    Connor just holds onto the ball in End of Game situations

    Waiting to be fouled

    So he can march to the free-throw line

    Solid strategy

    Has worked every game

    Foul should have been called

    Settle the situation right now

    Beggars can't be choosers at the end of the game clock tho. I see both sides.

    We just best the 1st place team to get us one game back with 9 to go. The fact that it was Illinois for some reason made this game seems less big before it started (which it shouldn't have) but man it feels big now.

    It's a British Isles name and has been pronounced that way forever. Cockburn's is an English-based distiller/distributor of Port wines. Bruce Cockburn is a singer/songwriter. Both pronounce it the same way.

    Need more from Kreiner, a lot more from Evelyn to really make a run to finish the conf out strong.

    Toussant is going to get better and better.

    And Pemsl, oh Pemsl....just gotta get 2-3 non turnover minutes per half to rest Garza and or JW.

    Absolutely cannot have large stretches of Pemsl and Evelyn in at the same time, put way too much pressure on others to have any scoring.

    Evelyn wasn't open by the time he caught the pass. Wieskamp was open earlier in the play coming around a screen but Connor was looking the other direction. Evelyn shouldn't be in the game if he's not willing to shoot at the end of the shot clock. I think he is but Illinois had swarming defense on that particular play.

    Good assessment.

    *Any* points from Pemsl is a big bonus. Same with Evelyn. Imagine if we didn't have Evelyn....yikes.

    Toussant isn't going to be a big-scorer this year, but he doesn't need to be. His driving opens everything up.
    I wonder how the Toussant/JBo is going to work next year.

    Pffft....the NCAA will be nothing as compared to the B1G pressure-cooker this year. If we get a 'good' NCAA draw, we should win at least a couple of games.

    I am to the point that I would play Till over Pemsl. Till brought some nice energy when Kreiner and Garza were in foul trouble against Maryland.

    need evelyn and kriener to hit some open shots going forward. touissant as well. if they are going to give you open looks and not guard you, you have to step up and hit something so they can't just soak down on the lane.

    People just say 'coburn' because they don't want to say the real pronunciation.

    I read an article once that it originally was pronounced with a cock, but was changed along the way. I suppose he's allowed to change his cock if he so chooses. Actually, if I recall correctly, the name relates to scratches from a rooster.

    How would you know if I'm good or not, I never posted anything about it at all, just enjoyed what others did. Looks like you made a judgement post that referred to nothing... nice play.
