Josh Oglesby out 6 weeks for the Hawks due to a broken bone in foot. Jok to take his place.
Oh noes!!! Who will be their 27% sharpshooter now?
How will the Hawks ever recover?? Who will take his place shooting 20% from behind the ark and no defense??
Haha, was just going to say, this is probably good news for Iowa.
I'm interested to see how Peter does tonight. He was 1 of 7 from the floor for their exhibition, and reportedly played BAD defense. I'm sure he'll hit shots sooner rather than later, but Oglesby and Jok are their "shooters"... If Oglesby is out, and Jok is a defensive liability, can they stretch the floor? Marble, Gessell, and McCabe are decent shooters, and Uthoff should be as well (he was also less than impressive - statisticslly - during the exhibition).
Hawks will still be a tough out. If they can't shoot - I imagine they make it a foul shot game.
Oglesby was one of their better perimeter defenders. That shows you what a liability the rest of their guards are on that end of the floor.
Having the same talent back and older doesn't mean that your team is any better. I really think they'll struggle to finish better than 7th in the Big Ten and will be a bubble team at best.
Plug in their next "project" or "under the radar player"
Jok is sooooo slowwwwww now. Watched him in High School and at the Heartland shootout in Des Moines. People were just flying past him. Custer made it look so easy. Yes Jok can shoot but he's a liability defensively and will have a hard time getting open.
That evens things a bit for when they play us with Melvin also out, though theirs won't be as big of a loss.
Noah will take his place.
Mel will play in that game.
There goes the NIT bid.
I'm calling it when we beat them the excuses will be its because Oglesby was out.
Let's just beat them first. I have too many bad memories of redheads alley opping all over us last year.
Iowa will be tough. Oglesby playing or not playing has zero impact on my opinion of the game.
Damn it. That's one less guy that can't make a three pointer. Worse for us than them. A guy gets hurt and Iowa's 3 point shooting % likely goes up. Strange but true.
Now they have a chance.
Yeah with this loss I only see them as a Final 4 team now. What a shame.
defending national champ runner up...next man in, they should be loaded with talent.
Iowa will be a competitive team this year despite Olglesy's injury. They should roll on UNC Willmington tonight. We get a preview tonight of our opponent on Sunday! Fred should just have the players watch the game tonight in a meeting, and critique and formulate a game plan..
