Agreed.  Kalkbrenner will be a problem for Ben on the boards and in the paint...if Ben hits from outside Kalkbrenner will have a hard time guarding him and will have to leave the paint open for MU's guards to attack.  I think MU goes as far as their 3 pt shooting takes them next year.

Not worried about Kalkbrenner.

Marquette beats Creighton by a few possessions in Omaha if Ben hit a few more of his open 3s. I'm focused on Benny's development and if he does we are in a good spot.

Was a 2 point game with 4 minutes left with no Kolek or Ighodaro.

With only 6 players available and 2 of them sick. (Ross and Norman) And Norman puking behind the bench and Ross playing through the flu.

Speaking about Big East centers, nice article about Oso's academic accomplishments at MU:
Oso Ighodaro’s award at Marquette really deserves more attention for the path he had to take


Quote
At Marquette, Ighodaro helped lead the Golden Eagles to three NCAA tournament wins in the past two seasons − but he also earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and a master’s degree in business in just four years.

Exactly.

Kalkbrenner is what he is. He's not going to be any different than he's been for the past 4 years.

Ben has a chance to be a real impact 5 in this league if he advances his game.

And speaking of Oso ... where would he have ranked on the list of Big East centers had the question been asked in June 2022?

Kam might be the best player in the league, he should be the leading scorer in the Big East next year!

This I agree with - hope the marketing department has a Killa Kam BEAST POY campaign ready to go by media day in NYC

My ranking of Big East centers:

1) Wells Fargo Center
2) CHI Health Center
3) Helfaer Tennis Stadium and Rec Center
4) Prudential Center
5) Cintas Center
6) Ben Gold

Ben dropped on this list because of his smaller size than the others.

Harsh, Gold is by far the most mobile of them.

Ben held up quite well against Kalkbrenner in Omaha when Oso was out. Kalkbrenner did not do much until the last several minutes when the Jays opened things up with hot 3 point shooting.

Kalkbrenner scored 19 points on 9-12 shooting for the game.  That included 10 in the first half and only 2 in the final 8 minutes during Creighton's run.

There are a lot of reasons why the game was close for the first 32 minutes.  Ben Gold limiting Kalkbrenner wasn't one of them.
