Well, the Pac-12 teams obviously decided they had to take that penetration away from ASU's guards and until they come up with a counter move...the Sun Devils will continue to struggle. It is really congested in the lane right now when the guards take it all the way to the hole.
: They are a mediocre team when they do that. What makes them special is penetration. We don't have great spot up shooters. Shannon and Kodi are streaky spot up shooter. Tra and Remy are better off the dribble. And our bigs are not nearly good enough. When have you ever seen someone double one of our bigs? They don't need to. They can defend them straight up. Our biggest problem though is we sleepwalk defensively through most of the game. Teams are able to run their sets and do what they want. Our degree of difficulty on shots is far higher than our opponents. Until we learn to defend with passion for 40 mins instead of in 5 min spurts this is the team we will be.
: : driving through a constant maze trying to get to the hoop against the zone. Instead, they should beat that zone by dumping the ball down inside early and let the interior players look for an easy score or kick it back out to the perimeter shooters. This squad should be killing teams that play zone against them!
