They did it again.
...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.
They did it again.
Again? How stupid are these teams that play OSU? Stop giving up wide open threes. Are you afraid of Craft beating you off the dribble? Wow that's bad defense.
The guy was like 3 feet behind the arc I'm not sure what you're expecting from Arizona there.
Well maybe someone within 6 feet of the shooter?
Well, yeah, that's how your supposed to play it. Craft is very capable of beating people off the dribble. Better to give up those low % shots from 24-28 feet than let them get into the lane and/or closer for a better shot. At a certain distance you kind of have to give them a shot and we've seen the past week that some teams are just going to hit them.
I personally think the shot is stupid and that most players need to try and attack the basket in these end of game situations, especially when tied of down 1. Why the eff do these teams need a 3 when 1 or two will win it? Anyway, again, defenses pack it in and let the long ball go and sometimes it just works against them.
I understand not wanting to give up the two in the lane, but come on. There was nobody even close on the shot. Completely uncontested threes are not that low percentage.
I'll have to see again on replay how far away a defender was. I was thinking a guy was fairly close, but yeah, if there really wasn't anybody semi-close I definitely see your point.
They both jumped Craft off of the ball screen, it was a defensive miscomunication. They probably should have switched.
You do realize Craft is like a 30% shooter from deep? And a much better finisher?
Ha Craft and "finisher" in the same sentence is hilarious.
You apparently don't watch a lot of OSU basketball. That's okay. He gets to the rim very well, and whn there doesn't blow the layup. This happens. Much more often than him canning threes.
Going to the monitor here is BS.
Agreed. I get the time is important but how do you just give Arizona a free time out after they burned them? Didn't end up mattering but this game was just all around poorly officiated.
Bad ass shot.
They must have a special deal with Satan...
To check the time you dumbass. God these guys are awful
mother fucking buckeyes.. since when did bo ryan start coaching the buckeyes?
Back to back cold blooded 3s for OSU? This is the last team I would have thought could do this.
Not saying thoe shots are easy, but when the game is tied it's a little easier
That is true but with how challenged OSU was offensively for long portions of the year, it is quite unbelievable.
This OSU buzzer beater shits getting really old.
Good Lord Ohio State....Wow.
Ridiculous monitor check. Refs have to be aware of game situation when they do this. Totally helps arizona.
If Arizona had made a game tying 3, Thad Matta would've rightly lost his mind. Arizona shouldn't get a free timeout. I know if something like that had happened to Michigan I would've thrown things
It's not that hard to do when teams give you wide open looks.
I hear the ohio fight song....I wanna sing "liquidate ohio state and humble woody hayes"
OSU has all but punched their final four ticket unless Wichita St or La Salle is much better than I think they are
Wichita St. is pretty legit in my humble opinion. But I'm not sure the Gods are going to allow Ohio to lose so it's a bit of a moot point!
lol Ohio pulls the horseshoe out of their pocket yet again.
So question for the board:
Who beats OSU? Or do they run the table?
Louisville. Just like my bracket says they will. Of course my bracket also has Georgetown over us to get to the Final 4, so what do I know?
But they'll again fall short in the Final Four. They won't get past any combination of Louisville, Sparty or Duke.
Just because OSU has a laughably easy road to the Final Four doesn't mean anything for the FInal Four when they'll play teams that are actually seeded 5 or higher. They're not that great
G@d*ammit! Man, I hate Ohio State and their making-threes-at-the-buzzer asses.
IU getting blitzed off the bat
I don't think IU has the patience to stay with Syracuse's zone. They better get some turnovers and missed shots so they don't have to play a half cour game.
OSU has had a cakewalk in the tourney, and the football team beat, what, one ranked team? It's amazing how they never really have to play anyone.
Sick if OSU getting this BS luck. I have never hated anything more in my life. F that hole fan base and that state
in the hell did all those Ohio fans get out to LA? It takes at least a week and a half to hitchhike from Columbus.
They had a big ol convoy, Rollin through the night...
Calls seemed to be in Ohio State's favor in the last 10 minutes of the 2nd half. Can't knock the hustle on ice-blood 3's to win games though.
My thoughts exactly.
Is it just me, or is the picture from TBS much better than on CBS? Switching from the OSU game to IU and the picture doesn't look nearly as sharp.
Agreed, thought that last weekend as well
I sorta hope Oladipo somehow gets exposed as a bit overrated.
Oladipo looks silly trying to get the ball at the top of the key vs the zone.
has been offensive in a bad way....not complaining tho
Watford passing up open 3's? What bizarro world are we living in right now?
