The team played hard but there were many problems.  In the first half, we gave up too many dunks and layups.  In the second half, we were leaving them open for threes.

We were outrebounded 48-26.  The Blazers had 15 offensive rebounds to our three.

Davis was good except for the unforced turnovers towards the end.  No other player really stepped up.

Our bench contributed little.  Vanhook is playing hurt and Jackson seems to have run out of gas.  A few weeks ago, it was looking like QJ had turned the corner.  He hasn't brought much to the table the last couple of games.

Ajukwa started out great tonight and then got derailed by foul trouble.

UAB is not that good.  With our lack of height, we are just a bad matchup for them.

When we play the lineups we do we are a bad matchup with every team that plays the sport of basketball.

Our defense just keeps getting worse and worse and our coach is refusing to give his two seven footers any meaningful chance to make it better.

Davis is keeping his ppg stat up.

FT% was good.

Team only had 7 turnovers for the game.

That is all.

Please Please Please Coach Price try playing a zone...... 52 points in the paint. Damn!!!!!!



What's the NCAA record for most dunks giving up in a season? We have to be closing in on it.


Give Benas a chance to help this team

uab just kept dunking on the guys and no one could stop them.

While I share everyone's sentiments on our defense our 7 footers haven't really given me any reason to think they would be any better. They don't rebound, they don't block. I mean... they are tall but...

At this point, I guess, what is there to lose? Maybe throw the 7 footers out there just to see if they are different than (I'm assuming this is because of -) practice. We suck so bad, I guess we might as well, but IMHO these guys are border line D-1 players and I don't see it making much of a difference.

I feel bad saying that, because they chose to go come to our school and represent us.  But, we just don't have very good talent, and that applies to our front court especially. The coaching staff is not very good at teaching defense, but that doesn't mean we have the front court pieces even if they did. Look, they get out hustled by Reid Aube.

It looks like the coaches have decided that Garvin is the future so they are giving him the minutes.  Some days he is like a puppy, feet and hands flying, and whistles blowing, but he has improved.  I feel good about his potential and want him to get plenty of minutes.  I just wish it didn't feel like we had written this season off and are getting ready for next year.
Hey 49er undergrads, you are bigger than UNC-CH.  Start acting like it!

I really like Garvin and his potential. I just look at Benas & Bergang this way, they were beat out by a former 6'7 walk-on (who I appreciate giving his all to the program and his level of effort when he plays with) and a 6'2.5 PF in Hook (who is skilled, just vastly undersized).  I don't think Bergang has the strength to play on the interior right now and Beans is what he is, not an effective rebounder or shot blocker despite being 7 foot tall.


Clearly we need an influx of bigs to help Garvin out come next year. We have 1 in DeVarte Watson and the staff is hunting big men. How many more do they bring in? No idea, at least 1 more experienced guy is my guess (JUCO/grad transfer). 


UAB game is a perfect example. We reduce their offensive rebound totals, we're right there to win that game on the road.  The staff knows it's an issue and are working to get another big man.

I wondered if they did.  It is good to hear that is not the case.

There was speculation that Major did the same thing when he played Henry, Williams, Clayton and Clark so many minutes early in their careers.  Obviously that didn't pan out for Major. 


However, I think Price's situation is different.  He's not playing the younger guys over upperclassmen (like Green, Braswell, Spears and Briscoe), except for maybe Benas.  Bergang is also a freshman.


Unfortunately in the current situation, I think the 6'7" and 6'4" guys are simply better than the 7' guys.

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.

I don't recall a 49er team in our history that was as undersized as our last two seasons.

As a beginning Division 1 program, Bill Foster brought in serviceable inside players and in some cases great ones.

Even during the Hal Wissel dark years we had some pretty good frontcourt players in Melvin Johnson, Clinton Hinton and Ray Gromlowicz.

We also had a history of finding diamonds in the rough and developing them. 

I have to wonder whether our current staff is misjudging talent or they just can't close the deal with forwards and centers that could actually help us.

There is a lot of pressure on them to upgrade the frontcourt by this spring.  We cannot whiff again on the prospects we need.

Any time the seven footers play, their defense is just as bad. So putting them in does nothing for me. Wish DeMarco was on staff, I bet he could find a good big man.

It looks as though DeMarco has given up coaching these days, according to his Twitter and LinkedIn.

Funny, that subject came up recently and Demarco's responses on facebook:

Hell at this point I'd swap him out for one of our assistants, give him Charlotte as his recruiting area and tell him to try to keep kids in Charlotte.

Benas had his best game against the best team they have played.(12 pts 5rbs in 27minutes) Yet he hasn't played over 10 minutes in a game since than.
He's not a center. Let him play facing the basket. He has one more year of eligibility so it want be a waste.
