Izzo didn't just fail to adjust to the SU zone. He made terrible decisions defensively too. The last six minutes of that game we had Bayer (a walk on point guard) playing because Frank Howard fouled out. Izzo didn't try to press, and he made no adjustments to try prevent Tyus or Oshae from scoring. Had to be one of the worst coaching performances I've ever seen. JB was brilliant, on the other hand. No disrespect meant... I like Izzo, but I question some of his coaching strategies. JB is IMO a better coach than Izzo, and I'd definitely point this out to Isaiah Jackson if it comes down to the two of us.We think Izzo was bad then too. He has struggled to deal with a zone as long as I remember. Generally when Izzo gets a one and done they get picked high.
