You maybe right but in 2 years we have only seen a 5 game stretch of good winning basketball. 20 point beat down on senior night doesn't help pp jump on board. So I believe reason to raise an eyebrow.
No . . . Hot team (IU) on the bubble fighting for their tournament lives, versus a young team that is not hot . . . at all, and are getting hosed by the zebras

Does anybody know why Samba hasn’t gotten a little more tick this season? The little we have seen of him this year he has showed some promise!

Yes!!! Rolling inbounds passes will save us!
 
ADLR is the most unstable 7' center Ive ever seen.
Until you’ve gone thru an ACL reconstruction, you likely wouldn’t understand. He’s done what he could all season long, despite trying to come back from a horrible injury. Expecting anything more than what he’s given is simply unrealistic.
 
No excuses next year if kofi shows up and ayo is back...this is getting old...alma otters indeed

Yeah, I get it. I'm starting to fall into the camp of "I wish all those minutes went to Samba" at this point.

have to believe he’s just not that good... yet. Hopefully he bulks up and improves. Lawd knows we need the size.

Agree with this post and, except for the dumb fouls the last couple of games, I've really liked ADLR's effort ...

That said, except for a few games probably a month ago when he looked like he had a "lucid body" interval, ADLR has looked vulnerable and to be as much trouble as benefit all year. It seems BU looks as at ADLR with different glasses than I have on.
 
System? Coaching? If you know of a game plan that can produce results with this type of effort and execution, you’re wasting your talents by posting on a message board.
 
In case you’ve forgotten in last 6 weeks - this is the furious comeback that inevitably comes up short.
 
Our "pressure" defense hasn't created much pressure lately. We aren't going to win many games giving up more turnovers than the other team, especially when they only have 6. Oh and we let them shoot over 50%. Maybe teams have figured out how to play against us

Griffin is playing a lot better. That's a big deal going into next year. He really needs to be that knockdown shooter that they're sorely missing.
