U(gh, so)M(any) B(ri)C(ks) thoughts
« on: November 06, 2018, 10:12:10 PM »
1.   If MU shoots an expected percentage from 3, this is a 35-40 point laugher. 
2.   UMBC is from the American East.   They had a great run last year.   They are not a great team.   Don't make them more than they are. 
3.  Disappointed that MU did not flash a shooter to the foul line against the zone.   
4.  Sacar  and Markus are the only two who showed they can beat a man off the dribble tonight.    Joey tried, but did not finish.
5.  Sam did not look like he had 100% lift yet.   
6.  Theo DID look like had 100% lift.  Double double.   Good on ya, young man. 
7.  The defensive intensity was there
8.  Joey and Brendan... I thought Joey looked a little slow.   Brendan was better on defense.   They are both going to be very good. 
9.  The PG situation gives me pause.   Markus is better off the ball.   Chartouny is not fully acclimated yet. 
10.   When you are 3 happy.... and not hitting 3's... MU stood around too much on the perimeter.
11.  Opponents are still going to work to have Markus switch onto a big.    The good news is that most of our wings can defend the perimeter.   And that we have more size coming from the corner when they throw the lob to the big. 
12.  Heldt at garbage time.  I don't like that at all. 
13.   I am not going to worry about the margin.   This game was never in doubt.   MU played good defense and shot poorly.    Words rarely typed recently. 
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Marquette beats UMBC 67-42. Defensive eFG% for #mubb tonight was 27.4%. That appears to be their best since 27.3% on December 29, 2007.

Got good looks, they didn't fall.  Other than the lull in the middle of the first half, thought we played well overall.  The defense looked much improved.  Just the length and physicality on the court is a big improvement.

Very encouraged.  We won't see Sam and Markus shoot that poorly very often at all.

It was a fine, but not perfect start. I see a lot of potential but a lot of work to do. Newcomers are still going to take awhile to get into the flow. Not sure what to think about Heldt.

Yeah.  I'll be interested if Wojo gets asked about that in post game.

Wojo is in the business of winning basketball games.  He knows what Heldt is going to give him every night.  He doesn't know what young and new guys are going to bring him every night.  Sure it's nice to get lesser players minutes against cupcakes, but when you're going on the road to Indiana in 8 days, I'd rather get the more talented players as many minutes together as possible to try to get some sort of flow together.

Maybe Wojo is waiting to unleash a brand new Super Heldt to reign terror down upon Indiana.

I am a big Heldt fan . The Coach will play him at the appropriate time in the season. Morrow Theo Joey and Bailey need the reps right now.

He is not going to say that Morrow, Theo and Joey are much better players than Matt.  But in reality thats probably the reason.

Besides Tower’s stuff, I liked no foul issues, especially no fouls 40 feet from basket on switches.  Hope that trend continues.

Disagree with #4. Sam had a nice drive with a pretty finish in the first half.

Defense looks so much better. Need to see it against a real opponent but the rotations and help defense is night and day better.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

I agree, he did not look great. I thought he would be a dominant force down low. So far he is NOT as advertised.

Morrow had no points, no rebounds and two turnovers

Joe C. did not make a shot, had two free throws and two assists.

Just getting the rust off.

They're going to need a guy willing and able to take it to the rack this year. Otherwise, teams are going to camp on the 3 ball.

Bonus observation: our band seems even worse than it's been in recent years

Nice recap, Tower. KenPom predicted a 20-point win, we won by 25. It was ugly on offense, but that's the last thing I'm worried about with this team. Need more consistent movement and passing. Shooting will be there. Despite some mix-ups on switches and rotations early, Marquette played strong team defense, forced a lot of desperate shots and rebounded well. I'll take it.

Morrow looked to be about 6’4 out there with no hops.  Played poorly.  Surprised Heldt didnt get more of his time,  morrow looked lost n did nothig.

Chartouney struggled to scote but his defense, ball handling n passing were really good

Joe C sunk a beautiful long-range 3-pointer (Rowsey-esque, even!) that didn’t count because it was after a foul. So we know he can do it.
