Welcome back to Friends With Bennies, where we sit down with opposing bloggers to talk about their team. Today it's Andrew from Casual Hoya. I answered a few questions for him, which you can find here.
TheUConnBlog: Otto Porter. He's very good. What's the best way for UConn to make him less good?
Casual Hoya: You can start by praying to the high heavens, but since you have been left out of the ultra-casual and hip Catholic 7 clique I'm not sure where you will find your salvation. The obvious answer is to look to double Otto off the ball, but Georgetown does such a nice job of getting him good looks off screens and he's been so good from the perimeter this season that he's going to get his points. To make him less good and increase your chances of winning I'd probably consider going zone and making the Hoyas beat the Huskies from the perimeter or down low. As we've seen a number of times this season and in the beginning of the Syracuse game, the Hoyas offense tends to sputter at times, and UConn is going to need to capitalize when it does.
But to directly answer your question, you have no chance to stop Otto Porter.
TUB: I think it's obvious to anyone with eyes that Kevin Ollie should be the Big East Coach of the Year. You disagree. Is that because you lack eyes, or can you give me some reasons why I'm wrong?
