Michigan State. I want it badly too. Poker mentality, give me a chip and a chair and i have a chance. Michigan State is not unbeatable and they are one of the few remaining Big Time programs we haven't played since my fandom started. Want them bad. But the fellas need to focus on the task at hand and beat Syracuse. The fans can look forward all we want

Those forwards MUST be outside shooters, as Gbinje is only 200 pounds. A creampuff like Mikesell sizewise?

I guess Coleman is their enforcer. That means there is room for Pierre and Pollard (and possibly Big steve) to score inside.

Their guards are big!! here's hoping that some guys can hit the 3 ball, but i expect Scooch to penetrate and explore that zone some with some interior drive and dish. Same with Pierre and Cooke, and also Pollard.

I tend to lean towards the less "flashy" girls. And that one on the far right is the runaway winner, the bow in the hair is a nice touch.

Yes, the way to beat their zone is penetrate inside...not taking three's unless they are kick out's after

Quotes from Syracuse News Conference:

JIM BOEHEIM: We're happy to be here. This team has worked very, very hard this year, and we're excited to be in the tournament and to be playing a team like Dayton that obviously is a tremendous basketball team. We have an experience with them two years ago, and know how good they are. And then I think they won one of the toughest conferences this year in the country. So we have tremendous respect for them and know just how good they are.

Q. Allen Griffin is a guy you really embraced. He played for you. He was on your staff and you helped him get the job at Dayton. What is it about this guy?

JIM BOEHEIM: I love Allen Griffin. He's the best. He's rooting for Dayton, trust me, but there's a little part of him inside that's he's got Orange, don't worry, you know that. The most unique thing, Allen Griffin started as a sophomore, had a pretty good year. His junior year I sat him, I started somebody else. And that normally is transfer or I hate you, I'm not going to ever do anything for you. He worked right through it and ended up contributing, making a big contribution that year after that. And he's one of the best I've ever had. And when I knew there was an opening, I called Archie and I said 'this is a guy that would be an absolute great coach for you' and I think he has been, I think he's one of the best ever.

Q. Going back to 2014, what do you remember about that game in terms of the way they limited 3-point shooting. And it's a lot of the same guys a
lot of the same players you'll be facing what do you remember about that game and how hard it was to get good shots around the arc?

MICHAEL GBINIJE: We have to take what the defense gives us. They were trying to run us off the line, you've got to attack the basket strong and eventually that will open up the 3-point shot.

TREVOR COONEY: They're a really good defensive team and that's what they're known for. I think we're able to get the movement that we want to get and getting in the lane and make plays, we'll get the shots we want.

Excerpts from Dayton Press Conference

Q. You've had a good run at Dayton the last four years. But before you, Brian Gregory, Oliver Purnell and of course, Don, for years. What is the secret at Dayton? What is it about Dayton that helps so many different guys have success there?

ARCHIE MILLER: Well, I think at first it has to start and stop with the administration. I think it has to go down from the vision of the administration and understanding that basketball is extremely important. I think the second thing would be the tradition-based fans, a community feel in town, but a fan base that's very knowledgeable that loves our arena, that loves the feel of being a part of a winner. And I think that's carried over. Right now the momentum that we have with our fan base and what's going on in the city of Dayton around our program is a high. But I think it starts from the top. Administration and the importance and the understanding that we have a great fan base and we need to cater to them. And the vision is always to continue to improve. You'll see when we tip at 11:15, we're going to have a heck of a showing here.

Q. Ever since 2014, with that Elite Eight run, your name comes up whenever there's a job opening out there. How do you handle that?

ARCHIE MILLER: I never pay any attention to it, to be honest with you. I have a job to do. Whether I'm an assistant coach, a graduate assistant or now the head coach I've always been taught if you do a great job at what you're doing, good things will happen. I just try to do a great job for our players at Dayton. I'm very, very comfortable at Dayton. We have a place, I think, to continue to get even better and better and what we do right now we own, it's ours, and I'm proud of that.

And Archie is funny too:

Q. You talked about Coach Griffin. Looking at this week, I guess, what does he bring to the table in terms of helping prepare your team?

ARCHIE MILLER: Nothing. Nothing. He's scared to death. He's scared to death. Coach Boeheim scares him like no other person has ever been scared. He has no value in this game at all, actually. He just sits there and is very quiet on the bench. No, Griff has done a great job, and he's done a great job for us in his time here, and he does a great job with our players. There's not much he's going to tell me that I'm not going to know: They're going to play a real good zone. They're going to get their best players shots. That's what they do. They play with great freedom. He understands that more than anybody because he's been there. But there's a couple of things that he has a familiarity with that help us a little bit, but your personnel, your players they have to go out there and play.

Just read that Syracuse did NOT sell all their allowed tickets for the game so they opened up those seats to Flyer fans. Anyone know how many tickets they send to the schools??? 300??? 500??? Probably not going to be many Orange fans in attendance. I realize some got them from other sources, but hard to believe they didn't sell out their allotment.

Ladies and gentlemen, I look forward to watching this game with you all in this thread. Three straight trips to the NCAA tournament is something pretty awesome, and when I was a student during the Jim O'Brien years I wasn't sure this would ever happen. I apologize in advance for any snark or irrational referee bashing which is sure to follow, but I swear it comes from a place of love. Also, I have not been drinking.

At the half, down 30 - 28 but gave up many opportunities. The Orange got hot after a cold shooting start.

We can do this. Only 4 FT per team, they are letting the teams play.

Medford
03-18-2016, 01:01 PM
against the zone, I don't like waiting that long, its already taking them too long to get into their offense, to try and pull it off when only starting at 10 seconds was asking for a poor shot.

Only shooting 35%, and it is not due to bad three shooting. Our rebounding in the last ten minutes was pathetic. Cuse now up 20-14.

Only 3 fouls on us, so no one with 2. The A10 refs would have us for 12 at this point.

I say keep trying to get the ball to the bigs and hope they start to finish. If they start trying to shoot their way out of this, it will be a long second half. Keep up the D and I like UD's chances to make plays down the stretch.

Gotta finish shots. Go Flyers!

Steve has one foul according to ESPN.

We had several turnovers passing into the paint/zone -- but we have to keep doing that and clean it up. The shots are there. Good convert. And gotta rebound.
Scoochie needs to keep shooting 3's. He's 3-3.

Smitty10
03-18-2016, 01:06 PM
I tend to agree with you...work for a great shot and knock it down, even if you give the opponent another shot.

I thought maybe knowing they would get the ball to start the 2nd half they set it up to try and take the lead. I thought by having Steve out there they would fake it inside(which they never tried to do) and find and open 3.

You are correct. NCAA stat sheet had him at 2 for awhile -- must have made a correction because it has only 1 now.

They are keeping the two at the top of the zone close together to try to neutralize Pierre. They're going to have to penetrate from the wings and either dump it to opposite side for Steve or kick to opposite corner/wing for threes.

Smitty10

Pierre has not come out. is that correct?

There was a point where Pollard and Steve were both on the court so I think DP took a breather then.

Only 2 down and not playing great but neither is Syracuse. We have to break out. Someone tell Steve that stop just reaching out for passes and rebounds - move your big body and go for it. Once again a zone is proving difficult for us but we have the shooters but zones just confuse us. Agree too much moving ball around east \ west. Syracuse just sifts the zone and then starting to look for a shot with 10 seconds left. Pass ball in and out if necessary to make the zone react inward.

Looking back all the signs were there. And noted. Ad nauseum. Better get what's wrong with the intra-dynamics of the team fixed so they can practice together to work this out.
