    Look at all these so called coaches winning games with less than 75% of points made from 3. It’s laughable. Yes, Purdue beat Tennessee yesterday but with only 4 3-pointers! Basically that means Matt Painter lost to Tennessee. Musselman’s Arkansas team had 2 OTs to pile on the 3 pointers against Stanford. His team only hit 5 in 50 minutes of play. Their win, also a loss. Don’t get me started on Bill Self. 4 3’s?! That’s it?? While they scored more points today, clearly they actually lost with such few points from 3. Coach Bennett at UVa? What a trash human. His team only hit 4/18 3’s against lowly UWv. That well run institution will surely be firing Bennett shortly. A win without many 3’s do not count. Dusty May? What a clown with a November loss. This board is very insightful. Thank you so much for wonderful knowledge about 3 point > win/loss.

    Duke the 35 point favorite over Bucknell in a close one with Filipowski potentially injured seriously just now

    Perhaps spoke too soon on Pitt…up by 10 at the half. Nova finds itself down though! And same with #12 Miami against a winless FIU

    FGCU hanging around Pitt @ Pitt late in the first half with Pitt up 33-30 at the under 4. Of course, FGCU who went 13-34 from deep against us is just 2-10 in the first half. Also of note, #21 Villanova potentially on upset alert to Penn.

    IUBB vs Marian (exhib) Friday, 11.03.23 @ 6:30 on BTN+

    They beat Marian in exhibition by 36, St Francis in exhibition by 45 and their first two regular season games by 35 and 50 points
  7. I agree. People really jumping off the ship because of the *first half* of the *first exhibition* game with an entirely new roster from the prior year. The 2012-13 B1G champs team that returned Zeller & Oladipo was down by 9 in the first half to Indiana Wesleyan and the 2015-16 B1G champs team with Yogi, Bryant, Blackmon, & OG only won their second exhibition by 11, being out scored in the 2nd half.
  8. Seems like very weak PC in the police report. Any halfway decent defender and judge would see that.
  9. Potentially, but I guess I meant on the glass. Seemed like Miami got a lot of 2nd/3rd opportunities that on paper it seems they’d lack the size to do
  10. Yeah, I really wonder what’s going on with TJD. I know he got a hip pointer in the last game….did they give him something for it and he’s just totally out of it now? (Joking but also maybe not given how odd this feels from him)
  11. They seem to have hit him in the crotch in the opening and then drive at him thereafter

    Mike Woodson and His Coaching Staff

    I really like CMW as a person and basketball mind. Here’s a thread on Twitter that discusses but one example of in-game adjustments and coaching:
  13. In the B1G, it seems like Miami’s profile is most similar to Iowa: Guard driven offense, don’t play much defense, have some big wins (beat Duke by 20 a month ago), but some bad losses including a recent quad 4 loss to FSU at the end of the season and a quad 3 loss to Georgia Tech earlier. One thing to note, though, is Miami’s 3 pt percentage is strong but do not shoot it nearly as often as Iowa (100 fewer attempts this season). Miami guards are trying to step in for mid range jumpers or get to the rim. This will be a tough fast paced one for IU, but if we are to face a guard centric power conference team then Miami would be the one play, on paper anyways.
  14. I think the general point, though, is that Kent State's defense is about what IU's defense is. Kent St's slightly better ranked 38th (vs 43 for IU) in the country by KenPom; it's not a crazy top 5 defense. That Houston scored so few points, but managed to dominate the glass and win the game against a defense marginally better than IU's either means Houston either had a uniquely awful shooting performance on their Thanksgiving break game or Houston is not very good. And I would tend to agree with posters that say the former explanation is more likely.
