  1. I'd agree. I didn't get that either until he said it on his morning radio show.
  2. Dec 9th, 2019 Show #6 - Hoiberg on the road, then Gates Hoiberg recaps the Georgia Tech and Creighton games Georgia Tech: had a large Nebraska crowd, weren't really aggressive in the first half as we went to the FT line 0 times Creighton: Stagnant on the offensive end which led to poor shot selection which fed the Jay's transition game. They were confident and were going down hill. We started chasing rebounds instead of getting back on D, which you can't do against Creighton. In the 2nd half we were attacking the rim and getting into our sets...unfortunately we were trading baskets. We got it down to 17 and Burke gets a steal that goes off the ref's foot. Responded well on Monday with a really good practice and will play on Friday and Sunday Talked about the 2 timeouts he called in a row because guys weren't getting back in transition which was the game plan Thor started because Mack was a minute late. Went on to talk about his time as a player under Larry Bird where Bird told the team he had never been late in his NBA career for anything and this was what he expected from the team. Hoiberg has the philosophy that if Bird, a top 10 player can be on time for everything, then there is no excuse for anyone playing for him to be late and thus it was an easy call to not start Mack. Went on to compliment Thor about his work in the off-season and you're seeing that pay off in his shot, confidence, and that he's rarely out of position defensively. Sharp asks about the lack of finishing off the rim. Hoiberg notes that players are taking shots off-balance and it's impacting their accuracy. There are times where we penetrate into the lane and we should kick to an open shooter on the backside but instead try to shoot the ball over a defender. Thought we were great in the second half vs Creighton because we were attacking North-South. They work on finishing drills every day. HCFH talked about rivalries and how much he loved playing in those games vs Iowa. He rattles off his record of 3-1 vs Iowa as a player and specifically mentions the loss as a sophomore where he played poorly. States his 4-1 record as a coach and called them 4 of the best wins of his coaching career. (As you can tell, he is very much about rivalries and beating rivals) Gets into upcoming games: Indiana really guards you and they have physicality at all positions. It will be a completely different game than vs the Jays who wanted to go up and down and shoot 3s. The Hoosiers will beat you up a little and crash the boards. So instead of trying to get back and find shooters we're going to have to keep them off the glass. Noted that Purdue beat a slow team like Virginia by a lot of points which is tough to do. They have a ton of size and they're physical. ----------- Some nuggets from Gates Thor and Easley are often the first two guys in for practice Morning practice helps for being able to get somewhere for recruiting if needed and making sure that guys are getting to bed on time They want Kavas to keep shooting when he's open, don't hesitate Burke needs to stay locked in and don't gamble because that will get him pulled off the court Gates thinks that Arop is the only player not redshirting that has elite B1G athleticism. (He said a couple of guys sitting out has that)

What does a lineup with Kavas at center do against a team like Indiana that rolls out frontline consisting of 6'9"+ 245+ dudes? The hope would have to be that we outscore it because they most likely eat us alive inside.
  4. It would seem the point that Sipple was trying to make was 'how many bad losses can you take this season before you stop caring about the team until next year' and conveyed this poorly enough that no one understood it this way.
  5. He's one of the Jucos there for grades not to improve his D-1 stock so this isn't happening
  6. I enjoy the phenomenon that if you are able to get a picture with Steph Curry this legitimizes your shooting ability
  7. Might be sore about scooping the Izzone
  8. In theory Green or Burke could function as PGs but I don't think the results would be that great.
  9. ** Two open scholarships ** PG Cam Mack - JR Dalano Banton - SO (Conceivably could slot as a SF defensively) Guard/Wing Dachon Burke - SR (SG/ SF) Jervay Green - SR (SG/ SF) Thorir Thorbjarnarson - SR (SG/ SF) Akol Arop - SO (SG/ SF) Donovan Williams - FR (SG/ SF) ForwardCenter Shamiel Stephenson - JR (PF / Small Ball 5) Kevin Cross - SO (PF / Small ball 5) Derrick Walker - JR (center only, cant' shoot 3s) Yvan Ouedraogo - SO (center only, cant' shoot 3s) The latest from Hoiberg has been 'we're looking for the best available. TBH that probably works because maybe our most pressing need is other Guard/Wing since we will graduate a lot of firepower (we have secured Tominaga for 2021-22). Also wouldn't be a bad idea to develop another PG or PF/C. Do we have enough talent to compete? If so transfers might be the answer because we're looking at 10-11 guys.

  11. The Rock Bottom Christmas tournament runs from Dec 21 to Dec 29th
  12. If you take away the numerous blown shots/layups etc from the first half I felt it really boiled down to Creighton selling out to get back on defense and us not putting in the effort to do so. I know I can find this in the 2nd half when we called two timeouts in under a minute. Yvan and Cross combined for 7 minutes in the 2nd half. Was that because Bishop wasn't playing due to foul trouble? Us trying to catch up? Effort?
