    I think Few benched him after that series of turnovers ?


    The GUB Resource Library: Stats, Blogs, Brackets, & More. . .

    Respect the Game. Respect the Zags. Respect each other.

    Thanks for the memories.

    That's a rough way to go out

    Agree-- comeback was made with him on the bench.

    Four straight turnovers; three to end the first half and one to start the second. He was too wired which caused him to play out of control, which caused all of the turnovers.

    Really?? We could have used his defense in the last 10 minutes. The defensive player of the year and one of the team leaders and Few benches him for Melson???

    I feel like I didn't see him in the huddles though... we sure he was on the bench?

    He had a really rough go of it tonight and was not playing his usual game. Tough way to go out but was the right coaching call.

    Melson is a motion killer on O. Great D, great athlete, but EMac just gives you so many more options on O.

    Melson and Perkins--hope they find their way next year. About as inconsistent as one can fear.

    Agreed. Got to have him in there despite having a rough game. This plus Sabonis and Wiltjer getting no touches in final possession were Few's two blunders

    Really? I'm sure Few said don't get the ball to Sabonis or Wiltjer...get some perspective.

    Perkins showed flashes of greatness at times.

    Did it look like he set up a play for either one of them to touch the ball?

    Regrettable coaching decision. WCC defensive POY, and team inspirational leader during the tournament. The senior should have been in there.

    He was just interviewed in the locker room...nothing but praise for his teammates, and no criticism for being benched during crunch time. The guy is a a complete class act. We'll miss you EM.

    The 7 point lead at the end was also lost with him on the bench.

    I agree....his defense was needed at the end, Few blew it!

    Personally, I think Few got it right, but then blew it


    He got it right by benching EMAC the whole 2nd half bc he single handly cost the Zags a 7 point lead going into half


    But then he got it wrong, bc in the final 3 possessions, with the season on the line, he should of had EMAC back in there..

    Benching him the whole 2nd half is the only thing I give Few credit for this entire game

    It seems like every year, if we are clicking and hitting shots, we have no issues, but when the going gets tough, and game gets tight, somehow we are never prepared or composed and once again, in the only game we played close this whole tourny, we found a way to blow it.. That's on Few.. It's not just some odd unknown anomaly that this happens every single year with different players .. Few is the only common denominator .. It's so clear that he will never get over this hump .. We will never win it all unless we just get a stacked team and blow every single team out by 15 all the way to the championship

    I wish Coach Few had inserted EMac to beat the press in the last couple of minutes. He might have been too cold from sitting most of the half, but that felt like his moment.

    Dish to Sabonis and layin and Few is a genius --- blocked shot and its all Fews fault for keeping Perkins on the floor --- not sure I agree with the arm chair QBs---only reason we were in the position to win this one was the moves that were made.

    I agree it was the right call to sit him. For a stretch.

    I disagree it was the right call to keep him their in crunch time.

    McClellan has arguably been our best, most crunch player the last 7 games.

    So much better than Silas on offense. More of a threat. Silas was 1-8 FG. Yes, McClellan was awful to start each half, but to sit him the final 10 mins?

    No way.

    The kid was our go-to defensive out and scored 20+ pts in 3 of the last 8 games.

    Clutch 3's? Clutch FT'S?

    It was Eric, not Silas or anyone else for that matter.

    Just a poor decision by Few, imho.

    Silas missed two KEY rebounds in the final few mins, maybe Eric would have secured those, maybe not…either way…he proved himself worth of closing out the game.

    Eric has been CLUTCH all year.

    Perkins? We're talking about Melson.
