Re: Belmont OVC semis game

It’s certainly early 4:39 left in first half), but this is the most aggressive defense I’ve seen Eastern play all year.
Gotta hit some shots!

Re: Belmont OVC semis game

We could play our A+ game and at least potentially still lose. Part of the problem I see it is that our success is often predicated on putting other teams in positions when they panic and make mistakes. Belmont just doesn't do that. They're so disciplined! This is a great point. I think we shot a b...

Re: Belmont OVC semis game

I would agree on defense. Less pressing and concentrate on half court. I don’t know how you change offense so drastically at this point and get the ball out of Brown’s hands. Even if you design it differently, Brown has to comply. I don’t see him doing that unless he’s on the bench. I think running ...

Re: Ovc tourney

First game all year where we only score in the 50’s and win. First game shooting 30% and win. Of course, out rebounded by 10 and they’ve won plenty of times where out rebounded. But the big stat was turnovers. Belmont will handle the ball better and not get turned over. I’ve been waiting for a hot s...

Re: Somebody needs to start a Murray State game thread ASAP

I agree on the lack of creativity on offense, especially down the stretch. Good teams know it’s coming and defend it. Since Brown isn’t going to pass, why not triple team him in the lane? I have some other questions on fundamentals - how do we go from out rebounding the top team in the conference by...

Re: Somebody needs to start a Murray State game thread ASAP

A very sloppy, poorly played half and we’re tied at halftime. Well, who knows what can happen in the next half.

Re: Somebody needs to start a Murray State game thread ASAP

I believe EKU matches up better with Murray than Belmont. Yep, no doubt. I’m more concerned with y’all Thursday night than I am Peay. We match up well with Peay and I’m fairly confident if we shoot close to our average we win. EKU on the other hand will be a problem for us. Our glaring weakness is ...

Re: BELMONT

And another observation. Belmont rebounds well because they want to. When a shot goes up, our guys stand around and their guys are moving, looking to get that ball.
Sheesh.

Re: BELMONT

Belmont is so good at knowing where their teammates are and finding them with crisp passes. None of their players tries to dribble into a triple team and pull a stupid little spin move, only to lose the ball. Eastern can be much sharper and handle the ball better in the second half and pull close. B...

Re: Tennessee State

Best half of basketball all year. 53-29 lead. Very aggressive in full court defense. Still too many quick shots and bad shots. How about the rebounding? 21-17 advantage at half. I know we’ve also turned them over a ton. But there’s a direct connection between out rebounding your opponent and winning...
