Big Ten Discussion

Bingo. A team that shoots 32% from three on the season is still going to make 10-20 threes instead of 6-of-20 sometimes. They also will make 4-of-20 sometimes probably too.


#5033

They should have lost to Nebraska honestly.


#5034

PSU wins at NW, Chris collins is not a good coach. Although he took nw to their first tourney and has really upped their recruiting it has become clear he is notva good x and o guy, especially offensively.


#5035

Iggy makes the Top 20 Wooden Award List for this point in the season. Only non-Duke freshman and one of four guys from the B1G (Happ, Winston, and Edwards). Good for him and hopefully he is bouncing back into some of the form that got him these accolades.


#5036

As someone that has been on Chris Collins is Not A Good Coach Island for a long time, I feel very vindicated these last two seasons


#5037

agree, I was in disbelief last year when some were throwing him out there as a potential Beilein successor


#5038

I feel like that is an island the size of Greenland.


#5039

Heh, for a while I thought I was taking crazy pills with my feeling of being unimpressed with Collins despite the NCAA Tournament berth in 2017. Now I’m the normal one! :smiley:


#5040

The size of Greenland, but also had the population of Greenland just last year. Not a lot of vacancies any more though.


#5041

As a fan of firing a lot of Big Ten coaches, how long can Collins ride Northwestern’s first ever NCAA tournament birth before fans start grumbling?

They have seemingly gotten worse then last years team, which was bad, and they lose Pardon, Law and Ryan Taylor after this year. This years freshman class is the best ever at Northwestern I believe but if they finish near the bottom of the Big Ten again next year he has to at least be on the hot seat if not out right fired right?


#5042

It’s too bad that 4 star point guard got denied at the last second, because they probably look quite different with a point guard on the roster.


#5043

Eh… maybe? Probably not.


#5044

Yeah, that conference-only ORtg of 86.0 with 36% on twos and 27% on threes is putrid. And that’s in Conference USA!


#5045

There’s no words for how gross that picture is,


#5046

#5047

haha, wow. MSU with 54% TO% thus far


#5048

bump that percentage up now


#5049

Duke is down 2 at the first half 2:23 mark to BC. Duke 1/12 from the line.
Edit: 1/15 from 3 now, not 1/12 from line. Down 2 at half. 3/4 from the line.


#5050

MSU shooting 57% from the floor and down 11 points. Winston has 7 turnovers.


#5051

Life is tougher when teams aren’t shooting 29% on open 3s
