    Half Court Offense

    Its been discussed on here before, but our half court offense is hard to watch. Can we get one decent shot out of a half court set? There's no ball movement and we almost always end up with a contested 18 ft shot or a force by CB in the paint. The only time we have any flow on offense is when we are in transition. It is just very hard to watch.

    Re: Half Court Offense

    There's no ball movement to moving players. The ball moves, but the guy it moves to isn't open, since there's so little movement.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Yeah I don't like the way it is working. I thought this was something the coaches would work on?!?!?!

    No kidding. It's going to be up and down all year. If our 3's arent dropping, we are in deep trouble.

    I wonder what they see when they watch game film? Certainly we are trying to do something right? If we could only call a timeout every possesion to "draw up a play" we might have a chance. How can they be so clueless out there?

    The only half court offense we run is the on ball screen by hamilton which is useless and then pass it to Brackins.

    Ya you're right. We shouldn't be getting negative about something when there isn't anything to be negative about.

    Right. This was a moral victory as were on ESPNU and we only lost by 20 on the road to a team that had just lost. We lose by 20 all the time on the road in football.
