18 and 13 means we only win seven Out of 15 Big Ten games I’ll take big money on that .Problem with this breakdown is that winning all of the "have to"s and the "should"s leaves us at 18-13. I don't think that's good enough to keep us off the bubble. It MAY still be good enough to get in, but it will definitely be on the bubble.
Don't see the logic there. So you don't need Kofi or Giorgi late? Because they were both out there with 2 fouls at the time. Hindsight's a beautiful thing when you have it?Which was early on and you can't leave AG on the floor with two fouls because you're going to need him late....which played out pretty well.
Ayo said it postgame and so did Wood.....Rutgers is our focus and nobody is overlooking them after the streak they've been on. Frankly, you can't take a single team for granted, it's a meat grinder of a conference schedule.Ayo made the clutch shots at the end but AG's clutch 3s set us up. Great win for our program. Let's not underestimate Rutgers.
Clearly you’ve never coachedDon't see the logic there. So you don't need Kofi or Giorgi late? Because they were both out there with 2 fouls at the time. Hindsight's a beautiful thing when you have it?
This debate has already gone on longer than I think it's worth. Like I said, it was overall a well coached game. I'll just end my take with this - with all the productivity AG had, he had the 6th most minutes on the team. Some of that was due to fouls, but tired lungs wasn't the issue there. I've been a DMW supporter all season. I see the value he provides even if he's not scoring. But if he's not scoring and he's not effective on defense, then you should consider making an adjustment. If it's the case where an opposing player is just playing unconscious, then you may not be able to do much defensively, but you can at least try to make it up offensively. For a coach that will pull a player after 30 seconds on the floor for getting a foul (TJ), I just found it weird that he'd let that happen without any adjustments.
How many of those trips to the foul line, did we miss the front end and not get a second shot. Those are the unaccounted for killers.Well ...........................
For every 2 attempts at the line, we would have got 1 point out of the effort.
So, we got 15 attempts, made 8. IF we had got 23 (which is what WI got), we would have made 12 and won by 5 points and not 1.
So, they should have not fouled us at all and taken their chances at a lower %age in FGs.
