Kudos to AG today !

He had the big kahuna’s to take JC and put him on the pine for the second half because he knew that needed to be done to have a chance to win the game

I find it amazing that the only thing you can post positive about the coach is in the context of a negative about a player. I wish you would go away.

Even stuck with it when the defensive rebounding went absent. Not an easy call but can’t second guess him here.

Agree. Great decisions by AG: (1) sick to gameplan to make Dukes hit 3s after 4/7 start, they went 4/21 the rest of the game; (2) sit Josh last 17 minutes. I would not have done it, but right decision; (3) made good decisions the last 5 minutes winning a close game.

Did we not see a " Changing of the guard " today? From Josh to Obi. I still think Josh has a lot of good ball left but , if you had a choice, ball in Obi's hands or Josh's. A well played and hard played game today.

Don’t read too much into Josh sitting. Anthony like many coaches looks at matchups and how players are playing. He sat Jordan down in the second half a few games ago.

Josh, like Obi gets a lot of attention. Sometimes, the worse you can do is try to fight through double teams.

I was more impressed that they came back from double digits. The players responded during a close game, whereas Dukes made some bad turnovers as well missed shots. UD clearly outplayed them the last 10 minutes and down the stretch.

From my chair it was matchups. We needed to speed the game up. Grant started Toppin the second half which he almost never does in terms of changing the lineup to start the 2nd half that started the 1st. With Toppin out there we had a big man that could run the floor. Mikesell, Crutch, Davis, Cohill gave us some quickness to try and get baskets in transition and Dwayne got 14 minutes today -- taking some from Mikesell and Landers since Frankie didnt play.

Josh was 1-6 from the floor but was crashing the glass. Dukes were quick and athletic and got off the floor fast. Perhaps not having him in there hurt us in giving up the 19 offensive rebounds, but I think it was the right call. Cunningham is still our horse.

Agree. And since these were coaching decisions, Grant earns credit for the adjustments. Coached us to a close game win, too. He still baffles me at times, but today AG earns a big pat on the back.

Agree it was a gutsy move and it worked.
Thought putting Jordan Davis on Carry in was a good move also.
Thought giving Cohill more minutes int he 2nd half gave us a lift on D & O.

I noticed Josh was not playing and just figured it was because Duquesne had his number and no answer for Toppin. Fine with me. Whatever works. It won't always be like that. If they start containing Obi, put Josh in. I don't like that it took so long to get the 3s falling, but it had to happen eventually. I

On another note, Grant bringing in the recruit for this game was huge. By far the best arena atmosphere all season. Can’t imagine many other official visits beating that.

My guess, in order, is B, A, C.
A) I think the Dukes got in his head today, with both the double-teams and the banging from a guy who was (1) as big and strong as him and (2) in the game solely (IMHO) to mess with him. You could see it in the way Josh, instead of attacking the defenders, was content to take step-back jumpers. That’s not what this team needs him to do at this time. And since he couldn’t get “his game” going against DU, Coach let him sit. It was more important for us today to stop the perimeter game and the dribble-drive, anyway.

B) I honestly don’t think he’s the same player since he broke his leg against Alabama 2 seasons ago. Whether it’s that, or whether it’s because his body’s not built to support the additional weight he’s gained (through muscle, obviously, but still...), he seems like he’s an “old” 23. He’s still better than 90% of the post players who’ve ever suited-up for UD, but I wonder if he isn’t breaking-down a bit from all the punishment.

C) Not sure what you mean here. Disturbed that his girlfriend isn’t nearby? Disturbed that a “kid” may be taking his place as the “bell cow” of the program? Disturbed that the coach who recruited him and most of the players who were here when he signed-on are gone? Not sure what you mean about him possibly having an emotional issue.

We are overthinking this deal with Josh. He is getting hammered without the ball, and teams are building a wall around him with beef when he does get the ball. He is being TRIPLE teamed by some opponents. I give him credit for letting his teammates play 4 on 2 or 3. That's what the Flyers have to address and deal with, not Josh. Obi is the wild card to make them pay. We should figure out how to get our guards going as well from 3pt.

I don't buy in to this "once burned, twice shy" thingy with Josh Cunningham. He is putting it in his teammate's lap to help solve it.

Many times Josh holds the ball too long when he is double teamed. He needs to get the ball out to the open man more quickly. (And we need to hit the shot.)

