Penn State Basketball / Re: vs Akron IGT
« on: Today at 09:25 AM »
Akron missed a few easy looks early, but on second watch, not sure why you run an alley-oop for a player who can't play above the rim and the open 3 came off a scramble situation. So yes, missing shots is a big part of the game as Taylor and Garner missed some great looks that were set up beautifully, too. You can't always credit Penn State's defense for that. But you're selling the total defensive effort from Penn State in the second half way short, particularly Dickerson. Forsythe, Robotham, they all kept attacking him in the first 6 minutes of 2nd period and failed more often than not down low. It was an impressive display. 

Agreed!  It was like a different defensive unit in the 2nd half and that's how PSU needs to play all the time.  Good D creates opportunities for run outs and easy buckets.  The hoop started to get smaller for Akron after we locked up and hit some buckets and put pressure on them to score.

+1! I just LOVED PSU's effort on D in the second half! Keep it up now guys!

I wonder if Pat and Co actually believe they play good D. 





Maybe I'm the crazy one.

Well, I'm in the looney bin then with you LP!

Yeah I guess. PSU also won 5 straight games when they won the NIT.

This is like fights breaking out among the hostages.

As soon as Dean Wormer started in I knew I would be watching him provoke die-hard Penn State basketball fans into arguing against their team. It's a gift!

I have him IL'd and rarely see what he's saying unless someone quotes him, but I can almost guarantee he's making this about Ed and the "ignorant fanbase".  We all know his boy Pat hasn't done anything wrong here, and it's just a matter of time until this thing really gets rolling.  I mean, if you think year 4's OOC tournament was a success (5th place in a stacked field), just wait another 4 years when he's really had time to clean up the mess Ed left for him.  Ignorant fans don't realize that it takes a solid decade to rebuild a program that made the post-season 2 out of the 3 years prior to a coach taking over.

We are recruiting at a higher level than we have ever before and we are getting these kids from the most fertile reccruitng ares closest to State College.

Pat Chambers has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he can get his kids to scratch and claw every night.

Now, if PC could only teach these kids how to play some solid D and keep giving teams wide open looks! IMO, PC's teams seem no better or different than ED's teams were.

D.J. Newbill's 83 combined points in Penn State's three @ESPNCharleston games is a tournament record.

With 1.7 seconds left I would of had everyone on the other side of the court, football throw.....Game Over

That inbounds pass was scary.....Glad we got the W

That brings back memories of Mooch Jackson's "football throw" out of bounds at the end of a game some ear ago... ended up turning into a final bucket for them and loss for us.

And who remembers who beat PSU that night?  :)
SELA?

Yep, as Rokk used to say, you win a cookie!   :D

well that tournament went about as bad as one could have hoped... but i guess we got out of there 2-1 so record-wise it could have been a slightly bigger disaster. 

let's hope they learned a few things down there and get their act together quickly.  not the tournament we hoped this group was capable of putting together though.

True, buts let not forget that PSU took the team that is playing in the final tonight into 2 OT's before losing. I am sure it is pretty tough playing 3 games in 4 days when the last two games are just consolation games. Not making excuses for PSU's lousy play, this team has a long way to go to be good!
