I had hoped BC would use the Big Ten-ACC Challenge as spring board. Instead it was more frustration as BC lost to Nebraska 71-62. The game really turned when Deontae Hawkins went down with a leg injury. (He was on crutches when he came out of the lockerrom.) I know there is still plenty of time and the young guys will get better, but there were so many issues that concern me.
1. The 3-point shooting. 4 for 22 from deep. They forced some bad shots and were way off on many. If it is not falling, the team and coaches should know better than to force things.
2. The Defensive rotations. I know the announcers applauded some of the rotations, but I thought they were flawed. Nebraska had way too many easy shots.
3. Turnovers. Traveling and sloppy passes. BC shot themselves in the foot.
BC know has to hope for a little redemption against Hartford. If Hawkins can't go, who knows what will happen.
