St. Patrick 104 Silver Grove 48

Recommended Posts

He did pull his starters. I was there. He played his bench most of the game. The kid who broke the school record, broke his own record. The score could have been a lot worse than what it was.

Look at the scoreboard. Bellevue beat them by 49, Villa Madonna 46, Calvary Christian 53 and 67, Robertson 49 and 55, and St. Patrick 42 and 56. So I don't understand why St. Patrick is getting criticized for this game.

Admittedly, I don't know starters from bench players but I'll stand by my comments on dropping 3s during a running clock.

I noticed Ben Swolsky or Isaiah Garrison haven't played the last few games. Are they done for the year?

 

Were they on the bench ?

He didn't until after they had dropped all the bombs. Your logic doesn't make the situation right. Even the coach wanted them to run offense, but they didn't listen to him....

 

The reason St Pat is getting criticized for this game is their behavior in this game....attempting to justify it by other scores is non-starter for sure.

 

It was unnecessary, and if you think that it was ok, then you clearly have a distorted picture of sportsmanship.

 

Oh, and Welcome to BGP....glad to see you could show up to attempt to defend the team actions.

Would you rather they shoot layups?

 

No, just should have showed some class and run some offense...

Long time no see! But I would rather they practice running through their offense with starters and then JV players trying to hit the 3rd to 4th option on a play, if that early.

I have to ask the question, did Silver Grove do anything to stop them from shooting the 3's defensively?

I agree with this, however, not knowing the teams, does St. Patrick play a 3pt offense?

I will assume every team has a set offense or series of plays they run....pull up 3's in transition, up by 40 is not any of that

Ok you know what I meant, do they primarily shoot 3's more than dropping it inside.

Not counting last night (I don't know the number of 3 attempts), they average 20 3-point attempts per game (540 attempts in 27 games). That's good for third most 3-point attempts per game in the 10th Region, behind Calvary Christian (570) & Pendleton County (620).

I'll play Devil's Advocate... Pull-up 3s in transition consume less of the clock than running sets, allowing more possessions for the Big Trains. So really, were they running it up or giving them opportunities?
