Stuff I see. Doughty playing though. Can't ask for him to do any more on defense. He's attacking the rim without any sense of urgency though. 3 shots blocked because he hadn't turned the switch on. 

Pace will take care of itself if we play our game. 

Don't fall into the trap, we can attack the goal

Good things happen when the ball touches the high post. Like every single time. Somebody besides me has to see this.

The defense collapses on the driver when we go to the rim.  We should have somebody follow him and drop the ball back to the follower for an open 5 footer.

If it helps, I'm not even watching or paying attention to it. Just refreshing this thread every so often.

Forgive my lack of basketball IQ, but it looks to me like we’re making those tough inside shots, and with those threes not falling yet, that is a great sign. An even better sign is I see flashes of that speed and pace we want to play. If we get that going  and those threes in the second half (like I believed we will) then watch out.

I'd still like to put Harper at the 2 for the match up and JVon's driving

Samir is doing ok on defense though. About as ok as anybody is going to do at least. Could we mess that up?

And the baseline is open as an alley to drive and dish to the backside corner

My nerves are shot.  I’m watching this game on an iPad on the turnpike north of Orlando.  So far, so good. 😬 I have to be a bit more subdued, because I’m with my Vols brother and sister-in-law.  They are rooting for Auburn, though.  My mojo is all screwed up, so I am counting on all of y’all.  War Eagle!!!!

Right. That happens when the ball enters into the high post, with a Mac engaged the way he is we could exploit that

Leave Doughty in at 3 for his D or sub BB for the shooting, but the drive and dish is wide open

This is what I'm seeing. Drive and follow.

This mofo Jerome is key to the Cavaliers this game. If we contain him in the 2nd half, we play Monday for the marbles.

Interesting.  Thought the offense looked much better with JVon in. Although Harper did have some nice finishes. I like Birds idea!!

We need to follow our shots more. There was chances to get more offensive rebounds. Overall I like where we are we can play straight up with them. If 3’s start falling well blow it open.

I know Virginia isn't committing to offensive rebounds but that makes it all the more critical on the rebounding defensively.  Late in half, Virginia is facing contested shots inside the arc as well, and we are doing a good job with the rebounds.  Let's play their pace defensively get the stop, and the rebound.  Get the smart bucket and slowly pull away.  Virginia will start to press and then wax them.

 

This is definitely a game we have to force the officials to give us 2 foul shots as Cole has mentioned all year.
