So Texas destroyed Baylor last night, did Baylor stay in zone the whole time?

Looks like shutting down Mason might be more importanter than being perfect against the zone.. or maybe somewhat equally important

He got jacked in the jaw pretty good last night against the Horns. Didn't play as much as he normally does.



Also he apparently hurt his foot (too close to home for EMAW-U) in practice. That's probably the better reason for why he didn't play as much.

I would like to see what one of fans colorcoded big 12 stat rankings thingys looks like when the cats are in first place  :pray:

It looks good and shooting is on the upswing.

Those w/ Dean stats, holy crap!

Gotta hand it to the coaching staff for turning our weakness, rebounds, into a strength. And without the guy we thought who would be our rebounding savior getting minutes.

The key to our game will be rebounding. Mason will not go off because we'll switch everything and all the guards can defend. They're the best offensive rebounding team in the league and we're the best defensive rebounding team. I wish I had someone tip nerd out with and do a film session as to why we rebound so well, despite having an elite rebounder like Baylor does. What we do on the boards as a team is impressive.

My best LBBIQ guess would be that our D is so good, we force a lot of bad shots, bad shots create really bad misses, bad misses are usually rebounded by guards/forwards and we have a few that show pretty good athleticism when going for defensive rebounds.

I think there is something to that. I have extremely LBBIQ but just looking with my eyeballs our guys don’t LOOK like great rebounders, but we definitely force a lot of Hail Mary type shots, which you just naturally expect will be picked up by the defense. So even though it doesn’t feel like a rebound it still counts.

We definitely were not ready for a 3-2. Our zone O was non-existent for 30 minutes, not sure what took so long to move Dean to the high post.
