Because we are only 2 games behind them and we will be the best team PSU has played at home since their fans finally realized they had a good team. They have been a little late to the party, unlike Rutgers fans.Why will playing Illinois create their craziest atmosphere ever?
Minny challenged them at Penn on 8 Feb..gave PSU a game..its doable.Not as confident in this one. Stevens is a tough cover for any team, but I’m not sure we have anyone to slow him down. Maybe DaMonte, but there’s a serious height and weight advantage there for PSU.
Lets just avoid another injury and maybe (hopefully, please) steal a W.
This. Go back and watch some 2005 highlights ... those players were obviously very talented, but they didn’t just dominate by taking players one on one or making circus shots. They looked like any other average to good team until - before the other team knew it - their constant passing and moving off the ball produced multiple open looks, looks that we capitalized on. We stayed in games with our defense and offensive talent, but we put teams away night after night with good passing and hitting open shots.We can beat Penn State if we pass the ball more effectively and get better looks. Most of our shots from outside are contested. Gee Maryland crushed Michigan State down the stretch, 3 different players, hitting five 3's, largely as a result of good passing.
Wouldn't it be great to have the Kipper who put up 31 in the BTT 2 years ago (and 27 vs MSU)? We could win this one if THAT Kipper shows up (and plays defense like he has this year)I would not be surprised to see Underwood start Kipper to match up against Stevens. We need the length, athleticism and the fouls.
It’s about time we rain on someone else’s parade. Play with a chip.Because we are only 2 games behind them and we will be the best team PSU has played at home since their fans finally realized they had a good team. They have been a little late to the party, unlike Rutgers fans.
Even when they had decent bubble teams their home court was pretty quiet.
