    Excellent article Efawcet7. Just seems like yesterday (Nov) I posted in one of our threads our lack of transition basketball. A team must learn to drive hard up the court every single possession and many times just wait for the rest of the offense to catch-up. It's a mindset that starts in the practice facility and transitions to the game. We don't really look like we practice transition offense. When is the last time a player gave the ball up before the free throw line? 2-1's and a 3-1 and we get no basket.

    Love AN but he is single defended and cannot beat a good defender one-on-one forcing us to rely on the pick. Early in the season our picks were outrageously bad but seem to be getting better. Can we not teach our players when moving off a pick your shoulder should brush the guy setting the pick. We let to many defenders go over the pick. C'mon that is basketball 101.

    Love gator basketball but we seem to be a team that doesn't know what we are.

    It is easier to teach a fast tempo team how to slow down then for a slow temp team to speed up. The best teams can do both. MW's strategy, to teach these young players how to slow down would be great, if he were guaranteed to have so many years with them. With the talent he has, some will test the draft and some will transfer because the offense doesn't suit them. This is why we have one of the highest transfer rates in the country.
