Looked good for the Chargers in preseason. No idea why they cut him and then nobody else gave him a look. He's certainly not any worse than the guys who were quarterbacking the Bengals this season.
Looked to me like Verkleeren was stalling against Sasso. That match before the OT sudden death was about as boring as it gets.
Muhammad had a good game. It felt like he should have been in the game more down the stretch. His defense might have been able to affect Rutgers 3 point shooting there.
Rutgers squeezed the heck out of Washington. Not sure how that wasn't a foul. Andre then hits one free throw.
Walker drove the ball at the end of the shot clock and faded away. Take it into the defender and draw the foul.
Please take care of the ball and hit free throws.
Andre back to doing bad things again. Poor pass and turnover. And then Walker goes for the steal and leaves Baker wide open for an easy 3. Arghhhh!
True. And let's give the guys who are getting him the ball some credit too.
Andre had a couple of bad turnovers, but he got on the floor and saved a couple possessions, and hit some big shots, from 3 and a couple in close. Not perfect, but I'll take it!
I'm glad to be wrong!
Another bad end to a half looming ahead.
I guess the idea tonight is to make Rutgers score from the line.
Andre Wesson is finally giving us what we need from him.
Our effort to take the ball and get it to the hole was lacking most of the game. Evidence: zero free throws in the 1st half. A big part of that was Kaleb and Kyle were both on the bench near the end of the 1st half. Our guards and forwards needed to pick up the slack with the big guys out.
It seemed like we lost our focus and settled for jacking up bad shots. I'm thinking that was the result of frustration caused by the physical Badgers defense and the many turnovers.
A player's shooting statistics AFTER the game is over have no bearing on the decisions that a coach has to make during the game. Any player can have a bad game offensively, but we need to have Kaleb available for both halves, and not just for offense, but for his low post defense and for his rebounding.
We're not getting the ball to the rim enough. Walker or Andre need to get to the rack on a few possessions, otherwise teams are going to get away with bodying us up on the defensive end.
Holtmann said after the game, that in thinking about it, he could have brought Kaleb back in earlier. But that's a real risk of having Kaleb pick up his 3rd foul in the 1st half. It's really up to the players on the floor to keep the deficit from growing fast like that at the end of the 1st half without Kaleb.
We had the lead down to 11 early in the 2nd half, and then the bad offensive possessions kicked in. Can't do that when you're trailing and trying to come back.
I'm sorry man, that's just a lousy take.
He's a better offensive player than that. Carton getting minutes affected Walker's offensive game a bit, mostly mental. Don't get me wrong, I certainly wish we had Carton, but I think Walker's offensive game will pick up now.
Walker needs to do that right there a whole lot more. Get the ball to the rack and get to the line.
Dude's weird. I'm guessing it's his way of showing how physical and tough he is. It just looks spastic.
Kaleb's 1st foul where he drove the ball from up top and the Badger player picked up the charge was huge. Kaleb never got into this game on either end.
Well, on the plus side, Muhammad has played better this half. He had a couple of stupid fouls in the 1st half, but he's been better this half. Andre and Walker are not giving us enough on the offensive end. And Pritzl can't miss.
