Goat of the Game - UD Loss at GW

Well folks, had to drive, so listened to Larry & Brooks on the radio. Wasn't any better to listen to versus watching. They echoed what was written in the game thread.....missing wide open 3's, slow start. Poor 1st half shooting. Brooks was especially vocal about being more physical on the offensive end. 2nd game in a row for DaRon, where he just couldn't convert...and when you can't buy a 3, and the bigs are BIG down low, well it gets ugly.

Which Flyer would like a mulligan for today's game? In the spirit of the recent AG comments, please keep your comments above the line. They don't need to be sunshine & puppies, but let's not get personal.

I voted for Brea today. Just felt he missed too many opportunities and from what was said on the radio, very good looks. I leaned to Blakney, but at least he provides great D. However, considering this is Blakney's 3rd year, his inconstancy on the offensive end hurts. Especially when you have a true freshman (Mike) and there other guys coming off injury. (Mali, Elvis, Brea).

One other thought. I can't help but wonder if AG's insistence on slowing down the offensive end, and the pound it in to Holmes strategy is wearing Da Ron down. I've watched AG slow down Mike many times bringing the ball up, and a few fast break possessions where De Ron didnt get beat down, would be welcome. Of course, as today's game demonstrates, you gotta hit some jumpers. Something tells me that both Mike & Mali would like to up the tempo.

Our offense is slow and predictable. If we don’t start playing with more quickness, determination and physicality, the rest of the season will be painful to watch. But if we do those things, we have enough talent on the team to steamroll the A10 the rest of the way.

I went ahead and voted CAG, because this was a team failure in many ways, and heís the head coach. When I saw us settling (?) for 3-pointers to start the game, we kept missing those shots, and GW kept getting the rebounds and coming down to run its offense, I knew it was going to be a long day. Thatís on the gameplan, and the gameplan is on the coaching staff, specifically the HC. So, there you go.

Not any votes for individual. Its a team fail.

Like that dog food commercial, sprayed on flavor and powdered meat.

No real meat there.

One thing is clear to me...we do not have an answer to quick guards. They were getting in the lane at will and either kicking it out or dropping in down for dunks. We better get that addressed quickly, as I watched LaSalle/St. Louis and both of those teams have quick guards. Quickness is trumping size.

And this is why I don't think we have a chance at running the table at A10 Tourney.

This team's identity is supposed to be defense. And defense is supposed to be more dependably consistent than offense. We have at the 5 the single season block record holder. At the 4 we have what announcers are calling A10 defensive player of the year. At the 2 or 3, we have the specialist we count on to stop the other team's best scorer. And we have Mali who's also a great pesky defensive player. Yet we let GW shoot 49 percent from the field and score 70. 70 might not be much in a normal game, but when you have a team that depends on defense and does not have a consistent funtioning offense, it's much too much.

Mali only played 21 minutes. Elvis played 13 minutes. We will play better against quick guards as they improve their game conditioning. That doesnít answer all the questions, but it does help the team respond to other teamís back court advantages.

Mali only played 21 minutes. Heíll be back up to playing 30+ minutes over the next 2 weeks and playing better D over those 30 minutes.

Not the point. Defensive teams need to be consistent defensively. Mali being injured is no excuse for GW having their way with us on the inside. Really there's no excuse for that. No team in the A10 should be out playing us in the paint, yet for the last 3 games they have had no trouble.

We gave up 63 points in the first 39 minutes, only a few points off our season average. The last 13 points they scored were foul shots in the last minute when we started hacking. Actually the last 19 points GW scored in the game were at the line!

Fix the **** offense and we would not be having this conversation as we would have had this game and at least half our other losses put away long before the final minute. No time nor interested to dwell on all that is wrong at this point other than to say that if we have as much "pro talent" as advertised, get your butts moving much sooner in the shot clock and put some **** points on the board.

No complaints about the turnovers? Geez, we had 6 They had 12. We lost the reb. battle by 4, Assists were even, we blocked 4 shots to their 3, had 5 steals to 1 for them, and 25 bench pts to their 6, fast break us 5 to 4, paint pts even at 28, second chance we win 8 to 5.
Against VCU there were complaints about turnovers in the 2nd half. We had 8 in the 1st half and led by 14. So by the time we got to 16 we should have led by 28 right? So the 2 extra cost us 43 pts.

Exact same thing I have yelled at the TV multiple times this year! Even had to explain to the Mrs the Princeton reference since she has heard it so much.

Fix the offense lmao. Sibert, Scoochie and Obi and any player with their skills are not joining the Flyers this season. This team was built for defense.

If the scoring on GW's part was low, it's only because the Flyers played out the shot clock so low on their possessions that GW didn't have enough possessions to score more. This defense let them shoot almost 50 percent and that shouldn't happen with a great shot blocker and the A10 defensive player of the year at the 4 and 5 positions. GW was 20 for 37 from inside the arc. They were also 21-26 from the FT line and from what I remember from watching, most of the fouls came inside the paint also. Fix the inside defense and this team will win in low scoring games.

This team is going to continue to put up stinking offensive numbers every few games at least, as they have all year. It was built for defense and if we can't get that, it's over.

