PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Any ideas for the upcoming game? Suggestions and comments
Run some plays/screens for Diebler. He cannot keep going 35+ minutes into a game without hitting a three. We know that Jon has trouble creating his own shot so Thad should run some designed plays for him.
Keep Craft on the court at all times when to guard Darius Morris. Morris is the point guard for UofM and is averaging 15ppg and 7apg/ kid can play. We have seen the gnat-style defense that Craft can impose on guards and I would like him to stifle Morris all night long.
Pound the ball down to Sully more this time!! In the last outing against the Wolverines, #0 only attempted 6 shots and 4 free throws (12pts). UofM has NOBODY down low that can handle him and if all else fails they will double him leaving somebody wide open.
Lighty, has to keep driving the hoop and not allow the past few games to discourage him. He is really the only true slasher on the team.
Also, this being Jared's first year playing at the college level, could the physicallity of the game and Big Ten begin to affect him? I felt as if he might have been winded at the end of the Northwestern game as he missed multiple free throws off the front iron. Now, Im not saying that this is necessarilly the reason (and I hope he is able to continue to go 30+ min for us a game the rest of the way) but playing in a 7/8 man rotation and fitness being a concern before the season for Jared could become a factor potentially.
Prediction: I still think we roll at the VCA
OSU 79 UofM 66
I hear you on Sullinger, he got some rest against Purdue, but he's been pulling 35-40 minutes a game in 2011. I like your thoughts on Deibler, Craft and Lighty. If we could see the defense Ohio State played against Purdue and Iowa at VCA come back for the Michigan game then I think the Bucks are in good shape.
