    JVB, Boozer, Lucca and passing were all there. I was so impressed at the ball movement in the first 10-12 games.

    Agreed, ball movement has really gone down hill. I think Coach Mac needs to show this game to them and remind them how unselfish they were, albiet it's a bit easier to pass once a zone breaks down.

    Who did we play in the first 10-12 games again? Don't get me wrong Lucca and JVB would help a ton right now but I think it is more to do with playing horrible teams like Drake than us actually playing great

    JVB's injuries changed the entire plan for the season.


    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.”

    Re: Just watched the Drake/ISU Highlights...

    Why does everyone think that JVB's injury is such a HUGE blow to this team? I just do not get it! The guy was averaging 13 mins and 4.1 ppg. How is that the missing piece to this team? "He would stretch the floor for CB" He played in 10 games and took 16 threes! that is less than 2 a game! Why all the talk about how many more wins we would have with JVB and Boozer on the floor? I just simply do not get it!

    You just answered your own question. He would stretch the floor and create a lot more one on ones for Brackins because people had to respect his 3 point shooting which is very good.

    He was not even taking any threes, that is my point. 18 in 10 games - Is that what you call streching the D???????

    I think JVB's loss has hurt, but I don't think it has changed the course of the season necessarily. He doesn't have to take the 3's to make an impact. Just having him at the three point line the post defender guarding him has to pay attention to him. Thus making the double teams either more difficult to get that post over to Brackins or having the double come from a guard instead.

    You are right, and wrong.

    JVB would be able to stretch the floor because he has shown that he can hit a 3. Our 3 point shooting stinks right now because we have Gil and Brack taking the majority of them. SC has been hindered health-wise, plus people take the 3 ball away from him for the most part. He does move enough that he isn't a liability like Lucca was in this offense.

    However in this offense, the problem with JVB is that he is a one dimensional player.

    It also is an excuse for the coach.

    HB announced hours before the season opener.
