Chop, have to disagree that KBD was best player on court yesterday as it was one of his worst games of the year...5-17 shooting and was not a factor much of the game. Tate kept them in the game with his second chance points. Rachman for Michigan and Wagner were pretty good for Michigan. OSU guards did not show up again...CJ, Kam and Dakich were all terrible all day. KBD is a legit all-American candidate as he has carried this team all year....he needs to keep doing that for them to win games in Big 10 tourney and NCAA tourney. Supporting cast not good enough to beat good teams without KBD playing really well. That being said, Holtmann still has to be Big 10 coach of the year for what he has done with this team.
Potter must be in the doghouse for some reason, because I don't buy into the idea that Young has shown he's "ready for prime time." Young has good hops, but he's still a half-step behind everyone else on the court, and it takes him forever to read & react to what's happening around him.
He was a huge liability on the offensive end on Sunday, and the Wolverines just basically laid off of him to help defense on everyone else. At least Potter is good for a three pointer or two per game to keep defenses honest.
Looks like the Bucks will have to play PSU in the third round, assuming they beat Northwestern. Not real confident in that game. They seem like the only team in the conference that has OSU's number this year.
Shot clock resets to 20 on offensive rebounds
3 point line moved back to FIBA standards (1 foot 8 inches)
The lane will be expanded to NBA standards
4 10 minute quarters and teams will shoot 2 free throws on the fifth foul of each quarter.
I like the offensive rebound shot clock reset and the NBA lane. College basketball isn't great at shooting the 3 so moving it further back doesn't really make sense. I hate the 2 free throws on the 5th foul and I hate the 4 10 minute quarters strictly for the NIT. I'd prefer it be that way for all of CBB, but since it isn't the NIT should leave it at 2 20 minute halves.
