You know what I like best about that play?
Dyrell Roberts' reaction after catching the winning TD pass - there was no overly excessive celebrating, no stupid taunting - just pure class. He acted like he'd been there before. Loved that.

Disagree - Stiney recruited a bunch of floppers.
JB Grimes had decent OL while Stiney coached the TEs, also decent. When JB went down with heart problems and Stiney took over the OL, we began to slip.

Our OL with Grimes could pickup a blitz. With Stiney, teams blitzed at will with no fear unless our QB could beat it with his legs. It was chuck and duck. We had to recruit dual threat or else we had no QB. Clark when he was hurt, Noel (and he got hurt), Glennon all got killed behind his lines.

He’s not a NBA 1st rounder this year for sure.
He will improve as season goes forward. His body has to mature and he needs to add muscle. He could be the main man next season and if that happens his NBA draft status will really improve!

In the open court
the more experienced player may very well have the advantage at this level. They may good speed, even matching us, but we need to have confidence to try to go to the hole in that open court situation.

Yes but lots of empty seats heading into 2nd half . . .
The Steelers have a rabid national fan base yet can't really keep the stadium filled. Some day these stadiums may disappear completely with the games played in, what amount to large studios.

Game plan was scripted by assistant coaches.
Good game plan script. 19 turnovers unwarranted especially when a number of them were self inflicted. KY shot 50% 3 pointers and they have been averaging 36% and they also attempted 22 3 pointers. Very Proud of our VT MBB team, players and coaches! We are 1 skilled 6’9” + big away from getting to the next tier in the ACC.

Interesting: Two guys with the same "fastness"
One is 6'8. One is 6'0"

In an open court.

Who has the advantage?

That would be a great study.

I agree with you 100% that UK looked vulnerable and we let them off the hook by pulling away to run our offense.

Watching games online
VT must have poor streaming capabilities. I've watched several games on the WatchESPN app. The Chattanooga and Monmouth games had good video quality. The quality yesterday was spotty at best and the game didn't start online until several minutes in. Video wasn't smooth and was pretty jerky at times which I recall to be the case last year. You'd think a university the size of VT would have better. Maybe it isn't related to VT but sure seems to be.

Several times, we made the mistake of giving up the dribble before ...
... we had anyone open to receive the pass. We'll learn from it and be better against the press the next time out.

I think our biggest issue against the press...
...is , despite our smaller guard oriented team , except for J-Rob , we really don't have anyone with much of a handle. Add bigger defending guards to that equation and it spells trouble for us.

Perhaps you are right. And maybe about respecting their transition D too
much. The thing is Kentucky's big players are fast too and I'm not sure how much an advantage we had from being small and fast, because fast is, well, fast. So did their fast cancel out our fast? But the quickest way to bring another team out of a press is by attacking the rim off of it repeatedly for easy baskets. So maybe it was just the respect thing, but I thought Kentucky looked vulnerable at least a few times once we were across midcourt and we didn't exploit it.

The way VT plays
They get the ball out to the ball handler up the floor and they then push ahead before the defense gets set...

It looks like they had rules against the pressure, and the ball handler knew the rules but for whatever reason you didn't have guys in the right gaps helping relieve pressure, and when they did happen to be in the right spot there were times they weren't aware of their surroundings and made a play out of their comfort zone

Reducing that down to little guards vs little guards kinda disregards the strategy in what's actually going on with the press...1 on 1 they handled the press decent well, but sometimes they were trapped and didn't have relief in the right spot...this led to trying to make a play before the defense got into the trap, but sometimes they were chasing ghosts and wound up throwing it away

Pressing is useful because 90% of your games are played against teams that don't press, so 90% of what you practice for is no press, hard to master something you don't practice for and hard to justify (limited) practice time for things you rarely see

We respected their transition rim defense (too much?)
II understand that I'm not facing 6'8" guys who run like gazelles, but I've always thought that a smaller, faster team should exploit their size/speed advantage by dissecting a big man press.

When the guys you are playing are also fast, but bigger
I'm not sure it helps us

not to say we shouldn't be able to break it but that's a long, athletic group of dudes...we have no way to simulate pressure like that in practice (and certainly haven't seen it in a game recently)
