Glad to see John Groce and Illini send creepy Crean and his Hoosiers home.

And dang, Seton Hall with the upset of Villanova. Nice. I suppose that kills Nova's 1 seed hopes.

Me too, looks great on my iPad.  This is cool.  Hope to be doing it again tomorrow.  Go Bucks!

Yes.  First time I've tried btn2go app.  Right now it just says "Big Ten Network" on the screen, so I'm hoping there is not a technical problem somewhere...

Just about to say something about that. I mean how is any of your guards shooting 60% from the line? *not looking at you sam* I wonder if Matta would sacrifice a live chicken for them to hit some FTs?

There is nothing more remarkable as learning to think better.

Way too many mistakes so far...not a good sign.

9Route's picture

The only way we lose this thing is with unforced errors, missed bunnies, turnovers, not capitalizing on odd-man breaks. Little too much of that going on now, but I think Thad & staff will have it resolved after halftime. I see the Bucks pulling away the last 8 minutes to win 71-59.

I'm just happy to be here

I like your optimism.  Please share some of that with me.  I think I might enjoy this game better if I took my contacts out and put on a blindfold.

Is it just me or does Ross travel a lot. Feel like he has had a lot of travel calls against him this year...

It's not a travel, it's a crab dribble.

He is a chronic foot-shuffler, for sure.

How do you like your turnovers? Apple, cherry, travelling?

"Watching" the game on yahoo sports - am I imagining things or is this game being played by basketball for dummies aficionados?

Purdue is really crowding the paint.Right now our entire offense is layups off of transition.Purdue is terrible so that might be enough, but it's not a recipe for much success after today.

Big save by Craft and subsequent basket, because until then, it was looking like yet another bad end to a first half, which has been an issue for us all season.

This seems like a typical 2014 Buckeye game -- sloppy, make a run, give points back, make poor decisions, make it closer than it should be.   This has been a frustrating team to watch.  I've been hoping that Thad pulls out his usual Big Ten tourney magic and the Bucks make a nice run; its not too late, but I wont be surprised if it doesnt happen.

Ive been saying it all season long, can we just live and die with Q? I hope Matta gives him the ball at the end of the tournament games

CaliforniaBuckeye's picture

We'll win the game if 

A) Craft doesn't attempt anymore 3's

B) LSJ doesn't try playing 1on1 basketball

and finally

C) Run Bucks RUN!

We play our best when we are in transition. You would think they would push the tempo a little bit more. Hopefully Matta is giving them an earful in the locker room. Other than that i'm impressed how we are crashing the boards this game, hopefully we can pick up the intensity, and end this quickly.
