Penn State Basketball / Re: @ Iowa IGT
« on: Yesterday at 09:35 AM »
Is it really the team not coming together or do we just have too thin a squad right now? We have to remember that Reaves is out with no timetable for his return (and I'd estimate he's out for another week or two), Watkins isn't eligible to play this year but he gets to have a redshirt year, Shep isn't at 100% with his ankle and neither is Banks with his back. That's just too many players for our thin squad to handle, couple that with some of the squad deficiencies we have, the B1G schedule we've had and it's nearly insurmountable.

Lot of assumptions in your post refs. But if you are ever comparing us to elite teams, remember that we don't have their caliber of players in our squad.

We don't have any high usage bigs like that though for next season unless Moore or Watkins get more of a load than I anticipate. The PG is the initiator of the offense, that makes it far more valuable than post passing.

I'm not worried as much about low post passing. It's a part of the game, but getting a great PG will do far more for us on offense than a great passer in the post.

It feels like the entire league and all the CBB media are really pulling for Pat and constantly sticking up for him.  I don't know what that means exactly.

See my most recent post. The rest of the league loves him because he loses a lot.

lol

"That's a free throw for Uthoff."

He's 2-7, granted he's very good, one of the best in the nation, but that's a ridiculous statement.

Good play by Davis there to set his feet and take his time on that 3 point shot.

Nothing like a fadeaway baseline jumper at the start of the shot clock...*sigh*

With Davis wide open in the corner and a passing lane clearly available.

Banks playing 1 on 5 isn't good offense.

This is probably going to be a long game given the first 10 minutes here.

Well, all the footage came from one game it looks like, perhaps he just didn't get a block in that game.

OT / Re: OT: PSU Football
« on: February 3, 2016, 06:22 PM »
Just out of curiosity, how does PSU get pictures of these new signees in a Penn State uniform so fast? Are they allowed to photograph them during their official visit? Are they allowed to send the recruit a uniform to wear to bed as pajamas the night before? Do they have a Photoshop wiz among the intern pool?

Pretty sure the photos are taken during visits to the campus, but could be wrong.

The Big East gets a lot of flack for not being as good as it used to be, but I watch a lot of Big East basketball being right outside of Philly and it's still a really high standard of basketball.

The Sixers' current motto should be, "Ish Smith...who knew?"

I just don't understand why someone would use assists per game when assist percentage is a better stat. Granted, that's 342nd, but it seems weird to use assists per game.

I had to laugh when Jon Crispin called Shep Garner an elite level shooter - again. 


Shep Garner's three point shooting percentage this season is .361.

I don't think anyone would ever argue that Joe Crispin wasn't an elite level shooter, yet Joe's three point shooting percentages were:

Freshman:  .324
Sophomore:  .356
Junior:  .346
Senior:  .356
Career:  .348

So he never topped Garner's current number.

We remember Joe's big shots but tend to forget a lot of his misses.

FTR - Battle didn't top .361 until his senior year when he shot .369.

I find this to be an odd position to take given Shep's shooting percentages. 239 current college players are averaging at least 5 3PT attempts per game (my arbitrary cut off for attempts per game) are shooting at least 36% from 3, Shep is 234th on that list. I find it hard to argue he is an elite shooter right now.

People often mistake elite shooting with big shot making, both Joe and Talor made big shots, which leads people to forget/forgive their misses.

Shep hasn't had his defining moment or season for us yet, it is totally fair to say he is not an elite shooter yet, at least in his current role. His biggest problem is shooting as a primary ball handler, getting Tony Carr next season will probably help Shep's percentages a lot as the ball is not in his hands as much. He has made nearly 2/3rds of his 3s off assists, better players around him should give him more catch and shoot opportunities, which should see an uptick in his 3PT percentages. That is the hope anyway!

Not giving the ball to Taylor or Shep with 2 minutes left down 9.

Banks really has to learn his limitations, no reason for him to take that 3 there.

He at least made up for it by not getting back to stop the fast break...

It wouldn't have ultimately mattered given that pass and cut.
