Oops there he is
that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides
Oops there he is
Defense is sloppy.
Every white guy on Westerns team looks like they came from Holland Christian
I hope we start heating up.
Dunk you very much!
Still workin on that alley oop thing
But seriously, what's our conversion % on those? 0%?
I was just about to post the same thing. I seem to remember someone hitting GRIII for one a few games ago. It's the only successful one I can recall.
just needs to stroke it and not hesitate
and nice dunk timmmayyy
That's what she said
I can't wait for McGary to mature...his speed and power is amazing....
Brian's description of him being a puppy is dead on
I can't wait for him to just start catching and hanging onto the ball
True, but watching him on defense is pretty cool. He has the potential to be a great defender this year
That he does. Very active and takes up a ton of space. It's just frustrating to see him make a great play on either end of the floor, have the ball in his hands and then...DO'H hands of stone sometimes. But I'm being picky. I've been very pleased with his play so far.
Turnout looks pretty good for western. Hope we don't have to say that going forward. That alley oop woulda brought the house down
Students didn't show up too well. But with finals coming up, not totally unexpected. Student tickets were going for the low price of... free. But the regular fans did turn out pretty well for a meaningless game.
sickkkk dunk by Hardaway.
Stauskas just got clobbered there.
If Stauskas can shoot 95% from the line for the season and 50% from three; how cool would that be? ANSWER ME!
Are my expectations too high when I am pissed that we are #3 and we are only up by 1?
Rankings doesnt automatically guarantee a double digit lead immediately
I'm good, Stauskas is good, it's alll gooood.
Trey with the trey!
All right I'm sold. Watching #4 Mitch McGary on defense . . . He is a Wolverine among sloths. Just outstanding.
PS have met him in West Quad courtyard too. Really nice guy.
Time to get seperation here
Wow. What a good acting job by that WM player.
That foul was called just cuz the guard jerked his head
No need for stupid divisions when you have a tourney at the end you dumb asses
Western's jersey have got some Notre Dame font goin on
What you want to see in games like this is good shot selection. I'm not particularly worried about the score --- we're going to win. But are we getting good looks? Are we taking good shots? Are we working certain possessions --- pushing the ball in the right spots?
These are things we need to worry about more than anything. In that Bradley game, this was what concerned me the most.
welcome to the game Matt...keep your head up...
is Vogrich on the floor, again?
He seems so out of place now
Vogrich serves no purpose.
young fellas use the glass more, it works man
Wow this is ugly. Can we blow these guys out now, please?
Stauskas, GR3 and THJ are a combined 1/9 from the field and 0/3 from three. Combined they have 4 points. Meh.
Protip: no more Vogrich.
I would love to see the stats if Vogrich's fouls and TOs vs points, assists and rebounds.
Lots v little
Before this game Vogrich was playing very well. He's been a much better defender than Stauskas and had taken on that gritty role that we needed.
He was getting like 8 minutes a game, so it's a nonfactor, but he was certainly playing better than he has all year.
This has BY FAR been his worst game.
is on fire right now
Neither team can put the ball in the hoop right now. Lucky we at least aren't turning the ball over, that's the difference in the game right now.
We're taking good shots for the most part...and if we wanted, we could play our best or go 1-3-1 and shut down this slip-screen stuff they're running.
Vogrich really strugged in his first time off the bench...I might go back with putting him in the starting lineup and bringing him out quickly for Stauskas.
Then again, Levert is likely going to eat into his minutes. Wouldn't be shocked to see Stauskas start and Levert be the backup wing player.
He was playing well all things considered. Stauskas was lightyears ahead of him on the offensive end. But he was playing solid defense while Stauskas was giving up easy baskets earlier this year. He was also the first guy on the floor for loose balls and scrappy plays.
He was playing his role well. Then Stauskas was coming off the bench playing his. I think the emergence of Levert has more to do with Vogrich to the bench than Nik's play. Stauskas is always going to get starter's minutes whether he's starting or not.
He is a part of this team. Stop treating him like some sort of cancer. You have no idea what he contributes on or off the floor...I know I don't, but when I watch him, he does the little things well. He can get hot and produce a mini run by himself. Is he a starter...No...Is he a player who can provide some time off the bench...Yes. Stauskus is catching up on the D-end, and hence, greater minutes.
