    I still can't believe they called a foul on AT on Powell's layup after he hacked Paul. AT literally did nothing but stand there.

    Definitely need an offensive minded assistant. He may have been trying to give defensive instructions but I guess he doesn’t demand much when it comes to help side defensive. Overall just seemed like LJ was playing to the cameras. I hope Willard is not the bench mark that we want for out program. On his best day he is an average coach at best.

    Hadn't realized until Willard was talking in the last timeout that the final play might have been for an Nzei pick-and-roll but he slipped. Only Baddley was down under the basket, Nzei could have powered through him 100%. Really didn't like that LJ seemed to freeze in the last 5 minutes or so. Little communication on offense, which led to KB's late-second desperation drives and stepbacks.

    I agree - at the very least LaVall seems to know what he’s talking about defensively. He certainly has a ways to go offensively... The offense he called for during the timeout before the end of the first half was essentially “if they’re in zone, just get it to KB and see what happens”... And that has clearly been the strategy at many other points throughout the year.

    That being said, I’m confident if I randomly yelled “Go! Run! Hands up! Move your feet!” And mixed in complaining to the refs, I’d have 90% of Willard’s in-game coaching down.

    Few thoughts:

    IMO, Lavall outcoached willard, unless Willard was so concerned about the censoring that it rendered him silent. I agree with Connersville, lots of awkward pauses in the huddle.

    Willard annoyed the heck out of me with his whining to the officials, but it worked. His whining to get calls led to a lot more yelling from me when he got the calls.

    PJ was given some of the top defensive assignments last year. I remember it with Marquette in particular and that always seemed to get him going on both ends of the floor. I noticed a lot of that today when he got the Powell assignment. His shots were falling so that energized him I’m sure, but liked what I saw defensively.

    Oh geez. The video was so far behind the live action that it wouldn’t have been possible to intercept plays.

    I also forgot to mention - a top 25 program scored five points in the last 14 minutes of the game where they scored only 25 points total - at home, no less. I’ll take 5 in 6-plus over 5 in 14 any day, given the choice. All about perspective.

    Are you an NC State fan?

    “You gotta go hard to the middle!You gotta settle for one white guy on you! My son could go by him!” — can you say that on national tv?

    I still can’t tell if the one post was serious about the Catholic schools banding together to slap the non-Catholic school’s hand.

    I still say we need a coach.

    For those who offer very little in the way of constructive criticism or solutions other than consistently calling for the coach's dismissal, would perhaps be best served to find another team to support. Continuing to call for the coach's head is redundant the point of being counter productive. LJ will continue to be BU's head coach for the short term future.

    I even heard LJ say, we can get a 2 for 1 here. So he is aware of it. Not sure why this is the first time we have executed it.

    I don't know about that. I'm sure I heard Collier say, on FS1's All Access, he was going to fire LJ because he stole SH's last play of the game.

    BIG difference is that Duke wasn’t in the process of losing a 17 point lead with 6 3/4 minutes to play in the game!
