Cupcake State
« on: November 26, 2022, 09:39:56 PM »
1.   By the end, all I really cared about was how close roqqet's computer came.    Not very.   
2.   I like how Sean seeks contact.    Anybody still saying he is ready to take the PG job from Kolek is deranged.   
3.   Joplin looks like his confidence has been shaken.   
4.   Oso fouled out against Chicago St.   
5.   MU did not attack the zone as efficiently as they have at other times this year.   
6.   I think Shaka and Kam are having a battle of wills right now.    Good vs bad shot.   
7.   Knowing that team free throw shooting percentage doesn't matter as much as how often they shoot it doesn't make it easier to watch. 
9.   A Shaka coached MU team has not yet lost to a cupcake.   
10   Bring on Baylor.

Never in doubt, but completely uninspiring.

Can we give Cardet some NIL money to transfer over immediately?

It’s one thing to shoot 30% from 3. It’s another to shoot 30% on wide open 3 pointers. You need shooting in today’s game, at any level. We don’t have them.

I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think the next couple weeks are going to be much fun.

Exactly with three pointers.  They shoot their usual 30% threes, miss free throws (12 missed tonight) and Oso in foul trouble, gonna get smoked by Baylor.  Need all facets to come together and win.  Maybe a better crowd will help, but that was pretty messy and boring.

Meh. If we keep playing like that, gonna have lots of losses before the end of 2022.

But for now I’ll chalk it up to ye olde “playing down to the competition” and hope for a lot better against Baylor, Madison, ND, Creighton, etc.

Besides, it’s hard to be too grumpy when MU wins on the basketball court and ND and Madison both lose on the football field the same day.

It was a lousy game.
Lousy TV coverage (women's Vball).
Lousy commentators.
Lousy effort.
Lousy crowd.
Lousy play.

Just have to chalk it up to a cupcake on a holiday weekend before a couple of meaningful games.

Lousy scheduling.

Started slow, took it over and got up by 22. The zone and lacksadaisical play let them get back to a closer final deficit, but it never felt like this was in much doubt. Looking forward to Tuesday. Feel better about it than I did a month ago.

Post-Thanksgiving hangover game against a soft opponent. Can't put too much stock in it either way. I hope and expect to see a much more inspired effort Tuesday. It may not be enough against Baylor, but hopefully we raise our level of play quite a bit from tonight. Put this one in the rear-view mirror.

This game was a slog, and I have to chalk some of it up to very low energy amongst the team, the coaches, the crowd. Having said that, when I looked up with 15 to go and we were up 16, I said huh, well, sometimes it will be a slog. As Shaka said post game, many many teams have lost this type of game over the last couple weeks, and we need to get better and being dialed in all the time, in all situations, against all opponents. On to Baylor!

MU shoots like crap against both good teams and awful teams.

That's not going to get better, folks.  This is who MU is and bad shooters are who Shaka recruited, so he obviously doesn't put a premium on that facet of the game.

We'll see if he's right.

What thoughts do you all have about shot distribution?   Which three players should be taking the most FGA's for the Warriors?

I mean, he's obscure about it.  But clearly likes Gard and follows MU closely and doesn't think they can shoot well (and, to this point, has a point).  But this post was one of his more obvious:
