His hook shots dropped well against Rutgers I believe. Just had an off night. He will be fineHe needs to keep coming in at the 5 for Kofi. House money he's been practicing away from basket at 4 since July. He's to good under the basket to keep missing. My hope is come Big10 tourney his hook shots start dropping like melted butter. like all of last season. He'll be fine, just needs to keep at it. Boy has never been able to guard in the post though, dating back to last season. He need to be taught, put your chest into the opposing center.
Has to be a frustrating night for Chambers. Highest ranking ever, playing great basketball, 1 game out of first place, and your home arena is only 60% full.Not really fair to compare Chambers to Groce, Chambers has done a really good job at PSU, not an easy place to coach. I absolutely loved being able to listen to both of them tonight, wish it was like this every night.
He could have taken DaMonte out. Everyone knows he doesn’t contribute cuz he can’t score. /sWe were up 8 and PSU made their run with Kipper and Griffin in the game. I think at that point he decided on the 5 who were going to play the rest of the game. Just because he played 17 minutes doesn't mean he didn't have a good game. He did his job well. BU is not going to take out Feliz, Trent, or Ayo in the last 7 min. Would you?
Trent shoots free throws by feel. With the long stoppage of play after the scrum, he got tight. He has a good routine, but to be consistent regardless of fatigue or if you are stiff or loose, you have to rely on the length and timing of the lift before release. Ayo is better in that regard, but has just a little bit too much lateral movement before getting into his lift to max. his efficiency. I would have both slow just a bit so their eyes get dead still and the ball gets centered and stopped before getting to the lift point and then all they need to do is work on the speed of the lift which would minimize the effect of their fatigue or stiffness factors. Both are good, both can get much better.And I think the right hand basket was the wrong height based on the free throw shots by Trent in the first and Stevens first free throw in the second ... In seriousness, Trent was acting like his shoulder was bugging him on both technical shots. That was weird seeing him leave two of them not just short but reaaaaaally short.
They had curtains blocking the upper deck ends. That said, Penn State is really in the middle of nowhere, a long way from Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Hard to get a big turnout on a weeknight.Capacity at Jordan Center 15,281 and tonight's announced attendance 9,506 or 62%....WTF
By playing to his strengths not his weaknesses. Dont take threes and get inside attacking the basket using his footwork and both hands. We need shooters like AG, TF or even Ayo feeding the post that must be guarded and GB needs to be on the glass and playing down low.What can BU due to get Big G OUT OF THE DUMPS
not as long as AG is on the floor. I would consider AF with Dre and Ayo because AG and Dre are so good on the glass and AG adds a little more size and to be honest ways and has been shooting better than tTF has lately i believe.. Last night we needed DW on the floor to cover sSevens. He played great on D.We were up 8 and PSU made their run with Kipper and Griffin in the game. I think at that point he decided on the 5 who were going to play the rest of the game. Just because he played 17 minutes doesn't mean he didn't have a good game. He did his job well. BU is not going to take out Feliz, Trent, or Ayo in the last 7 min. Would you?
I think that is where having Grandison next year will help. Having a 6'7 wing will help if he is ready to go along with Griffin.Giorgi and Kofi did not play one minute together last night. I think Giorgi's days of a 4 are over. This 4 guard and Kofi thing is really interesting to watch.
I believe Gandison is 6'6'' butt that will help. I do think he is more of a 3. I think what will help hopefully is a healthy Verdonk. Also as i mentioned earlier and was mentioned on BTN last night what the impact will be if and likely when in April the transfer rules about having to sit a year are changed. That will shake things up big time i would imagine in college hoops and increase the amount of transfer to fill in holes in a lot of teams line ups wit h experienced goof playersI think that is where having Grandison next year will help. Having a 6'7 wing will help if he is ready to go along with Griffin.
The story of the year in Big Ten is the huge step forward by Illinois, Penn State, and Rutgers. I don't mind rooting for our fellow (former) have nots, except when they play us. Still #NeverIndiana. Can't take any wins for granted, not even NW or Nebraska. IMO there are 14 good coaches now.I wrote a couple of weeks ago that Penn St. was a lot better than Illinois. I've never been happier to look so idiotic! Great game by Ayo, and great defensive game plan by the coaches, imo.
