We have 2 senior point guards in the starting lineup. How the f**k else would you want to match up against a pressing team?

Have 2 senior point guards who have been coached by someone competent?

LOL

 

We heard these same excuses when Bubbles was here. Groce likes using the "we need to become more synchronized" excuse this year. Is he for real? We watch teams with less talent and younger players that havent played together for as long wipe the floor with us year after year of late. If you know how to coach you dont say dumb crap like this. and you rarely lose as badly as Groce coached Illini teams have since he has been here. He is a crappy coach. We win games because we have talented players. We lose them because we get exposed because that talent requires an offense to succeed against good teams. Groce doesnt give our players that. He rolls the ball out and we play YMCA ball hoping a few guys are hot from 3 and can create their own shot.

I have been saying the same thing for some time about the Y ball. This team is not coached. He finds his favorites and claps on the sideline saying go get'em. There is good enough talent on this team, but there is no leadership. The 2 senior guards ran to the corner everytime to get the ball, then stopped and dribbled and tried to bring the ball up the sideline. That is exactly what the press wants you to do. Our freshmen guard comes in, who has not had 4 years of Groce teaching's, and catch's the ball in stride and immediately takes it up center court and passes it to someone open up court. Now it don't take a genius to figure out that we are better off we players that have not been coached for very long by Groce. You know, guys that still remember what their HS coach taught them.

Watching this team make the same mistakes on the press as a 6th grade basketball team was mind boggling.

 

His incompetence is much worse than I even imagined.

Glad to see I wasn't the only one that noticed that about Lucas, the only time it didn't go to Lucas was when he fought to stay out of the corners. And the half court trap that WVU applied and body bumped him twice causing him to turn it over was bull.

Postgame presser comment

 

They’ve forced everyone they’ve played into 20-plus turnovers, Groce said. We were determined to try and not get to that ‘20’ number. It just didn’t happen.

 

So, one of our stretch objectives was to have less than 20 turnovers.

so wierd teams seem to have their best games of the year against us huh :lol:/>

 

We are the best elixir for whatever is ailing an opponent. That's what happens when you are poorly coached and barely prepped.
