Mercer 2/3

Postby boulder3m on Sat Feb 03, 2018 4:20 pm

Our team is on somewhat of a downer, coming off a loss to The Citadel and a lot of games with Cam either out or limited. It is time to turn that around and start building for the tournament.

Brooks with a hurt wrist from Thurs and wearing a brace. The announcers said he'll be re-evaluated back in Spartanburg.

Terriers up 26-24 at the half. Both teams shooting poorly. Seemingly tired. Fletcher has 11.

Past few games it seems that our defense is either non existent or poor. Offense is good but D is not. Although MY indicated on the post game interview that our O is the problem and D is fine. Shows you how much I know

We aren't playing well right now.

We aren't nearly as good as I thought we were two weeks ago.

Maybe it's because we've had a strong home schedule. We're still very young. Good teams are consistent at home and are able to win on the road. We haven't done the latter.

We have reverted back to where we were early in the season. No movement on offense or defense. Without movement on offense we become a one on one team, and we will lose at that! On defense we seem to make an attempt but without enthusiasm. The combination of having both bigs on the floor at the same time for some reason hasn't worked. Cam and Matt on their own have been fine, but together it bogs down. The guys without the ball have to do the nasty things that make a team go, and for now that isn't happening. Very honestly we haven't deserved to win these games. Our squad looks very ordinary right now.

Good points RT and Boulder. The other team’s D is making us work harder for a good shot than we make them; this was true especially in the second half, when they shot 62%. Increased intensity on D will feed our O.

Our ball movement is poor. Fletch is having a rough patch and not working for his shot and we also are not working the ball to get him and others shots.

Seems like the team is in a bit of a funk. Magee played hurt for several games, I think, and hasn't quite gotten his groove all the way back. Jackson is still getting back in the flow. Now Brooks is hurt. These are the kinds of things that I figure can throw a team out of rhythm.

Also, maybe teams are figuring out how to deal with Magee a little better. At the very least, they are really making him work really hard. Also, while I think having Stumpe in the starting line-up is great -- and he's such a good player -- it means the frontcourt is on the small side. That's bound to have some consequences.

I think if Jackson can get back to full strength and the offense can somewhat flow through him, then Wofford can hopefully get back to playing more dynamic offensively.

Good points Dude. We are not playing badly, by and large, but we are not playing as well as we have either; we must play well to win the tourney.
