What a frame on this kid, his arms are really long. Looks like he has a very explosive first step and gets off the ball low. Great to see us pull another big time player out of the DMV.
It was awesome to see and hear The Schott last night. It was the first time the place has had a pulse all year. It makes the game so much more fun. I'm going to try to go to the Wisconsin game and I hope we get the place rocking again.
Great victory! Man that was a grind. D'Angelo Russell was huge in this game. Some of the tough plays he made down the stretch took some major onions. I thought Amir Williams played really well tonight. He brought a lot of energy and he was ready for the battle with the Purdue bigs, Trey Mcdonald not so much. Sam Thompson was huge in this game. He really dug in defensively and made some huge plays on offense. Great to see him bury his free throws too.
Hopefully the team can build on this victory and consider themselves 1-0 in March when the elite rise to the top.
We run the easiest offense to defend in the history of college basketball! There is no movement, bad screens being set and as a reault poor shots.
How in the hell is that an offensive foul?! The defender wasn't in front of him he was hanging all over the side of him because he got beat off the dribble.
Marc Loving has got to start hitting those threes!
Amir is getting after it tonight, great to see.
A LITTLE JUICE IN THE SCHOTT TONIGHT!
Let's Go Bucks!
When Urban says it's time for some of the guys on the defensive line to get going Michael Hill is one of the main guys he is speaking of. He was highly recruited and has the size and quickness to be a very good defensive tackle. The team needs him to play to his potential this season.
He had a very good spring game last season, not sure what happened after that.
Hopefully The Schott will have some juice tonight! I know there is snow on the ground but this is a big game and the team needs the fans to create a hostile environment.
It would be a great sign if Loving got on a roll from 3 today.
Awesome news! Great oppurtunity for Kenny G to get his coaching start and attend graduate school at his hometown school. I'll be rooting for the Cougars next season.
We're a dangerous team when guys are creating turnovers and getting out in transition. I hope to see a lot more of it down the stretch.
Marijuana doesn't make you brain dead, that's alchohol. Marijuana leads to interesting and new perspectives and increased creativity. Idk how we can call ourselves free when you can be thrown in jail for using a harmless plant.
Gareon Conley was awful when he started the Michigan State game but I think he responded from that nicely with the way he handled his special teams duties. He made some nice hits on kickoff team down the stretch and showed some nice energy. He has a rare combination of length and speed, if he can become a more physical player I think he could be very good.
I think the other player that will be competing for that spot is Damon Webb. It'll be interesting to see how much better he gets after a year in the system.
We really needed a win like this and we got it. Ja'Sean Tate continues to impress and he is finishing plays at the rim. Sam Thompson and Shannon Scott played really well tonight. This team is so much better when they're in a groove. Hopefully they can find that groove in the NCAA tournament. Marc Loving was able to bury some 3's tonight but i'd still like to see him show more energy and emotion.
He showed some good energy towards the end of the game. I would love to see him play well in his final two home games.
I think there will be more energy in The Schott Saturday night then there has been all season. The game is in primetime against a hot Purdue team that handed us a tough loss earlier this season. I expect to see an electric atmosphere at home for the first time this season.
Really solid first half. Ja'Sean Tate continues to get better every game. Shannon Scott & Sam Thompson hitting a few 3's. D'Angelo Russell back to doing what he does which is make basketball look easy.
I want to see us attack the glass with an attitude in the second half and I'd like to see Marc Loving get hot.
I agree with this lineup. The team is so much better offensively when D Russ is running the point. Sam Thompson can be frustrating to watch at times but he is also a good defender who can occasionally get hot from 3. The only change I would make to this lineup is KBD at the 3 and Tate at the 4. Tate does his best work in the post & KBD can fill it up from deep. I would put Anthony Lee at the 5 if he ever gets healthy. Mcdonald would be my next choice because at least we know what we're getting from him.
I just watched it too. Really cool to see some rare behind the scenes stuff with Matta. I like his quote "I don't do bad days."
Curtis Grant getting the boys fired up!
Corey Smith has shown the ability to get behind the defense but he hasn't shown that he can catch the ball when it gets there. If he can start pulling the ball in consistently he could be a big time deep ball threat.
Johnnie Dixon was a big time deep ball threat in high school. Parris Campbell has the size and speed to be a big time deep threat.
D'Angelo Russell has been very average since the Rutgers game. All the hype is probably getting to his head. I hope he can snap out of it.
