It was Goodin being his rouge, selfish self again. Steele's offense is eerily similar to Mack during the Tu-Lyon's tenure, where they basically dribbled around the perimeter for 25 seconds, then had someone chuck up a low percentge long three, or drive 3 on 1 in the lane. The team played great defense today, but I think the opponenet had somethimg to do with it. The offense was definitely better overall, except for the obligatory double digit low IQ shots, led by the ever delusional Goodin who still believes he channels Tre when shooting the ball.
Steele needs to have a "Come to Jesus" meeting with him soomer rather than later. Some of his tweets after the Maui tourney tells me he doesn't get the fan's critcism of his play.
why should he care about what criticism fans are giving him? you mean those people that sit at home on their couches and have never played a minute of basketball in their lives? those people? c'mon, man.
the only criticism that he should worry about is Coach Steele's, when he sits him down in the film room and breaks down the game, and shows him ways he can improve, which i'm sure happens with him and every other player.
in regards the offense - we moved the ball better PASSING last night than in Maui - the offense, for the most part, is not just DRIBBLING around. you could tell last night the focus was to swing the ball until we could get it into Tyrique or Hanky and we did a pretty good job of that. still too many zero or one pass possessions that aren't "in transition"m, though. those can get fixed,
defense and taking care of the ball was better, but when you play a team that doesn't really get out in the passing lanes/deny aggressively like Auburn/Illinois did, then you're probably not going to turn it over much. still don't like how many offensive rebounds we gave up and that we got outrebounded 41-33. that needs to change.
overall a nice game, though. our next two opponents are nice to have to work out some kinks in some things to prepare for UC.
let's hope they do that.
