    BTW...I thought Hanner looked great yesterday. The kid needs more minutes.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    I would not consider OSU a "very good conference win" this year. This is a team that lost to Penn State twice.

    It's hard to say what a good conference win is this year(or conversely a bad conference loss) That's why I'm thinking 9-9 may be enough to make the NCAA tournament.

    It's easy to say: OSU is not a good conference win this year.

    OSU is a good team. I am not ready to concede that they are a bad team yet. That IU game frustrated me about as bad as any game has this season. The PSU game is easier to shrug off because the officials took control of the game early. But yesterday's game was just a comedy of errors.

    OSU got out to a good start but Thad watched a 10 (or 8) point lead dwindle to a sizable deficit without making any lineup changes. He did call a TO but until Q picked up a T he went with the same lineup. The same lineup that had trouble scoring. The same lineup with Smith Jr on the bench who had been having a good game.

    Then in the second OSU clawed within 2 points for a number of possessions. But those offensive possessions were awful. Their offensive flow was terrible and they had two or three players on the court who were no threat to score. Shannon Scott has taken a step back offensively this season, Trey McDonald doesn't belong on the court with the exception of picking up 5 fouls, and when Sam Thompson isn't confident in his shot he does nothing on offense except looking for a lob.

    Now to Aaron Craft. The worst two game stretch I have seen him have in his career. Under 4 minutes with a 6-10 point deficit Craft went on a span of empty possessions that either ended in a turn over or a terrible layup attempt against a center. He needs to play better.

    Apparently there is a rumor spreading that Dwight K Schrute threw a party after IU upset OSU because that put the Hoosiers somewhere close to the bubble. Is that true or did they cut down the nets?

    Both actually. The rings for this year's team will note not one but two two game winning streaks in conference play.

    He really answered the bell. Most importantly, it wasn't the bell for last call.

    Nice job, Hanner!

    Just wait until you see the new trophy case and its location. (hint: The real reason for the roof collapse.)

    Calling OSU a good conference win is way different that call OSU a good conference team...

    His performance certainly gives some hope for next year when Vonleh is likely gone. He's certainly not nearly as skilled as Vonleh, but yesterday he looked like a guy who can at least contribute to a good team. Maybe Hanner's discipline was working on post moves and footwork for 5 hours a day

    It has been a strange year for sure across the conference landscape. Still some ball to be played, it will be interesting as to how it all plays out.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    To be honest, I think they need him this year.

    Agreed, but OSU was ranked when IU beat them at least. It definitely will help their tournament shot if they can at least take care of Nebraska and not tank in the conference tourney.

    Ok, just win the B1G tournament then. It's simpler that way.