He had 3 points and 9 rebounds pretty early in the game. He was definitely putting work in but rest the team needs to learn to take the ball to the hoop a lot stronger. They need to be the ones to open it up for JC

I don't buy in to this "once burned, twice shy" thingy with Josh Cunningham. He is putting it in his teammate's lap to help solve it.
I think part of it today, early on, was that the stripes were letting the Dukes get away with any contact short of aggravated homicide. And Josh knows he can’t make shots with 3 guys hanging on him, and he believed (probably, justifiably) that the stripes wouldn’t call anything on Duquesne, so he resorted to step-back jumpers as the core of his game. Those weren’t falling, so on offense, he became a liability today. As a result, Coach went with Small Ball, and that proved to be today’s elixir. Tuesday? Lord only knows what will work.

This leads to one of the things I like best about Coach Grant. He puts players in the game, and takes players out of the game, according to the needs of the situation. There is no hard-and-fast rule that “Joe Blow always comes in at the under-12 timeout”. When a player is doing what the team needs him to do to get a win, he (generally) plays. When he’s not getting it done, he (generally) sits. That was the case today with our team captain and arguably one of the most vital cogs in the machine that is the 2018-19 Flyers. It was not “his day”, so he sat. But on Tuesday, he may play 35 minutes and garner a double-double. Again: Coach reads the situation and plays the guys who are getting the job done. I love that approach.

The bigger headline today is how Coach Dambrot clearly outcoached Anthony.
Dambrot is the best coach in the A10.

It's "cujones" not "kahunas" but that's neither here nor there.

The fact that you started a thread to compliment AG after the game thread MB Debby Downer nonsense posted by you and "daytonalltheway" during the tilt has me baffled.

BTW, daytonalltheway appears to have been put "back on the jet." His posts only appear when someone replied to him and the originals are gone.

Wasn't me as I don't have moderator privileges.

Josh is immediately getting double-teamed whenever he gets the ball. Every team is doing the same thing to him. He needs to kick the ball out for an open three or hit a cutter into the lane, preferably the latter given our inconsistent shooting.

The fact that you started a thread to compliment AG after the game thread MB Debby Downer nonsense posted by you and "daytonalltheway" during the tilt has me baffled.

BTW, daytonalltheway appears to have been put "back on the jet." His posts only appear when someone replied to him and the originals are gone.

Wasn't me as I don't have moderator privileges.
Agreed. Not unexpected from that crowd.

Eh - Flyers finally started making 3s, crowd got pumped. Credit to Toppin for playing all out and keeping Dayton in the game.

I like Coach Grant more than most posters here, as Dayton has top 60 KenPom Offense with 0 consistent outside shooters. Team shares the ball and gets good looks when they don’t turn it over. He’ll need to prove he can get a team to play physical defense though, hopefully we’ll see it next year with more talent and depth.

And I do not understand anyone being impressed with Dambrot today. Duquesne looked like they had just as much talent as Dayton. Posters here forget that Dayton currently has a roster of 2 star players, really only Cohill was highly touted. Duquesne showed no discipline - they celebrated after every tough shot like they won the game. And when they got up double digits, they let the Flyers back in with awful shot selection, jacking quick 3s

Edit: just researched, most of Dayton roster is 3 stars. Regardless, I don’t think Dayton is more talented than best teams in A10. Next year though, should have best overall roster if everyone stays with the transfers eligible

I watched the game in person and watched it on recording. I think that we just started to humm as a team without Josh in there and coach wanted to let that formula ride. Toppin almost took over the game.

1) Dambrot is a helluva coach. He's done wonders with the Dukes already.

2) if we're going to be spelling nits, it's cojones.

I was one of the folks who was tepid on the AG hire. Glad to have an alum prowling the sidelines, but the middling results at Alabama gave me pause.


I've moved to being very happy with the hire. Here's why:


1) As someone mentioned in the Archie Miller thread, there were some very glaring behavioral lapses among Archie's troops during almost his entire tenure. AG set the tone last year and there was a mass exodus of players not willing to toe the line on and off the court. What we have now is a bunch of guys who want to be here, who want to be student athletes, and who want to play for Grant.


2) I believe we are seeing the benefits of player development under Grant. At UF, Grant was credited with developing several big men (Udonis Haslem, Al Horford, Joakim Noah to name a few). Obi is a freakish athlete, but he's getting better by the game. I've got to believe we landed Jordy & Sissoko at least in part because of Grant's reputation developing big men.


3) Recruiting. We had no point guards on our roster when AG was hired. He pulled the proverbial rabbit out of the hat and landed Crutcher. Somehow, he found Obi. Last year sucked, but AG is building for the future. The transfers have been impressive and next year looks to be a monster. If AG has the enduring recruiting panache he's shown so far, the future looks very bright.


