I watched my recording of the entire first half and the first 6 or 7 minutes of the second half. That was all I could take. Not being able to find a box score to confirm my gut reactions, I will trust others to correct my errors.
Once again, we do not have anything that looks like a half-court offense. When the kids move, they don't look like they know where they are going and they are more likely to amble or lope than that are to sprint. They do not seem to know what they are supposed to be doing when they are not executing a half-court trap or fast break.
We desperately need Nick Jacobs to heal or for Moussa Gueye to find some talent because we have no presence underneath the basket on either end of the court. Jacobs' performance is excusable due to his nagging injury. Gueye apparently is exactly what he appears to be right now. To his credit, he appears to be playing to his potential. With all due respect to the coach and the team, we need a talent upgrade at that position. He cannot score nor can he defend on anything like a consistent basis. Jacobs is not well and Pollard does not have the body for the job.
When the three point shots do not fall and the other team does not turn it over, this team struggles to score. Even when the team defends well, it cannot rebound. Are Lacey and Cooper our leading rebounders? I would not be surprised to find out they were. None of this is acceptable. I am nowhere near ready to pull out the pitch forks and torches, but Coach Grant needs to put a more talented and better coached team on the court. I'm sure he is aware of that too. I hope he has a plan to accomplish both objectives.
