Had we of pressed 2 minutes earlier, we probably would've won by double digits. Tennesee looked like a high school team dribbling the ball against our press. So my question is: why don't we press more?

I understand we don't want to wear Sherron out, but I would think we could get Taylor, Johnson, Morningstar, and Reed to press and be quite effective.

Most games we won't need to press, but against teams of comparable talent, it could come in handy I would think...

Because Self is a half-court coach. But your point is certainly well taken, and with our depth it would seem we could afford to do so.... maybe not full-time, but at least on dead balls and foul shots.

We can't guard in the 1/2 court,
you want us to try it full court?
