    College Bball Thread

    Iowa’s zone is so bad. They look like 5 random guys who’ve never practiced it together.

    Watching the Pacers play Detroit always makes me nuts. There is not a single guy in the Pacers’ rotation that Luke Kennard can defend. Not one. And yet they just don’t put his guy in actions. His guy should be in every action. I don’t get it, I don’t get It, I don’t get it.

    Would love to know what family process is in place that results in a kid committing 3 years out. If I would have told my parents that I was ready to commit to a college at 15 years old, my father wouldn’t have even looked up from his WSJ and my mom would have just said, “No you’re not, honey.”

    Couple of things on this: 1) It’s December, everyone’s still figuring it out. 2) FSU beat Florida on the road and gave up 51. They beat Tenn and gave up 57. Purdue managed 60 in 45 mins. IU won’t play a better ball pressure team this year, not 1, and put 80 on them without the only primary ball handler on the roster. That is a very good win.

    Couple of interesting items for Saturday watching Wisconsin: 1) they’re allowing a lot of dribble penetration to NC St. And not just to Markell Johnson, all of State’s guards are getting to the rim easily. 2) They really have no physical matchup for Jericole Hellems. If I’m Archie watching Davison trying to deal with Hellems I’m looking to scheme as many touches for Smith in the midpost as I can.

    Agree, they were fine. Though some of the weird randomness of the local announcers has it’s appeal. The guys who did the couple of Luke Brown/Blackford games I watched last year were pretty fun in that, “2 half drunk dudes at the bar” sort of way. Plus, your assessment of Furst’s night was pretty spot on.

    Not to be overly hyperbolic, but live streaming of HS basketball games may be the the most significant advancement in human history. Not gun powder. Not long distance sailing ships. Not flight. This right here. Freaking love it.
  8. I won’t be watching today’s game until later tonight. So I freely stipulate that I’m talking out of my a** a little here. But I think the point you make about Franklin is an important thing to keep in mind. He might have exceeded some expectations so far, but if Phinisee and Green had been healthy all fall he’d be playing 8 mins a game and certainly wouldn’t be getting significant minutes against an FSU. He’s not ready to be a rotation guy yet. But his time will come.

    You nodded off at the end of, what, a 14hr game day!?!? Your lack of commitment sickens me.

    Allen, not close for me.
  11. https://basketballrecruiting.rivals.com/news/wednesday-s-leftovers-kentucky-s-next-move-unc-more Had to post this for the awesome, not to be missed, IU insight. Wait, on 2nd thought, no, it says absolutely nothing and I don’t get why he bothered to answer the question unless he’s paid by the word.

    Yup, and it definitely cuts both ways. Saw Aminu Mohammed twice last year against a couple of small town schools and those kids looked at him like he was an alien. Gotta confess: I get a major kick out of watching really great kids against kids who.....aren’t.

    So funny that you post this. I saw Layton’s numbers last year and he’s maybe 90 minutes from me. Thought I might check him out if I was bored enough. Asked a friend who knows MO hoops better than I do if I should and he started laughing and said, “yeah he’s like 5 ft nothin’ and his team looks like a gym class.”

    (2020) SG Trey Galloway To IU

    Starting to feel like PG might be in his future. Handle would have to tighten up and the jumper will need to get more consistent either way. But the kid really sees the floor and processes so quickly. Plus his length and instincts defending smaller PG’s would make him a tough matchup. He flat smothered Jalen Blackmon. Be curious to watch his development.
  15. Don’t agree with you this time sir. I don’t think he’s been good at all. And Tech is so small that Archie could have created post matchups through TJD while also creating more space to drive by playing smaller.
