    • Crap shoot especially if IB remains as HC. I'll say it again. Hope KP and CP stay.
      After that I'd go with RC, DD and MU.

        I can't think of anyone who I'd be 100% sure comes back next year.

        • For next year...if we could work the portal to get 2 starting guards with proven shooting accuracy and a legit AAC level power forward to go along with a bulked up Kenny Photo we may be able to...wait...ahh forgedda-bout-it.

          • I don’t get why IB thinks we can run the ball screen offense when, Mo can’t roll, Tyson won’t pass the ball. If we run that offense with Pohto he can pop and shoot the 3. No chance the ball screen works with MO and Tyson. Today that offense the last 4 minutes cost us dearly. Should have stayed in motion offense.

              It doesn’t work because Mo won’t roll. He hesitates after the screen.

              Inevitably Tyson is doubled, Mo should be open but the spacing sucks; therefore, Tyson can’t burn the double team with a pass to Mo…. Furthermore none of the help defenders are required to tag Mo which leaves the perimeter options blanketed… Basically none of the concepts that should make a pick and roll work come to fruition.

              • I thought we played good basketball in the first half against Tulane and for nearly 3/4ths of this game. I believe we win both games with a full roster. So there are little sparks that might be growing into something.

                BUT…….

                After someone on here mentioned our body language during timeouts, I focused on that and was mortified by what I saw.

                The coaches repeatedly spent the whole time-out in a coaches only huddle out on the court while the players just sat many feet away. At one point ETN even grabbed a clipboard and started drawing up something and trying to pump up the team.

                The buzzer sounded and the coaching huddle broke and each coach went to a player to talk to them. It was obvious the players didn’t understand as they walked out of the timeout. This happened over and over. WHAT THE HELL????

                This isn’t a GD Democratic process. We need a leader who knows what they want to do and looks each player in the eye to make sure they understand.

                This is why we lost. Cinci executed their sets out of timeouts. We were lost and other then the Dex 3 attempt, we bumbled away each opportunity.

                We were out-coached when it mattered the most.

                • Oh and Monzy spent those timeouts eyeball measuring how many dance team members he might be able to fit on his futon…for movie night.

                    That's what happens with "player disconnect". Consider me as worried about Monzy and Pohto being here for next year.

                    • Monzy is getting screwed

                      • Here's a quote from Etienne after the game. It doesn't seem to occur to him that if the opponents are making it difficult for him, they're making it easier for somebody else.

                        “Anybody in my situation knows I’m not going to get clean looks,” Etienne said. “I’m going to have to take contested shots because those are the options I’m getting. That’s the whole objective of the scouting report is to make sure I don’t get anything easy. I made some tough shots and I missed some down the stretch, but I felt like for the most part I did well on my tough shots. I don’t really expect to get anything easy. That’s just the nature of being who I am.”

                        • “It means that we did take higher percentage shots, being that they were more two-pointers than three-pointers,” Etienne said. “I still think that we’re a good shooting team and we need to shoot threes more.”

                            I probably need to watch the tape, but during the last few minutes I thought our spacing generally sucked on the PnR’s. Mo didn’t pop or roll. Therefore TE was doubled… and Mo didn’t create a Help the Helper situation which leaves everyone else covered.

                            • But KP can with a step back open three.

                                The PnR would have worked better with KP.
