    Plenty of praise for how Glover handled his minutes and the team this weekend, but you know what else happened when we finally pulled away in the 1st half?

    The OP/KB combo. I think we were up about 8pts w/11:00 to go when these two hit the floor, and it was 20+ 8:00 later.

    Not saying this alone made it happen - but I can't recall a time both were on the floor at same time and good things didn't happen.

    Both are more effective when they're on the floor together. Kerry brings the experience and knowing how to play the game, and covers up a lot of Omar's inexperience mistakes. Omar benefits by the attention defenders have to pay to Kerry, and is freer to use his sheer athleticism to make plays.

    They hang out on the baseline for spacing. We want a double-gap for driving the ball. The setup (for DDO) should have the 5 on the weakside low block (i.e. opposite to the side where the PG will make his initial penetration). The PG should get a layup or dump-off to the 5 for a layup or he kicks it out to the 2 guard (who rotates slightly to the top of the key) or to the corner where either now have a double-gap (made by the PG vacating his initial area on the drive) to drive to the basket.

    The graphic below shows NBA effective FG % by location of the shot (combined % off the dribble & catch/shoot, w/ C/S of course having a higher EFG%). We should be getting points off of penetration/dump-off layups, then by FT's from either of these two actions, then corner three's, then wing three's.

    When KB is at the 5 and is floating around the 3 point line we get dominated on the boards. Somewhere between coaching and skillset, that is a problem.

    I mean honestly, I am not suggesting the KB is a rock star. But you are out of your mind that he should be off the floor. Respect your posting history. But you are in outer Space.

    KB is an excellent defensive rebounder. He is tough to stop without fouling when he is isolated one on one down low. He is a great passing big man. He is our best player.

    I've got not problem being wrong. I just noticed what I thought was a trend when he hasn't been in the game.

    I did just go look up PER, for what that is worth, and KB is 4th in the SEC.

    I saw that we missed (didn't pass the ball) Lewis on a handful of occasions where he was creeping along the baseline to get in position for a possible backdoor alley-oop behind Vandy's zone defense. After the team gets a chance to review the game tape, I have a feeling we might see that pass made against a zone defense soon. :cool:

    From what I see, DDO requires a lot of communication & teamwork/feel for your teammates as well as the ability to drive (which, in thinking of last year's team we seemed to have little communication & a lot of 1:1). I hope it's starting to click & players will see Lewis, et al just before they come open as the possession unfolds.

    Earlier in the year, I faulted him for often being out of position but in the 2nd half of the year he's much better. KB leads the team in defensive rebounding % (how many they get while on the floor).
