I think the Dayton loss was as much about Dunn getting two fouls in the first 90 seconds. That flagrant one was a killer. Never seemed to adjust or look right to me.
We had size, but USC and UNC have athletes who just happen to be 6'10 and 6'11.
While true, last year Bentil got in foul trouble in two big games, Villanova BET and UNC in the tournament, and the guy asked to guard Ochefu and Hicks (some by design, some by switch) was Lindsey.
And while the foul trouble stunk for Dunn against Dayton, he still played 33 minutes in that game. It affected some of the flow in the 1st half, but the reality is that team did not know how to take it to the shorter, but more athletic Flyers. I think Dunn was stuffed at the rim multiple times, Desroisiers couldn't post up, etc.
