    ...that tOSU and Illinois can end a game with a final score of 48-39? NW finishes with 48 yesterday?

    The Clones didn't score for the first 4 minutes of this game and haven't looked particularly good for stretches and they're going to break 80.

    Do they have a shot clock in the B1G?

    Big 10 plays horribly slow and boring basketball.

    Good question. No one has ever given a real answer on why B1G is so slow.

    Looks to be the Nebraska effect, if you catch my drift.

    Not only ISU, Texas went ICE COLD at the end of each half tonight and still ended up with 76.

    "They play defense in the Bee One Gee." Give me a ******* break. Texas and ISU both played good defense tonight.

    Does anyone have a real answer other than they just suck?

    Different style of play. If TCU and maybe T Tech had any say, most of their games would be in the 50's.

    I've watched quite a few games this year, and it's not all defense. Many of those teams just plain can't shoot

    I'm sure limited possessions plays a role into it as well.

    To be fair, 6 on 6 games put up huge numbers, don't lump it in with whatever the b1G is doing.

    To an extent. I just think most of their teams recruit with defense in mind, and the combination of decent defense with bad shooters make for some really horrendous basketball. Iowa, Michigan, sometimes Michigan St and maybe Minnesota (sometimes) are the only ones worth watching

    Iowa might not score much but they sure do have depth by golly gee! Teams with depth are fun to watch! :swoon:

    Actually I think it was called because the celling was falling.
