The idea of him moving to the 3 scares me a bit. Our strength next year will be at the wing, so why not pack as many of them on the floor as possible? I just doesn't make sense.

What's the crowd like? Were tickets hard to come by, could they be bought before the game at the gate? I'm thinking of going tomorrow and I don't really know what to expect.

I am not at all claiming that. But from my own basketball experience and talking about it with friends from State, it's not a good system. It's a shitty experience waiting in line, getting cut by drunk kids who show up after you, and having everyone try to squeeze their friends in. Having a few empty rows up top may not be pretty to look at but the current system is what's best for my viewing experience. Which is what actually matters to me.

That's just not true. Before the Ohio State basketball game there was damn near a riot to get in the gates. That was for basketball. An hour and a half before tip. This will be chaos.

Except for it's not that reasonable. Tim Duncan is a top 20 player all time. No offense to Mitch, but he's not even a "poor man's" Tim Duncan. I mean Mitch doesn't even have a single post move.

I don't understand how people can say stuff like this when Zeller murdered us on our home floor in a B1G regular season championship game. Not saying he's the best fit for our team with Mitch playing so well, but the kid is a great player and could play for my team any day of the week.

Ahh well done, thank you. That seems like an awfully childish and toothless dig.

Watch him try to chase a shooter through screens. He runs into every effing one. It's like he's trying to get screen. I miss Stu.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||His rebound numbers are||
His rebound numbers are inflated beyond his actual usefulness on the boards. He turns and jumps the vast majority of the time. He has good length, a quick jump and soft hands so he frequently comes down with it. But this doesn't make him a "better" rebounder than, for example, JMo, who puts his butt into someone every time. It's harder to come down with the ball when you're blocking someone out, but it's necessary for team success on the boards.

It's funny how you called him a troll then posted this literally one post later. Stay classy.

Nah our win over them was at Crisler during the ACC B1G challenge. Brian done screwed up.

Seth Davis just tweeted out his AP ballot that had us at the top spot. So we may end up being #1 in both.

I don't know what schdule you're looking at. Last year alone: lose at Indiana, win at home; murdered at OSU, win at home; pummeled at Sparty, win at home; lose at a terrible Iowa team. That was on a team with incredible senior leadership. B1G road basketball is VERY difficult, especially with 5 frosh contributors.

Did you really just list Kyle Singler as Duke's starting big? I think you meant Brian Zoubek, who was a 5.5 PPG game much like Mitch and Jordan. So to answer your question, yes you can win it all with a glue guy playing the 5.

No doubt. The fact that he didn't even cough the ball up once against that high pressure D tells you everything you need to know about what a stud we have.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||It was a function of how WVa||
It was a function of how WVa was defending that made the PG spot more critical in this game than others. The Mountianeers play high pressure defense. This means they crowd the ball handler but also they get up in our guys off the ball, which takes away passing lanes. Beilien's spacing on the perimiter made this even more pronounced, leaving the ball handler on an island.
This makes it difficult for Spike to do what he is asked to do, which is usually just dribble the ball up and initiate a play, because the pass that initiates the offense is being taken away. However, this high pressure opens up driving lanes for the person with the ball in his hands and the back door cut for those without the ball. Spike threw 3 backdoor cuts from what I remember which is the right read, but he missed the pass once or twice.
The thing that Trey did so well was beat his man off the dribble (which is easier against high ball pressure, but you're also more likely to turn the ball over). This meant the help wasn't there, because of the defense's off the ball pressure, so he had easy buckets. Spike doesn't have the handles or the quickness yet to blow by people yet, end WVa defensive scheme was perfect to expose that. However, if was easy pickings for Trey, so we saw him rack up 27 or so.

This is clearly the way to do it. As a student, I don't want to camp out before every home game and waste hours of my time. I should, however, be rewarded next year for showing up on time throught this year when my seats are assigned next year. And I shouldn't have to prove my arrival time on some shitty HAIL app with spotty service when a ticket could do it for me much more easily.

Dekker is nasty. He lacks top end athletic ability but he's tall and long and can score in every way imaginable. His 3 to win the state championship is worth a YouTube if you haven't seen him yet.
