    I hope we beat them, but they are good. They have a deep bench too. The only thing we have over them is experience. They seem to rely heavily on freshman guards too, I know we have one too but they have 2 starting guards that are freshman. Wouldn’t it be embarrassing enough for them to lose to a team ranked 25th?

    Thanks for that stat! That’s crazy but I thought it was that large of a discrepancy. That’s got to improve or we will have trouble winning our remaining games on the road. I can 10 to 15 points but not 30.

    I will still say we didn’t play well against Minnesota, lucky to have won that game. Also, I think When Geronimo was starting, there was more movement and less clogging the lane than Race starting and I think it affected the way Geronimo played as well as the rest of the team. Race should not have started, period. Also, I bet Bates and Galloway’s 3 point percentage at home is significantly higher than on the road, probably 30 points higher. Does someone have that stat? It should be closer than what it is.

    And yet Battle scored 20 points!

    I don’t think he earned it back, I think they just gave it back to him because he a very experienced player and they were playing in Minnesota in front of friends and family. I for one don’t agree with it because JG has been starting during this 3 game winning streak and they beat those 3 teams by double digits. His confidence was high and something like this can wreck it and hurt the chemistry on the team. It was clear to me that Race’s mobility wasn’t there and he’s still not 100%. Plus this team didn’t play well prior to his injury and they didn’t play well last night. There wasn’t much energy and focus last night. I can’t help to think it was because Race got inserted into the starting lineup, which may have disrupted the team dynamics and chemistry

    Xavier and Race

    I agree too! I think this current starting 5 seems to get off to better starts too!

    I realize that, I was making a point about the 3 game slide and role players not expanding their roles. It had nothing to do with how poorly we played against Arizona Rutgers. I do agree though, we definitely played poorly in those games with a full roster. Include the Kansas game too, even though we lost X. We weren’t playing D then either in those 3 games. But I was mainly talking about guys not stepping up in that 3 game losing streak in the B10

    I actually heard that from many coaches is the fact that Edey don’t get fouls called on him. I think those coaches are being sarcastic, eluding to the fact that the refs seem to swallow their whistles when it comes to him fouling and getting away with it.

    I think they will when those two freshman guards hit their freshman wall and they will. They should have lost to Nebraska and Michigan State.

    Because we had lost X but then losing the glue guy (Race) set this team back mentally and guys didn’t know how to step up from their current roles. Then things turned around for 2 reasons, 1) TJD had a players only meeting; 2) CMW started coaching them when the leadership wasn’t doing it.

    If we can beat Michigan State on Sunday, I think this team can win the next 3 games after that leading up to the Purdue game, that would put us at 7-4. Purdue will eventually come back to the pack, those 2 freshman will hit their freshman wall!

    That’s right, I forgot! I hope he doesn’t come back. He’s a load to guard

    He might if he becomes the National Player of the Year. Plus, if I were an NBA GM, I would take a chance and draft him in the first round. He’s hard to guard one on one.

    And their freshman will eventually hit the freshman wall
