I agree that the double teaming was not working great. Running a second defender at Spangler is more about forcing turnovers and staying out of foul trouble, but it was too predictable today to work. They need to work at running defenders from different spots or delaying a little so the post player doesn't see it coming.
yes because you know so much more about bball than CF
Excellent contribution to the conversation. Can't people post their personal thoughts about our team without these sort of responses? We get it, none of us are Fred Hoiberg and don't know as much as he does.
I think Fred does this to protect the post players from foul trouble. It seemed we did less of it in the second half.
Yeah, you're probably right. I just don't know that a double was needed against OU. The way OU beats you is Spangler rebounding and Hield hitting 3s. Not that their other players aren't good, but if you stop Spangler on the boards and Hield from 3, it's an easy win. The last thing you do is double off of Hield....not that ISU did, they just got caught rotating. If we play them again, I'd like to see FH be a little more selective with the double...just don't do it every time. And if we're not in foul trouble in the second half, play them straight up. I think that Ejim and Niang can handle Spangler one on one if they can avoid fouling
