Hoops vs. Northwestern open thread

Since ten minutes have gone by I figured I'd start this myself even if I end up being the only one replying.

The defense looks good so far - NU looks like it goes with a lot of motion to make up for what I imagine is a relative athletic disadvantage, but we've been vigiliant and active preventing backdoor cuts. Most of their points have come from getting the ball inside and so they're fronting and getting in tight on the guy throwing the entry pass.

Man. I coulda gone, had I not been giving literal tons of homework for next week.

They appear to have settled in, and are now making most of the shots they missed in the first few minutes.

Anthony Wright getting PT continues to boggle my mind. The dude just seems lost. Throws careless passes. Puts up low-percentage shots. Give his minutes to Vogrich, please.

So I am streaming the radio feed on my computer while watching the game on mute. Good way to avoid the BTN announcers.

Note: to pull this off you have to have a DVR so you can get the delay on the TV match the delay on the internet feed

This team is just too streaky...They look great 1 half and then absolutely look horrible another...They are missing leadership or focus or something else maybe heart. Very frustrating.
