Re-watched the LIUB game today – you can tell I’m ready for another game – ha! Anyway, I watched to focus on rebounding, to see what I could see.
On the defensive end, it’s all the same stuff we’ve discussed. Discipline, finding a man and putting a body on him. However, on O, it’s a different story I think. I took a couple of screen captures; it seems that we are routinely heading back to the defensive end, even while the shot is in the air. And even when ALL the opponents are under the basket. Is this a reflection of an actual decision we’ve made, or a lack of court awareness?
In this first one, Mackey has just taken a 3 from the corner – he’s out of the frame. Note our 2 guys WAY up top – and they are both rapidly back-peddling.
In this one, Corey just took a shot – he and 2 others are already heading back. In both of these shots, the entire LIUB team is under their own basket.
These are not isolated incidents – I saw this a lot. This could go a long way towards explaining our horrible ORB differential, I think.
