Great bounce back win Saturday. I realize it should never have gotten to overtime with the bad call on BA's 3 but I wondered if anyone had thoughts as to why MM chose not to call a time out in regulation as the shot clock got down to less than 10 seconds when BA had his pass intended for Choh stolen at the top of the key.

That possession was crucial and the offense that Brown was running on that possession was stagnant - Everyone at a standstill..

It's a fair question. There's the debate around whether or not you set up but give the opposition a chance to set their defense. Or if you rely on your players' instincts and catch the defense off guard a little. Given the talent Brown has, and the ability of this team to make individual plays, I think it's smart to let them run some. If you think about some big last minute plays Brown has had in the last few seasons, including Hunsaker going coast-to-coast vs. Dartmouth, they've come when MM has let them go. In this case, given how the play seemed to be stunted even before that intercepted pass, a time out probably would have been the move. 20/20, etc.

Agreed Bruno... I def wouldn't have called it after the initial change of possession or even prior to the D being set up. On that particular play - as you mentioned about the 20/20 lens, a time out to set up a Slob play might have helped.

Love this team..

Yes. Believe he had 2 at that point.
