1. Morgan did have a good game. He took 25% of your teams shots and shot 50% (55% from inside the ARC). What were you expecting? The A in IQ was going to limit his fouls.
2. The SF on the Center experiment really hurt you. Your SF didn't play good defense and you got killed on the boards. I've tried doing things like that in the past as well and it rarely works. I suspect the the SB rating is more important than you (and I) think it is for interior defense. If I had to guess the interior defensive score is something like (DEF*2 + ATH+ SB) with IQ thrown in there somehow. Martz is the better interior defender in my opinion, by a significant margin.
I thought Morgan would just DESTROY that PG. Utterly destroy him. The whole Rothman-on-Brewer thing was almost an afterthought I had. I debated whether to put Martz or Rothman on him, but Rothman's so high defensively, and I wanted the SF matchup for Martz that I went the way I did with it. Sounds like I outsmarted myself. Still, the frustration that comes with banging your head against the conference tournament wall season after season after season is just really starting to overwhelm the enjoyment I get from recruiting and constructing a good team. Seems like I never get that one break I need to get over the hump in the CT.
