One thing Bruce has spoiled us on there. His inbounding sets under the rim are a things of beauty.Our inbounds play under the basket needs some massaging too!
It was a quandary. I don't blame him tactically. Just one of those nights where the open looks weren't falling.I also didn't understand allowing JQ to continue to play hero ball unsuccessfully against the rim protectors. As mentioned, a TO and some adjustment from that would have been welcomed!
To be fair, I don't know what the adjustments might have been. Miller was obviously not an option to get the rim with his injury. His 3 point shooting became abysmal. Nobody else was hitting them either. Honestly JQ was probably our best option but should have been jacking 3s instead of going to the rim and getting it sent into the stands over and over!
This is why it's so hard to win a ring in college basketball. In a 7 game series Bama would have probably won in 5. Single elimination is part of what makes March Madness fun, but it also requires teams to be incredibly consistent for 6 straight games to win the title.
