CMU @ Buffalo (2/7 - 9pm)

Recommended Posts

9pm ESPNU (Blackout promo) game against what is turning out to be a top-tier MAC team.

Better show up for this one or crowds are going to be thin down the stretch.

IDK what to say -- defend, don't turn the ball over, make free throws, care, try, beat a dead horse?

At this point...just figure things out. This is the last game before we get a week off. Much needed at this point. This team needs to regroup and begin the process of trying to correct the little things that we aren’t doing to win these tight games we’ve been losing. Aside from that, as @Jesephsaid...beat the dead horse.

I wouldn't want to sit and think about losing 4 of the last 5 for a week but I'm honestly not sure if this team is worried about it.

I was speaking more in terms of getting practice and video time in. Back to the grind of trying to work on things we have issues with.

Central gets to the foul line and they shoot extremely well from there. A good 3 point shooting team but below average from 2. Their defense is also below average. The Bulls should outreound the Chippewas. Bulls 90 Chippewas 83

CMU has their best player playing. Completely different game than the first time. 

UB has a lot of work to stop this from going to under .500 this late in many years

Minor snow storm this morning and this evening. Expecting a weak crowd based on that and recent results. The enthusiasm is definitely down from my anecdotal interactions.

Hopefully the efforts on the floor are more than enthusiastic.

I took a look this morning at number of possessions vs Win or Loss (just in MAC games).  It clearly demonstrates that if the Bulls play more uptempo (i.e. with enthusiasm), they are more likely to come out with a win.

1622658242_Win_LossvsNumberofPossessions.JPG.4a4525d4bfac4f62624ca4d1491087b0.JPG

Note there are only eight dots instead of ten because we have two wins with 73 possessions and two losses with 75 possessions.  So I know it is limited stats, but 72 or less possessions, we have lost every game; for 73 - 75 possessions - it is basically a coin flip.  Finally 76 or more possessions we have won every game.

Oh and for added incentive - I noticed that Central Michigan, gets most of its minutes from five players - so we could take better advantage of their lack of depth if we run more and tire them out.

There is a Watch Party tonight in New York City at All Stars Sports Bar and Grill at 327 West 57th Street.  This was where the Anchor Bar used to be.

At prior watch parties pictures of the people there were shown on the screen in Alumni Arena.  Will it happen again, do not know.  But would you want to miss the chance to have your picture on the scoreboard in Alumni?

Be there, Aloha!

Not getting at you. Taking a jab at the student body.

Fickle students. We used to go in any conditions and any time. 

They seem to need nationally ranked teams to show up.....

Same. We use to stand and get loud for all 40 minutes. And that wasn’t long ago.

Starting lineup change...Hardnett is getting the start. Nothing wrong with Brock, coach just said he wanted to reward Hardnett who has practiced well and performed well against CMU the first time.

I’m glad. I haven’t liked some of his off the court mannerisms, but my take is a small sample size. So, I’m glad the coaches express a different take.

So far so good! Good energy and hustle but some ridiculous shots such as Johnson’s step back 3. yuk!

One of the things that drives me nuts is ball screen defense. The one thing you cannot do is step behind the screen a and let a descent shooter a wide open shot. You either have to get over the top, switch (Which can create mid-matches) or have the screeners defender step up alongside the screen to creat space for the defender to get over the top of the screen. It just basic stuff that we continue to struggle with.
