Tremendous Win!!
« on: November 21, 2023, 12:48:40 AM »
As I said vs Illinois:  Good Teams find ways to win.  Enormous triple from Jones the Younger and imo the P of the G.   Let's never forget to give diminutive players extra props!!!    :)

Sean Jones and Chase changed the game in the second half. Sean is going to get a lot of time this season.

This will serve the team well in March where you just need to win even if you don’t have your A game.

Mitchell was benched at some point for good. Will be interesting to see his minutes vs Jones going forward

100% They were the keys to that 17-0 run in about 3 mins.  :)

I think that’s more of a Chase question.

We beat a good team that was extremely well coached. Our team has learned what it takes to hang in there and win down the stretch.
Winning is overrated. The only time it is really important is in surgery and war.

More Sean and much, much, much less Mitchell. Brick Mitchell is to shooting what Walton is to announcing.

There’s definitely a place for Stevie on this team. He’s Derrick Wilson but with more offensive support around him.

But I think going forward Chase should probably be the 5th starter

I don't think I want to play UCLA come march.

JTY changed the game with his defense.  The kid played with a lot of toughness.

I think that’s the most gritty MU win I’ve ever seen. Nothing went right. Refs screwed us several times over. Went cold down the stretch. Kam fouled out. tKO hurt. Couldn’t make a FT to save our lives. Win. Anyway.

Sean, Chase and Stevie will all have their times and places.   And yes, there will be more Sean and Chase as they get better and more confident.

Great team win.
Toughness down the stretch.
UCLA is a talented handful.
Go Marquette!
Give it your all against Kansas!

Herman and warrior69

Agree with both of you. To be honest, I don’t want to see Illinois or UCLA again. They have beat two very good opponents thus far.

This. Refs lost a lot of $ on that one.

Kolek's health is probably an underrated talking point today. Those bruising pics are crazy, there's no question he's still gutting it out on the court (and probably will be for 2-3 more weeks).

Most importantly, avoid Chaminade.

Guaranteed two games against top-10 teams.

It was a tough match for him today. Stevie is a better player than shown tonight and will do well for us. Needs to be a goldfish.
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

Stevie will continue to start, as he should, and will get better. It’ll all come down to minutes and lineups anyway.

I wouldn't give up on Stevie.  From my observations he gains confidence when he gets a chippie or two during the course of the game.  There's no doubt he had a very rough night but I think he's more than capable of bouncing back.

Yup the only thing happier than all of us is our RPI.
