Well, can we get Marchifornication ready to go on short notice?
Well, they were down 3 with the ball. He basically gave us 2 free possessions instead of them having the opportunity to tie it. Connor got 2 free throws. We got the ball back. They had to foul Garza. We missed 2 freebies and didn't take full advantage, but that was still an amazingly awful decision.
His teammates should've given him the bar-of-soap-in-a-sock treatment.
It was an interesting argument with the refs though. Rutgers wasn't in the bonus so his guys were unintentionally intentionally fouling. He wanted the refs to call a foul on his guys. What exactly does arguing to the point of getting the technical tell the refs to do in the second half? Call Iowa players for more fouls? It was a one-time situation, not a tech because his guys are getting mauled. It was a dumb foul.
Yeah, I'm not exactly sure how his barrel-roll isn't traveling, but it was a cool play.
Agree. It's hard to believe his stock would ever be higher if he was a finalist for POTY. The height might be late first round, early second, but all the "negatives" on him aren't going to change with another year.
On the other hand, if you're going to be a second round guy this year or a second round guy next year, maybe you decide to stay around and make a run at the NCAA Championship with a healthy Bohannon and another year of experience for everyone else. We'd lose Kriener, but Nunge and PMac should be able to fill that role.
It would be very disappointing if we had a NCAAM and NCAAW POTY in back to back years that weren't highly regarded by the Pros.
From the beginning of the game, he just seemed more focused. It was like was on a mission to be remembered in this one. The boy from the Bronx wanted to show up the Jersey boys.
