Those guys could take a pass and throw it down, though

Right now, if our guards and wings get past their man, and a big guy steps up to challenge the drive, we have a hard time exploiting that for dunks because our big guys aren't great at receiving passes and finishing along the baseline.

I feel like that's what Syracuse exposed in the 2nd half, and Duke exploited. Extend the pressure on our guards and help off the bigs on picks and drives. That makes it hard for our outside guys to get space, and dares us to throw it down low. Tony has his work cut out for him to adjust, given our personnel, but I have all the faith in the world that he can do it.
