  1. South Dakota St. beat Iowa 80-72 in the Cayman Island tournament today.
  2. I haven't seen St. Johns play. Are they primarily a man or a zone defensive team?
  3. 3 point shooting

    Copeland still seems to be shooting a flat shot. I have to wonder whether that is back and rusty legs and will improve over time. One thing I found interesting last night was that he shot one 3 after a whistle, shot it with a nice arc and it swished. Then on the next possession he shot from almost the same spot during play, the shot was flat and it bounced off the front rim. Oh, and I think I'm going to use the name "Rusty Legs" as the name of my next country-rock band.
  4. Interesting that Green doesn't dribble that ball or anything on the FT line. Gets the ball and shoots it.
  5. Remind me again which NU team has the prayer that ends "the team that won't be beat, can't be beat!".
  6. I really don't know what to say. Scared the hell out of all 3 of my Great Danes by jumping up screaming and tripping over the coffee table when Maryland's last shot missed (did I mention I had a couple of mimosa's minus the OJ during the game?)
  7. That was, IIRC, the only time I yelled at the TV (because we all know how effective that is) "don't leave your man like that Jeriah". But overall there is a big improvement in Jeriah's defense over the last few games. He is not nearly as stiff, which I now think was due to nervousness and maybe overthinking. Now he's more relaxed and much of that stiffness on D, which allowed him to get beat easily off the dribble, is gone.
  8. One little thing I enjoyed was watching the great stone face, Morrow, show some emotion a couple of times down the stretch. Oh, and what a monster game he played. He carves out space and nobody gets it back. The entire bench was really into it, not just the end sitters. Saw no pouting from McVeigh, which was also good.
  9. In the entire tournament traveling calls have become NBAesque.
