I have never understood why coaches stop doing what got them to where they are. Down 20, OSU decides to press the entire way and they get it down to 3. Then they decide to take the press off and WSU bumps it back up to 9. No sense.
Poorly coached game by Matta. Team didn't start playing till 10 minutes left in the second half. And to echo the previous poster, can anyone explain the thinking for taking the press off when it put you in the situation?
I really thought OSU would make the Final Four and lose to Louisville. Things were perfectly set up for them by having the easiest region. Just goes to show you that matchups are huge in the NCAA Tournament.
Such a bad way to go down. But at the end of the day, back to back elite 8 is a hell of a run, if we keep Thomas & Ross we could be here again next year. We have a few studs coming in, hopefully they can shoot. If we just had a dead nuts shooter, this team would be great.
