    ninety four feet

    I was shocked today that we didn't try and make the game more of a full court game. We were facing a team with 2 freshman in the backcourt and we let it be a half court game. Straight half court man to man the whole game. Anyone else surprised by that?

    I think Fred said we didn't because of fouls.

    I'm not. Right now we have 1 guard to bring off the bench and two post players. We are trying to run on offense and I just don't think we have the numbers to press.

    JVB might have to take some Cato flops.

    Actually it's a little late. You must have missed the reaction to the UNI game.

    Re: ninety four feet

    We have no depth...Rumor has it Phillips is on the verge of going back to Wisconsin....McKnight is being unofficially redshirted....So we have 3 guys on the bench...all 3 never playing a D1 game until this year.....

    There were a few big reasons not to press:
    1. ISU isn't a deep team. We suited up 9 guys yesterday. Our second string consists of 3 freshman post guys and a RS freshman walk-on guard.
    2. Garrett is long, but I wouldn't say he is overly quick in the fullcourt. Not sure he's the kind of PG to force turnovers in the FC press.
    3. California might have had 2 freshman at guard, but Guitierez(sp) was pretty quick and long. IMO he would have shredded any press we attempted.
    I'm more surprised that we continued to double-down in the post 100% of the time and that we haven't tried the zone to change things up against Cal or UNI when they got hot.

    No, I was not surprised. We can't press much, the depth is not there to do it for a whole game, or even part of a game.
