I'm not quite sure it was all a result of them playing zone - hopefully it is just an adjustment the team is making to improve the offense and will be continued regardless of the opponents' strategy...Good post. All of a result of them playing zone. Good sign for sure how they attacked it most of the time like you said.
We’ll see what happens against better M2M and zone. Whether the ball movement stops and/or the bad habits manifest themselves again.
on another note - it was good to see the team attack a zone and get the ball into the paint a bit - always makes me wonder when the syracuse offense basically does what the team wants opponents to do on defense - i.e. pass the ball around the perimeter and jack 3's...like, if the team wants opponents jacking 3's and not getting interior touches - then why has that been the team's approach offensively?
