    That's the misleading part. Minus the games against zone teams they are lighting it up from outside. They've shredded every team that has tried to A) press them and B) play them in man.

      When you take out the five games against exclusive zones, IUP's three-point percentage eclipses 40 percent.

      Against zones they are shooting the paltry 30-127 from deep (23.6%)
      Against all other teams they are shooting 209-519 (40.2%)

      That's just a substantial difference.

        The problem with that theory in IUP's case, as Fairmont found out the very hard way, is against teams that play like FSU, IUP can torch them from both the outside and pummel them from the inside. IUP massacred Fairmont under the basket. That was men versus boys.

        Against two other regional-level teams who play exclusive man, IUP mixed the inside-outside to perfection -- East Stroudsburg (14 made treys) and Shippensburg (11 made treys).

        They hit 37% to 40% of their treys in March and they will be nasty (and the favorite to win the region) -- minus if they get matched up with Mercyhurst. Somehow in a decade IUP still acts like they are seeing that junk Triangle and Two for the first time -- every time.

          Seems like the genesis for a game plan vs IUP...Play zone and make IUP's shooters try and beat you from outside. As you pointed out is a previous post, IUP's shooters are taking more outside shots than their shooting % might dictate.

            Maybe BUT is Joe purposely not using the post action because he wants to save it? The few times they used it against zones it was dominant. Trying to stop those trees at the high and low post wasn't possible against Cal but they didn't use it much or purposely didn't use it. I guess we'll soon see.

              Possibly. However, those teams run the zone year-round. Most teams aren't going to effectively master a zone defense with a day or two prep.

                  That would be like Ben telling WL not to play defense because they 'ain't that good at it'

                              Awkward. IUP forgot to bring their uniforms to tonight’s game in Edinboro. So IUP (pictured) will be wearing Edinboro’s old red unis. Edinboro will be in Edinboro white
