I didn't see much of the Iowa-UNI game tonight, but the part I did see had UNI missing a lot of shots that went in against ISU. I don't think comparing the final scores of the two games paints an accurate picture of where Iowa and ISU are relative to each other. Iowa's post play was much better than ours however and that worries me.
Just watching the games this year you can tell that Fredie knows what he's doing. Our offense spreads the ball around and attacks the basket where as last year everyone just kind of stood around and waited for something to happen. Defense looks ten times better, and hustle plays are way more common. My only issue is that a certain center that has a tendency to shoot the deep ball likes to pout when he misses instead of crashing the boards. Other than that I'm really pleased so far.
Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft.
Well, we made this into a big game with Iowa winning and our two losses last week. Basically the Virginia game will be difficult, so we need to win to only have three losses going into conference. We need every win non conf if we have any NIT tournament aspirations. That was the downfall of McD - the pre season was always inadequate.
Frankly, we need to shoot well. We need to take more time on the free throw line before we shoot. We need to avoid dumb unneeded shots (two of our players need to become more particular).
Other than that, we are doing about all we can expect.
Looking forward to CFH magic for the next bball season, Georges style.
