I don’t hate Kofi not scoring. Utilizing Kofi to score against a team like this doesn’t help us develop offensive flow in my opinion. Of course Kofi can score on this team. But getting Trent heated up and Kipper some points seems more valuable. That said, I want a Kofi double double

Yeah, I like we are taking care of business. But feed Kofi a bit more, run offense through him to get him some more touches and passing ability. Put Alan in. Use BBV and Jermaine Hamlin and kipper a bit more. Run offense. Stealing the ball at half court on a much smaller team to run the score up isn’t helping anyone.

If we aren’t going to run our offense and just play one on one then this game is pointless. Put Alan in and get the ball to Kofi. Also let Tev play.
Let’s assume BU didn’t forget Alan exists. He’s obviously sitting for a reason, as is Tev. I’d rather not go back to the days of weekly Illini arrests, so count me in favor of running a disciplined team with consequences.

Are you saying BU should coach Lindenwood? Or are you saying we shouldn’t have given a walk-on spot to a kid that already knew the system and helped everyone learn it?

Or are you saying a third thing that isn’t dumb?
No. Didn’t say either of those things. I’m saying a player of his caliber should be coming off the bench at a school like Lindenwood. And he should only be on said roster because his dad is the coach there.
His minutes and the way he gets them can’t look good from the outside.

Jesus, this is an !!!-whooping. Kofi getting into it now... Defense forcing turnovers at really high clip. 64-29.

Ok, I understand that. I don’t really agree, as I’ve been ok with TU usage this year, but would agree last year.

Sorry for the snarky reply earlier - I respect the opinion now that I understand it.

He is only in there because someone else is in trouble. No big deal. Last year, I was scratching my head at it too. Hopefully, Alan wasn’t late enough to keep him out the whole game.
