  1. WKU 2/15

    Arikawe and Fuller were more matched up with Coleby not Johnson. Holston and Lawson guarded Johnson a lot. Both times Temara subbed in he came in for Holston or Lawson. Arikawe was on the floor the the first time with him, and Simmons was on the floor the second time. Temara came in at 17:03 in the second half. Johnson hit a 3 at 16:08 Temara came out at 15:13 Temara subbed back in at 13:13 Johnson hit a 3 at 12:00 Temara got taken out at 11:24 Did I say that everyone else played good defense? You asked why Temara wasn't play much. I gave you the reason. It's not that hard to see on the floor.
  2. WKU 2/15

    He is a defensive liability, and that is the quickest way to see the bench under McCasland. Justin Johnson was 2-2 from the 3pt line last night. Both 3's happened while Temara was guarding him. Shane was lost in the lane while Johnson a 41.7% 3pt shooter was wide open. That and Shane can hit anything right now. No point in playing him.
  3. 2018 CUSA Newcomer of the Year race

    That isnt ppg. PER is player efficiency rating King is averaging 19.5 ppg in conference play. 21.4 for the season Coleby is averaging 13.3 in conference play. 12.0 for the season
  4. 2018 CUSA Newcomer of the Year race

    He's got a shot. King is probably going to win CUSA Player of the Year, so I dont think they would give him both awards. Id lean towards Smart winning right now, because of how valuable he is to UNT and how his scoring has help UNT turn things around. Coleby and Thompson are both legit. I think it will come down to Coleby and Smart if I had to put $ on it. The reason I picked Coleby over Thompson is bc he is nearly averaging a double double in CUSA play and he is a really good rim protector/shot blocker
  5. Middle Tennessee State (2/10/18)

    Probably because the TV scheduling is done before the season. The big TV game for CUSA is ODU vs La Tech. That would've been considered a huge matchup before the season.
  6. Free Throws

    Its just two games of data, but it helps my point so I ran with it. Ideally you'd rather have the whole season of data to support it.
  7. Free Throws

    Against USM He missed 6 free throws. 2 in the 1st half. 2 early 2nd half, and 2 with 5 mins to go. Against La Tech he made all 3 of his free throws under 5 mins to go.
  8. Free Throws

  9. Free Throws

    He doesn't lead CUSA in minutes played. He has already taken more shots in all those categories than he did last year. The four guys who are averaging more mins per game are all better free throw shooters then him. Yeah he is doing more. No doubt.
  10. Free Throws

    These guys aren't going to spend 15 hours learning a new offense or defense. This isn't football. Sure there are a few coaches out there who run a ton of sets, but even then your not working on it 15 hours a week. Your time in the summer is working on your game. Your working on where are you going to get shots in that offense. Work on dribbling. Working on passing. If you struggle at free throws and you know your going to get more than 2 a game then your working on Free Throws. Good players set their own practice routines in the offseason that attacks all areas of their game. I've watched every minute of every game. Woolridge does give great effort, but your acting like he is pushing the ball for 40 mins. Non stop fast break.
  11. Free Throws

    1.) No 2.) Maybe. No. Most used statement - "learning a new system". Its an excuse that doesn't hold up here. They aren't learning some elaborate way of playing basketball that they cant get in the gym and shoot on their own. Its possible that Lawson's wrist injury is bothering his free throw shooting. Woolridge's mins and walking the ball up are not hurting his free throw %. If you struggle shooting period, you struggle shooting free throws. Rhythm, muscle memory, confidence, form.
  12. UNT vs FAU

    I see him and think PJ Tucker
  13. UNT vs FAU

    He has been battling that hip injury for awhile and has pretty much been a game time decision the past 3 games. If you start Duffy then you move Smart to the 3 and that faces him up with some longer guys. Something he has struggled with this year. Not knocking your idea, because I like shooters surrounding Woolridge. I just think its a tough sell to put Smart at 3. Situational yes, I could see that. Starting not so much.
  14. UNT vs FAU

    I'll take plenty of down votes with this, but I don't think Simmons will be special. He may develop into a good starter, but he wont be an all conf type of player. Right now I prefer to Tope to be the starter and Zach to come off the bench. They both give you about the same production per 40 mins. Tope is a little bit more aggressive, stronger, and actually can play with his back to the basket. Im not saying that Zach isnt good or wont be good. I just feel he has a lot to work on to begin to sniff special.
  15. Lawson

    Injury. Hoping to have him back out there Sunday.
