Purposely tripped Caruso yesterday during the game. I totally missed that..did anyone else see it? It's on the bottom of the ESPN homepage.
In passing yesterday I saw a few plays and Noel was pinning players on his back with his arms while they were trying to get around the pick. At that point I stopped watching the game. The refs were ball watching yesterday as bloom said.
Yea I saw it, right in front of an official too, Caruso gave a look and some words to the ref.
Yep. It was right at midcourt.
Noel is a star and his calls are treated as such.
Was this before or after AC thew his shit into the first row?
Was this before or after he posterized Kourtney on 3 different plays?
LOL...I could get lucky once and posterize Kourtney.
Let's focus on the Great White Hype, thrown.
I just dont understand how Kourtney is playing high-level D-1 basketball. He's horrible. But you're right, I'm way off track. I was actually impressed with the play of the rest of the team and the coaching as well, especially on D when we kept mixing in zone looks. If they play like this the rest of the way could at least salvage the season in terms of conference record and NIT seating.
Blasphemy. Joseph Jones finished at the rim. Kourtney couldn't finish if he was the only guy on the court.
I get where you were going with that but please don't ever compare Kourtney and Aggie Legend Joe Jones ever again.
Kourtney's problem is confidence. Dude plays soft and timid.
Agreed Thrown. The zone they were mixing in with Caruso at the top of it was pretty damn effective as long as someone didn't have a brain fart and leave Mays open.
Our problem remains to be on the offensive side of things. Just a bunch of guards dribbling and handing off beyond the 3pt line until there's about 7 seconds left on the shot clock. Then it's find Elston time for a forced jumper or turnover.
I still think that they need to grab the board and push it down the floor every possession. Slowing it down and running our "offense" isn't the answer.
Like I said, I get where you're coming from but I'm not comfortable with mentioning KR in the same breath as Joe Jones.
The offense drives me nuts. When the team actually runs the pick and roll, its an easy two every time. Our guards are so bad at using the screens or the post-men forget to release so often that we rarely can pull it off. Too often the team just looks at Elston to make the play while they're standing around. I can hear my dad screaming "You pay good money for that seat?!?!" in my head every time I watch how lazy we are on offense. Talent level is low, but the real problem is that our perceived strength at guard has turned out to be a liability. Reese isn't 1/3 the player he was billed to be. Plays too stupid and lazy. Harris could be a good off-guard if he had a good PG, but since we don't have that he handles the ball too much and doesn't see the court well. On the whole, the team ball-handling is atrocious. That being said, the SEC really sucks so I could still see us finishing near the top of the conference if we play like we did against UK night in and night out.
Yep, our guards are horrific at using a screen in a pick-n-roll situation. No intent on using it to get to the basket or into the lane to draw defenders. Just dribbling around the 3pt line until the shot clock runs down.
Caruso is the only player that regularly looks to penetrate. He does and turns it over frequently but at least the kid is trying to use the screen to his advantage.
If you couldn't tell, I really love Alex Caruso. I'd love a starting five of 3 Fabyon Harris' and 2 Alex Caruso's.
You trying to tell me that if you had 3 Fab Harrises, 3 Alex Carusos and 2 Jared Jahnses you could win the Final Four?
Throw in 1/2 of a Andrew Young and we're there man.
