Game 18- Toledo Rockets

Recommended Posts

Toledo is passing the ball faster than we can rotate which is leaving wide open 3 point shooters. We may need to quit doubling Knapke in the post as we keep getting burned from 3 when we do.

I'd also like to see us push the ball after misses. We have the athleticism advantage and they can't get setup into a zone when they're forced to play in transition.

Riak shooting a three.  Sigh...

 

New rule for Deng- you're only allowed to shoot from inside the arc (the charge arc).

 

I know Riak drives you nuts shooting the 3, but my take is if you want to attract bigs to your program who can shoot from range you have to show that you are willing to let them take those open shots. I do think Riak is on a pretty short leash though.

I guess no Reece today. Was that announcement made officially?

That hurts not having him. Damn NIU floor. And didn't we used to lead the MAC in defense?

Everything starts with defense on this team. We aren't bad in half court sets but we're surely a lot better in transition, imo

I think Grocer needs to bottle whatever he says to this teams at halftime. Holy crap that was a quick turnaround

I think a big that could shoot it would realize that those who can't are on a shorter leash than those who can.

 

I cringe every time he touches the ball.  He needs to be in as he gives us some other things and plays hard, but every time he gets the ball is a gamble.

Gotta get #3 Jackson another foul. Don't like our shots recently.

 

31 pts. for M. Jackson.
