    2 for 1 possession?

    Ok this is really my first real criticism of CFH. But why wouldn't you try to get a 2 to 1 possession with 46 secs left in the game? You have a good six or seven seconds to work with.

    Re: 2 for 1 possession?

    because we had the lead. why would you want to give the opposing team more time?

    Re: 2 for 1 possession?

    With the lead you want two rushed possessions of under 6 seconds?

    Instead of one rushed shot under six seconds. Yeah I would. Plus no guarantee the second possession would only be six seconds. Even so six seconds is better then the 2.6 we had.

    He has a point. We make our only possession with a lot of time just six seconds by standing at half-court instead of running an offense.

    Re: 2 for 1 possession?

    There was time to run for two possessions on our part, but we went to the looser strategy and let them back into the game. Still think put the ball in SCs hands and he can pass to DG for a shot. If this happens one more time and we lose, we just frittered away the NCAA/NIT/CBA trying to prove that the DG 1 on 4 works. I think CFDHG went one more time to well to let DG prove that he could make the shot in front of the home crowd. It does not work in the Big 12 in the last minute. The missed SC shot did not help either. The Bubu cramp did not help.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    No. This is rediculous. With lead, you limit the amount of time and possessions for the opposing team. Trailing, you want to lengthen the game and get more possessions.

    We had the lead. No way would you give them a full 35 seconds to run a play, or a couple plays, or have a chance at offensive boards.

    If we were down by one, yes, then play for a two for one.

    Quick or hasty, your call.
    The more possessions there are, the greater the chance we lose.

    Given what we have seen, what indications do you have that having more possessions when we have the lead would be better? The mistakes we are making would propagate enough to offset any advantage.

    This is basketball common sense. You give the opposing team the least amount of time to score. With 15 seconds, they are going to have to take a shot on their first look whether its a good look or not. You give them 35 seconds...well heck, now they can potentially have 5 or 6 different looks and opportunities at offensive boards, your defense has to play balls to the wall for a full 35 seconds, you cannot foul in that 35 seconds, etc.

    Get it yet?

    Re: 2 for 1 possession?

    What I do get is DG 1 on 4 missed shot and Pullen, preseason Big 12 player of the year, ended up with a made layup. Game Over!

    Re: 2 for 1 possession?

    The first thing that comes to mind is....we are a poor rebounding team, if we take a quick shot there's no guarantee we'll get the ball back.

    The real screw up: Last play throw the ball to half court call a timeout.

    Reset - run a good play with two seconds left.

    Ran it perfect, just forgot the timeout.

    Absolutely. Running down the clock hasn't been working, so get a quick shot. Then, if necessary, foul KSU, you get the ball back at worst down one with a chance at the winning shot. The coaches need to use some imagination.
