What is his offense? I think I saw like 10 straight possessions where the ball never crossed the three point line. The other team doesn't even break a sweat guarding us.

Groce's offense is pedestrian. I don't long for Weber's motion, but I at least knew what the plan was. We're four years in without an identity. And yes, of course it's difficult with the players we are missing, but these problems didn't just start this year.

Yep. I keep waiting for cutters, for multiple screens off the ball, stuff I see every night from other programs. Jerzuz, our guys should be playing lights out D, as they get a HUGE rest on the offensive end...

MH going a little too much one on....not sure why ...Mav is establishing himse;f in thepost...need to keep getting it down and attacking the lane and the basket

We need a pg the worst way. When Lewis or Tate play, it's like playing 4 on 5 on offense

Bulls played 4 on 5 on offense with Rodman... won 3 NBA titles. Of course he got about 18 rebounds a game and could play defense.

No PG in and its looking better. Cant believe they haven't started to press (granted it is NW)

Totally agree on the lack of an offensive identity in any of Groce's four years

lol. Isn't that hilarious.

Unfortunately it didn't appear any player actually knew what their offensive game plan was in those interviews. I guess it makes sense why we the fans can't quite figure it out either.

It didn't appear that any of the players knew what it was in the first half of this game either. :noidea:

Identity doesn't matter when you shoot 29%. We are winning boards though. Too many missed closeup 2s, IMO...need to finish better near the rim.

Yet again getting killed by a total nobody on the perimeter...
