Pre-Game Reading

  • Chezaroo

    Transition defense UGH!

  • Wayman Britt

    Nik will drive to bucket out of this timeout.

  • Mattski

    Beilein slow with the timeout again.

  • A2Mike

    need to get to the foul line… take advantage of being in the bonus

  • A2Mike

    that was a walk

  • Wayman Britt

    Look like he walked there

  • kam

    Im sorry but thats not a foul!

  • Madrox

    Walton keeps getting hit, no foul, PSU travels on the way to the hoop and gets bailed out, isn’t Michigan at home here?

  • A2Mike

    really disappointed by the officiating… it seems to have regressed from earlier in the year… lots of traveling not being called and lots of tick tack fouls, but then a lot of the hand checking and playing through the body on cuts is going uncalled

    • Madrox

      Does it really surprise you, its Big Ten ref’s, they always call the games to Wisconsin and OSU’s style of play

      • A2Mike

        I thought we were going to turn a corner back in November and December, but that looks all for naught

  • Burke_Does_Work

    I hate when we let teams hang around. Go for the kill shot and don’t let up.

  • kam

    nice jon.. But for a 6’10 guy he always hits the ground after being bumped

  • kam

    ZONE!

  • Cory

    That was a good defensive possession.

  • kam

    what a pass by spike

  • Madrox

    The charge is dead

  • A2Mike

    if thats not a charge they nothing is

  • jemblue

    How could that not be a charge?

  • kam

    Does he have to stand there for 10 seconds or something haha jeez

  • Wayman Britt

    Why don’t they just remove the charge from the game, refs never call it anymore.

  • A2Mike

    ball don’t lie

  • kam

    Ball doesn’t lie!

  • jemblue

    Ball don’t lie!

  • kam

    BEAUTIFUL play!

  • Wayman Britt

    another walk

  • A2Mike

    traveling is dead

  • kam

    Playing good defense

  • jemblue

    We could get a 20-10 game from our bigs.

    • kam

      not 10 since Nik leads the team in rebounds

    • Mattski

      19 and 9, but you’re right–that’s one very good center. Just wish he posed as strong an interior presence on D.

      • guestavo

        Perimeter defense much more of an issue than our interior defense.

        • mazs

          Penn State not really a good measure. All of there offense comes from the perimeter.

          • guestavo

            Yeah, I’m just looking at sports reference and all of perimeter defenders are horrible. Glenn is the best then Levert, who people seem to loathe defensively, so that should tell a lot about our perimeter defense.

  • Burke_Does_Work

    Morgan and Horford owe Stauskas some meals after all the dishes hes been cooking up for them.

  • kam

    Make these

  • Chezaroo

    Gonna be a Hornets Nest in Madison. But we are one of two undefeated a!

  • kam

    LIL DOG! 4-0 GOOD WIN!

  • A2Mike

    lol…. chambers is a little annoying… not a lot but a just enough

  • A2Mike

    wish Wisconsin would have won today

  • Wayman Britt

    Nice game, now the preseason is over – big leagues start next three games

  • kam

    (WHAT I LIKED) GLENN agressive and played a good all around game.. NIK being a great passer and setting up the bigs.. WALTON showing improvement every game. CARIS played great defense.. When he was on Dj and Frazier they struggled. hope that continues. THE BIGS are doing what they need to do and finishing. Just got to put longer stretches of defense! 4-0!

  • mazs

    Does it seem to anyone else that there is too much complaining here about the officiating game after game? There are always going to be missed/bad calls and sometimes more of them will go against us. I’m just a little skeptical that we are getting screwed every game.

    • A2Mike

      I don’t necessarily think we are getting screwed… I am just disappointed at the game to game inconsistency… the block/charge call still isn’t being called as was designed and the pendulum has probably swung too far in the other direction and traveling seems to not exist anymore, much like the NBA… overall I just don’t like the way officiating is trending

  • geoffclarke

    Just watched the end of the UK-Ark game. Kentucky obviously needs to recruit better interior defenders/rebounders.
