HOW TO BEAT
WHEN THE BULLDOGS HAVE THE BALL
They are an unbelievable dribble-drive team. They can attack you from four spots, and they also run tremendous ball screens. Whatever you do defensively, they will have counters for it. They are effective on the offensive boards because they all crash from the perimeter. You can't give them second-chance points, and you can't give them extra opportunities to run their offense.
ATTACKING THE BULLDOGS' DEFENSE
You have to make them move. You have to try to get the ball to the interior. It's hard to do that on the initial side that you enter; you have to get the ball reversed. You must put Matt Howard in some action and try to get him in foul trouble. Then you have to overcome their two guards, who are bulldogs defensively. You have to try to go to the offensive glass, but that's easier said than done against these guys.
Zach Hahn (above), who comes off the bench, is a good three-point shooter and can be dangerous.
