Nice offensive move by Trent a moment ago ... Any thoughts on why his intensity seems to have been up/down in this game? Does he have an injury?

Our "pressure" defense hasn't created much pressure lately. We aren't going to win many games giving up more turnovers than the other team, especially when they only have 6. Oh and we let them shoot over 50%. Maybe teams have figured out how to play against us
If the ball is consistently in the hands of a capable guard, they are going to find a way through this defense. You have to deny that guard the ball, turn him over, or hope he has a rough night. Phinesee is proving he's more than capable tonight.
 
We've given up 20 layups, that's absolutely inexcusable. I hadn't seen that stat yet, no wonder we're losing so badly.

I don’t think coach’s system is revolutionary. Sometimes you execute. Sometimes the other guy does. Sometimes the other guy schemes better. Sometimes the other guy has more talent, size and/or experience.
 
Does anybody know why Samba hasn’t gotten a little more tick this season? The little we have seen of him this year he has showed some promise!
Honestly, the way him and Tevian have been used this year has been infuriating. Don't get me wrong, I like what BU is doing, but to me those guys should be viewed as relatively important pieces moving forward, and instead due to lack of playing time I wouldn't be shocked if either decided to pursue other options. At a certain point once it was clear this season wasn't gonna end in a tournament bid, why not get these guys game action that will help them grow as players and gain chemistry with Ayo/Trent/GB/Feliz?

Deny getting the ball or if they do get it we can't over pursue when they're a great guard.

I get it, but giving up this many points at home SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN. I don't care how good another team is playing.

Okay, this game is over right now ... why doesn't Kane get in instead of ADLR coming back?
