Of course Katz' and Co blow a must win road game against the worst team in the BSC.
It'll be interesting to see how next year goes and if Orr wants to go in a new direction with MBB after the 20-21 season.
Also heard Bunky has 2 years left on his contract. Given that everyone returns for the Hornets on the women's side, expectations should be significantly higher next year.
OK, if Harkleroad's got 2 years, he should be safe. They aren't as bad as they were last year. It'll be interesting to see if they go back to the full Westhead style next year or if they keep the more moderate approach.
If the Hornet men sweep the Montanas at home, they'll clinch a non-losing season. Would Sac really fire a MBB coach after a non-losing season, given their history?
The WBBs issue is lack of depth. We had a couple of injuries that hurt, but the talent level really drops off a cliff when the top guns go out for a breather. I like the pace of play this season rather than the jack up a ton of shots as fast as you can in past years.
MBB will be interesting. The output under Katz has been frustrating. In most cases, the Hornets play to their opponents level for better or for worse. For every win over a Weber or UM, there is a loss tosub par/under preforming team (Idaho, ISU, NAU this year). If Katz could just win the games he should win, this team would consistently be around 500 and a middle of the road BSC program, which is more than acceptable IMO given the facilities issue.
More frustrating is constantly seeing a Katz coach team fall behind big early, and failing to hold big leads. That has been a hallmark his entire tenure. I think it really boils down to what Orr wants to do. Personally I can go either way on keeping him or not.
