Call me old fashioned but I do not believe that a team can be successful if you ignore the inside. Colleges can recruit to run those kinds of motion offenses but high schools can't and if you do not have the players to run a 5 out or motion offense, why would you? so yes I am baffled by his offensive choices and having over 25 years of coaching experience at least allows me to question
Ok. I feel as if you are only taking bits and pieces of what I am saying. I said "Honestly, I didn't think you were out of line..."-- I didn't think you were being harsh. I was joking.
Hence the giggling face. I happen to agree with much of what you are saying (especially as a short post player back in my day).
I have watched ENOUGH D5 basketball to form an OPINION- and I guess I missed it in the NDPreps rules "Thou shalt not form an opinion unless you know all players on every team regarding topic". I have watched every single team in D5 play at least once and a lot of them more than 4 times. I watched the Stutsman Co. tournament last year as well as Districts in Jamestown AND Regionals in Napoleon. I went to some of their regular season games AND tried to catch them any time they were on BEK TV, so I will clarify: After what LaMoure lost to graduation (& what they lost to injuries), considering where the majority of their points came from, I ranked them as such. What I didn't get to see a lot of-- was their bench. With my years of playing and coaching experience, I believe I am also entitled to that opinion.
I wish your Loboes the best of luck.
