    Run the floor; easy baskets

    When we are on our home court, and playing teams that play solid halfcourt defense like K-State, I think we need to push it up the floor off missed baskets. We have way too much trouble scoring out of the halfcourt offense. Plus, it gets the crowd into it. We need to find a way to get a few more easy baskets every game.

    I am getting tired of watching Taylor and McIntosh struggle to get the offense going; it's like watching a 3rd grade game...I have to turn my head sometimes...

    We can't push it because we don't even value the basketball enough to run our half court sets. Most of Taylor's turnovers happen when he's trying to run the floor and doesn't have numbers.

    Before we start mixing some run and gun in we need to take care of the ball MUCH better than we do now else the offense could look even worse.

    I agree. Taylor is way too loose with the ball in the open court. Today he only had success after the game was out of reach.
