    OMG Media Statements

    I found this one on SB Nation today in an article summary of Round 2.

    "I really like Fred Hoiberg as a coach. He knew that UConn had a couple guards who apply great pressure so this week he put in a new package that had Royce White bringing the ball up as a point-forward. It worked brilliantly."

    Anybody found others?

    Depends on the metric. Iowa State is awful at forcing turnovers. If you measure defensive quality based on how well we cause turnovers or turn turnovers into points, there is a way to see us as below average.

    Neither are wrong. We can't force ourselves on anyone.

    Re: OMG Media Statements

    It's OK to say that we're not a great defensive team. We're solid, but we won't be known for our defense, because the offense is so dynamic. That's what gets attention.

    When your offense draws attention, you'll never be known as a great defensive team. In our case, solid is probably a better picture, anyway.

    Iowa State is not a great defensive team. Especially in the post. I don't know why people keep jumping all over Gottlieb for saying that.

    One of my biggest worries is defending their bigs down low. We can't afford to have RW in foul trouble and Ejim is not big enough to body up. We will need some Booker time to match up inside.

    I really hope Royce can take his man off the dribble and get him into foul trouble. (Please no charges!) UK has played most of their minutes with 6 studs and haven't had to dig deep.

    I totally agree. We play solid team defense, and usually out rebound our opponents despite being smaller. We play straight up and force you to beat us with something outside of your comfort zone. If anything Fred seems to focus alot on D and rebounding, and that is the reason we are here.

    I don't like when people act like we cant play D because we don't have steals or blocks. A lot of times good shot blockers are forcing themselves out of rebounding position, which can cause problems with a team that rebounds well.

    I think this game is another one made for Booker down low. He'll make another nice contribution.

    ISU allows opponents to shoot 43.4% on the season good for 181st in the NCAA. I don't think characterizing ISU as a below average defensive team is beyond the pale.

    Re: OMG Media Statements

    I'm not sure why everyone thinks we're weak at defending the post. It's probably untried, as the Big 12's best scorers are not post players, but we haven't let any bigs go off on us, and the ones who have were nailing 10-15' jumpers.
