Men's BB: Game Management


RE: The ability to put opponents away once a team has another team "on the ropes". Thinking about how the team will stack up this year and looking back on the past, I am wondering if this year's team will have the "killer instinct." When was the last time we had a team with that ability? The most glaring example of not having it was the Kansas game in the tournament. And then there was last year's Clemson game- limping to the finish line. Or, letting Michigan back into it after all but beating them at home. There are too many examples of not having that ability. Is it coach-able? That is what I like to see in a team. The confident ability to put teams away. Maybe it is leadership. Sure would like to see if someone will step up and assume that mantle this year.
