He certainly can influence things on the court. You don't have a zillion time outs to call. But you do have strategies during clock time. There are changes to the plays, just like a FB team can go simple, to get things righted. And as a team under Brad, we certainly do have these a lot.
Teams that can stop scoring slumps are going to win a National Championship. That is a transcending attribute of a team to "find points".
Nearly every team has slumps. UVA had one last night just before half time. They had a big one in the previous game.
Slumps, lulls as well as scoring runs/spurts are a part of the game. Managing those, making adjustments etc are a coaching item, but slumps can be a lot of things: turnovers, bad shot selection, or even just rubbish luck (missed layups/putbacks)
Actually most teams have been even more slump prone (with a rise of the 3 usage). Have you watched a wake game over the past 10 years? They could go on close to 10 minute long slumps. Even OP's teams were slump prone especially if forced into half-court play - go watch that Villinova game. We jumped out and then basically generated nothing for about 8 minutes across the half.
You can basically look at nearly any game (Save Gtwn vs Nova in 84) and every "losing" side will have a slump. Even the winning team will likely have a slump. Sometimes if another team becomes hot, you will see those slumps because it might change shot selection - and those are killers. Very rarely do you have a scenario where both sides score consistently - and the team that avoids the slumps consistently will be a NC contender. Of course if you score like crazy you can have a team like Baylor that overcomes slumps because over the course of the game their PPP is unreal

When most teams get in a slump or late game situation, they have one guy that they can give it to for a bucket or get to the foul line. Brownell has never recruited that guy. All of our players are about the same level other than PJ Hall, but he's not taking someone off the dribble from top of the key......
Can’t coach, problems and never get fixed are a sign of poor coaching. I’m sure the judge will be quick to point out special-teams problems for Tommy Bowden that never got fixed, they were present during his entire tenure at Clemson, And he simply didn’t know what to do
