Dear HCBS,

It is of the best interest to the team to avoid bringing a double team when someone is trying to post up Cole.

It would be one thing in a game where the opposing big men are talented, and capable of winning a 1v1 matchup versus Cole in the paint on a semi-frequent basis...but we've been doubling up on guys that average maybe 4 points a game and have very weak interior offensive skills.

Cole has proven time and again that he is capable of playing GREAT defense while not fouling. (unless you keep sending him to hedge 40 feet from the basket...please stop that as well...)   Keeping the floor spread, instead of doubling should also help us rebound on the defensive glass and could translate into some fastbreak points going the other way.

Bringing help over has resulted in lots of open shots for the other team. We were fortunate against KSU and MU that they were unable to hit anything...and we all know they had their fair share of open looks. If we continue to do this into the postseason...sooner or later we're going to play someone that hits their shots and we'll be in trouble.

I'm all for defensive pressure...but if the ball is in the hands of a guy that only scores 4 a game...why are we doubling and forcing him to pass to others who are more potent offensively...?

Thanks,
