I think our weakness is other hall of fame coaches.

And by weakness, I mean we dominate everyone else. As someone else mentioned, we routinely crush Louisville who are statistically better than either team defensively most years. I think Duke is often our worst matchup, because they can shoot their way out of close games (and they usually barely sneak by). Michigan State was a one possession game the first game and we had catastrophically cold shooting the second game (along with their point guard being on fire). We've never played Florida while healthy. Press teams are designed to disrupt teams, but we've played WVU close the last two years and killed them after a bad first half before that. VCU also beat us with a buzzer beater due to our sloppy play.

If a team can't play in the half court, we kill them. If they are really good in the half court, the games are competitive. Against West Virginia this year, we played poorly in the first half and became one dimensional when Guy started hitting shots and we stopped running team offense.
