2010/2011 zags a true oxymoron


Disappointing - Success, is certainly an accurate description of  fan sentiment for this season's team. Why,  with such flashes of brilliance could this team not sustain it's performance ?  St. John's among other games during this season, certainly demonstrated what a remarkable team we could be.  Honestly  I can't say this season was not a success. We did rise from the ashes! We made a hell of a run but our brilliance was tarnished by dramatic  inexplicabe lapses in performance. At times, you could not believe it was the same team. Although, I don't think  the team's performance in the BYU game was without some distinction, our  first half  was not that bad and some of our runs, had you believe it could be done. Harris,Sacre and Steven had high double digits but without bench production and Carter a no show, BYU could not be handled.

The BYU game and the NCAA  tournament made the things, we have all known crystal clear, without an oustanding point guard, ferocious defense and  reliable somewhat  consistent three shooters, you can not win. It is true you live and die by the three but without it , you certainly die in the NCAA's. Rebounding, points  in the paint,  important, but without  the three you lose. If we had a  Ravio, Morrison, Dickau  etc. we'd be in  New  Orleans . On the otherside of the coin when the three's start raining from the other team, it not only stacks up the points but it serves to rattle and shell shock  the opposition. Clearly evident by our  t.o.'s ,missed and bad shots in the BYU game. How do you  protect from shell-shock? Maybe, the same way Mark Few brought the team back from the brink this season. Start a new ,take one game at a time, with out looking back. In the actual game, each play is brand new, one play at a time, the focus is on the play at hand , no looking back or focusing on the three that was just made  against you,  Each play is like a brand new  game, a fresh start.

ZAGS YOU GAVE US GREAT RIDE , WE CAN ONLY RISE FROM HERE !
