I think the Boss-Man is at the Ladies' Game, so I'll be presumptuous and get this party started.

Absolutely zero reason for this game to be difficult for GU. Only GU can beat GU. Play tough and play smart. Zero reason to back off. I am usually the first guy to say that we need to sub in or let the 'JV' play in the waning moments if we have a big lead. I think we play 8 guys at the most and just take it too them.

Probably does not matter, but I swear the Pepperdine guy was inside to 3 point line when he hit the shot that took them from 7 to 10. Oh well, they gave Kelly that charge that wasn't, so I won't complain.

U Zig, I Zag
02-20-2010, 05:22 PM
You don't like the running? GU is shooting near 100% with the only miss from Meech.

Referring to the 'have to' idea of getting it inside to whom ever. If it is not there then don't. Two throwaways just trying to get it to Will.

Good point. They need to get him the ball off a screen or while he is on the move.

MEZAG
02-20-2010, 05:28 PM
meech is playing better, especially the last few weeks.

This may be why coach Few kept him in the starting rotation. Coach knew he needed to get Meech out of his funk. Is it starting to sink in for any of you Meech haters?

to dish it to "someone" who's open for the jam. Gotta keep these foes honest. too easy to pile on the obvious shooter, imo.

I just flipped over to the UW game and they are up by 21 over UCLA in the first half. If only they could figure out a way to play all of the league games at home then they would be the top team in the nation.

I was a little surprised to see the UW UCLA game as the college game day game today, but I imagine those are decided before the season.

I'm a Manny Fan, but, is it just me, or does he not create anything offensively? Love his hustle and reb, but seems to just pass around the perimeter offensively. Also, the shots he takes, outside a catch and shoot 3, all look awkward

I think that's his role for now.

alldaye
02-20-2010, 05:56 PM
yeah, that's what I'm thinking. When he played in the junior olympics he was one of the top scorers, so I'm excited to see if he can bring that in the next couple years

U Zig, I Zag
02-20-2010, 05:57 PM
Not just you - Manny's role may not be that of a scorer but when only 5 guys are on the court at a time you have to be able to score. He seems a little awkward at times. I wish he would take more conventional shots.

gamagin
02-20-2010, 06:01 PM

Manny is sensational getting rebounds from bigger, stronger guys. He is so quick to recognize position.

It looks to me K.O. has really bulked -up. Next year's front line could be crazy big.

is kind of a rover. like a free safety in fb -- out there to chase the ball.

He's all over the place & very effective on defense. the downside to that is offensively, often, he is out of position.

Better teams have exploited the mismatch this has created going the other way.

Finally, Big Rob went to the rim with some gusto. Nice.

gamagin
02-20-2010, 06:12 PM
could ditch the extra motion (moving the ball downward before going back up) and just stay up and put the ball in, he'd get 20 pts per game, imo

Just stay up there big guy and finish the last 2-3 inches before the rest of them can adjust.

shot that drew a foul.

Notice how low he is off the ground when he's releasing, instead of at the top of his incredible hop. without that upper body follow through he wouldn't have gotten it in. But too often lately, it seems he's getting blocks.

He needs to get back to getting up above those smaller players, or the ones he clearly can outjump.

He, like RS, is giving his opponents a second chance at stopping him or his shot.

True but regardless, you have to beat the zone before the clock runs out. It seems that we were getting it down to 10 seconds then starting something.

save by EH going outta bounds and then a great pass by MB (I think) and Bobby muffs it. Again, he's gotta stuff stuff stuff that pill. Not shoot that little JH trademark dink.

Go for the highest percentage shot his great big huge body affords him.

But I am thinking that maybe he just can't do it. He is not going to be Micah coming down the lane. I think Rob dunks if he is sure... but a missed dunk is no worse than a simple hook that might be 50/50 anyway.

Good win. Played much better. It is hard to get up for an oppenent everytime and I think once we got up here that feeling came back. Wish we would have gotten more boards and that Rob would have went up stronger a few times but overall a great game for him.
