    Selection Committee Games of Interest

    UCF - Wichita St just had some drama
  2. By the way, the only two players on this list that are transfers are Palmer and Copeland. All the rest are playing for the team that recruited them out of high school.

    Roby (is Good)

    If you take away the Wisconsin road game where he only played 17 minutes with foul trouble, here are Isaiah Roby's last 6 games: vs Iowa: 30 mins, 17 pts, 8 reb, 3 blocks, 2 assists, 1 TO @ Minn: 34 mins, 21 pts, 8 reb, 5 blocks, 2 assists, 1 TO vs Rutg: 27 mins, 10 pts, 11 reb, 2 blocks, 2 assists, 1 TO vs Mary: 32 mins, 11 pts, 10 reb, 3 blocks, 1 assist, 1 TO @ Illinois: 32 mins, 14 pts, 10 reb, 3 blocks, 2 assists, 3 TO vs Ind: 35 mins, 11 pts, 9 reb, 1 block, 2 assists, 2 TO For an average of: 31.7 MPG, 14.0 PPG, 9.3 RPG, 2.8 BPG, 1.8 APG, 1.5 TPG ...that'll play.
  6. Speaking of Roby, he played a team-leading 35 minutes tonight. His improvement in staying on the court and affecting the game in all the ways he does is probably under-reported.
  7. If we are sitting at 23-8 before the BTT, we might be ranked in the top-25. Historically those teams don’t land that low in seeding because they are passing the eye test. i mean, technically speaking...a #24 ranked team would be a 6-seed, if the two lined up. i know that the committee doesn’t use that info, but I just struggle seeing a top-25 team relegated to a play-in game. I think with 24 wins we are an 8 seed
  8. Copeland had a rebound late in the game that was - dare I say it - mansized. His head looked higher than the rim. He’s a pretty decent athlete.

    With our next win

    So, 5 games left with 4 at home. NU sits at 18-8 (9-4). With one more win, they will clinch a winning conference record. That is RARE for NU BB. Previous winning conference records in the last 35 seasons: 2013-14 (Big Ten): 11-7 [Made NCAA tourney] 1998-99 (Big 12): 10-6 [Made NIT] 1997-98 (Big 12): 10-6 [Made NCAA tourney] 1992-93 (Big 8): 8-6 [Made NCAA tourney] 1990-91 (Big 8): 9-5 [Made NCAA tourney] 1985-96 (Big 8): 8-6 [Made NCAA tourney] The point is, this doesn't happen very often around here. And when it has...it has usually led to NCAA berths. Lets hope that continues. #GBR
  10. Great comment. I was pleasantly surprised by how good the students did. They sounded like a real announcing crew.

    Bakari Evelyn Transferring

    Whomever we fill in the roster with, I hope they can play good perimeter defense. We need more guys with length that can do that.
  12. This isn't entirely fair because roles are different, but discuss: 2014-2015 vs 2015-2016: SG Terran Petteway: (35.0 MPG) 18.2 PPG (39.8% FG), 4.9 RPG, 2.8 APG, 1.1 SPG, 0.9 BPG, 3.4 TOV Vs SG Andrew White: (28.0 MPG), 16.9 PPG (51.6% FG), 6.1 RPG, 0.8 APG, 1.0 SPG, 0.5 BPG, 1.8 TOV PG Tarin Smith: (17.6 MPG), 4.5 PPG (45.5% FG), 1.6 RPG, 0.7 APG, 0.6 SPG, 0.3 BPG, 0.8 TOV Vs PG Glynn Watson: (22.2 MPG), 8.1 PPG (38.9%), 1.9 RPG, 2.6 APG, 1.3 SPG, 0.1 BPG, 1.1 TOV SF David Rivers: (23.6 MPG), 4.3 PPG (47.7% FG), 4.2 RPG, 0.7 APG, 0.4 SPG, 0.2 BPG, 0.5 TOV Vs SF Jack McVeigh: (17.0 MPG), 5.4 PPG (38.7% FG), 3.1 RPG, 1.0 APG, 0.6 SPG, 0.1 BPG, 0.8 TOV PF Walter Pitchford: (27.1 MPG), 7.2 PPG (37.8% FG), 4.6 RPG, 0.5 APG, 0.3 SPG, 0.5 BPG, 1.1 TOV Vs PF Michael Jacobson: (15.3 MPG), 4.2 PPG (46.2% FG), 3.6 RPG, 0.6 APG, 0.6 SPG, 0.6 BPG, 0.6 TOV PF Leslee Smith: (12.6 MPG), 3.1 PPG (46.0% FG), 3.1 RPG, 0.5 APG, 0.6 SPG, 0.5 BPG, 0.9 TOV Vs PF Ed Morrow: (14.1 MPG), 3.7 PPG (62.7% FG), 3.6 RPG, 0.1 APG, 0.0 SPG, 0.7 BPG, 1.2 TOV
  13. Wondering where you all think last night's win at #11 MSU ranks amongst the best wins in MIles' tenure. Taking into account quality of opponent, pressure of opportunity, stakes, style of play, luck, etc. I think I would have this win as the second-best win of his tenure. I would say that the infamous No-Sit-Sunday hosting No. 9 Wisconsin in 2013-14 was the best win he's had...purely due to the level of play, quality of opponent, and stakes. But this road win I would argue was just as good, if not better, than our road win at No. 9 Michigan St two years ago. We won with offense, largely without our top scorer, and the opponent went 11-18 for 3-pt range. Their best player Valentine played great. And we still won. Thoughts?

    Andrew White III

    All of this discussion and we haven't really even discussed how athletic and strong a rebounder he is. For a guy that isn't "explosive" on the offensive end, the dude is swiping defensive rebounds well above the rim. He crashes the boards hard.
