Bears At Midpoint

Posted: 2/8/2013 4:48 PM

Bears At Midpoint 


ESPN made a correct assessment of us:

The Bears have lost three straight games by an average of 4.3 points. They are 2-7 in games decided by single digits, mainly because they make horrible decisions and shoot ill-advised, forced shots at the end of close games. And often it's the wrong player taking those shots.

I would only add one more thing. Jackson is terrific - steals, assists, scoring, etc. However, his turnovers have really hurt. Last game was a nightmare. Until the Bears can consistently find a way to improve the turnover to assist ratio, it will be difficult to see us do much in postseason.

Good turnaround from the OSU game by Pierre and the Bears against TTech. Kudos. If we can find consistency like that with assist to turnover ratio things might begin looking up more. Gotta prove it though against stronger teams. And maybe we will learn that AJ is not a "go to guy" at the end of tight games. Gotta hold serve at home and steal some on the road somehow. WVU coming up. Can't take them lightly.

Jay, our forum is kind of dead, but not as bad as this one. Just came over to see if any discussion about the game Wednesday night and saw you were talking to yourself.

W V U will find out what kind of gum your players are chewing on defense. However, I would pick Baylor to win. You have two bigs better than our bigs. Also you have two outside shooters that are better than anyone we have.

Having said all that Huggins has the Mountaineers playing hard and I expect no different Wednesday. Plus, we owe you. The referee stole the game from us at the end of the last game. At the end of the game on a foul shot which was missed the Baylor player went up for the rebound,but the ball hit the rim again, our player grabbed it and put it in. The basket was overruled and he was caled for foul which never happened. Not that I am bitter, just that I remember.

The vast majority of the discussion on this board takes place on the premium side.

As for the game tonight, it's a must win for the Bears. Baylor fans are hoping the team plays like that, because it's true for their NCAA hopes.

Brischke, I didn't mean to be impolite, although I probably was. I know that Baylor fans have other sites they frequent and I am sure you do not expect fans from other schools to join your premium site, although I am sure the money would be welcome.

I am a premium member on th WVU site, Blue and Gold News. Too bad Scout sites don't offer reciprocity,but I can understand. Welcome to the unpaid WVU site where there is always plenty of conversation.

It's all good - and no I didn't mean to imply for you to join premium. I was just pointing out that the reason you see lots of people online but no one posting out here is because most of the members here stick in premium for whatever reason. Good, tough game last night. I'm sure we'll have our hands full at your place.

Nice to hear from you and I agree that it was a good game for maybe 30 minutes. Also game in Mgt. could still be competitive. I am a little concerned that Huggins may lose this team unless we have some success.

Baylor has more good basketball players and more experience in the backcourt.WVU did a really poor job of passing and handling the basketball last night.

We are still concerned about the type of officiating in the Big 12. My feeling is that the fouls that are called are fouls under one interpretation, but the blocking fouls( moving screens) that are being called we're not called the same way in the Big East. Huggins runs a motion offense and that means multiple screens. WVU is having a hard time adjusting and Huggins is really becoming frustrated.

The foul calls last night were absurd - some of the worst I've seen, and I realize Baylor was the main beneficiary there. But even so, Baylor had all of its bigs in foul trouble too. I just thought they called it too tight - my biggest gripe is when the refs become a story line. No one wants you to become a story line. The only good thing is they were consistent. They were clearly calling it tight, and some of the players on both teams had a hard time adjusting to that.

I would not say the calls were absurd, but I do think they call " bumps" too closely. Is this typical of the conference? It seems to be a recurring theme. I am somewhat surprised that Huggins, who spent a year in the league was not prepared for it. He may be telling his team 100 times a day. They don' t seem to take instruction real well.
