Re: UVM @ Northeastern 11/17

[QUOTE=uvm4life20;6984498][QUOTE=UVM Hoop Cat;6984444]I'm not worried about our perimeter D relative to last year at all. As Alumni96 pointed out, our best defensive player on the perimeter or interior by a lot last year was Brian Voelkel, and he's back this season.

Motivated/wanting to be there Brendan Bald was a huge loss, Brendan Bald 2011-12 when his shots weren't falling is no loss at all. Which is sad but true.

I'm sorry but you are wrong. Bald shut down partin, mclemore, and aronhalt last year. He was not far off from being on the all defensive team. Voelkel was not the best defensive player by a lot. Lucky for us this year though we don't have to play partin, aronhalt, and mclemore.

Someone pointed out bald being able to guard the best player 1-3 but we didnt have him guard the best offensive player every night last year. WE had Voelkel to guard the best player if he was a SF and we didnt really have bald guard the pg either.

Bald is a huge loss to the perimeter defense. I think Bald lack of love for the game showed up on the offensive end more last year. His shot showed he didn't really work on it in the offseason or his game in general. His d though was still good last year and he made the best sg in the AE have bad games.
Not wrong at all- Right.

You and I have a very different definition of "shut down" because in no way did Bald shut down Partin, Aronhalt, or McLemore last season. McLemore averaged 17ppg on greater than 40% FG and played his best games against UVM in his 4 year career last season, Aronhalt we only faced once and he scored in double figures- and Voelkel covered Suero who was far more dangerous, and Partin was a a volume shooter but he still got his against us and almost shot BU back into the second game.

Additionally, Bald went from DPOY the year before to not even making All-Defensive team. Voelkel was given All-Defensive team, because he was by far our best player defensively last season. It was obvious to everyone, fans, players, and apparently also coaches.

Bald was still an above average defensive player, don't get me wrong- and he was asked to cover a lot of tough scorers- but he was nothing close to the same lock-down defender he was in 2010-11.

Not only did his offense regress last season but his defense along with it. Hey, I wish he was still part of the team and was committed to having a bounce back senior year- but if it's not meant to be, then it's not meant to be. I'm happier Trey Blue is in the mix right now.

Sandro's ball handling skills from where it was as a freshman is almost as impressive as the leap in development Clancy Rugg has made.

Really athletic guards used to give him some trouble, but not anymore. Carissimo has the ball on a string now.

Re: UVM @ Northeastern 11/17

Josh Elbaum is a terrific perimeter defender as well, and doesn't get nearly enough recognition for it.

I think we need to give the coaching staff some credit when we see players make significant improvement in their skills over a relative short span of just a couple of years. Certainly, Sandro and Clancy are 2 recent examples but there are many examples from the past dozen or so years.

Re: UVM @ Northeastern 11/17

last year against us
mclemore was 13-30 17ppg. He did play better than usual against us. I agree with that.
Partin 13-38 7 to's. Bald was absolutely hounding him and held him to almost 33% shooting. I know 1 of the games the points did not come against bald. Partin scored but if he wants to shoot and miss every time than Bald is doing his job contesting shots and tiring him out just to get open. That kind of defense wears on a jump shooters legs.
Aronhalt 4-13 4 to's. I watched the game and I remember Aronhalt scoring maybe 1 basket against bald. Those makes were against the other guys guarding him.

He did shut down partin and Aronhalt. Mclemore he didn't but still played good d. I think Bald was prolly 6th or 7th in best defensive players last year and just missed the all defensive team. Voelkel was the best defender last year but it was no where near a big of gap as you let on. He also was far off from the defender he was the year before. You can look at the stats but they dont show who was guarding who when the baskets were made.

You think Voelkel was light years ahead of bald defensively last year. I couldnt disagree more. I will agree though that playing time, offensive struggles, and lack of love for the game last year did affect bald. I think those mental problems affect the offensive end more because on defense you just need to hustle more than be mentally in it. Bald did not lack effort last year he lacked focus

6'10'' Mitch McGary averaging 6pts 8 boards for #5 Michigan

6'8'' Jakarr Sampson averaging 8 points 8 boards a game for St. Johns

6'9'' Jalen Reynolds- Xaviers (Ineligible 2012-13)
