    Marquette Post game

    The main difference is that Vic had 3 years of work to improve his 3pt shooting to 40% his junior year. By the time Romeo hits that same age, he'll have been in the league for a year or two. Romeo and his shot will only get better as the season goes on, and he will end up shooting a more respectable percentage from deep.

    Marquette Post game

    Great win and an overall impressive showing. The defensive rotations need a little work, but for a team that’s considered high powered, we played pretty good D. It’s going to be fun watching this team grow over the course of the year. RP is poised beyond his years, and runs the offense well. He’s going to be huge over the next 4 years.

    In regards to the number of fans showing, do you think it would be better if they got rid of the student section in the upper balcony and made those tickets available to the public? I remember seeing that section more empty than the rest of the upper section.

    Montana State Postgame Thread

    I saw Justin Smith say that they’ve focused on defense A LOT this offseason, in one of the player postgame press conferences that I saw. He also said that they changed a few things on offense and that guys were still getting comfortable with some of the changes. I think the offense will come, it may just take a few games and more practice

    NBA Thread

    I guess I just don’t understand what you think the NBA does differently than the NFL. IMO, the NFL and NBA are pretty equal. MLB is a different animal IMO. The thing about it is that most of the NLF and NBA players get marketed in college, whereas college baseball doesn’t get near the following. By the time these guys get to their respective leagues, they’re already household names for the most part. The MLB players are already at a marketing disadvantage in that regard. Also, like others have said, winning has a lot to do with marketing. Trout is the best player in this generation, but he’s been on terrible teams. Unlike the NBA and key positions in the NFL, MLB players have a smaller effect on team success.

    How do you say so? No matter the sport, if we’re talking the elite athletes, they don’t have a hard time marketing them even in smaller markets.

    It would be really telling if we start recruiting other players. IMO, that would show the true feel for the recruitment more than anything else. Not doubting he is ours to lose, but it’s something to keep an eye on.

    And Troy couldn’t have taken the team to an NCAA birth by himself either. Hulls was a better college player than Troy and it really isn’t that close. Is Troy the better athlete? Yes, but that doesn’t mean he’s the better college basketball player. You say “give me the kid 50 spots higher” acting like Troy was a top 10 high school player. He wasn’t and there are all kinds of examples of lower ranked kids outplaying higher ranked ones when you’re still talking the top 150 players.

    Southern Indiana Post game thread

    I guarantee someone thought the time change went into effect or something. The football program was scheduled to come on at 12, yet came on at 11.

    At the end of the day, whether the info is right or wrong, it will be alright. As much as we love IU BB, there are things more important in life than to get worked up over information that might turn out to be incorrect. I think most people realize that it is subject to change, and nothing is ever concrete. P.S. Thank you to all of the ones who bring info to the board.

    CBS: 2019 Title Contenders

    What I like about that list is they have Loyola as underrated, and we just handled them in the scrimmage. I know it's a scrimmage, but that team plays good team (disciplined) basketball. I take good stock in the details that have leaked from that scrimmage performance.

    D'Andre Davis Commits to Nebraska

    Or he could just decommit and go somewhere else.
