Re: 2/16 | St.Bonaventure Bonnies | 7PM (ESPN2)

If we're up by 20 with 6 minutes left and want to run some clock to limit the number of possessions the other team can get, I get it. But why do it when there's 6 minutes left and up by 6? I don't get it at all. It kills momentum and results in bad, rushed shots as the shot clock expires. Can someon...

Re: 2/16 | St.Bonaventure Bonnies | 7PM (ESPN2)

Turning point was Stan’s turnover that led to the breakaway dunk with about four minutes left in the game. We had a six point lead and just had an offensive rebound. We were in the process of milking the clock for another 20 or 25 seconds. Had a chance to go up by eight or nine late in the game and...

Re: 2/16 | St.Bonaventure Bonnies | 7PM (ESPN2)

I still don't like trying to protect a lead with 4 or 5 minutes left. All you end up doing is forcing a shot as the shot clock is about to expire. I'd rather keep doing what we're good at and go for the throat. If we're up 3 or 4 with a minute or so to go, fine. But I think 4 or 5 minutes is way too...
