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.

Never in doubt. Hard to keep focus up 20. It was a qin.
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

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.

Wades you have been so optimistic this year I was surprised when I read this, especially your last sentence.

Johnny….he is not. Hes not hiding it. Hes a Badger fan. Its not hard to figure out.

It’s the politics that he doesn’t like. Started in 2020 under Wojo and continued with Shaka.

In addition to having a Bo/Gard chubby, NlW is like Procol Harum: He prefers his athletes, coaches and programs to be a whiter shade of pale. It was bad enough that Marquette embraced the concept that Black lives matter; when we actually hired "one of them" as coach, that was the last straw for him.

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.

#2Houston was a 19-point favorite over Kent St and won by 5 at home.

MU has not lost a cupcake game under coach Smart.    Last night wasn't a great game.   But it wasn't an L.

Coming back from Ft Myers with two huge games coming up this week, this was an obvious let down game. No need to read more into it than that.

Shaka talking about Oso and his Marquette triple double. 

Just me, but lame.  They mentioned it on the broadcast last night, so clearly it's been a Shaka talking point for a few days.  And if the players enjoy it - great.  But...it's not a triple double.

Yeah it's not an actual triple double, but I completely get why Shaka is emphasizing it and praising Oso for it.

It is Coach Smart trying to insulate his team from criticism.      You can see it in all the negativity here.    And the players know what the critics are saying.     
Oso sucks.    Oso went for a double double and had 10 deflections.    Let's pump Oso up.
Omax is bad basketball player.     Omax went for a double double.     Omax still sucks.     Shaka acknowledged and rewarded his effort and game.
TK sucks.    He is shooting 40% from 3 and is among the national leaders in assists.   

So, Rocky, sure, to you, and to a lot of other message board denizens, it is a lame stat.     To Coach Smart, and what he is trying to draw out of these guys and build, it is something to be celebrated.   

MU wanted a change from Buzz and chose Wojo.     They wanted a change from Wojo and chose Shaka.    This is what we have for the foreseeable future.    Both from a roster standpoint and a culture standpoint.

Uh.  Ok.  Oso responded by fouling out.  Though particularly the last foul was laughable.

A Shaka triple double. Alas still not a real triple double. Nothing wrong with saying that.

Every single person on here knows it’s not a real triple double. So what’s the point?

We’ve heard since Shaka got here that he wants his teams to get at least 32 deflections a game. Setting a defensive mindset.

The fact that one player was able to achieve double digit deflections, almost a third of the team target, Shaka should emphasize it. Those 10 deflections can have just as much, maybe even more, impact on the game than 10 points on the offensive end.

Do we really have to be so pedantic about this? Who cares that it isn’t “real.” It just highlighting what Shaka wants.

I know we are by and large joking about the MOPE stuff, but not everything requires a negative comment. It’s just basketball.

Good point. I had not considered that.
