Why press then?

Those of us at the USI-Bellarmine men’s basketball game on Thursday night should have been surprised to see the Knights pressing USI in the final seconds of the game. The Eagles had it all sown up, so why the press? My guess is that Bellarmine coach Scotty Davenport wanted to get his team above 50 points. Not scoring 50 points in a game is pretty embarrassing, I guess, especially for a team used to scoring more than 70 a contest.Turns out that Bellarmine hadn’t been held to that low a point total in almost three years. Still, a press against USI’s end-of-the-bench subs seemed pretty petty. Then again, USI coach Rodney Watson probably was grateful. Those subs got to work against something they would rarely see in a game.
