Let’s go boys!

Interesting lineup. Sort of like last year’s 3 guard lineup. Kind of amazing that two of last year’s starters aren’t starting. I expected the 3 guards, and I guess the centers’ recent play forced this.(I know it was in the other thread, but game’s on)


#3

Didn’t realize Drew had 53 straight starts.


#4

Wow both Jones and Brooks not starting.


#5

When preparing for our offense, does the opposing team only need to work on covering the high ball screen?


#6

Hope it lights a fire when they come in…


#7

Still giving up wide open shots on defense


#8

Yes, and maybe Battle driving.


#9

Hey, every school has traditions! ;D


#10

Nobody ever moves over and even gets a hand up…I hate that


#11

Did you see that block that Ott had? :o


#12

Ugh, Frazier


#13

hi…I’m the halfcourt line…


#14

Is it a backcourt violation if your body crosses the line but the ball doesn’t?


#15

Exactly,court presence totally absent there.

First 4 minute thoughts -

Babb 1-3 on 3 wide open looks, would like to see him start making 2-3 on the wide open ones or they’ll just keep giving him those looks.

Both teams have been careless early with the ball.

We’ve given up 4 wide open 3 pointers to them, they’ve hit 3. They’ve also hit a couple of tough shots against good defense.

Battle made a nice read on the hedge by their big man to get to the hoop.

Our offense already looks a bit stagnant - it’s like we run it once out of a timeout or the start of a half, and then it’s just freewheeling ball screens the rest of the way til the next stoppage. Gotta stay with the gameplan fellas.

Lots of room to improve - let’s get it together.

Frazier sure can leap though, jeez


#18

Was that a Illini travel on the breakaway?


#19

Battle scores because he and two other players were loafing back on defense. Great steal by Frazier.

Woodyard for 3
