Because Saunders started 03-idea! Alderson ain't good enough for this level! Smith, Marenka off the bench for 20 mins a piece, and no one else... That would be more help than we have now.

It's painful to watch Alderson out there on offense knowing damn well he's not a scoring threat whatsoever.

Yes! ZERO BENCH POINTS because there is no player development and Coach K just pointing his finger and placing blame and running the 5 starters into the ground

Just like he's done in the past, which failed him come tournament time.
Side note, I'm not buying the injuries excuse for this lackluster season. Luke, Marreon, & Willie should have been plenty enough to make this a special season. On offense, we live or die by the 3. There's no mid range game, no inside dominance by our 5th-yr big man. I don't get the philosophy of it.

Another side note
The opposing teams gaurds are scoring 25+ a game on us a night. Torching us with straight line drives every time! and who is playing defense on them? Usually one being Littleson? The one Coach K preaches is the #1 defensive guard in the MAC..??

well, Moore is the only guy left on the bench so not sure who the "anyone else" is. i'd also like to see more of moore, but i imagine if he was able to stay in front of good guards in practice he would be in the game.

my biggest issue is Luke kinda slumping. too many turnovers, not being able to handle the 1st half double teams until the staff adjusted at halftime. missing some big shots. getting outrebounded by lacey jones down the stretch really hurt.

sorry, I just gave up on trying and went off to do other things. I use Chrome which also allows me to toggle on the block ads. Didn't work. Not the first time that has happened. I don't get it.

RE: MBB vs NIU Game Thread
While you can’t fault their effort last night, you can fault the lack of execution in crunch time. After an 11-3 run by the Rockets to tie the game at 52-52 with just over 5 minutes to play, NIU answered with consecutive 3 pointers to take back control of the game. What I saw last night was one team, Northern Illinois led by one great player (Eugene German), make plays down the stretch both offensively and defensively to secure a victory. And I saw another team, Toledo, not make those same “winning” plays which has been a theme for the Rockets throughout this season. Now you can say the reason for last night’ close loss was the starters tiring at the end of the game because of lack of depth issues. But if you look at the box score, NIU led by German’s 36 minutes had 4 starters play over 30 minutes which was the same as Toledo. What I think was a major difference was Northern getting 10 points from their bench players and Toledo getting 0 points from Alderson, Smith and Marenka. That lack of scoring from your bench puts tremendous pressure on your starters, and if they don’t all hit their season scoring averages like M. Jackson last night, it reduces the margin of error you can have in a game to come away with a victory. If that “theme” continues, Toledo is going to struggle mightily to gain a 1st Round Home Tournament game come March!

RE: MBB vs NIU Game Thread
i am starting to feel this season is a lost season anyhow, and a 1st round home tournament game is useless. Any momentum from the buildup to the BGSU game and the large crowd is now gone. The program ( like the football program) has taken massive steps backwards.

Sad that programs like NIU with their paltry fan support in both sports continues to march past us.

There is the other frosh, Etherington, who now dresses, but I suspect K will do anything to keep from burning his red shirt and there’s the walk-on, Williams. You don’t play walk-one unless they’re Lennie Matuzek or Jay Shunnar .

Why are the numbers so low, with 13 scholarships allotted. And you have a walk on ?

Edu and Acunzo injured for the season.
Etherington redshirted.
Bizeau kicked off the team.

That is 4 scholarships that are not available for games

Donavan Moore remains on the bench.

Thus 5 of the 13 scholarships are not getting any playing time for UT.

I suspect that Etherington is redshirting because he is not ready to contribute (like T.J. Smith last year), not because we are expecting him to be all-league by his fifth year (like Luke Knapke).

Agree. My point is that he IS available on the bench whereas earlier in the year he was in street clothes.

Be ironic if this is the year the streak gets broke. Toledo goes 6-12 in league play then wins 4 straight games and goes to the tourney in the play in game in Dayton.

Sorry, had a few drinks tonight.

There aren’t enough drinks in the world. Has to be compounded with pre-existing mental health condition like Rocket psychosis.

Go in as the 8 seed. Play Miami at home in the first round. Then play the 4 seed BSU, then the 2 seed CMU, then the one seed BGSU... Win em all. Hmm.

If you’re the 8 seed you’re playing 1 seed in second round, not 4.

Maybe he means our only shot is a screw-up in the bracket. I tend to agree.
