Really? Consistently hitting shots with a hand in your face feels very NBA to me, but perhaps he lacks enough pure athleticism

Iím a terrible judge of talent

Am I correct in thinking both of these teams are really well coached? If so, how good can Michigan be next year, given that they are pulling in the No. 1 recruiting class? Or are they only so coachable because they have so many seniors right now?

Both coaches are really good. Holtmann has been the best coach in the big ten since he got to the league imo and Howard brought a lot of great sets from his time as an NBA assistant.

On Liddell the shooting this year helps but he's still a heavy 6'7" guy without great athleticism who gets most of his offense around the basket and isn't an elite defender. He's too slow to guard wings at the next level and gets bullied by bigger college centers pretty regularly.

In other words, an NBA starter a couple of decades ago, but now, meh. That makes sense.

Yeah as a PF circa like 2001 he'd probably be okay but that position doesn't really exist now and I don't think his defense is good enough to hold up as a small ball center or a wing.

Congratulations! Your bonsai is dead!

One of the real big "What Ifs" of college basketball is what would have happened if NC State hadn't hosed up the negotiations with Beilein so badly that everything fell apart right as he was ready to sign the contract, touching off a series of deeply embarrassing fuckups that left them with only Sidney Lowe to take the job.

Of course, that would've required NC State not to have hired the ridiculous idiot they had in place then as AD, so...

sparty is channeling '88 pistons in this game. two people fouled out and a third ejected.

I want to root against Illinois but gently caress MSU makes it feel so gross. They are the dirtiest team every year and refs usually let it go because they're scared of Izzo.

We are getting a really generous whistle in the first half so I canít wait for it to flip completely around in the second and for Doug Shows to really hammer us. But Iím enjoying Ethan Henderson getting some good minutes on the floor!

I was worried about going to Penn St, but this is Purdue's most complete game in a few weeks. They are playing good defense and scoring at will in the paint.

Ask me how to run a good team into the ground.

Seems like Purdue always struggles at Penn St; glad to see that tonight has been different.

I guess they're used to playing in empty and quiet arenas this season.

People might look at you a bit funny, but it's okay. MVPs are allowed to be a bit different


Watching Iowa - OSU and normally I like when both teams wear their color jerseys but this just looks like butt. Either Iowa needs to look less like mustard or OSU needs to look more like ketchup.

Pretty good bounce back! Defense has actually been a lot better over the last month outside the second half of the Michigan game. It's not, like, good, but better!
