Re: Dayton Flyer Basketball
Frustrating, though not particularly surprising loss, to Murray State today. No video (blacked out for that huge Flyer contingent in Bloomington, IN) or radio (can't handle Bucky), so I casually followed a box score.
Looks like we didn't have an answer for Canaan and couldn't overpower them down low. I'd be interested to hear from someone who watched the game why they didn't go to Benson more frequently (currently 7-7 from the field, though with 5 turnovers), as it was my understanding that the Racers didn't have much inside talent or size.
I also can't get past the idea that a BG-helmed team might have gave the Racers a better game; really challenge their guards and then hope to crush them on the boards. With the players on team, I gotta believe we would of stood a better chance.
I've read a number of quotes from Archie on how he thought this team shot the ball well. It's always struck my as curious, knowing who we had coming back, and strikes me as downright farcical after shooting games like this afternoon's.
Onward. Gonna be a challenge Wednesday with Anthony Grant's Crimson Tide coming to town.
