at the start of the season, they had a great win over texas... they ran the court well and played decent d and didnt rely on the 3 all the time... i thought it was going to be a good season... theres no way they can play that kind of up tempo game now...

One of the problems, as I see it is that we often times live and die by the 3-pointer. Also, I'd like to see them get the ball to Luke earlier to establish that inside presence, then as he gets double team, then pitch it outside. I think getting the ball to Luke and getting him in a groove early can really do a number on a team. When the season began, everyone was like watch out for Luke, best player in the Big East, perhaps the 2nd best player in the country, now it seems teams aren't as worried about him. Again, I think alot has to do with the 3-pointer, I don't see why some of our great shooters can't step inside the line a few feet, it's more of a high percentage shot. We need to start thinking this way, and placing an emphasis on tightening up our defensive game, otherwise we might find outselves struggling to make it to the big dance at the end of the year.

you make a great point of getting luke the ball INSIDE... the past few games ive been going nuts watching him try to take over with lik 5 or 6 minutes in a game with that fade away 20 footer and then noone in the paint to rebound...

as im writing this, luke zeller is 4-4! ha

blair for pitt already has 7 rebounds 4 minutes into the game...no inside presence... this kid just wants its more and is just physically stronger than nd's 'big' guys outside of gody

What is with Luke? Why the fade-aways? Go strong to basket already, pound that glass!

Our inside game seems non-existent. This game seems like all the rest, build a lead then squander it. Where is the 'fight' in the Irish?

15th in the conference in shooting... thats because the majority of the shots are outside of 17 feet

both teams are playing a zone... look at the difference in the speed and rotation to the ball on pitts side compared to ND's.... unbelieveable

jeah sure there are issues, there always are but leading @pitt at half time is a good thing that was my point. Seriously this wasnt a game i thought we would be in at all.

the green rubberband tells the nation that he's wearing an especially hideous mock turtle neck today
