One Ray of Light from the UCSD Basketball Game
Great article, BP. Thank you.
Don’t mean to pile on Lars, but Fox is asking a lot of him…while the guy has undoubtedly improved since he first stepped foot on campus, he’s still not the most skilled offensive player. We’ve constantly lamented the lack of spacing in the Cal O, especially compared with other teams. Anything that opens things up would help.
No comments? I think it might feel pointless to comment on such a disaster. Hate to say it, as I appreciate your work, but it's not as though it is not possible to play effective offensive basketball...It is not as though some coaches do not know how to teach their players how to play offensive basketball...It's not as though there aren't books, and videos, of how to play effective offensive basketball. It's all the more pathetic that the team can sometimes, despite the lack of a plan, execute a play. Or that occasionally, a plan they have will work, one out of ten. Watching our Bears play basketball is much like watching kids play U6 soccer. Lots of energy, no plan. Lots of running around and moving the ball around, and no effective way to score.
