can someone give a recap of the game? I was away.
B10 Basketball Open Thread
Minnesota essentially dominant until about 5 minutes left (largest lead around 10). Have turned it over repeatedly since including a bunch of awful passes that led to fast break points.
12 to 1 TO margin (Minn vs MSU)....in the seconds half...seemed like they were all in the last 5 min where MSU essentially went on what seemed like a 12 point run
terrible, terrible foul
Minny should go for the win. They stand no chance in OT.
Wow classic chock job, I'm guessing an ugly heave here to lose. Just ugly, ugly, ugly last 5 minutes by Minny.
So what was that. 4 consecutive turnovers on offense and a foul at the top of the three point line with 3 seconds left on the shot clock?
Minnesota is an extremely flawed team. no PG play. no interior play besides sampson
Sure, MSU plays good defense. But Minnesota is a team full of guys scared to shoot. They stand around for 25 second. Nobody moves to the ball. Then somebody chucks it up. Their passing/ballhandling is awful. This is a poorly coached team.
Minnesota needs heimlich maneuver because theyre choking. Please just make a 3 and win it.
Granted, this would be just be gravy, since we all were expecting MSU's loss to come next week, but come on Minnesota . . . this is just pathetic.
Lol really!? A contested 3 with 20 seconds left? What a joke of a program.
That can't be the way they drew that up in the huddle.
That entire last two minutes by minnesota was GARBAGE
Why in the HELL would you shoot that? Have 20 seconds in the game and no shot clock. Awful, awful, awful, decision.
Wow. Sparty is playing great defense, but that shot was just terrible with 20 seconds left.
lol, a fitting end to an amazing choke job my Minn.
State played solid D, tho no question. Why didn't tubby put sampson in earlier?
got on their knees and blew this game
4 straight possessions, and not once did a shot even touch the rim.. That is taking choking to a whole new level
Hah, wow I don't even know what to say anymore....
They needed to hit one shot down the stretch. Tubby being Tubby.
This is probably the worst finish I have ever seen.
I am so disappointed I watched this game.
Worst two minutes of basketball I've ever seen.
Wow Minny is bad at executing. They should've won this game. Shame.
Ya, but we could say the same about Northwestern yesterday. We got lucky it went to OT and then ran away with it. NW had many chances to win that game and just couldn't get it done.
Way to go Minnesota. What a pathetic showing in the last two minutes.
Lmao. 6 straight turnovers now? Go screw yourself Minnesota. If State wins out and we don't get a big ten championship from it, I will hate Minnesota for the rest of my life.
I would much rather Minny get blown out then tease me like this.
but the espn play by play says Minnesota last scored with 3:27 left in the half. That won't win many close games
NOW THEY MAKE A FUCKING 3?!?!
Fuck Minnesota! Get ready for another 58-0 ass kicking on the football field you scrubs.
Fitting...A 3 when it doesn't matter anymore.
Well, now I know how MSU fans felt last night.
Tubby Smith is an awful coach. Only a team that he coached could look like this late in the game. It is baffling how that guy won a national title. And what is up with that bow tie? He looks like the black colonel sanders
I can't believe he won a national title. His team is just horrible at the fundamentals.
At least Minny went down in style with those sharp bow ties.
That's how you pad the stats in the garbage time. You couldn't shoot that when it would have had an effect on the game.
They'll lose at Indiana and maybe against Ohio State. We'll get at least a share of the big ten championship.
What's really annoying is that Minnesota teased us like that, pretending for about 37 minutes that they weren't actually Minnesota.
Holy choke job...
And now some sweet sweet IU vs NCCU action! Super Wednesday!
Next year, make it 72-0. I've never hated Minnesota more. Run it up, Hoke!!
And we don't even have Gopherquest to fall back on. You useless twits. Argh.
Suck it Sparty.
That is the last time I waste a second of my life rooting for the gophers.
