Yellow Jacket Wramblings
« on: November 23, 2022, 06:59:15 PM »
1.   I love games with contributions from all over.
2.   Oso had a heck of a game.   His teammates cost him several assists.  They make some lay ups and he is sniffing a triple double.   Maybe a couple of assists short, but you get my point.   My vote for SOTG.
3.  A couple of soft foul calls on Omax.   Alas.   He never really got in the flow due to foul trouble.
4.   Sean and Chase both had some really nice moments.    I hope this is the new normal for both.   
5.   Great defense.    There will be games where a line up of Sean, Stevie, Chase, Omax, and Oso messes people up.
6.   MU looked comfortable attacking the zone.   
7.  Stevie, Kam, Oso, Chase all had really great moves that somehow did not go in.
8.   Am I the only one who hasn't seen an identifiable in bounds play yet this year?    Lob in to Oso, then a hand off.   Today, against the zone, a lob over the top to Kam, who shot.   
9.  I am looking forward to consistency from Joplin.   I think we all are.   
10.   Great bounce back.   We don't have to shut down the program.     Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

For those that know better than me, how many defenses that we’ll see in the Big East will be the quality we saw last night?

Don't forget about Kolek's increasing confidence on offense translating. He played a great game.

Six games in and I think this team is better overall team than last year. Consistency is going to be very important, but the D is far advanced over last year.

Agree completely regarding the defense. Oso can’t get into foul trouble. Someone get Ben some HGH.

Oso had a really nice bounce back after an awful/soft performance last night. Happy to see it.

Why no mention of Kolek? If there’s an all tourney team he’s for sure our representative.

Creighton's D looks legit. They needed a number of things to go right to be the team pundits predicted, and so far it looks like those things went right.

Kolek is one of the two anchors of the team, just like Shaka said.   He looked good.

They are the two guys on the team with elite athleticism.

Sean will be a 4-year guy because of his size. Hopefully, Ross will be too. Gonna be fun watching these two guys develop.

Exactly. I LOVE Sean Jones and really like Chase Ross but there’s a logjam at their positions and the players ahead of them have more experience. That said, Shaka’s hand may be forced by Sean - I think he’s that good.

Defense travels. Our on-ball guarding is elite, which will help mitigate our lack of size. Sean and Stevie are absolute bulldogs. Kam’s defense is improved. Kolek is also a good on ball defender.

Offensively, Kam is going to find his shot. Kolek’s improved offense will help the team as well. But this teams identity and calling card is it’s on ball defense.

Sean needs to play more and Stevie needs to play less. Stevie is a great defender, but Sean is no slouch either and we need Sean’s ability to break down the defense from the perimeter off the bounce.

I am going to let Sean be a freshman.  There are going to be more rough games.  But I am going to enjoy watching his progress.

I am going to enjoy the guard depth and trust Shaka to allocate the minutes.

Sean - Kolek (to keep him fresh), Stevie, Kam (when he is jacking up 35 footers 5 seconds into the shot clock),

Ross -  Joplin until he gets his game going, Oso when in foul trouble or an off night

Failing to take size into account.  Hard to go 4 guard if one is 5'10 ish

Particularly in the Big East.   You thought the rebounding was bad before.

Yeah, there sure was a lot of wasted mental energy the last 24-48 hours.

At this point I would say Kam Jones. Doesn't mean it should be forever but his offense hasn't been good enough to justify his defense so far.

#6 was key. Great dribble drive penetration against the zone.  MU all energy all the time. 83.8 defensive efficiency is elite.
