Just got killed on the glass by the best team in the league on the glass. Not a great match up for GB. IUPUI seems like a good candidate to play in the CBI/CIT as they have not been to the postseason in forever.
For the IUPUI fan: does IUPUI have a board? I haven't found one but it would be nice if one was started.
I have a hunch that one out of two this weekend will be enough for a home game- it does not guarantee it though. The GB/NKU game is the only one on Saturday being played at noon. The rest are late afternoon tips.
For a team that continues to get killed on the glass, I don’t see Linc and staff recruiting any size. Atleast bring a project in to work with and maybe by their junior or senior year they can give you solid minutes.
The inconsistency of this team is maddening. It's amazing that this team is in 3rd place right now......but have to play the top 2 teams in the HL this week. We shall see what happens. Maybe we lose to WSU, but blow out NKU?
After some review and watching some games over and over, I know exactly what our issue is now. We have to many guys on the floor at the same time that can't shoot from outside and can only make hustle baskets and the better coached teams know that now.
They are good if we are able to get out and run but in the half court offense, it just clogs up the middle and we look like we have no offense and in reality, the teams are not respecting 2 or 3 of our guys ability to hit a 15 footer. This clogs the middle and the guys who can drive have no where to go because they just run into 2 or three guys.
Now, we really need to make a decision, is the extra couple run outs worth it? You can see our scoring is down with this lineup over the last 3 or 4 games even though the defense looks better is it really better if it hinders our offense? Guys can't get to the basket except for fast breaks because teams are not respecting our ability to hit jumpers with certain line ups.
If we can find the happy medium, I believe we can still win the tournament.
Also, we have to decide on the pick and roll to either go under or trail and make one guy continue to score all the points, the switching is allowing both guys in the pick and roll to get going and we need to eliminate one and make the other one have to score 60 points instead of giving both 20 or 25 together... Coming up, both the final games will be a lot of pick an rolls but neither really want to run with us so if we put the right line up out, with the right substitutions at time, we can win both games...
