Dave on why he did not play John Bunch in the second half Tuesday night at LIU

Dave - "I stayed with him the whole first half basically because he was our whole offense, he was keeping us in the game.

""They were bascially spreading it with five guys on the perimeter. At that point in the time in the first half I figured 'Lets just keep going inside.'' If we're getting an automatic two (from Bunch), hopefully we'll continue to guard the 3 better and take our chances. We got back in the game.

""At the start of the second half we were scoring (without Bunch). So I felt, if I was going to put John in it would have been for offense.

""The fact we were having no problem scoring - I felt we needed to get stops and he would not have been effective on the defensive end because they would have five guys on the perimeter.

""We extended out and were able to guard them more. Maybe our guards who were supposed to be guarding guys who couldn't shoot, thought John was going to be back there to block, I don't know (Calloway being sarcastic there).

"Defense is guarding the man with the ball and rebounding. We didn't guard the man with the ball. The number one thing in defense.''

I'm satisfied with the answer.Listen,we were up by 3 with 4 play.It comes down to good D,stops,FT,etc,etc.
