After having to endure a game between VCU and George Mason for aprox. 12 minutes of the UK game-time clock, we were finally able to enjoy our team on live television. The sad thing is, I wish I could've enjoyed it a little bit more than what I did along with my other ASOBluers, but unfortunately our team played reminiscent of some of the games earlier on in the season. I guess I'm starting to get a bit spoiled for thinking we should have blown them out, and the final score reflected our intensity of play. In addition to the post-game synopsis, let's share our thoughts of the game against Alabama and what we did good vs. what we didn't do so good.
To start it off...I thought our defensive execution wasn't the greatest. Overall, there was a lot of guys standing around, missing pick and rolls and just not defending very well.
I thought we did a good job at ball movement on offense at times though. Obviously, our turnovers were killing us in putting the Tide away, but when the guys passed well, they were getting the ball inside, just not inside enough. I would still like to see Patterson get much more active on offense.
