It was pretty clear they hadn't worked on it as much as their man-to-man pressure D. Guys weren't taking good position as the ball swung around. But even then, I'm surprised they didn't throw it out there during the big first half run just to see if it would throw us off.I'm surprised more zone wasn't used by La Salle, however you could tell their guys weren't comfortable with that set on defense. Hopefully Braswell can get on track tomorrow, he's been inconsistent to this point.
Charlotte does not have a ton of height, but they have quite a few that like to mix it up under the basket (4 play inside). And 3 of the 5 guards are slashers.URI typically plays man and goes to zone in certain situations typically against 2 big men
It was actually unseasonably warm in RI today at about 50 degrees.It was an ugly game, but ugly games seem to favor us this year. Nice Rams arena but either the weather was really pretty up there, something else big was going on, or people just do not care about the Rams. Too bad. I have a feeling Hurley will have them playing well in the next couple of years.
Let's get ready for Fordham.
