HC looks to have tired legs and has been a step slow on many defensive possessions.
Offense has also been less fluid than the BU games, with more guys standing around watching.
With the score 75-59, by my count, 69 of Army’s 75 points were scored by Seniors and Juniors. On the other side of the ball, HC is playing 2-3 (sometimes 4) Freshmen virtually the entire game and that difference in experience has been very clear today.

A few observations:
1. No surprise there's already a plan to defend Gates: double team down low, make him prove he can pass out of the double team or shoot from the outside. 2. We're not a good rebounding team. 3. There's good effort on D but we play poor team defense. That's inexperience. 4. Ryan Wade deserves a lot of minutes: good D, poised, good shooter. 5. We have a lot more talent than last year, but don't gel as a team yet. 6. HC's problems are fixable but this year is going to be a roller coaster ride.
These days will happen with a young team and coach. Hopefully we make some adjustments and can get the split tomorrow. We are really, really thin up front. If we have to play small, I’d like to see us try to be more disruptive defensively before the other team can get the ball to the basket. Once they get it down there, it usually ain’t good for us.
