turnovers and 8/18 FT's. Christ.
That’s the path X is on. Although they have no chance of making the tournament this yearCronin's a goof. He has definitely peaked as a coach. This team will probably make the tournament one last time next season then fade into oblivion for good.
Did you watch the game? Sure you can be happy for the W but they were horrendous down the stretch. Defensive lapses, missed FTs. It was not a game they should have won. Cumberland bailed them out in OT, though UConn missing their best player Adams who fouled out was likely the biggest deciding factor.i understand that maybe your team didn't play as well as you'd like them to, but man, can Mick ever just be happy with a win?
good grief it's got to be tough to go through life as angry as he seems to be.
If UC wins Sunday then they're in the driver's seat for the conference. If they lose, they can still win the regular season as long as they win out afterwards (with UC being 1-0 vs Temple and Houston being 1-1).I expect them to lose a close one at Houston over the weekend, but am less sure about it now than I was just a couple weeks ago.
