He took a hard shot to the face so I think he gets a passIf he shoots the free throws, he has to make them. I understand where you're coming from, but this is a guy we're touting for NPOY....has to make them. That said, he's been there for us all year, can't really get mad.
Apparently our coaching staff couldn't figure out that was going to be this kind of game.Izzo has his team doing what it needs to do to beat us...muck up the game and beat us up. We haven't taken advantage at the free throw line. They have pounded us on the boards too.
I respect your enthusiasm and support....but to win the National Title....or get to the FF...a team needs to consistently play competently to the point "everyone" is surprised when they make one of maybe 5 blunders in a game. This team has not shown that but on a couple of nights all season. 6 in a row has a probability for them that definitely starts with a single digit and maybe a decimal. But they can beat anyone on a given night. In the tourney, they may not get a chance to beat a higher seed.We may get there, but we look like a solid top 15 team tonight. We can turn it on and win it all. Looked like National Champs in 89 and '05 but were not. So I will hold out hope.
Missed free throws are what gets you upset in round one. It's been an issue all season. This isn't an "out of left field" occurrence.If the team made their free throws tonight, WE win this game.. that says alot about this team. play horrible and still should have won. missed free throws are all mental.. mentally tired.. this is a tough conference and the NCAA will be easier than the next 7-12 games for us
