    A lost art; the entry pass

    Is there anyone on our team who can throw a decent pass? I think Staiger would be our best option, but he is usually running the baseline in our offense so he rarely gets the opportunity. We missed Brackins many times in the post yesterday, and most of the time when we did throw the pass, it was terrible. We had the same problem last season getting it in to Jiri. Greg needs to work on this in practice, identify who can actually do it, and put that person in position to throw the ball inside to Brackins.

    Re: A lost art; the entry pass

    I agree that Lucca is pretty good at feeding Brackins from the wing, but he just doesn't get the ball down there that often (usually when he does it's for an open shot). Both he and Petey have a good, low entry pass, but I definitely haven't been seeing it as often as we did at the beginning of the season. I don't know if it's because of improved post defense or maybe we're just not taking the time to look at all options as we're moving around the perimeter. I will say this...Lucca has mastered the art of the fake pass; if he continues to use that it should help him get the ball into the lane more often.

    There were some great plays to get Brackins wide open underneath last night. There were numerous different plays run out of the same set. It makes it real difficult for other teams defensively.

    I think you will see a vast improvement in passing down low in the next few weeks. I have been impressed with a lot of the improvements in the team especially with Garrett and Brackins.

    Re: A lost art; the entry pass

    Lucca has a fast slider and curveball. Garrett is usually solid. Lets cut to the chase, im a big Eik fan, but last night he was way off his game for whatever reason. He played like a freshman playing in his 7th game in college.

    This is a bounce pass. This is a chest pass.

    Agreed.

    Lucca is probably our best and looks down low just about every time he gets the ball

    Eik was the worst last night. He will get better at it though

    Eik usually looks CB, CB, then his own shot, unless he's wide open. However, he's a freshman, and played like it last night.

    He seemed really rattled by the quickness of the Drake guards. We may not see any three quicker than Young, Parker and Stanley.

    Yeah, I'm sure Big XII guards won't be as quick as Missouri Valley guards! Don't get me wrong. Those guys were quick. But, I think you're dreaming if you think this is as tough as it's gonna get...

    This sounds exactly like football comments before and after we played Kent State with their quarterback and running back, calling them potentially the best (quickest?) duo we'd see all season. And then we started Big 12 play....

    I'm sure there will be guys as quick, but not three on the floor at the same time... That being said, I can't imagine there are many guys anywhere as quick as Stanley.

    Drake has good guards. Young could be a star in the Big 12.

    Just because they play in the MVC doesn't mean they can't be quick. That statement makes absolutely no sense. That's like saying teams will see a better shooter than Curry just because he plays in the southern conference

    I agree 100%. Drake's guards will be average in the Valley and the Clones will see better nearly every game in conference play. When CB draws the double and triple teams, the offensive spacing must adjust and send players toward the basket. Spotting up on the arc is fine for 1 guy but the entire team can't be spotted up out there if we can't drive past people. I would like to see a bit more emphasis on hitting the glass.

    Guards plural is a big problem. Young is a SOLID not SENSATIONAL Guard. Who are their other guards that everyone is in love with?????? I am anxiously awaiting this answer.
