In Seattle area Comcast, we've been bumped on Root by the PAC 12 (Oregon vs Colorado) to a 10:00 pm delayed broadcast. :(

HOWEVER,...... Seattle Area Comcast Programing shows it live at 7:00 pm on Channel 115 (US). :)

Thought some of us West Siders would like to know.

Go Zags

Looks like that is where they have to go.

And if you look at two months ago, Hart was a consistent leader/producer. Forget about his scoring and know that some IQ/leadership/coolness under pressure is desperately needed on the court right now.


My high school football coach once preached to us on the sideline after the opposing team just returned a punt to take the lead; "Don't go gazooboo on me!"

Against BYU, the Zags went "gazooboo".

Someone has to step up and get it under control.

I missed first 10 minutes . .

second unit talk:

TH: they got it down to within 8 pts. DS, MC, GB, DS, SD.
MS: DS was really a bright spot. finally got some minutes. And the (mostly) second unit really shone in that game.

TH: except for those five t.o'.'s, MC had a fine game, too.
MS: Absolutely, MC was first off the bench. struggled 1st half. but kept fighting and was great in transition a little hesitant at the three. but quick in transition and tough determination and grit was there. MC played 34 mins.

TH: re gle, played 5 mins. two quick fouls and never returned. Looks like the JC factor. but right now his early game hasn't continued.
MS: yeah he used to be good for a quick 5-8 mins. but since then he's done pretty well but has struggled, too. He comes to play and he's competitive and has a different dynamic, but still looking for his game. He needs to figure out when to shoot, when to dribble and the whole process.

TH: our bigs are supposed to be our strength (acc to few)
MS: no they were not, EH was trying but wasn't doing it very well. Davies difficult match ups for him, Hartsock, too. He let the frustration get to him instead of fighting.

Rob he really had a tough one. stat line isn't bad, but he had a long night trying to catch and finish, dunk strips and didn't provide the inside presence we needed.

TH: and KP ??
MS: 2 things, leading up to BYU, he was 3/4ths of the way thru div 1 campaign. He was logging a lot of mins. he has tired legs. BYU, too consciously forced him in to paint. forced him out of his comfort zone and he really struggled. I pulled him aside (this week) and reminded him he's really, really good at this game. I think he's sometimes too analytical. sometimes you just have to go and be a player. He'll get it back. He's a tough kid.

gamagin
02-04-2012, 05:53 PM
"Gotta come out with fire. toughness.

gotta start with fire. confidence. shoot the ball, not hoping it will go but making it go. with confidence. go for the ball. (Just because there are) 3-4 guys in front of you doesn't matter.

We're coming right at them and we're not stopping."

gamagin
02-04-2012, 05:57 PM
TH: a little review of the BYU and then tonight . .
MF: first time all year we were rattled. making ucharacteristic multiple mistakes. never settled down after a pretty good start. 10 min to half a train wreck, Didn't like that. but had a group at the end that competed and showed us what we can do. got us back into the game, made it competitive.

talked about letting it go and we can get the bad taste out tonight.

TH: tonight ?
MF: we gotta respond, tough and gritty. you gotta respond. on someone's home floor and it's not going to be easy. gotta take care of the ball. and guys gotta step up and make some shots. making them would have probably stemmed the tide vs byu.

TH: some pieces for the waves to worry about ?
MF: Yeah. The crowd. and darby is on a roll coming in to tonight. they have nothing to loose. they going to try and rattle us and we have to be a LOT tougher than we were the other night.

do you need an interpreter ?

he has lost the ball, no call, three times so far in the last two games, because he brings the ball back, behind his head, within reach of anyone, and attempts to bring it back up for the stuff. At that point it is blocked.

it's a flaw in his setup.

I understand the theory you have been floating. take the turd elsewhere. It's a sinker.

Like finishing on that steal. Getting the missed shots and putting them back -- dominating underneath -- because that is what we're going to have to get better at vs. the better teams.

Positioning and finishing. Driving (like EH does) but dishing, too. getting the third point. etc
