Yes and no.  Markus was more unreal than ever shooting, but the rest of his game was, uh, not good.

Post by: MomofMUltiples on January 09, 2019, 08:45:00 PM
Markus. Sam might have made the split second shot, but Markus shot 15-26 with 10 3’s, six assists and 1 block. I think that outweighs his 9 turnovers. If every one of them had counted for 3, that’s 27 points lost from 53=26 so still shot above average.

He could have had 12-14 assists tonight if he could figure out a way to pass it to Theo or Ed diving to the basket after setting a high screen.  They were wide open 6-8 times easily.

Markus.  Honestly, he has to be first team AA, right?  Nobody since Pistol Pete can score like that.  Admittedly, he need to continue to work on other parts of his game.  Know that he will.

Post by: Marcus92 on January 09, 2019, 09:42:33 PM
Markus. No way around 53 points, 10-14 (!) from 3-point range, 6 assists, 13-15 from the line, and a block for good measure. He scored half of Marquette's points. If that isn't the performance of a stud, I don't know what is. Even with 9 turnovers (which I suspect might be a Marquette record).

Markus, but Sam's shot will be remembered for a long, long time. The drama of waiting for a final ruling recalls the late Jerome Whitehead's finish at the Omni in 77 during the semi's for us old-timers. Seconds minutes, go by. Everyone looking at the scorer's table....then sea shells and balloons for the MU faithful.
Don't forget Markus got the ball over the trees so he good launch it. Way to go Sam!

I’d argue that airballed three should have been called a foul instead. Which would have been 10/13.

He 100% was fouled, guy clearly got him on the arm. As difficult as officiating basketball is, that was a pretty bad miss for the ref who was standing just a few feet away.

I mean come on ... Markus swished about 348 straight 3s from every angle with guys draped all over him ... and now he's short by 5 feet on one without getting fouled?

If the season ended today, it would be highway robbery if he didn't get BE POY and first team AA.

Saw on the tube last night somebody (can't remember who - maybe from CBS?) had Markus third on his national POY list, behind Zion and Murray State's Morant.

Hard to believe national media would pick a guy from Murray State who is averaging fewer points than a guy from Marquette, but nonetheless it certainly means Markus is an AA at this point.

Maybe Matt Norlander? Morant leads the nation in assists at 9.9/game in addition to his 23.3 ppg. He won't win NPOY on a Murray State team that might not even win their conference (Belmont is also solid) but he's a heck of a player.

The announcer immediately afterwards said "That's not a foul! Just an airball".

That along with the non-explanation of the missed out of bounds call in OT had me losing my damn mind.

Wade had 10 TOs vs UAB in the 2003 C-USA quarterfinals.

Wow. How'd you turn up that stat? I looked and couldn't find it. But I did run across this quote from James Harden after he set an all-time NBA record for most turnovers (13!) in a 2015 playoff game:

"I put so much pressure on myself to be really good every single night. And in some cases, you're not going to do that. You're not going to be good."

Rockets head coach Kevin McHale added, "Look, James didn't play well. But as I've said all year long, we don't win the division, we don't win 56 games...if it wasn't for how James played all year long."

Sometimes there's an advantage watching from a bar with no volume available.

Thanks for that info. Sounds like a fine player. I don't watch too many Murray State games (translation: I have only watched one in my life, the time we beat them in the NCAA tournament during Buzz's tenure), but this kid sounds good.

If you're going Vander against Davidson, you should add Vander against StJ.  DJO against Cuse, Junior against UCONN could be there too.  Team hadn't hit one all day before then.  I believe that was also the game where the refs had the teams going the wrong way in OT.

Busy couple days.  Obviously Howard.  But as the game went on, I really did want others to be recognized.

Sam for being a stud even before nailing the 3 for OT. 
Joey for hitting FTs (and doing generally good Joey things).
Joe for hitting FTs (confidently).
Theo for an and 1 (at a crucial moment).

I showed (read: forced to watch) my daughter's boyfriend, who plays HS hoops, the last few minutes of the game plus OT.   He was stunned and could only basically say "No way!" as Markus hit shot after shot, and "Theo!" for his three great defensive plays.
