Penn State Basketball / Re: Online Radio Feed

so I ended up listening to the game the old fashioned way - a literal radio. 

I did also....while I watched the game on BTN.
Steve Jones did the broadcast solo.

Reduce the 3 point shots in general, especially early in the shot clock, make the extra pass, get everyone involved and keep hustling and a home win awaits.


I agree.

Believe it or not, kids don't always do what a coach says. 
Of course not.
BUT the coach controls what 5 play on the court and who sits the bench!!

I can rattle off four players that I thought took extremely longggg 3p attempts that appeared "out of rhythm" last game. Establishing a shooting rhythm is extremely important in outside shooting. Coaches coach players on learning their shooting rhythm. Mostly it involves footwork.
"Get good shots" is standard coach speak.
Also, if longer outside shots were easier then why do 99.9 of players shoot fouls from the foul line instead of two feet behind the line??

worst shooting night I've ever seen......

I agree in the sense that shot selection (mostly the timing and the length of the 3 pt attempts) needs to improve.

Pretty nervous for this game. Not sure we have what it takes to pull it out.

Nervous is a great word.

I'm very nervous about this game.

I am nervous also. BUT I am nervous worrying if the quality of play from last game will continue this game.

My 2 cents:
Thanks to ESPN I could only eyeball about 24 minutes of PT. I listened to the entire game.
I saw 2 clearly different teams. One team (team A) played defense very hard. Nice full court press at times. Strong half court defense all game forced their opponent (team b)  to set up their offense 20-30 feet from the basket. On offense team A were solid with the ball and set up their offense 15-20 feet from the basket and made a strong effort to get quality close shots.
Team B played softer half court defense allowing their opponent to set up bout 15-20 feet from the basket. On offense team B set up 20-30 feet from the basket. They generally employed 2 options. Either a 30 foot dribble drive ....OR...a LONGGGGGGG 3 pt shot!
Team A outrebounded Team B.

One team I really enjoyed watching. The other.....well...No Comment! 

P.S. The PSU hoop team appears to be at a crossroads.    :(

Oh well...........we got wisconsined! They don't foul and they limit TOs.
Plus they do a lot of other things really well. I think we played hard. In practice we need to work hard on defense then move on to the next game. Season is  marathon.

 

So what you are saying tundra is Wisconsin is not this...



   
Sad.....but true.
BUT, I think we have a pretty good chance at them next time!!!!!
P.S. Why is that Badger so unhappy??

I can't see why not! Wisc. was in their "comfort zone" last game. Few fouls called on their team and few turnovers. It was their type of game on their court. Game played out like a script!!
On "our" court with our fans the game may not be in their "comfort zone."

GREAT and very important win. Kids should now have a little extra "spring in their steps" during winter/spring/summer workouts. A feeling of "confidence" always helps!
Feel great for Ficken.
Also nice to see Hack get his "mojo" back!!!!!!!

My take:
Wow, what a successful preseason!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
12-1 is 12-1.  Several VERY close wins and only one close loss. Maybe we were fortunate because the Charlotte loss set us up for two weaker teams.
It seems like the team is starting to relax and play confidently on the court. The rotations have been set. Banks has jumped into the PT picture.
FWIW I think we are in as good as shape as possible entering into the Bigten11121314 season. How many wins does this mean??  Don't know.
Will our weaknesses be more exposed in league play?? Don't know.
The league play is a difficult marathon.
I will be excited to watch this team.

So far, so good  ;) ,

Interesting indeed!!!!!!!!
IF/when we sign him, where does he play?
I don't think we trade Mercer/Walker without seeing Kang in spring training.
But, his contract might be too high for a back-up!

I was surprised to read in the paper to see that Newbill scored  20 points - it was a quiet 20 points.

Yeah. Only 7 shots, I think. BUT that's a good sign. He wasn't really needed to score until the end game. Each game in the preseason the team learns and grows in different ways..............................AND.....we still get a W.

For the life of me I can NOT understand why any NON alumni should have ANY rights to the PSU board.   ???
IF the state contributes money.......then they can have a watching NON voting appointed alumni member or two.

I think it's clear to most all that the present BOT needs retooled! Let's do it a correct, common sense and fair way.
"Because it's always been that way" should NOT effect a SMART decision. 
I think 15 voting members would be a good sized BOT.

I believe PSU's voting BOT should be comprised of ONLY elected alumni!!
With the size of PSU's alumni  base we should not lack for qualified candidates!
The current events show that this IS an important job. Fair elections of qualified candidates can be done!!!

The VERY ironic thing about this whole situation is, we are regularly compared to Duke football (I believe it is even someone's signature on here).  In the same year that Duke football came from nowhere and became ranked, PSU basketball is coming from nowhere and at least receiving votes.

Maybe this Duke/PSU comparison has something to it ;-)

Very nice win! Best performance so far.
GW did not make any threes so they were limited to their inside game where 11 of their shots were blocked.
PSU seemed to be in the "comfort zone" all day.
Confident relaxed play!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Has the "Cupcake Recipe" worked for this team??   ;)

Your welcome,

Wiscy set to hire Pitts Chryst.

Isn't this some kind of record for HC turnover. This will be the 5th HC going back to Wanny!!!