4) Coaching & execution. Is Grant the best in-game coach? Nope, he's done a few things that are head scratchers. However, he's shown an ability and willingness to change things up (zone defense, press) when the status quo isn't working. As udscott pointed out, sitting Josh was probably the key to the victory. Duquesne is a pretty darn good team with quickness and size. Obi was the right match up and he responded with a career high, as well as doing many other things that contributed to the victory.


We will lose more games this year. Grant will make mistakes. However, the trajectory is looking pretty good. I'm glad AG is our coach.

Duquesne could be a force over the next few years. They only played freshmen and sophomores today - no juniors or seniors. Dambrodt is a pretty darn good coach. He proved that at Akron. Zips got screwed over a couple of times for an at-large bid. If we do not hire Grant, Dambrodt might have been our coach.
At the end of the video Dambrodt says his team is like their coach - a bunch of guys Dayton did not recruit with a bit of a chip on their shoulders. Perhaps an oblique reference for him being skipped over for Grant?

Duquesne is going to be very good the next few years, just like UD. I know that the league had a bad non-conf result, but I have been impressed with the talent in the top half of the league. I watched some of VCU and George Mason tonight. I respect the physicality and talent of those teams. I have not seen Davidson and Rhode Island yet.

Have said it many times recently: I like how AG uses his players according to the flow of the game. Few, if any, “scripted” substitutions. Given, that may change a bit next year with a full, eligible roster. But I hope the overall “play the right lineup for the situation” mindset doesn’t change.

Since day one, Josh and the entire team has had a problem with big, athletic front lines. That Hughes is a nice player and he is quicker and more physical than Josh. In the past, we had no answer to these types of front-liners. That has changed with Obi. If the opponent's front line is just big, but not athletic, Josh can eat them alive. If the opponent's front line is big but athletic, Josh struggles. In fact, looking back over the last five years, this has been the case. Big, athletic front lines have always haunted the Flyers.

They won’t be your parents’ Duquesne for the next couple years, that’s for sure.

At initial glance, it appears Davidson and RI are led by all underclassmen.

SLU loses several players in Bess (their best player), Isabel, Foreman and Wiley, I believe.

I can’t recall what the recruiting class coming in looks like, but it appears they’ll take a step back.......and Travis Ford’s seat will start to get really warm. I expect this SLU team, with so many seniors in the rotation to somewhat right the ship in the February and contend for the Top 4 bye and fight like warriors in Brooklyn.

I think some people are reading far too much into Josh having a bad game. Changing of the guard?? C'mon man.

I think what AG saw was that Josh stands straight up and bulls you, which doesn't work when the other team simply has a superior shot blocker.

What does work? An athletic big who can match athleticism and draw fouls. That happened, and we won because we got that big guy in foul trouble.

I'm a bit surprised AG didn't sub Josh back in each time that big guy headed to the bench, but hey it worked.

One thing that I don't think has been mentioned yet is how the refs were calling the game. They were clearly letting them play. At one point the announcers mentioned it being called like a "tournament game."

Cunningham relies on initiating contact on the way to the rim. Sometimes he even goes out of his way to make sure the defender bodies him in order to get the call, even if this might mean missing the layup. This works great when the refs are calling all that contact, but when they are "letting them play," Josh struggles and gets into his own head. This is exactly what happened today. AG recognized it and made the proper adjustment. Onward.

Bigs are taught to place the defender on their hip. Once you have the defender on your hip, you got him.

Josh is an outstanding player, but is also a bit undersized as a 5. He relies on his skill, agility and strength. Sometimes, he just does not match up well, and... every A10 team keys on stopping him now.

He can STFU and mind his own business. I think he'd like to see him leave early.

I picked up attitude on that video, he said his players are just like their coach- none of them were recruited by Dayton. Seemed bitter.

Josh is going through a slump right now, but very soon you will see some gimmick defenses on Obi. When they do it and slow him down, Josh will step up and play like the stud senior he is. No A10 team can guard both of them, especially if we hit our average on threes.

Agree. And his statement isn't true. I know we recruited Frankie Hughes and pretty sure Sincere Carry also. He is the one who wasn't "recruited".

Dambrot is a good coach but he has some baggage (and attitude).

And he’s 60 years old and he has never won an NCAA Tournament game. A great hire for Duquesne, but not a good fit for UD.

Lighten up Francis, he's right and I didn't interpret his post as a negative jab on Josh. Josh was struggling and it was a wise coaching move to leave the team on the floor that was working even if it meant benching the lone scholarship senior.

