Re: Anyone else desperate enough to watch USUs 2K8 game right now?

Good to see Kuba get some big 2nd half minutes. That experience will pay dividends next year. Also, I'm glad to see Bairstow's broken arm healed quickly!

Re: Let's Just Enjoy Sam Frickin' Merrill's Last Performance

Sam Merrill's 3 point shot will go down as the most iconic college basketball shot of March 2020. Great moment. Great player.

Other than the game winner, what was your favorite moment?

The back-to-back 3s by Sam to go up 44-42. Bean's reaction was my reaction. Loved it!

The Queta ram dunk and 1 to go up 51-47. Also great.

Fonzo's back-to-back 3s to bring us back to 36-37.

Others?

I think it’s easy to forget, Miller was a big factor in the game at SDSU being as close as it was but has since struggled. Watching the game last night, there is something to say about the gravity he commands from defenses. FWIW Brock would’ve had 1 3pt field goal had Sam not “committed” a “charge”...

Re: Kuba?

While I don't think Kuba should be taking any 3's, the fact that he took one that was wide open shouldn't be too upsetting. He'd have to take and miss 3 more of those per game to do worse than Miller but if one of those 4 goes in, we suddenly have an unguardable Miller at 7 foot 2.

Queta does go in and take up wide positions that make me cringe on every rebound and defensive play. The last minute injury appeared to be a fluke play with the SDSU player losing his footing independent of anything Queta was doing.

Re: So we went from probably needing to win the MWCT...

When you have some quality wins (LSU/Florida) then you are given some forgiveness for 1 or 2 bad losses like AFA or even Boise. In years past, 1 or 2 bad road losses was the disqualifier because we never had any good OOC wins. I would think if we win out other than 2 losses to SDSU, assuming the MWC...

I agree with all points AF makes. It pains me to watch our offense not run screens off or on the ball for Merrill. Our offense feels way too forced.
