Ugh I thouhgt this was going to be a great day when we start off up 18-2. First off Peyton Siva
and Chane Behanan
I really like you guys, but when you shoot about 19% from the three point line an teams are leaving you wide open don't shoot the ball. Listen I get it were going to lose some games on the road, but when your up 18-2 you have to close the deal. After the 18-2 start Louisville then lost to Marquette 72-45! That is a joke that is pretty much providence all over again if you take out the first 6 mmiutes. That for one shows Rick didn't make adjustments and two the guys played awful. Peyton Siva right now is awful! I mean AWFUL! Peyton Siva is probably my favorite player on the team but offensively is completely useless. The deffense is backing up 5 feet taking away his driving lane so he either drives into lane an gets doubled an has nowhere to go or he shoots the shot and misses it. The only bright spot is Chane Behanan I don't understand why he doesn't get the ball more down in the post he got a lot of rebounds today and made some really nice moves on offense. The main issue I have with this team is Rick Pitino and his coaching. When you start off 18-2 by running and getting wide open 3's why stop? Last time I checked it was still legal to run after a make or off a rebound. Also the weird substitions? Putting in Nunez in after not playing him against Depaul, Having Swop play a lot after hardly playing against Depaul it doesn't make sense. The 2-3 zone was the worst the defense was getting picked apart over and over again for wide open threes and he wouldn't switch to man. The Cards play Pitt on saturday they are 0-5 in conference that is an absoulete must win.
Get on Da Train and Go Cards!
