Oregon State Fails To Exploit Seattle In the Paint In Loss

With the University of Washington center Matthew Bryan-Amaning looking on at KeyArena, among the most noticeable things about Oregon State's loss to Seattle University tonight is that they failed to establish a consistent post game against a smaller team.

Unfortunately, the Beavers were unable to establish that in tonight's 83-80 loss, as described by Andy over at Building the Dam.

Against Seattle, any team needs to make it a game in the paint, taking advantage of the Redhawks' lack of length. When the Beavers did, they were able to dictate terms. However, they couldn't or didn't do it consistently.

Beyond whatever questions might exist about the zone, why they weren't able to establish a post game against a team that is definitely vulnerable in the paint is a question OSU must answer looking ahead to Pac-10 play.
