This was a typically pathetic effort that anyone with a brain has come to expect from a DeChellis team. Just what a miracle the NIT championship was is so much more apparent now. The fact that there are fans that are not enraged by what PENN STATE has come to symbolize in the college BB world shows just how low PSU fans have sunk to.
Bright spots; there were no bright spots. Anyone who thinks Oliver, Frazier or for that matter everyone except Battle, are any more than deep bench players for a reasonably good college team is just not paying attention. Frazier has potential but he in no way is ready. Oliver tried but he was rarely in good defensive position (of course who on the team is ever in good defensive position?) and never was in the flow of the offense. Not that it even makes sense to use “offensive flow” when talking about a Penn State BB team. It is so sad to see Battle in this setting, he deserves so much more. Like for example a COACH.
If anyone, student or otherwise, in any way supports this team you are part of the problem. A strong message has to get to Graham that makes it clear this situation with the BB team is unacceptable to anyone who has any semblance of self respect. And if Curley won’t do something about it he has to go as well.
