Agreed 100%. This team has looked out of sorts on offense multiple times this year. Superior talent got them through in much of the the non-conference slate. Hot shooting a couple of other times. Out working the other team worked a couple of times. Teddy Allen one on one moves helped. But they just don’t move the ball and themselves effectively much of the time. Even on defense they don’t play as well together as last year. JC and Sags are superior defensive talents. Miles is aggressive and knows where to be. The rest seem a step out of place. They come at the wrong angle. Trap in the wrong place or a step slow. It’s not an effort thing, but this is over all a young team that hasn’t quite figured it out yet.January 16, 2018 at 1:11 pm #46820
Ball movement, passing game and back door cuts of the Beilein era are gone. Some has to do with the players we recruit. Some has to do with the style of play. Much has to do with the very young team. With only 2 SR’s and 1 JR (not counting Hunter in this) that has not played for 1/2 of the year, this team is lacking in experience.
Think of this. SO’s — Sags played minimal last year and is counted on for major mins at C. Bender played even less and was a SF all his life. Harris didn’t play at all last year in JC and is new to Huggs system. Harler and Bolden played sparingly last year. Routt is really a walk on that got few mins last year. West is the only one that played significant minutes …. that is if you call 11 min/gm significant.
That’s the whole team. 2 SR’s that started every game for years. 1 JR that is very good but is just now inserted into the lineup after sitting out 16 games. 1 SO that had played 11 min/gm. 6 SO’s that saw little meaningful action last year as FR. And a true FR that is talented but in the dog house for unknown reasons.
This team is VERY YOUNG and inexperienced.
