They are an athletic, guard heavy, perimeter oriented squad. They're soft in the middle with no one taller than 6' 8". They're deep as they'll use 10 players. They'll press full court and break as much as possible. They take a ton of 3-pointers often times without regard to shot clock or game situation. They play hard but sometimes lose focus on defense, which is a mixture of man and zone.
Harris is the best player but Freeman is the glue guy. Harris is an athletic slasher who hoists up too many 3's. Freeman is very quick and can get to the rim when he wants. He's a streaky 3-point shooter. He's a good on ball defender who gets a lot of steals.
While many accuse Howland of scheduling cupcakes, and that is true to some extent, maybe Howland has some other motive in mind. Notice how many of those teams are from the east coast. Now I know, the average NY recruit doesn't follow those teams, but is there some way in which playing these teams gives us a little more East Coast exposure?
I might be stretching here, but I was just wondering, because not only have we broken from a somewhat tougher schedule, we have also broken from playing a lot of the smaller SoCal schools.
There is something else going on here. What motivates it? Does Howland just know these guys from scheduling at Pitt? Does he not want to give SoCal teams a chance to crow over beating the giant in their own backyard?
