Don't know how the Bucks' three point shooting stats ended up, but they were not good for the first half. (3/14?) When the offense isn't working, the defense has to step up. Maybe this will improve as the season progresses. Really enjoyed the B1G games last year.

Playing UNC Asheville (8-4) on ESPN2. Hope they show some life tonight. Didn't watch the game vs. YSU, but the announcers said the Bucks played aggressively. Good.

Their collective performance against Virginia & UCLA was pretty good, and about as good as anyone could expect.

They won but time for the B1G to start they will have to play defense and shoot a lot better...THAD needs some of his old magic to get to these guys...BAM!

I think the lazy perimeter defense is the biggest concern. Too many guys are getting way too many wide open looks at the three point line.

How hard is it to make an effort to get a hand in someone's face every time? There are way too many instances when no one even makes an effort to get a hand in the guy's face when he's taking a shot.

On the bright side, help is on the way; Kaleb Wesson is going to bring it.

Quote:
Matched up against Florida-bound 6-8 senior Chase Johnson, Wesson led the Wildcats (7-0) with 23 points, 12 points, five assists and three blocks. Johnson managed just six points, all in the first three minutes.

The 6-11 Wesson said he has trimmed down from 325 pounds to 285, and it is apparent in his footwork and work ethic.

“We only have three kids back who played much last year and we knew some guys were going to have to step up, and Jake and Cameron certainly have,” Calo said. “As for Kaleb, we’ve seen so much more explosion from him, and he’s worked so hard in practice.”

Someone needs to tell Thad to keep Jerry Francis' kid in Columbus as well.

I'm tired of seeing kids like Nick Ward take off for places like Michigan State.

Painful loss. Have to play every possession - not hope to pull it out at the end. Sigh....

Why do u have a 6'10" kid like Potter playing at the top of the key offensively throwing picks & screens. U would think he would be better utilized under or closer to the hoop, wouldn't,t u agree?

I can only guess Motta feels Potter can help the quicker, more experienced players get open shots. Maybe as time goes on he will use him more in the low post. I'll have to pay more attention to this in upcoming games.

A few years ago I called for Archie to go to OSU. But honestly I'm not sure OSU is a better program than UD right now. I believe Archie could coach anywhere he wants should a job open. He is signed for a long time but that doesn't really matter. Thad needs some of that talent magic he has early in his tenure.

I don't think you're going to see that many blowouts. If they can hang with the likes of Virginia, UCLA, and Purdue, I don't think you really have to worry about blowouts.

The main issue is that without Bates-Diop, this team really has no depth at all now. I honestly do believe this year's starting five is better than last year's if you look at their shooting percentages & other stats, but their final record probably won't reflect that, because of the lack of a bench.

This is not a good team at all. I feel bad for Matta. Has there even been a player who gets worse every year like Loving?

Yeah I don't see how it isn't pretty much time to move on from him. I know he was the in coach about 10 years ago, but this program is going nowhere

Matta is out of touch with recruiting. He can no longer rake in truly elite talent.

Are Big10 Basketball scholarships guaranteed for 4 years? Not sure why they haven't pulled his scholarship.
