Here we go baby!!! So pumped for this game. The 3's worry me, but our perimiter defense is much better than what ND conjured up last round

Amir expecting to get hacked. They need to stop rushing so much. Calm down and play ball.

I would plus 100 that statement if this site would allow me.  The good news is we only need to watch him TRY and play hoops for our Bucks for one more year.....He should be no better than the 2nd or 3rd person off the bench - behind Ross and Rav!  It's baffled me for two years how in the wide wide world he starts on this team.....we have shown in this 9 game run that we play MUCH better w/ him on the pine....

Squirrel Master's picture

Hey guys, stop rippin the team and the players! They are dominating teams and playing excellent ball as a team. Keep ripping Smith but I have seen him hit some clutch shots this year and play some excellent defense! Keep ripping Amir but he is a very raw talent that does make some plays and helps this team have some size against teams. As I have said, he has these spurts of good play but just isn't ready to be a full time player yet. He wasn't supposed to be the starter!
How about you enjoy this team a bit and stop with the name calling and benching! Until they start showing that they can't compete, you all are just whining!

I have no idea! At first Ravenel was getting killed as the starting center, so Matta put in Amir and hoped he would develop faster. 
Now Ravenel is playing in straight beast mode and should be starting despite Amir's play good or bad!
Ravenel is playing some AGAMD!

I can go out there and make 1 out of 10 WIDE OPEN 3s... so take that and shove it up your backside..  if you think he is good, you are the most ignorant basketball fan on earth

HS
GABuckeye's picture

Because he does more harm than good on the court.  He doesn't do anything well.  He can't drive, he can't dribble, he can't shoot, and he's the most overrated defender.  There is no reason for him to be on the court.  And also, I'm hating on him for the same reason everyone hated on Joe Bauserman.  

HS
DetroitBuckeye's picture

He is our 2nd leading scorer on a team whose weakness is scoring.

 
HS

well, he's 1 of 12.  We'll need him to do well to advance, so either keep on sending your hater vibes, or sack up and hope for the best.

Calling it too close early. Maybe setting the tone then lighten up later

Scott lightly tossed the ball at an ISU player along with stareing straight at him and yelling/saying something. Pretty easy taunting tech.

HS

Ravenel used to be 320? Really?

HS
PhillyBuckeye27's picture

The problem w/ Smith making that 3 is now he thinks he can shoot.....he outta go about 2-9 for the day....unfortunately Matta has no choice and has to play him since Scott has 2 fouls - lets hope we can limp to the half.  7-1 run since Scott went out and Smith came in - maybe cause Scott plays D and Smith runs after his man chasing him like he wants his autograph!

HS
syllabified's picture

We are not a 3 point shooting team, that is not or identity. Why are we trying to trade 3s? Take the time to develop the shot we make consistently. 

HS

It seems the inside game has worked best so far. Craft needs to drive to the lane.

HS

Amir didn't last long. Don't think he'll see much time unless Rav gets in foul trouble

HS

Or brains himself falling down.  

HS
740buckeye's picture

Looks like Ohio State is getting frustrated, losing some edge to their discipline on defense leaving Iowa State open on three's which is killing any lead we work out to. Then we rush down the floor putting up sloppy rushed three's because we aren't working down low without Rav falling all over himself.

HS
Idaho Helga's picture

When you get the ball under the rim, no, the best look is not passing  it out to try for a 3. Shoot the GD ball.  Better yet, dunk.

I'm actually kind of rooting for OSU today (as much as I can stomach, anyway...I want an all-B1G Final Four, even though it probably won't happen).
It's with that caveat that I'll say this: Even with a couple missed calls, these refs are WAY better than B1G refs.

Very strong chance in 3 of the brackets, UM needs to make sure they step up in theirs! Then I think it will definitely happen!

23 rebounds to our 12 rebounds explains the close score in addition to their three point shooting. Box out guys and kick this team teeth in!

Didn't think rebounding was going to be this big of an issue. I know that lots of three pointers lend themselves to large bounces that make it easier for offensive rebounds, but we need to sure this up.

They need to come to the quick realization that its no cakewalk anymore, there's no walk over teams. You can't get out rebounded 2:1 and expect to progress.

We have weathered everything they have thrown at us.  They destroyed us on the boards, hit their threes at a good clip and we even have some foul trouble.  I am not sure if they have much else to throw at us, so if we don't let up in the second half we are in a great spot right now.

Having foul trouble, losing the rebounding game, and Smith chucking up way to many shots... being up 2 at the half is a good sign. Matta is a great halftime coach and can make the right changes to pull away in the second half.

Couple of nice late baskets from Ross on a day when no one else wanted to step up next to Thomas.
Iowa State has five different players outrebounding the combined total of our two centers.

I think we'll be okay, folks. We didn't shoot particularly well (despite good looks, for the most part) and we did a crappy job on the defensive glass. I think we will settle in and re-focus, and win by 6-10. ISU's defense is bad, especially against the ball screen.

HS

Everything is in OSU's favor but 3 pointers made and rebounds! I just don't see those 2 things continuing like that. Barkley is wrong, I don't think this game will be close. Either ISU continues to do what will be impossible or OSU will stop this mess and take over.

Watch ISU's shooting when we get up by six. They just been getting lucky those wild shots have been dropping. That's the sign of a scared team, uncomfortable to be down.

Why would you not have Thompson run the baseline when they are in zone. With his athletic ability you get any penetration and you can lob the ball up to him. 

HS

we dont penetrate...we swing around the perimeter

4 people standing on the perimeter vs the zone is not the way to get it done
