What we are seeing in Stephens' game is similar to the way he played last year, and it is a function of the lack of reliable offensive options around him. Other than Cannady, no one else consistently puts pressure on the defense. In his breakout season the game came to him and he was able to take maximum advantage, leading the Tigers in scoring in Ivy play on a team that featured the Ivy POY and runner-up. Almost all of his scoring now is the product of going one-on-one, the antithesis of an offense based on ball and player movement. Our defensive futility brings to mind a famous observation made by John McKay, Tampa Bay Bucs coach, during the Bucs' inaugural 0-16 season. He was asked about the execution of his team's defense. McKay replied, "I'm in favor of it."
