I mean Reggie was racking offensive rebounds earlier this season, thats how hard he was fighting for rebounds. So, we're pretty bad rebounding team without him anyway.
We played the zone well, don't get me wrong. I was making a remark to the fact that weaker teams usually play zone.
Thats true. I remember seeing your post about the zone defense and weak teams and argued that the zone defense isn't meant for weak teams. But your post now cleared it up for me. Its true that weaker teams usually go zone more than the other teams mostly because they can't match up talent, strength, and speed wise.
