    Re: Part of Lon's Strategy for a Win at Hilton

    Jameel McKay played 37 minutes, grabbed 14 rebounds and blocked 4 shots while affecting many more. He had 17 deflections I think Otz said this morning. Advantage Prohm.

    That was the McKay that we...

    Re: Bench production, "the weave", and fouls.

    I mentioned it after the Michigan State loss, but I think I was the only one. Denzel Valentine was running through their defense, and KU's response was to run the weave for 20 seconds and then have...

    Re: Part of Lon's Strategy for a Win at Hilton

    That might have been true a couple seasons ago. I wouldn't hesitate to zone this ISU team. We have shown that we will throw up bad shots, and outside of Thomas and Niang, we don't have anyone...

    Re: Part of Lon's Strategy for a Win at Hilton

    And I think that's all we're looking for. I don't think anyone expects it to be our primary defense.

    Re: Part of Lon's Strategy for a Win at Hilton

    We will mix up our defenses the rest of the season. One thing a zone does is keep McKay right at the basket, where he is most effective. Rebounding is an issue, and obviously, OU's outside shooting...

    Re: Part of Lon's Strategy for a Win at Hilton

    More shots for Lattin means fewer shots for Hield/Cousins/Woodard. I'm OK with that. You can definitely get McKay in the air with a pump fake.

    These types of strategies usually sound good in...
  7. Re: *** #1 Oklahoma vs #17 IOWA STATE Game(day) Thread ***

    I love Fran, but he's getting a little over the top. The "presidential run" gag was annoying, but maybe I spend too much time on Twitter.
  8. Re: *** #1 Oklahoma vs #17 IOWA STATE Game(day) Thread ***

    I see Bilas will be the analyst. I love Bilas, but it seems like all he ever says anymore is, "___________ is a really good player."

    Re: Soundoff

    I've worked closely with most of the local sports media ( a real humble brag, I know). Most of them truly don't care either way. They appreciate the state's love for sports and know all fanbases have...

    Re: Nader/To Shoot or Not to Shoot

    Meh. I think you're overestimating the defensive focus on Nader. There's a reason he's usually wide open on his attempts, and I don't think it's his supernatural ability to find holes in the D.

    Re: This year versus last....what is going on?

    Nothing personal, but this might be my biggest message board pet peeve. It almost always means, "This won't get corrected."

    THIS IS NOT A SLUMP! He's never been a good shooter. He's never going to be a good shooter. How are people missing this?

    Re: Nader/To Shoot or Not to Shoot

    In Nader's case, yes it is a negative. He has proven to be a BAD 3-point shooter. Not average. Not respectable. He's a bad shooter. I don't care what our offensive philosophy is. He should not have a...

    Re: Nader/To Shoot or Not to Shoot

    It's past the point of him being a threat. He isn't a threat. Teams are leaving him wide open. He is a post player with decent handle. That's it.

    It's also one of the most underrated defensive strategies. Simply having a hand up allows you to give more space while discouraging a shot. Shooters, especially guys that aren't very comfortable...

    Re: PODCAST: A serious basketball conversation

    Agreed, but it's going to be very difficult to break the habits they've developed over the last three years. Morris forced some drives early in the shot clock that led to turnovers. Nader still...

    Yuck. This sounds exactly what most of us thought during the Morgan-McDermott transition. The bright side, or potential bright side I guess, is this could let these guys relax. The conference title...

    Nader makes some horrible mistakes on the offensive end, and for the love of god please stop shooting 3's, but our defense got a lot better when he was put on Felix. For whatever reason, Thomas...

    Re: ISU @ Texas Predictions

    Is Texas playing any zone? They did last season, but I wasn't sure if Smart is strictly a man-to-man guy. If it's man to man, it seems like Niang and McKay could have their way inside. Ibeh, Lammert...
