Wisconsin BBall Postgame Thoughts

Submitted by Lionsfan on February 9th, 2013 at 1:58 PM

Will Beilein ever put a man on the inbound? Forget fouling, that end was exactly like Evan Turner's shot against us

Brian's take on the Refs, and the game

There is no justice. There is only Bo Ryan ruining basketball.

I am tired of the poop sandwiches served by the refs on the road in the B1G. What makes it worse is the poop sandwiches the refs served us at home vs. Ohio. Piss poor

I just tried to explain the game to my wife and this was my direct quote: " it was a fucking fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck!!"

That sums it up.

At the end there. That is how you lose games. Tough loss, I can think from our loses which have all been close and that will prove to be valuable in the tournament. Time to get plowed.

I've said it everytime I see him on the floor this entire season. the majority of mistakes made on the floor when he's in are because of him and completely on him. That should have been a foul at the end and he did nothing. This has been going on all season, but hopefully culminated with this failure at halfcourt.

He should have redshirted.

can a team get a number 1 seed if they don't win their conference?  because i don't think Michigan will win the BIG  this year.. indiana right now owns the tiebraker and since we only play wisconsin once they have the tiebraker.

They're much worse on the road. They'll drop a game or two that they should win easily. The title will be UM, IU, OSU or MSU. Everyone else is an obstacle.

And conferences get 2 1 seeds all the time (ACC, Big East, Fab Five and IU in 1993). Even if it's just one from the B1G, it could easily go to the tournament winner, not regular season. It will be fine.

There is no tie-breaker for the Big10 title.  Big10 will get 2 one seeds almost certainly, likely us and Indiana.  Our schedule left is very favourable.  It is going to be nearly impossible for the committee to forget the Kansas loss to Duke or Miami losing to Florida Golf Coast (though I think Duke destroys them and ends any thought of them being a 1 seed anyway.  There NC St. and Duke wins have major astericks on them).

Burke's time management with the clock running down is our kryptonite. How many possessions did we blow down the stretch on a poor or rushed shot? It's not a five second shot clock...

And man do we get away with having an incredibly questionable inside presence.

You would think the Evan Turner shot would have taught him two things.  Guard the inbound man and don't let someone run into that shot.  You have a guy at midcourt just playing free safety to take that away.  Unreal!

not putting a guy on the player inbounding the ball and giving them an inbound pass at half court at the end of regulation.  That is a coaching problem and it makes no sense. Thank goodness Levert didn't foul and make it a four point play.

The whole game... Too much doubling ball carries at the top and wings leaving guys wide open for threes .. no hard aggression inside leading to missed layups. Two points in OT.

Stauskas and GR3  have 5 and 4 points today, but as bad as that - unfortunately this loss goes right on the coaches.   2.4 seconds is a ton of time & yeah half court shots rarely go in - but NO EXCUSE to even allow a shot.  We had 2 fouls to give .... this just ruins the day!

Go Blue!

Sorry I know some hate blaming refs, but they need held accountable. If the ref gets back on Mitch's steal he sees/hears him getting hammered. If the refs aren't going to follow the rules then get them off the court and go with Open Gym rules.

Whatever. Shoddy officiating and it still took Ben Brust having a horseshoe up his ass to win the game.

Also re: last shot of regulation, LeVert was right in his face and Brust heaved up a complete prayer. Don't argue to foul, Brust will never hit anything similar to that again in his life. Shit happens.

Can't go 1-3 in this stretch and not be looking up big time in the standings. MSU won up there, and we just pissed it away. Another horrible end of half shot that we were lucky to have go down. It's not coincidence anymore; it's a problem getting good plays off after timeouts at the end of halves. Then we decide to replay Ohio State all over again with the end of regulation defense. Though if Dakich was right (it would have been the first time all game) and Beilein was yelling foul I don't know what the players were thinking. They call shooting on Wisconsin on our last shot they can lose the game; if they do on us at worst he has to hit 3 to tie (unless you pussy foul on that last shot). And what, two missed lay-ups by Burke and one by McGary down the stretch? Gave this one away. First bad loss of the season.

It all gets fixed by a win on Tuesday. But if not (and if we can't beat Wisconsin I don't know why we'd be favored against MSU) we're in some trouble.

Nice broad-brush comment that is completely meaningless.   We had a lot of good defensive stops today during key junctures of the game.   Have you also noticed that we're playing with a roster littered with freshmen and sophomores?   They're still learning how to play defense at this level.  I think you're constipated and need to get that turd out of your system ASAP.

stupid stupid stupid stupid dumb. No reason we should have lost that game. Wisconsin honestly sickens me. I don't knw where they all their luck from. Dammit all to hell.

FUCK GOD DAMN SHIT NO GO GOOD THINGS FUUUCK.

That said, is it possible that we still move up after having lost this game? Barring (another) unlikely Duke implosion tomorrow, they'll probably slide up to #1. Everyone else around us also lost, and in much uglier fashion than overtime on the road.
