Yes, yes, yes.

This is one of the most frustrating things about watching this team. And frankly it’s not just this year’s team. Either picking up the dribble and getting swarmed by defenders, leading to a turnover, or, more often even, dribbling the call around until there are just a few seconds left on the shot clock, and either throwing a wild pass, throwing up a wild shot, or not even getting a shot off before the shot clock expires. How many times have we seen that. More than I can count.

Much of the time, for the life of me, I can’t figure out what kind of offense Pingeton is running. And I’ve watched a considerable amount of basketball over the years. You don’t have to be an expert, or have coaching experience, to see that some offenses have a flow to them, a rhythm, a sense of collective purpose. And some don’t. Teams with a sense of what to do on offense move, pass, cut, screen, weave, and you don’t have to be super athletic or big to do it. Yes, having the right personnel has a lot to do with it too. Running a coherent offense is much easier when you have real honest to goodness point guards. Which we don’t.

But for large stretches of games, there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to our offense, which results in all the things that cripple our ability to score, turnovers, not shooting until late in the shot clock (if at all), etc.
