College of William & Mary - dan10 - 01-05-2016 02:21 PM

Since it seems like the zone has finally gasped its last breath, I will post here as long as others post as well. We face W&M on Thursday at home. Nothing screams success in this one. W&M is too quick and utilizes too many backdoor cuts for us to stand much chance. We have been atrocious on defense, especially help defense so look for the Tribe to make lots of cuts causing help defense to scramble causing a lot of good and open looks. The Tribe have shot well this year so that should play into their hands.

In yet another game our strength needs to be feed the bigs as often as possible, but we wont and will settle to being a terrible jump shooting team. We have been playing better in the second half of games lately, but I think that trend stops here.

First half:
W&M: 44
Drexel: 32

W&M: 85
Drexel: 61

Thanks for posting here. Unfortunately, based on the way things have been going, I can't really debate your analysis or argue your prediction.

But out of curiosity, when was the last time you posted a predicted Drexel win? Seems like it's been years.

Actually, as you know I am quite fair in my predictions, but I have predicted quite a few wins including going 2-1 in Alaska this year. Several predictions this year I have been very very close on (UNCW was a home run prediction by me) others I have missed on. Unfortunately in the past several years its been harder to predict wins because we have not been good. I said before the La Salle game I thought our first win would be against Elon (had us dropping La Salle and losing to Penn by 1). Obviously missed on all 3, but that is why they are projections. Not sure anyone saw the La Salle performance coming.

Surprisingly we are only 5 point underdogs tonight, so seems like Vegas has some faith in us.

I guess they're giving us 5 points for being the home team, which would be reasonable. But apparently the oddsmakers haven't been to the renovated DAC (where the DAC Pack, or what's left of it, is about 400 feet from the court) which provides no home court advantage at all.

Standard Vegas procedure is to award 3 points to the home team. So on a neutral court, W&M would be favored by 8, and in Williamsburg, the spread would be 11.

Which still leads to "what do they know that we don't?"

Feeding the low post early and Kaz making the shots. Great to see and its working, so look for us to go away from it shortly.


RE: College of William & Mary - dan10 - 01-07-2016 07:26 PM

11:20 left 16-9 Drexel. We are focusing on using our bigs and attacking the hoop, just like we should. It is working and Kaz and Rodney are making their shots. Hopefully we keep it up. Pace is a bit in their favor


RE: College of William & Mary - dan10 - 01-07-2016 07:31 PM

9:05 left 17-16 W&M


RE: College of William & Mary - dan10 - 01-07-2016 07:34 PM

7:53 left down 21-16. We settled for nothing but jumpers during that stretch between media timeouts. This is more of what was expected and if we dont get smarter it will get out of hand.


RE: College of William & Mary - dan10 - 01-07-2016 07:37 PM

6:11 remaining and we are jacking up 3's and W&M is heating up. 27-16


RE: College of William & Mary - dan10 - 01-07-2016 07:38 PM

Another 3 for W&M. 30-16 we are heading to the FT line


RE: College of William & Mary - dan10 - 01-07-2016 07:39 PM

Made them both to end their 21-0 run over 5 minutes.


RE: College of William & Mary - dan10 - 01-07-2016 07:39 PM

This passing around the arc against a zone is a thing of beauty...not


RE: College of William & Mary - dan10 - 01-07-2016 07:40 PM

34-18 4:10 left, timeout Bru


RE: College of William & Mary - dan10 - 01-07-2016 07:45 PM

2:15 left a couple steals we have cut into the lead 36-24 but missed the FT


RE: College of William & Mary - dan10 - 01-07-2016 07:51 PM

W&M goes the full length of the court with 6 seconds left to end the half up 44-27 with the buzzer beater


RE: College of William & Mary - dan10 - 01-07-2016 07:54 PM

Cant go over 7 minutes without a basket and expect anything good to happen, but not unusual for a Bru team. The first 8:30 we led 16-9. The final 11:30 we were outscored 35-11
