Clark - in my opinion - you should be calling the game but it's always great to see you promoting the BUCKS

Why does Amir Williams still see the court, I can't watch him anymore.

Honestly, I have never been more disappointed with how a recruit turned out. I am sure he is a good kid, but he has really been a let down as a player.

Really Amir, can't get back on defense and then you get out of place on that last drive.  What I wouldn't give for a quality big man.

 

+1 HS
Seattle Linga's picture

Too frustrating at times

+1 HS
dubjayfootball90's picture

horray for early frustration. Amir has to hustle down the court. And we need to get underneath or even near the basket when we shoot. I hate when people run away from the basket when a shot is put up, basically conceding the rebound...

dubjayfootball90's picture

oh my god this is pathetic... Also, on that last missed fg, nice to see lsj back pedaling when the ball had yet to hit the rim, and there was no one on his side, could have had a 50/50 chance at a rebound... awesome...

Shall I recap the rest of the game for you?

LSJ will shoot (and miss) in volume. We'll go on a run to give us some hope then we'll break down near the half. They'll come out strong and be up by 12 with 10 to go in the second half and then we'll rally to keep it close down the stretch. it'll be a 4 point game with under 2 to go. Craft will make several reckless drives. We'll miss free throws and create turnovers.

I won't spoil the final...

good, craft is piling on the fouls for them. That is huge, KEEP DRIVING CRAFT!!! As it was said before and will undoubtedly be said many times over, he will be extremely missed.

I hate that OSU doesn't stick with the pressure on the out of bounds plays once the ball gets in. Just give a token 5 seconds of pressure to see if you can't get a trap or turnover.
