    Do Fans Not Pay Attention To Defense?!

    I keep hearing people say how Buckley should have played more. I was just wondering if people didn't notice how poor his defense was while he was in the game? He played o lay defense

    Not calling the kid out. He is a freshmen and will get better. Just wondering if most fans only pay attention to the offensive side of the ball. Offense wasn't our problem yesterday. Giving up 86 points was

    The argument is that at least he has B12 talent. Might as well let him play and learn at this young age rather than give the minutes to Petey or Haluska.

    Re: Do Fans Not Pay Attention To Defense?!

    How do you get better? For me, I typically get better as I get additional experience. I think a lot of people have come to the conclusion that we're most likely not going to win that game anyway, so why not get someone who could develop into a pretty good player more experience. At some point, you've got to play for the future.

    But Petey is clearly better right now. Big 12 talent or not, he is better

    I understand that, but we were down 2 at half yesterday. A win yesterday and we have some serious momentum going towards the rest of the season. I actually was surprised to see him in the game so early

    Not sure he was yesterday...he really struggled against the better athletes.

    I'm just happy to see DB getting a few more minutes and heck McD even played DB and DG together which I have been begging to see. It only lasted a couple minutes, but I'd still like to see more of those two on the floor at the same time.

    I like Boozer and Garret out there..They seem to work together really well and gel well..i wonder if their pretty good friends outside of basketball?

    Offense is always the problem with this team. Look at the scores for the conference games, ISU scores between 65-68 points in most of them, that isnt going to win you games. OSU scores in the 80s quite often, they just allow teams to score more points.

    No doubt that it was Petey's worst game of the year. But let's get off the emotial roller coaster please. One game doesn't change who should be playing over another.

    We gave up over 50 points in the second half. Yesterday, defense was our problem. It is usually offense but not yesterday. I don't really know why GMAC thought we could go man to man against them

    Haluska was not playing good defense. Eaton could still get around him whenever he wanted. The only thing that Haluska did was foul him as he ran by. I'm not sure that's much better.

    Haluska does play better defense against slower guards, but against an athletic slasher like Eaton he just doesn't have the lateral speed to get in front of the guy. We're playing a zone for a reason. When the guards are driving you've got to try and slow them down and count on help underneath.

    The problem was no one could keep up with Eaton. When you play OSU you have to be able to score points, if you cannot do that you will lose.

    Eaton drives by pretty much everybody. We have nobody that can guard him, that is why we should have stayed with the zone.

    I don't know how people can be critical of Haluska for not being able to guard a quicker than **** PG. Haluska usually guards the 2 or 3 position. He shouldn't be asked to guard another teams PG, but we dont' have anyone else to guard a guy like Eaton.

    It was hard for him to guard him too, b/c the refs were calling just about anything all game long
