    Re: MAILBAG: Updating expectations

    I think the game on Saturday will dictate a lot.... On a lighter note, we have a week between the next 2 games. I think we go 3-2 in the next 5, which puts us at 5-4 in conference.

    Niang isn't the only one who could have fouled out on moving screens. Even Mrs. Velo who was only half watching the game commented that the players in grey seemed to think the way to set a screen was to contact the player and then move in what ever direction the defender was trying to go.

    Apparently it was a slow question day...

    I noticed this during the Iowa game when Georges was called for an illegal screen, and have been watching other teams on screens. I've seen several teams do this. The screener waits until the player makes contact, and then turns into the player and heads toward the hoop or back for a 3. It maintains longer contact with the player being screened, but sure looks like a moving screen to me every time.

    Eric Church? Really? He's like the male version of Taylor Swift. Instead of heartbreak, boys, and love...its boozing, fighting, and smoking. Man stuff.
