A very startling trend from the last 2-3 games seems to be loose ball rebounds. The ball may or may not fall in the paint area. I see 2-3 KU jerseys standing around watching the ball outside the paint and one opponent chasing after lose balls/rebounds.
They don't seem to know who will rebound. It's great when two KU players fight for a rebound and one finally emerges. But I see too many times when they fight or struggle only to lose it right into the hands of an opponent who ultimately scores. I saw that a lot against this Michigan team, around the Michigan rim. I saw it against La Salle, Radford and UCLA. I find this trend alarming going into conference play.
This game was a nasty case of bad passes and turnovers all around.
I see a lot of errant alley oop passes.
Will someone take control of this team and show some defensive rebounding hustle? We need to see a scraper come out and earn his "floor burns". We've always had someone who wasn't a big scorer or rebounder, but was always around the hustling after the ball. LET'S SEE THOSE "BURNS" BOYS!!!
I truly believe part is this is caused by all the different combinations we are running. Trying to play 9 to 11 deep means we are going to have many different lineups on the floor and let's face it, everyone moves differently, some stand more, some move a lot, some set screens, others don't as much. Let's face the truth .. we are just not a great team because we have great players .. as the season goes along we should get more use to the different conbinations. But its going to take time,sadly. The only other choice is two different starting 5's, which I never expect to be used. And probably shouldn't be used. We still don't have a true starting 5, we have a starting 3 with changes for the other two spots ( I expect this to be resolved soon ). I do believe we will be the Great team expected with these players .. its just going to take a little time.
