Good defensive effort so far. Struggling to figure out the zone.

Probably one of the best games of Pippen's career. 25 pts on 10-21 shooting. 10 rebounds, 9 assists, and only 3 turnovers. Really played within himself today. That 9 assists is a new career high. He had three other games where he had 5 or more assists before this but in each of them he had as many or more turnovers than assists. Seemed like the game plan was to get Pippen the ball around the free throw line and let him distribute or shoot from there. With how effective his mid ranger jumper was today really makes you wonder why he shoots so many threes.

Liked the effort from Beck today as well, and loving Gio taking more threes. He played all 40 minutes.

That's been my issue w/Pippen for years. He's a very good elbow-short corner jump shooter. I can understand the infatuation w/3s as a young player, but he (should) know who he is by now. He should seldom take more than 4 3-pointers a game. My opinion. He's only exposing his shortcomings to the opposition and to any pro scouts taking a look at him.

I agree for sure. His biggest flaw has always been shot selection. After today's 1-8 he's down to 30.5% from three on the year. His lowest percentage since his freshman year. Gio is now tied with him for the team lead in threes made despite attempting WAY fewer. On top of this, Pippen is at 52.3% from inside the arc, the best season he's had in that regard. It's not hard to get the mid ranger jump shot, especially with his length and high release point, because it isn't as much of a focus of defenses in today's game.

You could say traditional still doesn't graduate. Pippen has seemed to take a lot of things from Jimmy Hall's game. Tenacity on the boards, playing with an attitude, habit of making big shots. He's also learned Jalyin Walker's shot selection and mentality to try shoot his way out of a slump.

If Pippens six of those 8 3-pointers are midrange jumpers (where he shoots 50% plus) he has a comfortable 30 points, maybe more if he goes to the line on a couple of those.

He's too smart not to see that he's hurting himself w/all those wasted threes.

So, in other words, the NIT is going back to what it was 50 years ago. Interesting.

Gotta make sure Kentucky has a place to go in case they win 8 games.

Agree, Fallsdog. You can bet the field will be the biggest 16 "name" teams that didn't qualify for the NCAA. I was in grade school but I can recall when the NIT was at least as prestigious as the NCAA. I'm too "young" to remember when a team could go to both, though. I do vividly remember when McGuire of Marquette declined an NCAA berth in 1970 and opted for the NIT, which they won. He claimed it was because he felt they were put in the wrong regional, but I always felt that it was really because he didn't think they could beat the loaded UCLA team, who eventually won the NCAA tournament The NCAA long ago changed the rules to make an NCAA appearance mandatory.

It’s hard to believe ESPN really cares if this tournament takes place this year. I guess they fill in the blanks during the NCAA. New York will probably allow 50 or so fans.

As far as Kentucky I hear they are going to the Las Vegas 16 (they only got 8 teams to accept the first year and cancelled in year 2j. That’s all they deserve. They can take the trophy back to Lexington.
