How can we beat American twice last year (by an avg of 6 1/2 pts) only to lose twice this year (by an avg of 27 points)?  Amazing turnaround.

Just a little of the Grentz magic.

Early on last year, American lost its leading scorer and did not win many games as a result.  They are much better this year.  And we are worse than we were last year, for all the reasons we have discussed ad nauseam here.  

Tonight, American shut down the paint early, we stopped working for shots and started rushing the offense and chucking up 3s - which we stink at - and we lost the game by the end of the first quarter.  Very poor defensive effort too.

The refs were terrible.  I loved that Coach stuck up for the players and got herself a technical - she had had enough after two phantom travelling calls in a row on Ottewill-Soulsby and Stipa.  

Unfortunately though, by all accounts, Coach continues her bullying of the players.  I desperately want to be positive about the program and find silver linings, but it is very hard to do under the current regime.

Season low in turnovers!  Very Happy

We have discussed why we're worse than last year - but it still baffles me that we are THAT much worse than last year.

Anybody else remember the article Scott Morse did when they hired Grentz which amounted to a high-five to Bruce and a  big F U to this board? I'm a big fan of Scott Morse - you can't say our Sports Information isn't top of the pack, but that article set the tone for what has so far been a disaster. There's not much to do now but cast our eyes to next season. Is ten wins realistic then?
