I wish Greg was a 3 point shooter.

This team dunks a lot.

This team passes the ball exceedingly well

Taking care of business. No one would be happier to see Greg do this every night. I would gladly admit I was wrong on Greg as the season moves on.

-- Great early 2H effort from DM got MU out to a good start.
-- Stevie with excellent D. Also liked that they started running a 2nd guy at F-L to force the ball out of his hands.
-- A number of frosh heat checks
-- Oso really active on D
-- Can't fault DePaul's overall effort. Couldn't tell if they were bad defensively or if MU is just clicking, or some of both

Absolutely have to work on the rebounding even if it sacrifices some of the breakouts - this would’ve been a 30 point win had they been even competent on the defensive glass.  The ball movement continues to be fantastic and is such a refreshing change from the previous era.  And love to see Greg being Greg.

Or you could do that now, which would actually make sense.

Lewis still went for 13/5/3/3/1

I have to admit, I was surprised to see DePaul had hired Scatman Crothers as their head coach.

Refs suck.
Grab a damn rebound!

2. Do you mean, just shoot, don't drive? I still feel nervous when he attacks the basket, though certainly not as much as in years past. He is best as a spot-up shooter. Yes, a 3-point shooter.

5. I said during the game that he was again "out of sorts." Being so on-off is concerning to me.

9. Bring it on. And let's all be realistic about how it goes.

Greg has had a few wild passes mixed in but his passing the last few games has been awesome.

And I think he’s gotta keep driving a bit. Keeps the D honest and out of his face. Also he’s a great free throw shooter if he draws fouls.

But yes, main priority spot up daggers

He did hit 2 nice midrange jumpers after putting it on the floor.

I agree, and thought to temper my comment with having seen that. So, my nuance is that his improvement is visible in faking the three and moving in for a mid-range shot. He's not (yet) consistent getting into the lane and being unsure whether he should shoot or pass (and whether he should look to pass down low or back out to the perimeter). So, I stuck with him being a spot up shooter.

On 1- disagree
On 2- agree
On 3- I’m not sure. I will say one of the things that strikes me as strange is that it seems like Shaka doesn’t really hammer the rebounding issues as much as you’d expect. I’ve wondered before if that’s by design or what the play is on that, it intrigues me.

On 4,5,6- We’ve always thought that we would have a hard time winning without two of Justin, TyKo, Morsell having great games. Tyler was good passing but him and Justin weren’t as big of a difference maker as they have been in the recent past, but Darryl was fantastic today. I actually think that’s a good thing that MU can win a game like that with several of the others playing very well.

On 8- yes, but I think the most important part of tonight’s game was the passing.Recently, it has been phenomenal and it was again tonight. The vision, the execution, the ingenuity in some of the ball movement has been just fantastic.
A far cry from the stagnant chuck up a quick three within the first 10 seconds of the clock that we saw for several of the games earlier this season.

On 9- let’s go!

My wife, who never takes an interest in games, did a double take and said that is the best hyphenated name ever.

So Greg needs to get his 3-point percentage up to .750 for you? .500 this season and .472 over two seasons doesn't cut it?

Sorry, Goose, but nobody can "do this every night." Steph Curry has gone 8-for-40 (.200) his last four games; that stretch included a 1-for-10 game, a 1-for-9 game and a 2-for-9 game tonight. Two of his misses were airballs, and another hit the side of the backboard (as shown the other night in an ESPN montage of him "struggling"). By your bizarre definition from the other day, the airballs mean he's "not a 3-point shooter" ... except we know that Steph's the greatest shooter in basketball history.

Most of us have enjoyed seeing your optimistic side this season, so it's doubly odd that this is the negative hill you want to die on.

I mean, Greg will have a 1-for-6 game because he's only human and 3-point shooting is not automatic, even for the greatest shooters ever. It could even happen on Saturday ... and I guess you'll get to say I told you so.
“A lot of the stuff that we believe in and that I’ve always believed in — it takes time. It’s not a quick fix. It’s not an instant-gratification thing. It’s a drip-by-drip process.”

Stevie has always been a hellion on defense. Today we got to see some of the passing chops as well. That Mitchell to Kolek to Ighodaro series was a thing of beauty. If Mitchell can find his scoring touch he may be a player yet
