Re: NCAA Basketball 2016-17 Thread

Nova obviously won the title, returned a lot of key guys, and haven't lost while also picking up some impressive wins. Yet somehow they just don't really scare me.

The final possession of the 1st half in CBB is by far the toughest 20 + seconds to watch in all of sports. Just hideous coaching. Wind the clock down to 3 seconds and heave. I would love to see the actual FG % . I literally get nauseous needing a bucket to hit a 1st half over with less than 45 seconds left.

Thing about Nova is that defensive scheme is amazing. Dunno if they still have the personnel to do all of that again this year or not though.

Georgetown is a terrible program. Syracuse just happens to be worse at this moment and forever.

Like Cal doesn't even run offense. Dribble-drive motion more like dribble-dribble stop motion when the games get tight. But yeah ISO lottery picks -> get buckets is still a thing you can do in NCAA I guess.

Re: NCAA Basketball 2016-17 Thread

Would have been nicer if this hadn't been Berry's first game back. UK played and shot unreal good especially Monk. That stupid tech by Roy potentially cost us the game, but whatever. It's a good test and should help us get ready for ACC play. At least we know we can play with a good team better than we did IU on the road. Tough road games in the ACC are going to be rough this year.

Re: NCAA Basketball 2016-17 Thread

Monk looking kind of Kobe-ish, no??

Hey, a weird play happened in the UK/UNC game. One of the UK bigs dunked, I think Bam Abedayo, but "missed" it and it bounced high up then came back down and in. Legit question is he has slammed rim, mini-hung on rim, and the whole goal was shaking backboard and all when the ball came back down and went in. By rule, that's goal tending I believe.

On a normal dunk, the ball goes straight thru the hoop before you ever slam down on the rim with your hands. So this never applies to regular dunks. But his dunk did not go thru, then he hung on rim, then it came down and went in. That's technically not any different than if you shot a 5-footer, ran up and jerked the whole goal into shaking before the ball got there, then it goes thru. Clear cut goal tending ... and so, I believe, was the ricochet dunk.

BTW, me and Dirk Minniefield goal tended in the same JUNIOR high school game so don't tell me ... LOL.

Would love to hear an official comment on whether he thinks this is right or would ever be called.

Welp, MSU is going to miss the tournament this year. Just lost to a team called Northeastern at home.
