    Terrible last shot I don't get why we didn't have a guy screening for the inbound take so he doesn't have to go all the way on the dribble...no screen any where you have to get a better shot than that jesus christ

    Not quite the Evan Turner play...catch ball back to basket 90 feet away?

    That was not well done.

    One of the most extreme cases I've seen. Why is Hammons allowed to body-slam the opponent when he "blocks" a shot? And why is Purdue allowed to clutch and grab every fucking time on defense?

    Pissed off right now.

    What exactly do you suggest, down two with 4.6 sec and no time-outs?

    How about throwing the ball more than 2 feet without running toward your own basket for starters ? Maybe have a guy down there to set a pick so the defender isn't ridding his nuts all the way down the court forcing a 40 footer.

    Marc Loving could've made a difference. Unfortunately, he did something to make Thad leave him in Columbus.

    They've also beat 3 straight ranked teams at home this year.

    If I was a teammate I'd be encouraging and helping Loving to get his act together...

    Well first off, Purdue had a great crowd there tonight. Second off, that is no excuse to losing:

    1) Tate is my boy. He makes me gradually get over my Craft hangover. Incredible effort and basketball IQ...different skill set but he is going to be a treat (not news if you have watched us all year, just felt like it has been consistent enough to be reinforced now).

    2) Damnit, Russell is so good. Just saying this objectively...he is the best basketball player I have seen at Ohio State in my lifetime. I am 26, so that would include Scoonie Penn, Michael Redd, Jarred Sullinger, Mike Conley, Turney, Oden, Thomas, Diebs, etc. I wish he had more surrounding him but this kid is just so pure...can hit any shot on the court, incredible vision, amazing feel passing, quick, fast, and makes everything feel seamless. Enjoy him all you can this year, I seriously think he is the next Kyrie in the NBA after this year.

    3) Loving HAS to be here for this team to make any type of run. We played great defense and scored to our strengths tonight...we just need Loving in to hit some shots. Yeah...Thompson and Scott can hit some shots here and there. But without Loving to score, they are just placeholders.

    4) We have no bigs. Just accept it at this point. Amir occupies a general area and despite his talent, he watches plays happen to him routinely. Trey efforts as much as possible but cannot close on the talent gap, and Lee has a flash or two, then disappears. If anyone has bigs like Purwho, they will exploit that area. There is nothing we can "improve on" here...we just suck in the paint.

    5) We just have to try to out-shoot our issues with bigs. If we cannot, we are a very early out in the tourney. I actually think we played alright tonight, I just have watched us enough to know our limitations. But what this means...a group of Loving, Kam, Bates-Diop, and Scott/Thompson have to get hot in that span.

    I'm sure one of your other 3 "favorite" teams would have done it differently, right Henry? :roll1:
