    yeah one and done. hoping tj leaf sticks around

    lonzos great but our defense still sucks. we had another 5 star pass first PG that could shoot the three, kyle anderson, that led the team to the sweet 16 with an explosive offense/bad defense, so i kinda feel like i've seen this story before. 2014 team probably had better defense, but we'll see what ike anigbogu's return from injury changes things up

    It's been what, 7 games? Mike Bibby.

    He may turn out to be, but the season is 5 months long.

    id be able to watch college ball more often if all games had scores this high.

    the average 62-56 shit or whatever it is? just too tough to get through

    Might not be as exciting in the terms of scoring moments, but there's an appreciation for their talents, coaching, strategy I have either way.

    Not saying all low scoring games are good, shitty games are shitty games but a blanket statement based on score seems unfair.

    My problem with most college basketball fans is that they try and rationalize those scores by saying "college players play better defense than nba players"

    no. no they dont. its not even close.

    its like thinking that your defense in football is good because you held florida to 6 points, nah bruh, thats bad offense playing a bigger role than your defense is

    and thats what most of college basketball is riddled with, absolutely awful basketball players who just flat out cant score. see too much dribbling only for someone to jack up a contested shot with 2 seconds on the shot clock left. "omg look at that elite defense from a player who will never play 1 second of basketball after he graduates college" as college fans completely ignore, again, that college ball is just riddled with talentless garbage

    They're amateurs for a reason? What exactly are you arguing for/against here?

    Yeah, most players coming up through AAU and being the go-to on their HS team leads to them trying to outscore the other team.

    A good amount of low scoring games are just 2 shitty teams with no real offense or defense to speak of, but there are good ones as well.

    100-90 games usually mean no defense which (in terms of skill/strategy) isn't that much different from a 42-38 defensive battle. Two well playing, evenly matched teams.

    Im just making a general statement that college basketball is on average unwatchable compared to the nba

    surprised by the defense

    we couldn't stop dribble penetration against nebraska without using the zone but we didn't have to use it once against kentucky

    not recently, no. i dont really have a problem with the nbas product. the playoffs are more exciting than the ncaa tournament. regular season is more exciting than college basketball

    and college football is full of amateurs and seems to do fine putting out a better product that people enjoy watching. :dunno:

    i dont really buy the amateur argument. theres a problem with player development and coaching prior to college. thats just a theory
