seems amiss about the team lately, very frustrating, I hope we can snap out of it and soon....like right now
MBB Open Thread vs Illinois
Because we're playing with MUCH better energy on the defensive end. It took us awhile but we're starting to get back into the flow. Burke is much more active at the point on defense and our rotations are lightyears better than they were at the beginning of the game when we were giving Richardson wide open looks at the basket.
Ah are u watching the Michigan game?
And we're playing much better defense as evidence by that last possession. LeVert was all over the place, he just got a little too excited at the end and committed the foul.
How much do I hate seeing Lavert play. Nothing good happens with that guy
hortford reminds me of antonio mcdyess.. everytime he touches the ball he feels the need to shoot
Except that Mcdyess actually made some of them.
Before the panic?
The Crisler version of Special K just played a Pitbull song. Can we ride him out of town on a rail please?
I don't think that was a foul, I think that was good defense.
Ball don't lie!
Except for when the rebounding is retarded. Where's our home cooking?
Is Morgan basically done for the season
Catch the ball! That seriously has the be the 4th time we've dropped the ball.
we look so clumsy today and lately
You mean always. The entire year we've had stone hands
Why can't our team catch the ball?
Why can't you make ONE positive post?
GRAB THE FUCKING BALL WHEN IT'S IN YOUR HANDS
That's the 3rd or 4th fumble
Nice job Spike
You will only ever get that call at home.
Goddamn. Trey Burke. That high dribble...
get the fuck off the court
Just seems like we're slow, clumsy as of late. Watching them play it just doesn't feel like they really care. Of course, I'm sure they do, but it doesn't really seem like it.
Will be a coach one day.
Kid is the definition of "heady."
Refs are very whistle-happy on the Illini end it appears. Maybe our defensive intensity is picking up though?
i wouldnt let dan dakich drink my urine
Like Dakich has already tried to drink urgirlfriendsfavpizzaboi's urine and was denied.
Get within 2, relax and fall further behind, rinse and repeat
McGary really slow recovering after trapping near half court there. Cost him a foul on the Paul putback
This should be a game where we get the majority of the FTs seeing as Illinois is a jum shooting team and we are at home.
We are not very sharp.
Yep. Off week, early start, dead building
Good gracious...let's work to get an EASY basket for once.
This is pathetic
Godamn it. We didn't play like this earlier in the season.
This is a cluster
So yank Hardaway for a few minutes, he's dropping the ball, not boxing out and taking poor shots.
Four guys just standing under the basket, and Illinois tips it in. Just sad.
At worst we should have 19 points.
Geez. Three of our guys around the basket and the one Illini guy gets the put back. Ugh.
Love it when we give up the tip ins...ugh
out there. Watch GRIII get back on defense. He'd be moving quicker if he was even jogging.
PLAY WITH URGENCY!!!!
forget the freshman wall, let's call it the Michigan wall because the whole team has looked sluggish since early January
