I love basketball, I played basketball and I still shoot some every now and then so I’m not just a football only fan, but the fact that NO ONE on this team can shoot the damn ball is baffling. The first 15 minutes was just so aggravating I couldn’t watch anymore.
I’m not sure what the answer is except maybe they’re so focused on trying to get the ball inside that everyone’s tight and scared to shoot resulting in BAD misses. They may be over-thinking things on offense. The purpose of half-court offense is to create a good shot/scoring opportunity for someone whether it’s down low or downtown. If you have an open look-SHOOT IT!
We got a 4 or 5-star 2-time Mr. Basketball on our team that averaged 30-whatever points a game in HS that was supposed to give us an outside threat but you wouldn’t know it from watching the games. He just blends in with the rest of ‘em. This guy needs to be taking WAY more shots. Let Releford and Eblen run the offense and give Lacey some catch and shoot opportunities and maybe he’ll get hot. He may go 1-15, but if we’re only scoring 50 points a game anyway, so what? Give him a chance.
If we’re going to lose, we may as well go down guns blazing.
(Maybe I DO know what the answer is : ) .....but if anyone would like to chime in on how Coach Grant could jump-start this offense or just vent a little, this is as good a place as any.)
