  1. I thought we saw the best basketball we've seen all year from Stevenson last night. He got off to a bit of a rough start, but we saw more from him that looked more like what I was expecting to see from him. Hopefully he builds off it and settles more into his role here.
  2. First Half: The Derrick Walker era is here! I thought he actually looked pretty good. And the action was fast and furious, lol. NU pretty sloppy with the ball early. McGowens tried to literally take on the IU whole team on the break. It predictably didn't end well. Later he got past the whole defense, and on my tv at least, appeared to have a pretty clear layup, but passed it out. Lat looking more comfortable the past couple games. Still not sold on Banton being a great point guard...he might be NU's best option, though, IDK... Hoosiers were l
  3. - Another decent first half effort. - Nice to see Webster hit some shots. - Teddy is starting out games offensively great, but he can't keep from picking up fouls and some really needless ones, at that. It's killing the team. They need him on the court. He also lets mistakes affect his defense, his head drops and he gets lazy. - Really impressed with McGowens today on both ends. - I'm not really convinced Banton is what we need/want at PG. He's got some PG skills, but I think I'd rather see him not initiate the offense regularly. He does so much good on the court, but I w
  4. Thank goodness for the one free game. I really thought I put my guess in for this one...
  5. 8 of their 9 came in the second half, no less. Offensive rebounds were a huge factor.
  6. If this year's team plays like they did tonight, they might win all 20 going away.

  8. - Got an early 3 from Lat. Hopefully that means good things. - OSU tried to back Yvan into the paint and he didn't budge. I really like what I'm seeing from him in B1G play. He shouldn't try to drive, though... - Middle of the first half turned into a rec legue game. Lots of bad shooting on both sides. - I have no answer to the scoring droughts... - Several shots that felt like a 15 point attempt. Way too impatient on offense. - This feels like a nice summation: - McGowens doesn't stop playing. Gotta give him that, at least. - Teddy can't stay out of fou
  9. I remember they called it a bunch at the start of whatever season it was when they either put the rule in place or maybe just made it a rule of emphasis. The frequency of that call waned as they season when on and it basically back to the level it was before the at. I’ll see it more as the signal for making a no call then actually making it a foul or whatever.

  11. I'm not very good at watching things like this and being able to tell you what's wrong or what needs to be fixed, so I'll relay on what I heard from people who I think do know more about that (I'd credit where I heard the conversation, but I don't remember where it was, it was somewhere on the radio after the Wisconsin game, I think...). They were talking about him largely needing to work on his footwork when he gets the ball on the block. He isn't giving himself a good base to start from, therefore struggles with consistency. If/when that gets figured out, he should find a lot more success do
  12. Myles Johnson is also in his fourth year in the program, and while I can't find his date of birth, I'm guessing he didn't start his collegiate career at age 17. Yvan actually wasn't that far off from what Johnson did after having a redshirt year. I don't know if Yvan will take advantage of having an extra year of eligibility, but I think the ceiling for Yvan is still a ways off. I've like what I've seen from him the past few games. I think him and Andre could be a really nice tandem in the paint, something we haven't seen here in a very long time.
  13. Only got to see a little bit of this game down the stretch. - I saw them cut Michigan's lead to 4. - I saw they were 2-10 from 3 in the first half. They're not only bad from 3, they're regressing as the season is going along. That's not ideal. - They got to the foul line a lot down the stretch and I think they were something like 3-7. I wasn't able to watch that closely to know exactly what the real number was. They're going to get to the line a lot this year. If they can't convert, that's going to be a good thing for the other team. - Defense, rebounding and energy looked

  15. Merry Christmas! Got some great gifts from the fam this year, hopefully a win tonight will top it off!
  16. This one was fairly predictable. Started off well, looked like they could hang for a while but couldn't keep up vs. a skilled, experienced team. - It was a bizarre start to the game, but NU's energy and intensity really caused problems for Wisconsin. They were the aggressor and Wisconsin didn't seem to respond too well early. - NU didn't seem like the team with the inferior front court early. - What's the deal with Teddy's free throw shooting...? - Wisconsin finally settled in and started hitting some shots... - I like that Coach played him with two fouls, but T