Not today. He was torched so many times I thought he was going to spontaneously combust. He can definitely play great D, but it's occasionally and not habitual.

GW basically UNLV/Harkless'd us.to death with dribble drive. OLE'!!

Where in the rules of basketball does it say you can not have both a good D, and at least an NCAA average or better O????

It took Dayton over 36 minutes to score 50 points against the 292nd defense in the country.

I think you're off here. This team wasn't built for defense. It just happens they are better at defense than offense.

Watch these guys shoot in pregame. They don't miss. We have great athletes. It doesn't translate to the offense. The half court offense isn't good. It's BG esque.

I don't want to hear another word about how highly touted a recruit is unless AG gets it to translate into results. If I get all the resources and personnel at work and I am not successful it's me.

It doesn't. But this team does not have a good offense, they didn't last year either. This team has too much hot and cold and nobody you can count on game in and game out. Elvis, Mali, Mike, RJ, Brea, Mustapha, Camara and DaRon. The only two of the above that at any point you could count on for points game in and game out would be 1 of Camara or DaRon. There no consistency of FG shooters on this team. I thought there was until DaRon went right down the crapper the past 3 games.

Defense is all we can hope for an identity from this team. Hope, not expect.

Stagnate offense. No movement away from the ball. Speed it up, create more possessions as yes we do indeed have the athletes and ability to score if not hampered by slow painful pace we play at.

I don't want to hear another word about how highly touted a recruit is unless AG gets it to translate into results. If I get all the resources and personnel at work and I am not successful it's me.
I really don't buy this post one bit. 4 of the expected 5 starters were supposed to be defensive stars with the hope that their offense would improve enough to make them one of the hardest teams to beat. Mali, RJ, DaRon and Camara, each having their strong attributes to be something other than scoring. DaRon's blocking of shots, Camara's rebounding and blocking of shots, Mali's pesky defense causing lots of turnovers. Those were the strong points of each. RJ goes without saying. Only Elvis was expected to be better on the offensive end than on the defense.

And then there's Grant, who's known to be more like Gregory than Miller where defense comes first and foremost and their offense is usually painful to watch.

Let me put it this way. Name me former flyers that were better defensively: at the 1 position than Mali, at the 3 position than RJ, at the 4 than Camara and at the 5 than Holmes. Geez, put Kyle Davis at the 2 and you have the 5 greatest individual defensive Flyers lineup of all time.

Also, your point about the way they shoot pre-game is the most irrelevant statement you've made. I know of a lot NFL running backs that can take the ball from one endzone to the other when nobody's trying to stop them. But boy, as soon as you put 11 defensive players on the field, they for some reason can't do it? Hmmm, why's that?

On multiple occasions, I saw Mongolian Mike with the ball and only one player to beat with a clear path to the basket. Instead of using his height to take his opponent to the rim; he passed the ball. Mike is playing to not make mistakes instead of playing aggressively.

has disappeared because the opposing coaches have taken it away from Dayton. CAG tolerates his team taking bad shots instead of pounding the ball to the post before an errant trey is taken.

Smitty...take this into consideration. This is what I'm getting at. We are square peg round hole on offense a good portion of the time.

We will not win when it counts if when Daron is shut down there is no production. You can't just hope to stop the other guy, you have to be able to score.

To some extent. And while DaRon's current funk makes your point stand out like a sore thumb, I'm finding the ease at which our opponents are pushing them around on the other side of the court the most shocking(scoring and offensive rebounding). I really pictured us more like those Tony Bennett Virginia teams that won an awful lot of low scoring games and a national championship with a suffocating defense and an inconsistent offense(with the hope that our offense would be better than that).

It has a heck of a lot to do with our terrible outside shooting. This is not a good offense for many reason. This should be a great defense which it's shown quite a few times, but it's the inconsistency on that side of the ball, especially lately, that's puzzling.

First off, UD is just an adequate team and let's not lose sight of that. Even really really good teams go on the road and lay an egg. Yesterday's loss was a true combination of offense and defense. GW had at least two, and I believe three dribble drives, buckets to the hoop from at least 25 to 30 ft. out and not one UD player helped or stepped in to pickup the ball handler. That irked me more than anything and is uncalled for especially from a team that prides itself on its defense. GW had a very athletic back court that could shoot the ball off the dribble drive. I'm not sure we have seen a back court do that to us all year.

Also this was the second straight game we got beat on the boards and I'm not sure we've lost a rebounding battle all year long up to the last couple games. Bottom line for me is teams are doubling down when we throw it into the post now and we just didn't have guys that could make enough shots on the kickouts or create their own shots on defensive closeouts by GW. We had several wide open looks yesterday but those shots were missed and we don't have a catch and dribble guy that can pump fake, put it on the deck and get an open shot.

The scary part of yesterday was that we had our season low in turnovers and probably shot our best percentage from the free-throw line. Had UD committed their normal allotment of turnovers and shot their normal free throw percentage, GW would have put 90 points on the board.Again, it was a true team defeat yesterday and if we hit just a couple more shots, grab a couple more rebounds and defend the dribble drive better just a few more times then they have a good chance of winning that game. Again, a defeat on both ends of the floor.

