Still contributing but just doesn't seem like himself in a number of ways. 

I know he's been banged up but any limitation physically the past 2 days hasn't been obvious.

We need him - any ideas what's going on here?

I find it hard to believe he would have sat the last 7-8 minutes of that BET final if he weren't significantly hurting. Hoping he has a bad leg bruise that will greatly benefit from four days of rest.

If it's not physical, one of their 19 assistant coaches needs to get inside his head. He played timid and that's not him. He stood around and watched too much.

Oso looked much better in second except for that one turnover.  Bad thing is he only had 1 rebound, but Joplin, Ross and Kolek helped fill the void there.  13 Offensive for Colorado and 3 for MU kept Colorado in game. 

Rest and then hopefully he takes care of the NCST big guy.

1 board from Oso is telling me he is lacking his explosiveness and is hurt.  Hoping the rest gets him back on track. Need him.

nobody knows if he is hurting. This time of year, lots of guys have nagging hurts.

He's fine.  Rebounding will never be his strength.  He's playing tight and can hopefully learn from the first two rounds and relax

Very obviously isn’t close to 100%. Hope the 4 days off help, but the 4 off after the BET certainly didn’t. Going to need much more from him next weekend.
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

Agree.  I don't think he's hurt per se.  I do think he is physically worn down though from being an undersized big by Big East standards.  Cumulative effect.  But that doesn't explain fumbling a number of passes, some poor turnovers, and only getting 1 rebound in 36 minutes.  Not even a backtap variety rebound.

Shaka mentioned recently that he'd asked Tom Izzo for some advice after their loss last year, and he told Shaka that it is REALLY important to spend A LOT of time individually 1 on 1 with the players between Round 1 and 2.

I suspect Shaka will spend a bit of extra 1 on 1 time with Oso between now and Friday's game.

Generally agree with many of your takes, but he was pretty subpar as compared to his usual performance.  Lots of fumbled passes that resulted in live ball turnovers, a couple of bad passes, and an inability to corral rebounds - again as compared to his benchmark performance.

It's actually encouraging in that if he rounds back into form and Chase and Jop stepping up - we are looking good.

Come on, man.

Love Oso and he still contributed but there’s zero insanity in saying he did not look much like himself this weekend.

Oso was not "completely fine" today. I doubt if anyone will dispute the second part of the sentence though.

Lots of pressure to perform well on every possession in a game like this one.

Players react differently . Oso was dealing with some hyper lengthy players inside .

Good news is Oso shot 5/6 from field and we needed every one of those shots

Hes gotta be hurting - he was walking everywhere- not closing out - getting stuck under the backboard in rebounds.

Either that or someone slipped him some mickeys and he was high out if his mind. Other than the dunk and maybe that lad6 push shot, he just wasn't there

Is Davante still hooping?  Maybe he can play D.J. Burns in practice this week?

Lampkin was a decent warm up.   Lampkin is listed at 265, by the way.    Ha.

Lampkin:  285

Burns:  325-340. 

But you're correct, it was a good warm-up. 

Remember that Davante game vs Syracuse at the BC Tower?  When he hit that 16 footer after that pass fake?

Just have to make him defend the pick-n-roll - make him a bigger defensive liability than his offensive upside.

I do.   The only 15 footers I have seen Burns hit is free throws.   Play to his right shoulder.   Do your work early.   Please, for the love of all that is good and holy, get a body on him when a shot goes up.

NCState may actually be an opportunity for Benny, as they play two big guys together a lot of the time.
