    ISU vs MU defensive pressure

    Miles apart. All five positions are in your face ball hawks. MU is toying with Notre Dame right now. We have one player even remotely as active as anyone on MU's rotation...McGee. I'm hoping our intensity improves as we play against better competition.

    It will have to. We're not much of a high-pressure defense right now.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Yeah Mizzou looks really good even without Bowers.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I think the key is quick feet, and McGee and Sledge seem to have it. Scottie has the defensive intensity, but has to back off a foot or two to keep people from driving around him. I think the same could be said for some other players.

    Seemed like Royce White was even give space in the lane instead of putting a body on people. Not sure if he was maintaining space to go for the block or what.

    I saw some good D in the second half of the game the other day.

    Re: ISU vs MU defensive pressure

    Our defense is so reactionary. We are completely flat footed and just wait for the offensive player to start a move and try to react to it. Almost as if we are just trying to not let them by us and shoot over the top of us. But we don't do anything proactively to make them change direction or uncomfortable or take the out of their rhythm, which to me is the definition of an aggressive defense. Hopefully the defense is a process with this team and they are instilling a base and will get more aggressive as they learn the fundamentals. Of course, McGee is an exception, but his problem is that he gets out of position at times by being aggressive. But I can live with that.
