Coach's Notes
  • I'll say one thing, the Gamecocks are a really feisty bunch of players. Ginn and Adams really lit it up from three point range to wipe away a 20 point lead, and Valsin is a very talented rebounder.
  • For the first time in I don't know how many games, Romain Martin failed to score in double figures. This mostly has to do with Julio Anthony's increase in offensive production, and the increase in minutes given to Harmon. To be quite honest I am not comfortable with the amount of minutes Harmon is getting, but he needs them in preparation for next year, when the team will be very good.
  • A student on campus asked me if I would be around next year?

Re: The Coaching Career of Jon McGurk(CH2K7-360)

You seem to have the offense in high gear scoring 102 points in each of the last two games. However, your defense has allowed 92 and 93 points in the last two games. Anthony has been hot the last two games as well.

Do you expect to see many more of these slugfests?

Re: The Coaching Career of Jon McGurk(CH2K7-360)

Thanks for checking in Coach Knight. I expect plenty more slugfests as long as opposing teams let us play our style of fast-break, high tempo offense. I am just glad that we are sticking with our own gameplan this year, so far. All of those hi/low-half scoring games almost put me in a loony bin last year. Now maybe if we could play defense for two halves, teams wouldn't be scoring as much against us. We struggle a bit against 1-3-1, and Man defenses from time to time and our games against Austin Peay have been pretty low scoring, so we'll see how it goes the rest of the season.

Coach's Notes
  • The best defensive effort of the year. It got so bad for the Governors, that the Boo-Birds made quite a few appearances. It was music to our ears. You know we are blowing out an opponent when a big man, who we run no plays for, is the leading scorer of the game.
  • Next up is Kentucky. They are ranked #9 in the nation. I don't know how it's not better than that.

Coach's Notes
  • Before I start let me give you an idea of what we were up against: Randolph Morris, First Team All-Conference. Ebi Ngounou, 4th ranked recruit overall, second at his position. Byron Israel, 6th ranked recruit overall, 3rd at his position. Joe Crawford, one of the most explosive SGs in the nation. And 6'6" Point Guard Derrick Jasper. Not to mention the fact that they're all freakishly tall.
  • That being said, we didn't do too bad! Thanks to the gritty play of Romain Martin, the score at one point was 48-50 Kentucky thanks to a 15-2 run. We had two opportunities to either tie it or take the lead after that, but I think reality set in and from that point on it was all Kentucky, but at least we made it interesting for 29 minutes. A dead silent Kentucky crowd is a sight to behold.
  • Romain Martin came out and played super-agressive, making contact with the defender on almost every shot. He went 15-17 at the free-throw line and put Joe Crawford in foul trouble.
  • After a failed man to man experiment, we switched to 3-2 Zone and it was working!...Until they realized their big men were at least 3 inches taller than our big men. They pounded and pounded inside but there was no way I was going to switch to 2-3 Zone.
  • Ebi Ngounou was surprisingly ineffective tonight.

Coach's Notes
  • I've really gotta hand it to the Racers, they dug in and stayed with us for as long as they could. Their 1-3-1 Zone defense, which we have all sorts of problems with, really gave me and my players a head ache.
  • The reason we won the game was because of Jerrold Harmon and Ousmane Cisse. It didn't matter that we were down by as many as 7 midway through the first half, Harmon kept a level head and was absolutely fearless on the court. He was 6/8 from three point range, hitting most of them to keep us right at MSU when they had the lead for a while early in the game. Ousmane and Schachtner battled all game long. Though it looked like Cisse was losing the battle early, being rejected twice in a row, he bounced back and kept fighting. He had 5 offensive rebounds and finished with 14 points.
  • MSU did a really good job breaking our press until the last ten minutes of the game, when we pulled away huge. If you only watched the first 3/4 of the game, you wouldn't believe the final score.

  • A very sloppy game.
  • The subs played almost all of the second half.
  • Catchings has earned himself way more playing time than he's getting. Very very solid performances the last two games. Tonight he had 15 points in 15 minutes and was 4/8 from beyond the arc.

Coach's Notes
  • We were pretty lucky to get away with a win here. Samford really did their homework on us. They used 1-3-1 Match-up Zone almost exclusively and I've already made it clear how much trouble we have against that defense. They also used a 3-2 Zone, which up to this point we have seen very little of. They slowed the pace of the game way, way, way down, were patient on offense, broke our press almost the entire game, and didn't panic when our press worked on them. We shot out to an early 25-13 lead and the score stayed that way for a good 6 minutes. They got as close as 5 points when it was 47-42 in the second half, but that is as close as they got.
  • Jerrold Harmon hit a 45 footer at the halftime buzzer, and Romain Martin hit a three at the end game buzzer. Those six points were huge, no matter when they happened in the game.
  • Savoy Fraine is going to be one heck of a player in the next two years. He is the one player besides Frey who gave us absolute fits the entire game.
  • Julio Anthony had an off night, but it was offset by Mike Robinson, who had more scoring opportunities going against the 1-3-1.
