Penn State Basketball / Re: Tim Frazier in the NBA
« on: Today at 06:33 AM »
Frazier played possessed tonight.

27 points, 16 assists (2 turnovers) and 9 rebounds.  He actually had an easy chance at a 10th rebound on the last shot of the game but mistimed his jump by about 3 minutes and the ball went out of bounds.

I've heard of bad timing, but misjudging a jump by three minutes might set an all-time record. ;)

Exaggeration for effect :)

His teammates set him up to get the rebound knowing there'd be a last second desperate attempt from 3.   He was right under the basket when the shot went off the rim.  But mistimed the jump.  It caused a few laughs by his teammates and the announcers.

Frazier's first game back with Maine tonight.  He needs 5 rebounds for another triple double

Another disappointing loss.  But nice to see the team respond after the NW egg.

probably a no-call... i don't know, you drive in 1 v 3 and expect a call you probably aren't going to get it.

To Garner's credit he didn't fly in there out of control.  Just the Iowa guy got to the spot first.

I was at a restaurant for my wife's co-worker's going away party.  Bored to death as the only +1 there till I realized this game was on in the bar.

Is Washington redshirting?  I believe he played in a game this year.

Probably seeking a medical redshirt or a hangnail.

Not only that, only his second year in the US period.  And he came here not knowing English.

Davis seems to be struggling...

Why do you say that??

Hasn't broken double digits in 5 of his last 6 games and averaging less than a 3 a game during that stretch.



And their leading scorer who takes the majority of the team's shots is averaging 13.4 ppg during that stretch including 10ppg in his last three, and he's a 16ppg scorer.

I'd say it's just a small school team in a big time league in the meat of its conference schedule.

As far as I can tell she's our first commitment (in any sport) for the Class of 2017.

Actually, UncleLar, Amanda Lehotak's softball program has two 2018 verbals and three 2019 verbals, according to GoldFastpitch.com.  Now, whether it makes any sense for kids to commit that far in advance is another question.

Wow.  Thanks. 

The lacrosse team has 2017 and 2018 commitments, too.

What intrigues me about Reeves is he's not your typical recruit who will enter college used to being the man on his high school team.  For as good as he is, he's Oak Hill's 6th man.

Minny wins by 6 and generally controlled the entire OT

This is amazing all the fouls going against MSU at home.

Minny and MSU, wow.

MSU keeps MInny in the game late by fouling and missing its own FTs.

Minny takes a 3 to tie, makes it and gets fouled, but misses the FT.  Going to OT.

Cory Giger @CoryGiger

Chambers, on his radio show, also said PSU could have different starting lineup vs Iowa. Wants to reward players for hard work in practice.

Well Curley was never going to do anything.  Joyner sure as hell wasn't going to do anything.

"Pablo S. Torre estimated in Sports Illustrated that the probability of a man taller than seven feet making the NBA was a staggering 17 percent"

What's the probability of a man being seven feet?

I'd like to think the coach would tell the kid before he tells local beat writers.

PSU's not wasting any time taking advantage of hockey's success.   The season isn't even over and I've already gotten a bill for next year.  That's about a month and a half earlier than last year. 

I'd guess it's a global thing since they pushed up football renewals a couple months, too

    What do you remember about getting your first offer?

    My first offers came from Ohio State and Penn State on the same day. It was last year when we played at Dunk 4 Diabetes. Someone saw it on Twitter and sent it to me. I didn't even know. I found out there.



Doesn't seem like an offer if you don't know about it O_o

Sources tell me that Ohio State has offered a hoops ride to St. Edward 6-9 soph Derek Funderburk. Can't say as I blame them. #seeuin3yrs

Defense has improved, but only in spurts.  After a few minutes of impressive defense, they lapse into the same laziness and it burns them.
