The foul disparity was eye popping but I will say that UD played a good soft zone. It was a rock fight between two teams that have not played for quite some time and yes the shooting was not good. This is not a new thing with VCU. Nunn being out hurt because he is one of VCU's most productive offensive players.I don’t get CBS sports, so I couldn’t watch, but it looked like a good game from following along on my phone. Looked like a rough night shooting for both teams, but happy to get the road win.
Also, 27 FT attempts for Dayton and just 2 for VCU, which came in the last couple minutes?
Ha! Most of those highlights are of UD shooting foul shots. They only made 65%. I was not freaking out about it last night. UD played a soft zone and VCU was not attacking the glass finding opportunities to draw fouls. Reminded me of a 2014 game I flew with the team to watch in Cincinnati. VCU shot one free throw the entire game and they won.27-2 is absurd, regardless of circumstances. VCU’s press should be called for far more touch and grab fouls than it typically is, but still… that’s a jarring difference.
Coach said the team did not even practice. Nunn was too winded after warmups to go. He is still dealing with symptoms of the virus.Thanks
Just from the highlights the refs were killing me. But given VCU’s offense, a three week pause, and no Levi in the lane, it’s a great win.
