Re: Final: UCONN 67, Tulane 57

I think the coaches have a much better feel of the players abilities and who should get minutes and when they should get minutes. I don't try to think I know more than guys that have made a living in the game that I'm simply a fan of. Yes, we all have opinions, but sometimes when they come across a...

Re: Final: UCONN 67, Tulane 57

Same could be said for anyone posting any opinion here. So maybe you're on to part of the problem, some guys practice well but don't perform well in games. You're right I don't see practices and my opinions are based on repeated issues I see in games. I have praised MD for improving players individu...

Re: Final: UCONN 67, Tulane 57

It gets down to this. When we’re not shooting well we struggle with anyone. (See Nicholls St). Our inside game and penetration besides Frazier is not good enough to win in the AAC if our outside shooting is off. Teams have figured this weakness out and how to exploit it. The solution is to recruit ...

Re: Final: UCONN 67, Tulane 57

First basketball game I've made since Dunleavy has been the coach. 1. We have no inside game. We don't even want to try and draw the foul. 2. Defense 99% NEVER uses their hands. Get in the opponents face, make yourself taller, move them around, something. We just stare at the opponent. Both of thes...

Re: UCONN Game Thread

Same old story. Missing deep shots and yet we keep chucking it up. The fact that we're still in this game shows how far UConn has fallen. They've missed some embarrassing shots! Yep. Worst shooter on the team takes the most shots. We get an offensive rebound with 40 seconds left and with a use it o...

Re: UCONN Game Thread

Yet another lethargic first half with familiar recipe of bad defense and stagnant offense. And Daniels sees only 6 minutes.

Re: Memphis Beats Tulane 96-89

I also don't think last year's pre-conference season was much tougher than this year's. I guess it was the fact that 1/2 the teams were P5 teams that it appeared we had a much tougher schedule BUT in terms of RPI: 2016 St Johns ~ 2017 Miami OH 2016 Oklahoma ~ 2017 Colorado St. 2016 Mizzou ~ 2017 Fo...

Re: Memphis Beats Tulane 96-89

Yet you still cannot deny that we've almost doubled the win total from a year ago full season at the mid point of the current season. We have a shot at 20 wins, when was the last time you could say that about a Tulane basketball team? Yes, we'll need to win key games to get there, but the team is a...

Re: Memphis Game Thread

So Memphis is one the the worst shooting teams from 3 pt range AND we have absolutely struggled to keep them from driving the basket on nearly every possession, yet we stick with this porous man defense instead of trying something different like packing in a zone? Head scratcher.

Re: Chris Scelfo

Anyone can ask me questions about that season. Send me a message if you want. Seniors were very involved in most of the meetings with the coaches and decision making on the decisions we could make. I was part of that group and helped with the book. I chose to not be quoted though as I did not see a...

Re: Tulane gets measure of revenge over SMU 73-70

As it usually is. I said that when we got in . You and others insisted it would be much more than that. The reality is we can get to being competitive in this league quicker than most think. IMO a 3 bid year would be a huge disappointment for the league especially with the addition of WSU. It has s...

Re: Chris Scelfo

I don't understand the need to repeatedly bash Scelfo. I would have preferred Rich Rod, but that was no fault of Scelfos. I also knew that the punting on third down was a symptom of a coach that needed to be replaced. But Scelfo did a lot of good things at Tulane. He left and still is the second mo...

Re: Tulane gets measure of revenge over SMU 73-70

It is very evident from the individual improvements of Reynolds, Frazier, Paul, Ono Embo and even Ryan Smith last year that Mike Dunleavy is a really good fundamental shooting coach. No doubt that he's improved us in that regard and as a result it has improved us as a team this year. However, while ...

Re: SMU Game Thread

Reynolds played a great 2nd half. His baseline post-up was unstoppable for a stretch. FT shooting was key. Daniels was good again and needs to flip flop minutes with Cornish... He deserves a bigger role.
