This team's confidence just took a massive hit tonight.

I think the offense looked anemic with UCR. Nobody can really take it to the basket. There was a double team on Mike Thomas and a block out on Gibson as well. It seems like too that Buggs doesn't move the ball up very quickly on offense allowing the other teams defense to set up. No real three point shooter except for Purchase. Other teams in the BWC seem to hit the threes like its going out of style so the "D" is slow getting to the shooter. There was a point when Thomas was at the foul line open and he chose to take a shot instead of driving to the hole. One highlight of last night was Samuta Avea. Aggressive on the rebounds and pushed the ball up court.

Can UH regain its confidence? Does Ganot lack the ability to motivate? Because this team's confidence is as alive as Elvis.

You may be right punahou. For one thing they don't have a three point shooter other than Purchase who is brought in just for that purpose. They don't go for the three when they are down by 10 and its the end of the game. Drammeh fouls a three point shooter for the second time in four games. You think the coaches would talk to him and tell him never, never foul on a three pointer. They don't play with intensity so Avea is the guy to pick up the pace. At this point, much different from the time this thread started, I don't think Hawaii has too much to worry about in losing a coach.

We managed to beat UC-Irvine, one of the better Big West teams, on the road and not blow a double-digit lead. One can hope that this'll give us confidence.

Couple of things about the game. UCI was not hitting the threes until the 2nd half. Their 3 point percentage was below 20%. Big difference from the other teams Hawaii played. Ganot played situational basketball in the last couple of minutes by substituting Purchase-Johnson based on offense/defense. There was close to 9 minutes in the second half where neither team scored. There is no go to guy on Hawaii. Hawaii went from 100% three pointers to less than 30% threes. They started with 80% FG to below 50% FG. The end result is Eran's ability to sub in the right people helped Hawaii win this. I like the fact that other people take the threes including Mike Thomas and Gibson Johnson to make the other team come out to them in case they start hitting. Also their top rebounder was in foul trouble the entire night.

Unbelievable win by the Bows against UCR. Big, big game for Sheriff Drammeh with 5 for 6 from the three point line. And, the thing is, it wasn't just in the first half or the second half, it was spread out throughout the game. And, they were missing Mike Thomas and Gibson Johnson, their best rebounders, inside men were out for most of the game. Sign of good coaching.
