There is a striking difference between our offense and good offenses. KU moves it side to side more in a two or three minute segment than we do in a half. Houston is so good at doubling the post, but when they did it yesterday, Dickinson would make a quick read and fire a pass that either led to an open shot or got the defense scrambling and served as a hockey assist. And even when they turn it over, which definitely annoys their fans, they are the kind of turnovers you can live with because they are trying to make an extra pass rather than just being careless with the ball. There are almost no possessions where Harris or McCullar brings the ball up and just stands dribbling the air out of the ball at the top of the key.Everything you say here is correct. Basketball is not a complicated sport. Movement without the ball on offense is critical at every level. I coach small ball junior high and high school and I CONSTANTLY get on to players for passing and then watching the guy with the ball. Cut, screen away, curl, do something. Moser is 1,000,0000 times the coach I will ever be so I’m not sure where the disconnect with his offense is.
Against Tech the offense moved really well. There were off the ball screens, double screens, etc. I hope they can replicate that more in the future.
I realize we aren’t Kansas. But in a way, that makes it even more important for us to run good offense. Nonstop high ball screens just won’t work with the personnel we have.
