Surprised not to see one yet.
Northwestern just pulled the upset at Indiana.
Crean is a con.
Have to win the home games, especially against lower level teams.
TURN UP IN MADISON
Just watched a replay of that game today, what a terrific day (1/27/11) that was.
Wisconsin is the one team I never expect us to win against. Too much stupid shit happens when we play them. Especially in Madison.
Effective FG% for Northwestern - 42.16%
Effective FG% for Indiana - 28.33%
Woof, Indiana. The Wildcats ruined the program - for a few sad hours in Bloomington anyway. That's despite Indiana having an advantage in offensive rebound percentage (27.66% to 17.65%) and a slight advantage in turnover percentage.
is there a positive correlation between rebounding rate and shooting percentage (assuming opponent adjusted)? you'd think that the more defensive rebounds you get, the more fast breaks you'd get, and you generally shoot better there. and the more offensive rebounds you get, the more close shots you get, and you generally shoot better there, too.
The Journey on BTN featuring Stauskas is on right now, and it's getting me pumped for some basketball.
but.....I think we get waxed tonight.
esp not at IU. Good for the Cats, and always enjoy a nice cup of Schadenfruede on Crean's dime.
This Pitt/Syracuse game has been awesome to watch
