Bulldog mentality
« on: November 21, 2022, 09:47:57 PM »
1.  Anyone who said MU's defense isn't any good... you're dumb. 
2.  The offense.  Hit open shots and nobody complains.  Alas.
3.  Rebounding.   It is an issue.  It will be an issue.
4.  We finally saw the reason for the Sean excitement.
5.  Gold and Keeyan are going to have to figure it out.   Going small with Omax and Joplin is not going to work in large doses.
6. Like last year, no quit.
7.  A couple of calls at the end that didn't go MU's way.   
8.  A slog.    In the end, the lack of a go to scorer hurt.
9.  Weird game for Kolek.
10.  There for the taking again.   Hit open looks and this team will win a lot of games.
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.

as usual, another year with an MU team that will excite because of the potential; they will win some games not expected to win. And also lose some close ones they should be winning.

Shaka is no better of a coach than Wojo, and he's a worse recruiter.

Not sure I loved pulling Oso after his 4th with under 4 minutes to go. Joplin was terrible tonight and led to some offensive rebounds.

Not sure why Sean Jones was pulled. Made a nice run with him in there. He’s fun to watch.

Didn’t love Kolek to the rim down 3 with 30 seconds left.

Good fight. Hope we add some big guys and shooters going forward.

Oh. Get rid of the charge in basketball. It’s horrible and Refs don’t know how to call it.

Roster construction is becoming a big ol' red siren.

Can't be this three heavy without getting some freaking deadeye shooters.

Optimism for this season is draining with every chuck from Kam from 35 feet 5 seconds into the shot clock and with every Kolek stupid pass (yes I know he hit 4 3’s tonight).

The Shaka team - play like crap to start a game, rally to take a lead, fold down the stretch.

Kolek made a bunch of shots down the stretch but the 4 turns he had were absolutely killers and beyond sloppy.  Can't happen down the stretch of we're going to close games.

OMax is an enigma. He will make a great hustle play, steal or rebound, and immediately follow it with a turnover. His spatial awareness is beyond awful and I'm not sure you can teach that.

Therein lies the rub.
This seems not to be a team capable of hitting open looks consistently.

Defeat snatched from the jaws of victory twice in the last week. That's what separates NCAA from NIT teams.

Kam needs to stop with the 30-footers. Someone needs to give Oso a breather. Sean is super exciting to watch. End of the day, worst sports day since I don't know.
When asked how he felt about Marquette being picked to finish ninth in the Big East, Tyler Kolek only had two words:
.
"F**k 'em."

Kolek had the inverse of his usual game - he was a nonfactor as a passer and careless with the ball, but shot it well.  Maddening, yet encouraging because we know he's a great passer, and tonights shooting could jump start him for the rest of the year.

Frustrating loss for sure, but an absolute slugfest of a game.  Big night for Sean Jones and his confidence.  I like this team, and feel we will be an NCAA team.  Our guards can guard.  Kam and Jop will be better offensively.

Rebounding and lapses on hustle plays. Lack of awareness too, getting stripped from behind a number of times. Defense kept us in the game early, could have bern 20 at the half very easily. Two not very good teams.

His one to Omax with 1:30 was a killer. The other one the Oso was bad too. Nice to see him hit some shots though. Think S Jones needs to be the PG and kolek off guard.

Is Wrightsil ever going to play? Is he that bad? We needed a little more size down low and Jop wasn't cutting it at all.

I just don't think your number 10 is gonna happen too much. team lacks shooters. we have had a couple guys get hot at times, yet still lacked poise and lost down the stretch. the talent needed to be upgraded in the offseason and this did not happen. lets face it, this isn't a good basketball team

Brew, 

I think Shaka can eliminate the 35 foot threes from Kam and the sloppy turns down the stretch.  Poise and execution have to be better.

I think he was a scratch before the game.

"Hit open shots and no one complains."  They have what, 25 games left, be prepared for lots of complaints.
8 for 28 on threes for 28% shooting.  Same old, same old and it will not change under this regime, lack of shooters or not.

Kolek had good shooting night, but his three turnovers in last four minutes gave up six points. 

Told you Tolu Smith be a problem.  16 rebounds to help MSU with a 42 to 30 advantage, but the big issue was offensive rebounds 15 to 5.  Wait till UCONN and Sanogo, oh my....

Oso, Joplin and Prosper with 7 points going 1 for 8 from three. 

Sean Jones had coming out, but will he steal minutes from Kolek and Mitchell.  He actually played a lot with Kolek and it worked out except for Kolek turnovers at the end.

Kolek needs to be the PG for his passing and floor management. We can’t win with him as the leading scorer.
