And your point guard goes 5-10
Don't worry, someone will post "Hanlon will never go 5-10 from the stripe again" and not understand that this team has so many weaknesses (still) and can find ways to lose.
this is fucking retarded.
Sorry for overreaction. I'm pissed. This would have been a very good win.
You'd have to be blind not to see progress from last year to this year, but I'm afraid we're not seeing enough.
This pretty much captures it for me. Don said he wasn't worried about wins last season and wait for 50 games in. Well its close to 50 games in. And while they are clearly better (much of that simply being the effect of LoJack shooting well and opening up the floor) they still aren't doing what it takes to win.
Had they beaten Wake and won one of these two tight games against decent opponents, I might have a different outlook. But 19 turnovers against a bad Wake team, and poor FT shooting and down the stretch play in winnable games against underachieving teams make me a bit worried.
The problem with this is you view these teams as underachieving because they almost lost to BC. I'm sure you understand that this is a problematic measuring system for gauging BC's progress.
Also, turnovers and poor FT shooting are both addressable (much like rebounding...)
