DID YOU KNOW? The last time Northwestern won a game of roundball in Columbus, Fleetwood Mac's “Rumours” had just been released and Radio Shack was trying to convince people that they needed a TRS-80.

Anyone else notice that thompson looks down at the ball when he's dribbling?

Craft looks like me when he shoots (not good).

1 point between TV timeouts.  Dangerously close to point at which we can't come back.

as usual we continue hope the hot hand will cool down instead of changing the defense to try and shut him down

FROMTHE18's picture

really want to believe in the B1G is tough argument for why this team has struggled, but they make it so damn hard for that to keep being the case.

This team is at its best when it is attacking the rim...NOT...i repeat NOT throwing the ball around the perimeter hoping a defender falls asleep

Smith has ridiculous rebounding skills for a guard.

OSUEXT's picture

Not sure why Ross got ejected, I understand he pushed some people, but it doesn't seem like that warranted ejection. 

InTressITrust's picture

I agree with the ejection. No need to come in and blind side someone like that. That being said we need him next game and I really hope they don't suspend him more.

BHT's picture

I did not watch the game. Is there a gif?

From what I heard, I do not think it is an ejection. Should be a technical but not an ejection. That being said, I did not watch the game so I did not see it. I could be wrong.

BHT's picture

I saw it on another thread. I think it is an ejection for Q but no suspension.

I for one am going to miss Craft next year as I think he is the glue that holds this team together.
