Reviewing the WSSU game

The good: State shot an sFG% of over 57%.

The bad: State turned the ball over in nearly a quarter of its possessions (24.2%)


Listening to the game on the radio, Tony Haynes made a point to note that Winston Salem State was really pressuring the passing lanes and the ball handlers, doing everything they could to create turnovers. They did, to a fault. While it led to some turnovers it also gave the Pack some easy layups when they were able to break the pressure or hang on to the ball.

So what can State take from this game? Not a whole lot, really. Certainly it gave coach Lowe another reason to work on protecting the ball, and that's a good thing. If our guards reach ACC play and are still having difficultly hanging onto the ball then the Pack could be in for a world of hurt.

Other than that, though, there's not a lot to glean from this game. Take your win and prepare for the Pirates on Wednesday.

  1. they still gave up 10 offensive rebounds. that combined with the 16 TOs gave them 26 extra possessions. they shot the ball 10 more times than we did.

    that troubles me. it's the same thing we did last season and it killed us.
