    Re: UC Basketball

    UC played a gritty basketball game. I was impressed with both the effort and the coaching, yes the coaching.

    I have been very critical of Wilks but I have come around to him. IMO he offers more than Bishop does and deserves to be on the court more. He brings a spark and can actually hit a 3. He needs to play within himself, but if he does he can become a very good player.

    As for Bilas comments I do tend to agree about the inbound pass. To me it doesn't make sense not to guard the ball. When the player can't move a guy like Gates can cut off many passing lanes. While the banked in 3 was guarded, Butler was able to catch the ball cleanly.

    I do think Wright pounds the ball into the floor too much. As said multiple times by Bilas, Stephenson needs to work without the ball. That, improving his shot, and defense will take him from a good player to an elite player. He likes the spotlight and came up big last night.

    Didn't like the last inbound play. 2 TO's and a poorly designed play. I would have had Wilks come to the ball and then turn and throw an outlet pass to the in bounder. Too often teams panic when the clock is under 10 seconds, but 6 seconds is a long time, especially when going straight towards the basket.

    Re: UC Basketball

    You all make very good comments but at the end of the day the main thing UC needs to do better is shoot the ball through the hoop. They are just so challenged in that area. They struggle from the field and from the free throw line. That's the object of the game and UC doesn't do it too well.

    I do think UC grew some in this tournament and if their performance gets them into another post season tourney that experience should be valuable as well. I don't know if they're good enough for the NIT but if they do go they can use the goal of getting back to New York to motivate them.

    Re: UC Basketball

    I've said all along that at their best the Bearcats remind me of the mid 90's versions of the team. Lots of generally ugly play, no offensive flow, terrible free throw shooters(anyone remember Keith Legree) and a defense that looks like they'd just as soon knock you upside the head for trying to get in the lane.
    What UC doesn't seem to have is the dynamic scorer who can bail them out when the half court offense stalls.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    Yep.

    "He called it,'' said Cincinnati's Lance Stephenson who was defending Butler. "He said, 'Bank.' I said, 'What?' I turned around and saw it go in. Oh man.''

    I like Huggins but the West Virginia fans make it incredibly hard to pull for them. One of the most classless fan bases ever.

    Classless part, some are in the eyes of others to an extent, I'll be the first to admit that when sPitt is in town, we have ZERO respect for them, same when VT used to have the cajonies to play us. WV fans are tired of their team not receving any respect from the rest of the nation. We may have never won the MNC however we are 14th on the all time wins list. Sorry if we don't compare to the mighty Buckeyes, but to say that WV fans have no class is an ignorant comment made by someone who has no clue what occurs in Mo-Town.

    Just this past season WV coaches and players embraced UCONN players before and after the game in the wake of Jasper Howard's tragic death, not to mention many people claimed that everyone was Huskies at Mountaineer Field on that October day. That victory over UCONN was bittersweet.

    Toothless part, typical stereotypes of WV. WV was obviously the smartest part of VA during the 19th Century, abolishing slavery, supporting Abe Lincoln and the Union, and being the only state formed from the Civil War.

    You are incorrect to assume you were the only one to be admonished. Besides, there's a difference between insulting a fan base and insulting an individual poster. You did the latter. You should have left it alone.

    And next time, PM me if you have a problem with what I did and leave it out of the forums.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Best to just ignore them since discussing a warning normally just gets you nothing but more negativity from them.
