Well it , – -it’s game day my friends. Hate sitting around all day, long day, nervous- this is going to be a test. Like I have heard multiple times from people, it’s going to come down to who can control pace of game. - -W wana get out and run -Purdue more grind and pound big boys - -so how will it go? - - We can’t afford foul trouble Soooo with that being said - - time for some predictions. I’ll have to say KU 84 - – Purdue 79 – ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
Here is an interesting statistic. If it is true, I still find it inconceivable, but this is from the Purdue basketball official site. Look at Purdue’s total blocks this year (sorry if you have to squint), compared to their opponents’.
Now compare ours:
We have almost twice as many blocks? I am not sure length equals rim intimidation, folks! And we are defending opps’ FGs at the same % rate as the big bad team.
@mayjay One thing I’ve noticed even before this, we are pretty dam even all across the boards we shoot 49% - they shoot 48%, - - they average 38 rebounds per - - we average - -39 rebounds per they shoot 40.4 % -for the game from 3pt range, - - we shoot 40.6 % from the 3 pt range. - - -they average 80 points we average 83, per game - - it’s gonna be close… - -they got 9 players averaging 12 minutes or more - - -Can’t afford to put them at the line a lot, they shoot pretty well- - - Time to Rock. - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
@mayjay I mentioned this somewhere else, but it’s worth repeating. Haas and Swanigan had the two most post ups in the country according to JNew yesterday.
