Bruin Offense

Love what Ben Howland has brought to UCLA hoops: Toughness, Defense, Pride. I have to say the one area that I'm a little dissapointed in is the lack of offensive creativity.

No matter the players, offesnse is still very slow and methodical and lacks ball movement. It was easy to predict we'd struggle with the 1-3-1 as you need crisp passing, quick ball movment and spacing to beat it and we had none of the 3.

I don't agree it's the Freshmen's fault.  Majority of the turnovers came from DC and JS our experienced seniors. I blame it on our offensive schemes.

Not necessarily dissapointed with the loss, but with the fact that the first few years of Ben ball he mentioned personnel as reason for not running more. He now has the atheletes to press, create turnovers, not to mention a deep bench.

The players' expressions make them look like they aren't enjoying playing the game and that they're so worried about making a mistake that they aren't playing loose on offense.

Love the final fors, love the defense, just would like to see some more fluidity on offense. It was also very easy to predict a Duke win vs 1-3-1 because of the way they spread the floor and pass. Why not change it up from time to time?
