    But we didn't foul! that is good, right? not fouling? It looks awesome when referees call touch fouls on other team and we hit the crazy 30 foot jumpers....not so cool when it is a Detroit Pistons game.
    ...this coach and team seem to struggle adjusting to that.
    I wonder if this coach had Kenny Pratt and Shawn Bankhead over there on the bench if he would use them to do their thing.

    The sad thing I remember that play so well, not a big dunk or anything like that, just 3 guys looking at the ball.

    And the Babb shot where he just stared and did not follow up, if he took 3 steps towards the rim to follow his shot, he would have gotten the board,

    Coach Scott Drew looks like someone who should be your dentist, but sure can college basketball. Just controlled the tempo of the game, and suffocated us on both sides of the court! You can hate the guy, but he sure is good...

    How can you say youth is a factor? We played 8 guys tonight. 3 are transfer seniors, 1 transfer junior, 2 sophomores that started last year and 2 freshmen. That is not a youthful team.

    It is a very soft team that is not well coached.

    It's been forever since I posted, but this one made me come out of retirement. We didn't score for the last 6.5 minutes....that's on the coach and I'll tell you why.
    1) We're down 4-6 points and we walk the ball up the court with zero energy and with no pace. Coach needs to light a fire up their a** and try to get some momentum (we are at home, momentum would be good). Set the tune and get a quick bucket somehow. We're losing!
    2) We don't run any plays, period. We do the dribble hand-off BS above the 3 point line and try to go off the pick and roll, that's it. Coach needs to run a play to get someone open. May I remind you yes Niang made plays at the end of the game, and guess who was getting him the ball....Hoiberg.
    I am not calling for Prohm to be fired....but it's HIS job to put players in positions to succeed and make buckets. For nearly 7 minutes at the end of the game he failed.

    Good perspective. Which is pretty much absent right now.

    This team is either Sweet Sixteen/Elite Eight or getting bounced in the first round. Too much inconsistency from game to game. Hustle and the drive to win disappears for too long of stretches. Disappointing and at home no less.

    The 17' contested jump shots with 15 seconds left on the shot clock need to end.

    YES. YES. YES.
    Could not have said it any better. I'm legit trying to think of a single time this entire year where the following sequence or similar occurs:
    Big defensive stop, turns into a huge fast break dunk. Hilton goes crazy. Ear bleeding noise levels. Other team comes down, we force a turnover. Transition three pointer. Place explodes. Timeout other team. We dominate the last couple minutes and send them on their way with an L. I don't think that or anything similar has occurred all season. The Magic is gone.

    A 19 win team is a dumpster fire?

    In everyone of our losses, we see the same pattern repeating itself, poor rebounding, tonight we were out rebounded by 14, and we did not hit at least 10 3 pointers. Tonight we were 8 of 23.

    I get Baylor is a poor matchup with us, just like TCU is, how about we try a 2 big and 3 guard lineup against teams like this. We have yet to see both our bigs out on the floor at the same time. Just kills us rebounding wise. At least we hit our free throws.

    We are now in 5th place, Baylor wins the tie breaker having swept the series with us, we now have to win out and hope, for even a chance at the conference lead.

    When we are playing well, we are an elite 8 team, when we play like tonight, we can lose in the 1st round. We have no mental toughness, and will go as far as the 3 pointers take us.

    I watched about 5 minutes in the first half and could tell the team was not going to win and shut it off. I'll suffer through this sh*t on a Saturday, but no f***ing way am I going to hang in until 10 at night on a weekday to feel like I want to puke. Its much easier to handle following the score on my phone and watching a replay if it's worth it.

    Fair point - our two bigs (Jacobson and Lard) combined for 6 total rebounds. Six.

    But maybe try Conditt. Maybe crash and bring even more guards down. I don’t know. Maybe you are right that it’s more effort...which sucks worse.

    This is one of, if not the only year we have the most talented roster 1-7. That's what makes this painful + now 3 home losses in conference.

    Prohm needs to learn to play two post players against team like Baylor and also throw in Conditt for few a mins. He has the length and athleticism to get a few rebounds.

    One of Prohm's strengths since he came here, is that his teams have played their best ball in February and March. You can't say that about this team. They are wildly inconsistent and look completely different from game to game.

    This is the worst coached team in ISU history given the talent level
