According to Dan Dakich, who has ways to know, the adjustment Nik has made is to dribble lower. I scanned through the game pictures below for graphic evidence. One picture shows him dribbling low between two defenders, and one looks like the old high dribble. I will be interested to see if something so simple has really changed, and if it has really made the difference.

The pants of the two coaches make a good contrast. Coach Tom must be working on his bowling pin profile. Time to give up and wear sweat pants?
edit: 999! I am on the cusp of greatness. Will I graduate to something beyond trusted user?

handshake with Craft, too. I'll wait to see the film. I think Izzo would love to have an Aaron Craft on his team.

to our distinguished "rivals" from Champaign. Muck the Illini. And Higgins didn't foul.

I have only seen a few minutes, but it seems like this is what Sparty is always crying for- let 'em play.

I believe I heard the B1G guys say that this team matched the road win total of the '93 team last night. Best in 21 years! And still a chance for more.
Swag link edit: To me swag is being able to go on the road and stick it to them.

The gesture Izzo makes- is he telling them to slap the floor? I guess the Harris O Snap wasn't gif-worthy. Still, I enjoyed it.
Edit: I see it in the honorable mentions. Maybe he is just calling for the ball.
|2 weeks 17 hours ago||Beautiful pictures of a beautiful game!||
I love the look of calm and bliss on Horford's face during his slam. I'll post my gif trolling suggestions here: 1. Right after Nik hits a 3 over Harris, and Harris sees it drop, he makes a gesture like oh snap. 2. I think I remember a play during which Izzo jumps out on the floor a few feet from the action, and the official shoves him back off the floor. I can't wait for the game in gifs.

Avenged and then some! I wonder why my text notification hasn't come in for that game.

As a pitcher-dad I disagree. Many times a walk is the lesser of several alternatives. Especially when behind in the count, with runners on, in a close game, with a worse batter up next, a walk lets you live to fight another day with a minimum of damage. I hate to walk a lead-off, or a #8 or some #9 batters, but sometimes I am even ok with walking in a single run. It always beats a grand slam, and sometimes a walk turns out better than a strikeout (where I have seen a dropped 3rd turn into chaos.)