It will still be weird when LeBron shows up to a Duquesne game.

We did offer Hughes. We, nor anyone in D1, offered Carry, due to his fragile knee(s), until Duquesne offered after his senior season. Just hard to believe, as the kid can play, even if he does not make it four years.

Obi is the wild card to make them pay. We should figure out how to get our guards going as well from 3pt.

I don't buy in to this "once burned, twice shy" thingy with Josh Cunningham. He is putting it in his teammate's lap to help solve it.
I'm doubling down on this post. Josh has to have more help and he sure didn't get it last night vs SLU.

Noticed that AG has the 2nd best Kenpom adjusted offense stat of his career right now at 45.

Only his 18 in his first year at VCU was better.

Might be changing his coaching approach/philosophy, we'll see. I am surprised. His adjusted defensive numbers have almost always been his strong suit.

Meanwhile, this is the 3rd worst adjusted defense stat of his career. Everything has sort of been flipped around vs. his normal stats.

With seven+ eligible players that need to log a lot of minutes and stay out of foul trouble, the defensive intensity should necessarily be ramped down. I'm inclined to give him a pass for this year. I do expect it to be significantly improved next year, though.

This is more of cherry picking numbers to match them up with narratives. 2015 UD ended the season with a shorter rotation and were 30th in KenPom defense.

I think its more of AG playing to the players' current strength. For instance, Obi has a lot of work to do on defense but is clearly already a highly polished offensive player (especially for the A10). Smart to play to this team's strength. I wish they got out and ran even more!

After the game at URI, I think we see the team get out a little more often on the break.

Getting out and running requires three things usually.
1. Getting a stop on defense
2. Getting the defensive rebound
3. An opponent who will not cede offensive rebounding to prevent a fast break.

Rick Majerus would send five players to the back court as soon as their shot went up to prevent BG teams from running a fast break. It worked well for him, because it stopped the run and forced UD to play half court offense.

Good point, Phi.

Whatever the analysis, there is no excuse for not having significantly improved defense next year.

Correct me if I am wrong, but haven't we improved significantly on defense this year compared to last? If that's true then I like the trend.

Oh, I agree it's better. It's not good enough for a top 25 team, which is my expectation for next year.

And dare I say for Anthony and his staff as well. Having coached for Billy Donovan, AG knows the end game for sure, and I'm even thinking top 10.

I'm a big believer in chemistry. Roles to a lesser extent.
I cant see how we aren't a Top 20 team next year.

With guys we keep PLUS sides we've already added via transfer... geesh! Happy times

I think Frankie would benefit. He would be required to play minutes, plus, there's less thinking involved when you're running. But AG knows what he sees in practice.

With a full and healthy team next year, I'd like us to revisit some trapping Havoc and changing of speeds. Next year we will have the horses in Chatman and Ibi and the bigs, and the Obiwan magic to do some great work

Yes, it could be...just looking at the numbers though, it was striking to me, going from his 1st to 2nd years at both VCU and Alabama, there was a strong defensive improvement and an offensive decline, sort of the opposite has happened this year so far, although UD's defensive numbers have also improved this year, but we were 43 in defense in Archie's last year and then declined to 238 in defense in AG's 1st year.

1st time in his career that he has had back-to-back Kenpom adjusted defensive ratings worse than 100...1st time in his career that his Kenpom offensive rating has improved from year 1 to year 2, year 2 has always been worse.

**** man, when he was in the SEC bama played weekly against the likes of Florida and Kentucky and 6 other stellar teams. Bama will always be in the bottom half of the SEC, just like Georgia Tech is in the bottom half of the ACC.

BAMA had no studs, Kenticky had 7 to 10 each year.
Very similar with Florida. All we need is for AG to return to achieving VCU like teams, and we ate golden. He is well on his way to winning more games and elevating this Program!

Had to clear out the riff raff first!

I believe kudo’s go to the assistant coaches as well, Grant made excellent choices and I believe this is the best group of assistants UD has had. Archie did not or could not hire great assistants.

It’s obvious that Grant is listening!

When Pete Strickland left Ollie recruiting took a step backwards...so shout out to the guys.

Very similar with Florida. All we need is for AG to return to achieving VCU like teams, and we ate golden. He is well on his way to winning more games and elevating this Program!

Had to clear out the riff raff first!
AG knows Dayton could...and should, dominate the A10. I mean, look around! I watched 3 minutes of Bonnies @ St Joes last night...unwatchable both from a basketball standpoint but also just the environment. Same for Davidson vs Fordham and every game that will be played tonight except VCU. It's us and VCU folks...that's it!
