Re: Buckeye hoops
While Butler may not be a true PG like MC (there weren't many better at college level than Conley was at the end), IMO Jamar is doing a very fine job running the team this year. He leads the B10 in assist at 6/game (1 more per game then the guy in 2nd). In the 3 conf games to date he's averaging nearly 9. He also has 2.7 assist-to-TO ratio and shooting 42% from 3. And just by watching the games that I've seen, he is the guy in total control out there. The hole would be huge this year if he were to go down as we are very thin at that spot.
I have not seen a blowout like that Iowa game in a while. They had a double digit lead very early on and just kept stretching it beyond 30. Iowa was surprisingly bad, as was Illinois. I agree the conference seems weak after MSU, Indiana, Wisky and the Buckeyes (and possibly Minny). I loved the effort on D by the Bucks the entire night. They have really started tio sell me on their zone, but I'd prefer they rebound a bit better out of it.
