lol. Lonzo is unreal. 1 and done? That shot release is not going to work in the pro's
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.
Big game tomorrow though, Go Zags!
Zona / Zaga today!
UCLA Kentucky today
I haven't seen a UCLA game yet, I'm excited to watch this one.
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
Down goes Tucky!
Thanks Dick & Tony Bennett.
oh didn't see this thread
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.
all I can say is thank god for the 30 second shotclock and expanded restricted area.
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.
dukes gonna win the title this year so none of this conversation matters
You're gonna look like your AV in March bro.
Duke looks pretty good now, it'll be interesting to see what they look like fully healthy.
their best players havent even suited up yet fam and they are still beating ranked teams and only lost to kansas at the buzzer
Im just making a general statement that college basketball is on average unwatchable compared to the nba
You constantly bitch about the nba too, though...
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.
i dont really buy the amateur argument. theres a problem with player development and coaching prior to college. thats just a theory
