Day 2 Tournament Thread

  • So far Oklahoma St/Michigan, a snoozer. They are playing defense.

  • Or just missing shots perhaps.

  • @BShark

    a lot of them

    Pokes pulling away with made shots/Michigan clanking everything

  • Slow start for Baylor.

  • @BShark

    turnover city!

  • @BeddieKU23

    What’s wrong with Baylor? They fell off a cliff after getting to #1/2 ranking.

  • @BShark

    They lost to Kansas is what happened.

  • @BeddieKU23

    I think the KSU loss was mildly worse for them.

  • @BShark

    Freeman was also suspended and he looks worse since coming back. Lecomte was injured… They peaked early and didn’t have enough guard depth to sustain

  • Well Oklahoma St started playing no defense for that stretch

  • 5 points in 7 minutes for Baylor. BILL SELF TOURNAMENT CHOKE SPECIAL FOR THEM.

  • @BeddieKU23 said:

    Have they defended anyone all year? Serious question.

  • @BShark

    Maston just made a 3, I’m laughing

    Edit sorry Freeman

  • @BShark

    No which is surprising given the coach but I guess we could say the same about our team given the coach

  • wow the guy with 6 names for Michigan is draining shots

  • @BeddieKU23

    Yeah I would expect Underwood’s OSU teams to defend better in time. Right now he is playing with T Ford’s scraps.

  • This game is truly awful.

  • At least OSU/Michigan is living up to its billing

  • Ran to check my bracket, SMU over Baylor in the next round. Thank goodness, don’t have to change that.

  • I teach in a rough place and I got mixed up in a girl fight today trying to play the peacemaker. A minor shot to the face drew a little blood, enough to take the afternoon off. Basketball all day, here we come!

  • @wissox

    Maybe some adult beverages will help?

  • Truth be told I’d rather still be at school, but all in all it’ll work out.

  • @wissox

    Shot to the face as in a punch? I’d sure hope that over a gunshot! Get better soon.

  • @BeddieKU23 I’m pretty much a teetotaller! For me an adult beverage is a pot of coffee, but you go ahead and have one for me!

  • way too many fouls on 3’s in that first half. Solomon is an idiot. OSU down 1 at half

  • @wissox

    Wish I could, fighting the stomach bug which I don’t wish upon anyone unless your last name is Calvert

  • @BShark Thankfully no guns! basically my glasses cut my nose. These kids are vicious

  • @wissox

    Glad to hear it!

    What age?

  • @BShark High school, freshman and Junior.

  • I was thinking that our streak of every tournament except one since 1986, 30 tournaments entered I suppose, 28 of them have seen us win the opening game, and if I counted in my head correctly, 20 of them have not ended until we’ve won at least two games. Pretty cool stuff. However you undo a jinx right now, do what ever you do please because I don’t want to jinx us today.

  • @BShark DANG does Baylor know how to play any defense? - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • Highly entertaining game going on. OSU up 6 under 15 timeout

  • @BeddieKU23 Michigan survived the worst plane crash in the history of aviation is the storyline that I heard all weekend during the big10 tournament, therefore they deserve to win.

  • @wissox

    We all know that word deserving doesn’t hold water in the tourney… But yeah crazy story and events.

  • So Vandy is a 9 seed and Minnesota is a 5, but KState barely gets in and OK State is a 10? Give me a break. People whining about WSU being a 10 when OSU beat them by 17 earlier this season. OK State should be a 6 or a 7.

  • This post is deleted!

  • Juwon Evans came to ball! Got them beating Louisville in my bracket. Hope they can get past Michigan and do it.

  • And Oklahoma St., after losing their first 6 in conference, then won 10 of their last 11. In fact the only games they lost after that point were to Iowa State, Baylor, and Kansas, and all of those games were by single digits. It should be apparent to anyone with a pulse that OK State is much better than a 10 seed, and certainly much better than the Vanderbilt/Northwestern teams we saw play yesterday. Easily a 7 seed in my mind the way they are playing right now.

    If the ACC is the best conference and the Big12 is 7-1 against them, what does that make the Big12?

  • wow Michigan raining 3’s…

  • @BeddieKU23 Ya 12-23 from 3 for Michigan. They can’t miss today.

  • 7 3’s this half already

  • Shades of Burke on that Walton three…

  • @Texas-Hawk-10

    Basically OSU was good against the bottom half of the big twelve, terrible against the top half.

  • @KirkIsMyHinrich They made more than their fair share last week against the Badgers too.

  • @BShark They did win in Morgantown, though.

  • OSU has to run Michigan off the 3 point line, isn’t it obvious? more than half their total field goals are 3’s…

  • As good as Evans is, 16 points on 19 shots will get you beat every night

  • This is insane shooting… OSU is toasted!

  • Baylor making a run.

  • Got Ok st in my “emotion” bracket and Michigan on my Ken Pom by Defensive Efficiency bracket. Really would love to see pokes represent the big 12 well here.
