So what ya think? / score today

  • I’m thinking score today - -somewhere like KU 87 - -Iowa State 79 looking for an up and down instead of a Baylor type - -much better flow. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • Ku 86. ISU 67

  • @jayballer54 Well, first game: Screenshot 2017-02-04 07.52.08.png

    I dont expect 14 from Lucas. Expectation: - 4

    Frank… About right. Expectation: +0

    Devonte - heating up. Let’s go: +6

    Svi … Let’s go -3

    JJ. Been on fire, lightswitch is on. Expectation : +10

    Bragg/Coleby. Losing these points, Coleby will get the minutes and rebs but not much O. Expectation: -8

    Lagerald. I expect a bounce back game but not this kind of efficiency. Expectation +0

    Wow, we only shot 5 free throws in first game? That should well go up, but offensively we were very efficient first go around, so I’ll just take that as padding why the 78 feels safe.

    76 - 4 + 0 + 6 - 3 + 10 - 8 + 0 = 78

    Iowa State …

    9 of 27 seems about right for perimeter. Means they were 19 of 36 inside. I think we got some run against big teams the last couple games and figured some stuff out, Let’s make that 16 of 35 inside, with a couple extra TOs and denied entry passes. 7 of 10 on free throws seems right.

    So I’ll go: KU 78-66 ISU

  • My second guess for score would be:

  • Bowies suspended for today’s game

  • I’ve been surprised this year how well opponents are shooting at AFH. I still can’t understand how or why Motley disappeared in the second half after playing like an NBA all star in the first half. The man was unstoppable.

    I’m hoping for a great game by Lucas today. He’s looked fit and motivated the last two games, except for his reluctance to shoot in the first half against Baylor. Jackson is shooting too many 3’s, but I guess he has the green light if that’s what the defense is giving him. Mason should get back to his 50% form on 3’s.

    Our defense on Matt Thomas will be crucial, since he’s been hitting 3’s. I assume Svi and Vick will guard Thomas. Unless I State gets super hot from 3, we should cruise today. Our 3 point defense better be good.

  • @stoptheflop

    Some of it was good adjustments by our defense to bring the double team as quickly as possible.

    But more than likely we saw Scott Drew again show why he can’t beat Bill Self at X’s and O’s. You have to blame Baylor’s guards for not getting him the ball either.

  • Iowa St is terrible but they have always played well in Allen. I expect the 1st half to be close and KU to wear them down late

  • @stoptheflop Motley could not get touches as he did 1st half & when he did the zone smothered him. THe other guys still hit some 3’s but the zone negated Motley just enough for the win. Pretty 🐺 foxy call by Self if ya ask me…

  • I expect this one to be really tight. ISU needs a signature win to get into the tourney. If they lose today they go to 13-9 which is pretty awful. I like KU in a close 80-75 victory.

  • The zone harassed Motley, but this was compounded by the Baylor point guard picking up 4 fouls early in the second half.

    This might be a positive for them lol.

  • @approxinfinity you know I had forgot. - - Josh really didn’t do much there, I agree the way he has been playing I think he will have a pretty good game. - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Man I’m sorry I guess that I’m ever more dum , then I thought. - -Who is BowIe?- -I don’t even remember him. - -Is he a pretty good player for them? - -I know their fans talk about him too, guess I had one giant brain fade. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @stoptheflop I read a piece and they were talking about the last game, it may have been off their board not sure, BUT they was talking and said SVI guarded Thomas last game and made it difficult for him to even get a shot off, so I agree there for sure. - - After the Baylor game Coach and our guy ( The reporter ) on the radio, can’t remember his name, use to play for us - -anyways they talked about Josh and the three - -Coach said I think over his last three games know he had shot it like maybe 11-18 over 50% so I dunno, could be they are trying to get him to work on that, If he starts or keeps even hitting those like he has been recently - - Then look out. - -Definetely would be huge for him - -and for sure us, make him even so much more dangerous. - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • If we don’t win it would be a disaster, this is probably the easiest game in this 8 game stretch.

  • @BeddieKU23 HE only shot ONCE the 2nd half - it was crazy, whether they quite going to him, even their fans was talking about that - -wondering why. I agree with you, think it was a combination of things they possibly just screwed up - -quit going to him, BUT does that happen? - -your main player a guy who just recently went off for 30-20 and you quit going to him.- -You got to find him, and/or Coach made adjustments on him for us and then too - - him as a player He has to do a better job like when he is open he has to demand the ball. - But hey works for me. – -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • Blowout today! Self is going to hypnotize the players into reading “KC STAR” on the Cyclones jerseys instead of “IOWA STATE”, and they will crush them like roaches.

  • @jayballer54 Greg Gurley on radio or Chris Piper on tv

  • @BShark I think its an easier 10-12 pt win. Our seniors want to play well-not many more home games left for them. Or JJ either for that matter. The countdown is on.

  • KU - 88, ISU - 66. Our threes will fall and we run them out of the gym.

  • @rocketdog If ISU gives up that many pts fran will have to lie & tell us how it REALLY happened cause Monte Morris is just S-oooooooooo damn good… Personally I think they may even be a bubble team…

  • @globaljaybird ya that’s right - -just couldn’t remember his name for some reason - -had a brain fade lol - - ROCK CHALK ALLDY LONG BABY

  • @globaljaybird

    Unless ISU plays better defense, it’s how I see the game unfolding. But yeah Fran could vapor-lock on us if his guy looks pedestrian.

    I love your confidence and descriptive prose. RCJH

  • @wrwlumpy fires me up lump! 🔥

  • The real question is what’s the chance the Maryland/Purdue game goes to OT?

  • @Bwag nearly 100% because I’m ready to watch the Jayhawks. ESPN sucks.

  • Andrew White scored 23 as Syracuse upsets Virginia.

  • @stoptheflop Thanks. I was trying to figure out a bug that is universally despised. First half was good. I just hope these particular roaches aren’t the survive-a-nuclear-war type!
