Man am I glad I saved that season ticket money this year. Ganot is sadly at end of his rope. Thank him for his time and move on to a new coach, new system, new recruiter, new scheduling. Would love to see excitement return to SSC
One thing that I don't think gets talked about enough is the upside of not having to play McClanahan. Pick & roll just hasn't worked well with him at the point because his height makes it difficult to make teams pay for helping on the pick by hitting the 5 rolling to the basket. We fall behind on the shotclock and the ball spends too much time in the backcourt. The coaches finally accepted this and switched to Munoz starting a few weeks ago. The injury to Jovon has made this even more clear.

Yeah, I picked up on the small guard unable to properly perform the pick and roll in the Bakersfield game twice with Bernardo da Silva rolling alone to the basket and three players trapping the guard.
It's interesting how even though Munoz is only a few inches taller than Jovon, he's able to hit Da Silva on the roll at least a couple times a game, and it keeps the defense from doubling the ball without fear. Even Kody's quick first step to the basket creates a better passing lane and makes the offense a bit more effective. Jovon is like a short QB who needs to get outside the pocket to be effective, but is being schemed out of doing that by the defense.
