Then my least favorite UC player since Field Williams, Rashad Bishop decides with 6 seconds on the shot clock to pull the ball out to around mid court. Instead of attacking from the top of the key he pulls the ball out! He dribbles around the arc and throws up a beyond NBA range 3 and banks it in! I almost fell out of my rocker on that possession. It was the nail in the coffin and probably the shot that secured UC's NCAA dreams.
I give Mick credit because he coached a great game. The zone (I hate zones) was effective and the press was top notch. The zone did effect the rebounding but that is to be understood. I did find it comical that on an inbound pass when Wright in bounded it to the open man, Justin Jackson, Mick called Wright over and yelled at him. First of all Mick it was a dead ball situation so you should have removed Jackson. Then you could have inserted him on the foul to put his defense and energy in the game. Don't yell at Wright when it was a coaching error.
Might see some more zone tomorrow. Just curious, why do you not like Bishop? His defense has been incredible.
