I would of been there the entire game, but I left for Florida after Saturdays game. My decission to leave Saturday was based on road conditions. The roads were good and I am typing this in Florida. Given Monday's weather I made the right decision.

I only went to one pro am game this year and all he did was shoot threes. He was not the same player that I fell in love with last year. The one that was a bull in the China shop who took it to the rim every time he could. He has shown a good three point shot this year, but is no longer a bull inside.

Agreed.  Our defensive rebounding has been very poor in three of four games.  And really only  Ohio State has the size and rebounding that it should have been the case.

Defense only ends when the possession ends. The failure to grab the defensive rebound is one of the reasons our defense is so bad. I seen several times where our intial defense was great, but we did not get the rebound and the opponent ending up scoring anyways.

Everyone on the roster, outside of maybe Wilson and Dawson were HIGHLY recruited. I'm not accepting that. These guys are getting beat by 2 star kids. There is plenty of talent to whip teams like NJIT.
It depends on your definition of highly recruited. None of them were wanted by the Blue Bloods. JJJ was not even recruited by Memphis, his home team.

I was wondering if maybe Buzz' aversion to set plays in the half court offense is bringing the team down now. Wojo runs a lot more set plays and they have seemed to work in most cases, but I don't think are guys are used to playing like that. It will take some time but they should get better as the year goes on.
I also think it makes a difference on defense. Buzz always played chase the ball defense. Now players are more expected to play positional defense. In the past they did not have to think, just look were the ball is. Therefore, they are not only learning new offensive scheme they are also learning a new defensive scheme.

I'm sure Wojo would love to bench Derrick if he has other options that are performing.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure that he does.

Derrick is like training wheels. Ultimately, they might limit us from reaching top speed, but they also keep us from toppling over.

If MU can learn to play without training wheels, then they have a higher top speed. But, there is also a risk that they free-fall and have a DePaul season.

I just happened to see it when the TV camera panned that way and I said to myself, "Cool." That's all. I thought I'd share with those who might not have seen it. I'm hardly obsessed by it. Jeesh.
I noticed the same thing. It was very encouraging. A kid can't fake that kind of enthusiasm. Deonte has a bright future, possibly as soon as this weekend .

I haven't watched rewatched the end, but didn't Wojo pull Derrick after he missed the two FTs? I don't think he had a chance to pull Derrick before we got into hack a Derrick time.
You are correct , and I think it will become abundantly clear to Wojo that we simply can't have Derrick in the game at crunch time. Gives the other team a very high probability strategy against us by fouling him. The 13 minute Ohio State game was optimal in my view. Unfortunately some of the other kids are going to have to step their defense up or we are going to see more of these big minute games from Derrick.

Repeated break downs off of dribble penetration - puts guys into help situations, and thus leaving their man and the "clear" choice as to who to block out. 

I'm not saying rebounding isn't a problem, but rather that our eFG% we are yielding the opposition also greatly hurts overall rebounding numbers.  We still need to do a better job of controlling the defensive board as you point out - 56% isn't cutting it.  Yet that problem emanates from our issues preventing dribble penetration. 

Those are all very fair points. Our inability of guards to stop slashers takes our bigs out of position for the rebound. That makes a lot of sense. So definitely a combined problem.

So in a tight game at the end, we should be relegated to hack a Derrick to put him at the FT line exchanging 3 points for 1 or 0. I guess that is why we both get the big bucks for our coaching acumen.

I haven't watched rewatched the end, but didn't Wojo pull Derrick after he missed the two FTs? I don't think he had a chance to pull Derrick before we got into hack a Derrick time.
