As I recall, the 5 guard offense was not part of our game plan vs. UNC-W.

In fact, TB said after the game that we had never even practiced a 5 guard offense. TB went to it out of desperation & it worked well enough to get us a tough win. Personally, I think that it was one of TB's best coached games in his time at UVA. TB is occasionally criticized for being inflexible; IMO, the UNC-W is proof that this isn't true. The fact that this was an in-game adjustment (in the course of the 1st half -- not even at halftime -- if my memory is correct) just makes TB's successful move all the more impressive.

  Actually NCS not playing five guards is better -- sfb123 01/12/2018 8:26PM
