I think they were definitely confused. After Trent put us up 1 and Wisconsin re-took the lead, Ayo and Kofi ran the same action. The buzz-cuts all ran to Kofi to stop the lob, giving Ayo the easiest layup of the night and a lead they wouldn't relinquish. They may have found a "go to" play for those stretches when the offense stagnates. Hopefully helping eliminate those 5-8 minute scoreless stretches that plagued us last year and early this season.Watching the game last night, I feel like we actually saw a lot of this. 3 lobs to Kofi led to two dunks and a foul, and on the one where I recall them taking the Kofi option away, Ayo found Griffin (I think) in the corner for a 3.
There was one point in the broadcast where it picked up the Wisconsin players talking about how to defend this and they seemed a bit confused by it. Wonder if it's something they hadn't seen on film, so they weren't ready for it.
