Sign of a really good team when they always have an answer.

It's early but I don't see how this UConn team doesn't get a very nice seed in March.
Yeah. Credit to UConn as they are doing everything needed to win and are talented. We just have had a lot of small things go wrong that UConn immediately takes advantage of.

They are over playing him. UConn is playing in your face D
The are.

It's early in the season so always hard to tell. But they look like a legit final 4 contender. They are big, athletic, play defense and can shoot. Or at least they have for the past 4 days.

We have had 4 scoreless periods of 2+ minutes. One 3 minute stretch where we only scored 2pts. UConn defense is as good or better than ours. EVERYTHING seems like a monumental struggle just to get a contested shot off.

Not really a bash if he really has been invisible this game.

No but the 'goes from 31 points to this!?' type of thing sounds like Grill is supposed to just go out and keep it going.

I can't think of too many good rhythmic clean looks that ISU has had.

We play so hard but our offense just stalls too much to be effective when the other team is playing like that. It is what it is. We won’t get rocked on the boards like this much I would imagine.

And an awful oop attempt to grill again…..
