    I'll go with poor zone offense leading to breakouts for NA and better looks

    Natural to let down after an insanely good first 15 minutes.

    They have 2 players that have any sort of ability to score or hurt us.

    Wish our team defense adapted to the 1 or 2 players who are a threat.

    Adjust accordingly.

    We act surprise when one player scores 9 or 10 consecutive points.

    Meanwhile, we are actively defending other plays just as aggressively. Some that can barely handle a bball.

    Its the reason we lost to Tennessee.

    Not every team, even Top 10 teams have 5 players on the floor who can score effectively like we can...

    We need to learn to adjust or will get burned in NCAA Tourney by one or two players who get "hot" for an opponent.

    We used to do a much better job making adjustments to shutting down 1 or 2 players who are scoring. Zags seem to defend all 5 equally.

    Commend the effort but its a mistake

    47-6 was the high point. It's been going the other way since.

    Still waiting for Zach to have a break out shooting night. He’s yet to hit greater than 50% of his 3s in a game this year.

    Imagine if we measured his shooting stats by halves...handful of games he has gone 0-fer in 1st half and 5-6 in 2nd half.

    Agree. Even at the middling level I played when someone got hot we put our best defensive guy in his pocket. The question is......Why don’t the Zags do that? Any reason not to?

    We defend guys who average 0.6 ppg for their career as aggressively as the player who averages 18 ppg, and just scored their last 14 pts, including 4 3's. While that happens we are face guarding the guy who cant dribble, shoot, & only on the court to rebound.

    Just not good defensive scheme or adjustments.

    Even shows up vs worst teams in NCAA
