Good win. Nice to see cash push into the lane so well and create for teammates. He's the unsung offensive hero. Gates was great, way to dunk away!
Perimeter D is bad. It's strange we're more athletic than last year but guard worse. Don't get it. But more appalling is our transition D. If we turn the ball over its automatic 2 the other way. No hustle there. Very strange for a Cronin team.
Why are we told to not judge Islam by the actions of a few extremists, but judge all gun owners by the actions of a few killers?
We're supposed to do business with a guy that can't even grow hair? Come on!

I think transition defense is the real problem. And its not just on turnovers. We give up a lot of run outs off misses that result in uncontested layups.
Intensity is the problem. You play defense with attitude and heart. when this team is motivated they are very good. When they aren't they look terrible. Everything about this team revolves around offense. Too often when shots aren't falling they hang their heads and stop playing D. They also play down to the teams they're playing. Elite teams do not do that. they have the talent but lack the heart. Gates and Dixon along with Cash and Parker need to lead this team and demand excellence on every single play. It was good to see Gates dunking on people. Toward the end of the game he reverted back and at one point had a guard on him and chose to shoot a jump shot instead of one dribble and slam.
I agree about cash being unsung hero and yancy dunking!! He actually tried to throw down on a few defenders last night which I don't really remember seeing him try in the past.
Their transition D is terrible. Nobody has a clue when to stop the ball. They try to stop the ball two feet from the basket which becomes an easy layup or dunk every time. To make matters worse they get caught in bad positions because of taking bad shots with their guards out of position or over jumping rebounds that they don't have a chance at.
