    When Arkansas really ramped up the pressure late in the game... did anyone else not love Nembhard being the one to inbound the ball? I'm guessing it's because he's the best passer on the team but it sure seemed like a struggle both getting the ball in and once we did. Wouldn't it make more sense to have someone else inbound the ball to Nembhard, who is several inches taller than Locke/Allen, and a significantly better ball handler?

    We had this same exact argument last year when Cheese was our inbounder. Your best passer needs to be the inbounder for several reasons. Both due to the ball needing to be delivered in a split second and at the right location/velocity for a running player to be able to handle cleanly.

    When you can run the baseline, I would go with the better passer making the inbounds pass. Now, if the player has to stay in one spot, the taller player might be better.

    Yep, agreed. Our other guys need to improve dramatically in their efforts to get open however.

    Good question.

    AN was in-bounding against pressure for a few reasons. First, he is the best passer and a sound decision maker. He also, as pg, likely has the best understanding of the offense and where guys are going and need to be .... putting him in a better position to read and make the needed pass.

    Also, against pressure . . . the ball very often goes right back to the in-bounder, as he will be closet to the receiver. And, of course, FLorida wanted him handling the ball against the pressure.

    Finally, the in-bounder is not going to be double teamed, for obvious reasons. . . whereas a player on the court may. And so if you want the ball to get back to AN, by having him in-bounding. . . you make it harder for the defense to deny him the second pass.

    Arky looked like they did under Nolan Richardson when they did that last night. If I'm Anderson, I'd be doing that all game. But he's not that smart.

    I've never been impressed with Anderson's coaching. Probably the worst in the SEC.

    Based on comments since Saturday, I thought we had the worst.

    Well, White WAS “the best” and we were all worried about his inevitable defection to Duke.
    But then he became “the worst”.
    This is quite complex and extremely fluid, and really... only @hatter18 can keep you informed of the minute-by-minute changes
    For example, only @hatter18 is qualified to remind you that White was once “in over his head recruiting”, “could not recruit at this level” and needed “and assistant with aau ties”.... but now is an excellent recruiter “who can’t coach offense” and instead needs that type of specialty assistant.

    It’s all very confusing to us laypersons.

    Well, AKA, pay attention and someday you too will learn the nuances of success at this level.

    Richardson ran "40 Minutes of Hell." His protege, Anderson, runs "14 Minutes of Heck."

    Anderson living off of Richardson's coattails.

    He did beat UK in the 2004 NCAA's Round of 32 when he was coaching UAB.
