Game 7- Northern Illinois

Recommended Posts

This team on paper the deepest and most talented team of Groce's tenure.  Unfortunately, the games aren't played on paper.  This team is the high point of every MAC Team's schedule.  Look at how EMU and NIU celebrated their wins, like they won the damn league championship and every team is going to give its best effort to knock off the reigning league champ.

 

It took a while, but teams have started to figure out LCJ.  They're not going to shut him down but teams are starting to body him when he drives, tighten up on him when he's on perimeter and focus their defensive rotations on stopping him.  It's up to the coaches to figure out a way to counter what the other teams are doing and his teammates to step it up.  Some of these kids need to realize this is when Groce starts settling into rotations and if they don't pretty soon start showing something they'll have a long season on the socially distanced chairs.

The team just doesn't have enough shooter's. Dailey, Wynn, Ali, and Tribble are all below average outside shooters. Trimble is very streaky. Teams are starting to pack the paint and dare Akron to shoot 3s. I hope more game reps will help some but I think this team has a fatal flaw. 

Would like to see a little more Clarke and more 1-3-1 to speed up the game. They have athlete's and need to figure out how to best use them.

So Groce seems to think that the team that came into this game with only a win vs. Chicago St (0-9) gets all the credit.  Proposing a new mascot:
