Game 8: Purdue at Michigan Open Thread


#141

slowing tempo isn’t bad as long as you make somthing out of your possesions


#142

Agreed, just noting that the offense looked a lot more stagnant trying to start movement after holding the ball for a bit.


#143

Teske needs two more rebounds.


#144

71% on free throws. What?


#145

Didn’t get much bench scoring today.


#146

Charles and Iggy with quiet offensive halves. Neither trying to do what they do best. Not sure if that’s on our coaching or Purdue’s adjustments?


#147

I’d like Johns to start at least getting Davis’s limited minutes… Davis hasn’t been bringing anything to the table


#148

I would think it may have more to do with Haarms. Little too big for Iggy’s weird layup tosses to work as reliably (my guess). Charles not as sure about.


#149

Dang Teske took out half the players on the court lol


#150

Agreed… the more early run he gets, the higher chance he’ll be ready to play meaningful minutes down the road


#151

The starters are looking a little tired. I would like to see the bench play some.


#152

That’s when injuries happen.


#153

Freshmen making free throws, yes please.


#154

Great to see Poole go off. Who had Simpson leading us in shot attempts? 14.


#155

50% from 3. 13/26
Poole 5/5.

Not going to lose with that shooting


#156

Best reffed game I’ve seen in a long time.


#157

84.6% on free throws.


#158

And 11-13 on free throws. I don’t see us losing many games where we go over 70. Maybe none.


#159

I’ve been quiet on the Brandon Johns train this season, but I do think if he can develop this season he will be an important piece in extending the rotation when foul trouble strikes and moreover next season. Optimistic scenario: Matthews goes pro as expected, but nobody else leaves. You can just move Iggy up to the 3 and slot Livers/Johns in at the 4 and may not miss a beat. Not expecting that to happen, but will watch him in the future with excitement.


#160

Poole now 18/37 49% from 3 for season
