    McDermott's fault? Im not buying it

    Coach told Dendy to take the most insane shot in bb history? Also we have a All-American player. All-Americans dont need coaches in order to put the team on their back and find a way to win.

    Yes, it is McDermotts fault. Although he didn't tell dendy to shoot that terrible shot, this is his team. He is responsible for putting a winning team on the floor. Especially against UNI at home.

    Re: McDermott's fault? Im not buying it

    I agree and I don't. Coach Mac was beside himself when Dendy shot that. DG needs to quit being a scorer. He isn't. His job is to distribute. We need to quit releasing guards. Screw running. Rebound instead of taking off to the other end. McDermott had us a win for 39:20. Dendy's shot, and then the 3 in transition was the end of it for us.

    If Dendy takes that Shot on LE or TF's teams, he is probably physically pulled of the court by the coach while the game is still going, it just wouldn't happen. Coaches coach and players play, but players will adapt their play to coaches expectations when the consequences for poor execution outweigh the reward for a lucky shot here and there

    Re: McDermott's fault? Im not buying it

    A good coach can take a team with less talent and help them win.....so what do we call a coach that has talent and loses at home to a team that is over matched

    I'm glad DG scored tonight. No one else wanted to. Brackins has been a disappoint so far this season. He should never get outplayed by Egelseder!

    I was probably the biggest proponent on here for playing up tempo this year but its not going to work. We still don't have the guards to do it or the coaches to coach that style so we might as well scrap it. If we can't run on UNI and Northwestern I doubt it will be very effective in Big 12 play.

    Re: McDermott's fault? Im not buying it

    All I got to say is if Dendy holds onto the ball, we win the game. Does this have anything to do with Coach? Absolutely not. This is something that anybody playing basketball at this level should know.

    Thanks for starting this thread, its good to see that someone that hasn't completely jumped ship yet. Its still freaking DECEMBER! We can still have a great season. And who knows, mabye Northwestern and UNI will too. We just don't know because its DECEMBER.

    I'm not. His job isn't to score. Every team in the world will give him any 3 he wants to take, and nearly any jump shot he wants to take. He needs to be giving those 3s to 3 point shooters, and doing the rest of his work at the rim.

    Dendy: Ouch. Huge ouch. When your coach is screaming pull it out, do so.

    Why was Dendy even playing, Hamilton was playing well in the first half?

    Because Hamilton doesn't rebound or play defense.

    It can be done with this group. They can run and gun. Yet they must rebound.

    THAT SAID, you just don't pot shot it in the last five minutes. You go to your scorers. I still see few screens for Lucca.

    Had us a win??? I think you're new to Cyclone basketball.

    No, we don't need to quit running. We should have tried to push the tempo longer and harder vs. a team like UNI, but instead we pulled back and decided to play more conservative, bland pick and roll offense. This indecision regarding our style of play really hurt us. Have you noticed we have very little motion or cutting in the offense (attributable to the coach)? Have you noticed we rarely mix in different sets on defense (attributable to the coach)? Have you noticed players like Lucca and Christopherson don't cut to the hoop when Brackins is double-teamed and their defender has his back turned and is watching the ball? This should be fundamental, but instead McDermott would rather have our 3-point shooters stand around the arc while Brackins is double-teamed? Cut to the rim!! Move!!! His offense doesn't have enough motion.

    I doubt you've played much basketball over your life because the control freak of a coach that McDermott has shown to be with certain players causes players to play conservatively and go into a shell / comfort zone. When you're open, shoot!! Good teams have coaches who tell them this time and again to shoot and I have a feeling McDermott only tells a few of our players to shoot.

    Exactly. Hamilton didn't play well in the first half. He SCORED well in the first half. When you have a lead late in the game their are more important things than scoring. So many people can't see past that. They just assume that they know better than a coach that has lived and breathed the game of basketball his whole life

    Re: McDermott's fault? Im not buying it

    I know how important it is for point guards to be assist leaders, but really, they can score. It adds another dimension to the team. Magic was a prolific scorer from the position. Yes, Diante Garrett shouldn't be thinking score when he gets the ball, but he should take what the defense gives him.
