Amir needs to assert himself down low. That was a good move before it went out of bounds, but he needs to be a BIG man down low this game

Really sucks that the only points we can get are from a dunk...

Amir is wreaking havoc down low now. This is what he needs to do. It is what he SHOULD be doing day in and day out. Kid can be a monster

That's why those who follow the program are so frustrated with him. Flashes of greatness. But flashes need to turn to consistent.

oh believe me, i know. I am very critical of Amir, he can be soooo good

Good win by the bucks.  McDonald, Loving and Della Valle are 0 - 5, not the stat you want to read, but it happens sometimes.  Only being out rebounded by 3 is a bit of a moral victory for the bucks.  Glad the report of Lanzelle Smith's demise was premature.

 As bad as Amir looks most of the time on the court he came out with energy and was involved tonight.  Once we get up by 5-10 pts on teams though he gets pretty lackadaisical on defense and gives up tons of easy buckets and rebounds that he should eat up.  Overall a good win tonight.  The B1G ten race will easily be a 4 loss team this year for first place because it is a crapshoot night in night out
