Roby (is Good)

Recommended Posts

We are going to need some guys to give us hustle stuff and d to fill in the fifth spot and reserve minutes, although we should always be able to have plenty of scoring out there.

Let me know if you have any questions about the chart.  This is a chart that shows Roby's production from game 1 to his last game which is 62 total.

I have one.  Why is the red part so low for so much of this?

Especially when you haven’t mentioned the likely best shooter(Allen) who should get plenty of good looks with all of our penetration ability.  

 

Yeah, TA is a good shooter.  Agree with what you say here.  A shooter like Allen in the mix will really force defenses to pick their poison.

 

I was lurking over on that other board and there were some ignoramuses talking like they knew something about basketball and one of them completely blew any credibility he had.  They were bagging on Thomas Allen, with one of the guys saying he "needs to improve..... a whole bunch to sniff increased minutes in major conference basketball."  Then, he claimed, "Tim's offense is the EXACT same "motion" set Doc ran."  But, the real doozy was when someone said Allen was basically nothing but a 3-point specialist who was a defensive liability, and this genius claimed, "With a slow release."

 

I'm sorry, but I've watched an awful lot of Thomas Allen shooting.  He does NOT have a slow release.  At all.  This was just an example, I'm sure, of some guy who knows nothing about hoops, but has heard people talk about "slow releases" in the past, just parroting what he's heard other people say in order to try to sound like he knows what he's talking about.

 

For those who have no clue, this is NOT a slow release:

Yeah.  Thing about Watson, as I showed yesterday, is that he had basically the same number of attempts soph and jr year but, because he shot the ball so much better from 3-point range as a soph, his scoring was a lot better.  Same attempts, basically.  

 

So, Glynn wouldn't need to steal shot attempts from anyone in order to up his production.  All he needs to do is connect at the rate he connected at when he was a sophomore.  I think we'll see a more confident Glynn Watson doing just that this coming season.

 

And if Glynn RETURNS to 40% from three, and Isaiah STAYS at 40% from three, and Copeland REACHES 40% from three, who do you try to stop when you're defending them?

 

If that happens, we are Michigan last season.  We weren't far off from being as good as them last year.  They had a slightly more talented roster and more experienced coach, but there weren't big differences between our programs.  I felt the same way about Purdue.  It should come as no surprise that we'll be ranked to start the season, and I believe it will remain that way.

That is one only Tim Miles can answer... Sorry for any inconvenience 😉

 
I remember Robe getting into foul trouble often early in the season, so he had to set on the bench.  At the start of the year he moved to playing Center and also quit fouling.  His minutes went up.

W the talent and the perceived coaching chops of Gates when it comes to shooting I would be shocked if we don’t have 5 or 6 guys shooting over 35 percent from 3 point land. W roby,Copeland,Allen all approaching 38+ percent. 

 

I am hopeful we can keep up the team free throw percentage from last year as well, having all the regulars aside from jordy shooting in the 70s last year was such a luxury
