Because of the late tip off last night I didn’t get to see the Oregon game. The other reason is that I absolutely detest the floor that they play on.
The previous Oregon State game displayed the growing problems that I see. Each time down the floor we would see OSU moving across the key hole around the baseline. It got pretty crowed down there at time that made defending them pretty difficult not the mention rebounding. The other advantage was that when things got busy they could tick the ball out the the three point line for an uncontested shot.
At the other end we would see the Utes standing around the three point line. While not stationary they were still pretty easy to guard. And, most to the time, they had a tough time getting a shot off.
There is an obvious maxim that it is easier to guard a player standing in one place . It is also easier to guard a dribbling player than a pass.
This is gong to be a long year if they don’t get these things fixed.
