Actually, yes...

It doesn't have to be all game, but the idea to max Clark/Beekman minutes (which, start your engines, is coming in full force this year) and having nobody help Huff near the rim, while making him hedge 30 feet from the basket constantly, might have been a problem. Part of the hedge is air time. Wilkins, Mitchell, Key, etc. were amazing here. We had Hauser.

This is college basketball, you severely overrate how much Murphy and Hauser would've had to defend average 2's and 3's. Their offensive value far exceeded any defensive value, but the offensive value we lost by running Clark and Beekman out there 70+ minutes/game was very noticeable. They also had 4-6 inches on most guys. We weren't getting beat on drives.

We defended twos OK like we always do, three defense was garbage, and we create zero turnovers. The small lineups are trash.

I'm just telling you, every time Virginia goes small in the pack line, opposing coaches high-five each other. Cool, I can get my spot-up three whenever I want over a 5-9 guy?
