Less than one hour after Gannon lost at California tonight, 62-55, I received the following e-mail:
"I just listened to the Gannon game and I am upset. Does Reilly know how to coach. He has the talent but doesn't know how to use it. Corey should be playing more and there were times that there was no 3 point shooters in the game when we needed them most. Gannon needs a coach."
Funny how Reilly knew how to coach as recently as last year (26-5). Heck, he knew how to coach as recently as last weekend when GU went 2-0 on the road. The Knights shot 37% from the field vs. Cal. Seems like execution lost this game, not strategy. (At least as far as I can tell sitting at my computer in Erie tonight. It's difficult -- no, it's impossible -- to draw conclusions after only listening to a game on the radio. That's why when coaches scout they either go to the game or break down film. They don't break down audio.)
Also, I'm trying to figure out a Gannon lineup that would have "no three-point shooters in the game." The only one I could come up with was Preston Harris, Alphonso Scandrett, Mark Demski, Dave Wilson and ... um, that's only four players. Actually, I couldn't come up with one.
I respectfully disagree with the e-mailer, but I appreciate his interest in Gannon Hoops.
