Per Request - 2nd Half Thread - Shake off the Offensive Woes

Submitted by xtramelanin on March 17th, 2018 at 10:57 PM

Mates,

Per request, a 2nd half thread, a little less unwieldy.  Maybe this half we'll run a recognizabale offense and shoot better than 30%.   

At least we held manbun to 2 for 11 shooting, so take that manbun.

Go Blue!

If only we could fast forward through the TBS halftime coverage, because imagining how everyone would look with a manbun is just what I want in what is supposed to be at least passable halftime "analysis". Good lord.

A game like this could be decided by the refs. Any more phantom calls on us in an effort to keep the calls even are going to hurt badly with the way we're shooting.

so did Z.  Right now, our 50 percent free throws is hurting us. No Rahk or Moe really so far.  To be tied isn't the end of the world.  This is a top 20 kenpom team.

Gotta adjust 2nd half tho.

UM is just a 2 pt kenpom favorite in this game. Houston's defense is 16th nationally in efficiency, and their lack of size is not really a problem against our style of offense.

It's a tough matchup for us offensively, but we did generate quite a few good looks over the last 8 or so minutes of the half.

This is going to be a dogfight the rest of the way

When he plays like crap, Teske the better option. I'll be honest. Don't think I've ever seen a college player this STREAKY in my life. Sometimes you get good Mo, and sometimes he's pretty bad. Need good Mo 2nd half. Needs to eliminate 3rd and they need to run a couple plays for him to get some looks.

UM has lost whatever momentum they had built going into the tournament. It seemed that when they were attacking the rim is when they were playing the best.

Jesus.  4/17 from 3...  As it looks, they're just throwing up 3's and hoping for the best.  Even Robinson's hits seemed like poor selections.  They need to get this cleaned up.
