Re: USU still @55 after SDSU loss

Too bad LSU couldn’t beat Kentucky last night. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Florida gets 2 shots at Kentucky before the SEC tourney. On a side note, I know that the NET rating is the main tool, but I remember that the committee does still look at the other ratings. USU is 41 in Net today, but...

Re: 8-15 3 point shooting

The problem is at this point, it’s a planned turnover whenever he shoots the ball. It’s not a coincidence that when he took most of his shots during the 1st half is when we went on a 4 minute scoring drought.

Brito

Great game for Brito tonight. 10pts, 7 rebs, 3 ast, 2/4 from 3. Really played back to his normal game. Good hustle. Good defense. He forced a few things like the pass to Bean that turned into a turnover. Compare that to his counterpart Miller who took the 2nd most attempts but finished with only 5 p...

Re: Can we win with only three productive players?

Ajay Salvesen tweeted out an interesting stat. The Aggies are 27-0 over the last two years when Diogo Brito scores in double figures. I think that kind of goes to the point of the OP, we need more than Merrill, Queta and Bean to consistently win games. Diogo seems to be an x-factor this season and ...

I think the other thing we have going for us in the eyes of the committee when it comes time to select at large is the absence of Queta in the early season. He has now returned and settled in and his play has returned to a high level. The committee will be aware of this and have shown this type of c...

Re: How Ugly was this game?

There was a hard foul but I do believe the extra pull down after the initial foul could be considered flagrant. Excessive or unnecessary contact. I think if they would have reviewed it, they would have had a long discussion. It was close for sure.

Re: USU still @55 after SDSU loss

Even with the Vandy loss, they only dropped a little ways. They have so many good Q1 and Q2 wins that one loss isn’t move the meter much. A Kentucky win should offset that loss. Really it’s so amazing we came back from down 19 on them. Great win

I am surprised no one seems to care how many times Bairstow drives to the basket and either fumbles the ball away or throws up a “shot” that goes straight up not making it within 10 feet of the rim. Those possessions are just as bad as a missed three. To be fair, he did make a much needed layup tor...
