BU...."Trent, are you going to hit them?"

TF....."Yeah coach"

Result.....almost two air balls.

The life of a coach. What the split screen has shown is that was ticks BU off the most is the missed free throws and bunnies. He tries to stay positive. Has to be maddening.

Overall....good half

I’ll take that 10/10. Foul differential favors us in a hostile environment, and we have a 4 point lead despite missed FTs and missed lay-ups. Hope those don’t come back to bite us. Defensively, we’ve been good. It’ll help to have Kofi back, but counterpunch: Stevens back in the game. Also, never seen TF tense up like that on free throws. Never easy to shoot technical FTs though. Oh well.

By my count, we could easily be up 10, lol. The good news is our overall play has been good, and they’re in as much foul trouble as we are. Gotta get that killer instinct and capitalize more in the second half.

Keep fighting!

About as good of a first half as one could hope, given Kofi foul trouble, missed FTs, and Giorgi's missed bunnies.

I hope the officials don't try to even things up, just call the game not the foul situation.
 
#137      
Only concern right now is that we could have been up by a few more and they've gotten nothing out of Stephens. Have to keep in check....as much as possible.

Ped state seems to have had a pretty favorable schedule so far - wonder if I am just imagining that... We should be up 10 right now. Giorgi needs to stop pressing. He's really in his head too much.

I’m never a fan of getting on here and complaining about guys missing free throws... we know they’re practicing them, and it’s not a lack of effort. Sometimes it happens, and sometimes guys get in their own heads. Easy for us to say “make the free ones” from our couches. Get after a guy for his lack of effort before you blame him for missing a shot. Let’s win this damn game.

King of platitudes is the coach from PSU. Underwood is so much more specific with his commentary. I really appreciate that.

Another 20 minutes like that with more Kofi and I feel pretty confident.

Especially with the Ice Man back.

Kofi and Giorgi both need to dunk the ball when in close. At least twice they had clear path but tried to lay it in rather than throw it down and missed.

Agreed. In HS, my back side used to clench in front of 700 people. Being at the line alone with 10,000 + eyeballing you.....not easy.

When you're that short(and are a good shooter), it's a sign that he's wound too tight. In a gym, he goes 95 out of 100. With stress, almost two air balls. Ayo probably needs to take all techs.

despite all the complaints about screen size .... i'm enjoying the all access immensely.
