The lack of talent is obvious, especially at the 5 position. Unfortunately, we have no depth and I believe Hurley was sending a message to the team about lack of effort. Several times this season we have seen great effort, resulting in wins or very respectable efforts.
The lack of depth makes it almost impossible to press, because we only have three scholarship players sitting on the bench. I hope we can finish strong. They need to make every position count and crash the boards. We have to be one of the worst rebounding teams I have ever seen. Little to no boxing out and a huge lack of aggressiveness. Next year we will be young but the ship will be righted.
: Went to both the USC and UCLA games at home a few weeks back. It started off with a very impressive hard fought win over a ranked USC team. A few days later saw a sloppy performance and whistle to buzzer packed with so many Hurley complaints about nearly every call. Then the game started slipping in the second half, and with 3+ minutes left we put no full-court press on and the deep bench players came in with 2 minutes to go. I told a buddy it was odd, seemed like Hurley threw in the towel early. Since then we haven't even been competitive.
: Disappointing winding down of the season no matter how you slice it. Sure hope Hurley has plans to elevate quickly from here.
: Go Devils!