I do not know about yesterday as I was not in DC at the game, but watch Grant at the arena and the number of times he gives Mike the slow down / stop sign.

False. Elvis is not a good defender. Never has been. Get's beat off the dribble noon stop. Mali is much better at D than Elvis.....not even close.

I was at the game in DC yesterday. Good UD crowd but better GW atmosphere. First 5 minutes of second half Mike played faster, penetrated, dished, and took shots over smaller defender. He also hit a three. Others had urgency too. After that, not so much. Later in the half we slowed it everytime and always looked to sideline for direction. At one point AG was calling something and motioning players where to go? With 5 to go even Mali walked it up and looked over to the bench. It was like we were tied or up a few instead of down ten. Seemed like no situational awareness.

Your observations are telling, and this is what I saw happening over and over. You have to teach the players in practice, but once the game starts you have to let them play and get in their zone. It appears that the coaching staff trying to be control freaks have harmed our flow.

What has happened to Mike, to Amzil, to Brea, to Blakney and now to Holmes? They look tentative as they wait for guidance. In a game leadership has to come on the floor, not from the coaching staff.

So I assume that the Flyers game looked really terrible in person or on TV. All I know is it sounded really bad over the RADIO.

I turned it off and missed the effort to comeback in the last 5 minutes (?) of the game.

From the boxscore it looked like we out-scored GW by 7 in the 2nd half. We were taken to the cleaners in the first half.

Not sure this team (in my mind going back to LAST year) as constituted has played in very many games with both half's been consistent from start to finish. Not sure why but it really has been the compelling issue for far too many games.

Elvis is a horrible defender. I blame it on coaching and the offense. Slowing it down is stupid, silly and boring

Despite how "bad" we played, it was a fun college basketball game to watch in person. From the opening play where GW took it the length and started the game with a slam dunk to UD trying to fight back for 40 minutes with GW hitting almost every free throw to the end. Give credit to GW, their small version of "Red Scare" were lowd not to mention their 30 some cheerleaders and dancers who took the court every stop in action. Finally, with 8 minutes or less to go, all UD needed was to hit a key three to cut it to 5 to really change the game. Noone ever did. We didnt have anyone who hit that shot. Meanwhile, the GW guards (Bishop and Adams) played free all game with no thought needed to either hit a shot or take it to the hole. Final observations, Mali did defend and at least was in the guards grill near the end with no hesitations. Kobe looked more tentative on the knee, but understandably it was his first time back in real action.

Maybe we should allow our players to play more free...

I agree. I believe that the coaching staff has told Mike (and Mali) to bring up the ball slowly and the first thing to do is look to see if Holmes is open inside and get the ball into him. This slows down the offense. Instead they should bring the ball up quickly and penetrate clear to the basket where a little shovel pass to either DaRon or Camara would convert to an easy basket or lay it in if they beat their man. When I am at the games Holmes and Camara are constantly at the top of the key and the temptation is always there to shoot. I like when Camara goes inside and attacks the basket! We just need to speed the offense up.

The reason Coach slows Mike down is to keep the turnovers down, which is a good thing. The problem is that in the half court set, we don't have a good dribble driver, or a give me the ball guy like Bishop from GW. When our low post game is not on, our big guys must kick it out quicker, and we must take the initial or the second pass and take advantage of the double/triple team down low on our bigs. We haven't been individually offensive minded because we aren't good ball handlers.

Mike and Mali are both good dribble drivers and ball handlers. Mike makes turnovers because he picks up his dribble when he doesn't need to. When he is standing still he oftentimes doesn't put enough pace on his passes and that causes turnovers. This is true of almost the whole team. My sons select soccer coach used to call a slow lazy pass a hospital pass. In other words it was easy to steal because the soccer ball has no pace on it and the same could be said for a basketball pass. If Toumani's slow bounce pass to Mike's feet which resulted in a critical turnover at the end of the VCU game was a chest pass with some speed on it we may have had a different outcome.

At one point AG was calling something and motioning players where to go? With 5 to go even Mali walked it up and looked over to the bench. It was like we were tied or up a few instead of down ten. Seemed like no situational awareness.
This concerns me as much as anything regarding the program, as it reminds me of the BG years. The players donít understand what to do, and the coach(es) try to dictate every offensive set on every possession, as if the players are marionettes. Maybe some of that is a side effect of ďpositionlessĒ basketball? Dunno. But when Iíve seen our Flyers at their best offensively over the years, our players are attuned to the game situation, and they play accordingly. They donít have to look to the bench on every trip downcourt to see what play to run, because they already know what to do. This team obviously doesnít know, and thatís a concern.

Totally agree that Blakney is a hot/cold defender. I think there seems to be a quickness threshhold for our opposing guards. Some are just too quick for him. The ones he seems able to contain are those that are predominately outside shooters and not quite so quick, where he doesn't have to worry about getting beat to the basket. GW guards were too quick for him and also able to hit the trey if he dropped back a little. RJ is good but not great. Ditto for Camara.
