For some reason this team has just not learned from their consistent mistakes and that includes our senior leaders, CJ and Woods. CJ remains a turnover machine, 7, yes 7, last night and Woods continues to be MIA.
Sure wish KBD would have stayed. He would have surely helped the Bucks far more than setting the bench, and often not even on the bench, in Minnesota. Once again far too often college players see themselves as better than they are or will be especially at the NBA level.
This team has become very frustrating to watch. . . undisciplined, sloppy play and not learning from past mistakes. Shooting 36% from the floor and 15% from 3pt. range and this was a home game! We only made 9 of 19 layups, and I am not sure if that even counts CJ's missed short range floaters but it doesn't count how many easy layups we gave them. . . Not to mention the lack of senior leadership like CJ's consistent turnover problem with 7 more tonight and Woods not showing up for some time now.
Could be a tough game with our turnover problems and their turnover positives. Glad to see the Bucks are addressing it in practice now it is time to address it during a game. We really need to win this game.
Great call, great coaching & great execution by CJ & AW!
Agree whole heartedly regarding LM and DW but remain concerned about Jallow's lack of offensive production. Yes he came in younger than normal but he has had a year and a half with the team, has had increased playing time and still not producing.
Yes, an "ugly affair" but I will take an ugly away win any day. I simply can't believe how we continue to play so carelessly, especially with turnovers, and have not shown much improvement. Take away even half the points Indiana scored on our turnovers and we win by a greater margin.
Sometimes lower ranked players end up producing as much or more as highly ranked players. They come hungry and ready to work. If I recall correctly a few years ago we recruited a three star QB that eventually won the Heiman trophy.
If Kaleb can stay on the floor and produce and the team maintains their focus and cuts back, way back, on the turnovers they are capable of walking away with a win.
Looking forward to his and his fellow recruits arrival. We currently need a few sharp shooters wether they drive the lane or hit more consistently from the outside.
KY may not always score in double digits but he plays a balanced, solid game. . . well focused, keeps his head into the game and with intensity. Great work young man.
Young may not be flashy and not regularly light up the score board but he is a "steady Eddie," keeps his head in the game and often contributes key plays at just the right time. We need more players with his effort and focus.
Your probably right but at least they did get a couple foul calls correct that the refs didn't.
Delighted with the win but this team has so much to improve on. Way, way too many casual and careless turnovers and regretfully our senior leader lead the way in that department and while a couple of Kaleb's fouls were highly questionable at best he needs to smarten up and not continue to dig himself and the team into a hole. We need him on the floor.
Tate was a disappointment both as an athlete and as a person. He said something like "bring on the competition and I will be the starting QB." Well so much for becoming the starting QB at OSU not to mention not keeping his word and accepting the challenge.
All three are more than welcome. We need some consistently good pure shooters who can produce when the pressure is on.
Securing Ohio's best players each year is a positive. Not only are they quality players often sought by other football schools they are Ohio guys who "want to" play for their home state Buckeyes.
Great to see Kaleb back in the grove especially less fouling which allows him to be more aggressive. Keep it up BIG guy!
If Kaleb and CJ continue to play the way they played today we could have a strong finish and even surprise a few teams.
Kaleb and CJ were on their game and turn-overs were finally under control. Keep playing this way and we can win four in a row and with better rebounding the score would have been even better. Congrats to both team and coaches for getting it back on track.
It is time for the team to get their heads into the game and focus, focus, focus.. . as on EVERY PLAY. Enough of the undisciplined and foolish turn-overs, not finishing on close-in shots and unnecessary, undisciplined fouling. Get it together team and bring home a much needed win!
I am confident that Holtmann and staff will get it done but we need to give them some time especially with the poor, no terrible, roster they inherited.
Possible but the team will will need to show significant improvement to win all four. . . Like Kaleb smartening up on excess fouls and the team significantly cutting excessive turnovers and increasing shooting percentage via better shot selection and concentration even on short range shots and layups.
What more can coach say? I believe the program is head in right direction, especially considering the roster mess he inherited. My biggest concern with current team is there seems to be no individual or team improvement.
While Kaleb takes some unnecessary, undisciplined fouls he also gets many questionable and bad calls. Coach did the right thing to learn why it keeps happening to his key player.
