Holy shit that last play was garbage in all aspects....
- First, it took way too long to develop trying to run Fredrick all the way from one corner to the other
- Wieskamp and Kreiner were both worthless. Supposed to screen for Fredrick and Wieskamp missed and laid down and then Kreiner set the worst screen possible and didn't touch the guy.
- None of it mattered as the play all the way was to lob it to Garza who is covered by King fucking Kong and had no shot of getting it off (even though he was hit twice)
Fran is usually an out of bounds genius, but that was fucking terrible.
I haven't seen the game yet but have seen the box score. We got a total of 10 points from CJ and Joe W? I'm amazed that we were even in the game at the end with those numbers. Were either of them injured during the game?
Almost looked like he was trying to pass it to himself it was so hard and his movement so natural to it. Got the looks. That was a really fun game. And yes, I’m that kind of fan.Connor got a good look. Put it up too hard, knew it and would've had the board for a great shot at a putback but it hung on the rim.
It wasn’t just bad screens, that guy guarding played his nuts off to stay with/make it hard to screen.For everyone saying run a play for a 3, we tried to run CJ off three screens for a corner/wing 3. Joe and Kriener set shitty screens or attempts. Second option was Luka on the roll.
If we get Frazier screened on either of the first two attempts, Cockburn is caught either chasing CJ for the 3 and freeing Luka on the roll or staying with Luka and giving CJ the 3 with Frazier way behind.
He had 3 screens set for CJ running toward the ball in that corner where the only helper could be Kofi.It looked to me like Fran was trying to run the out of bounds lob play and Illinois knew it.
As good as Fran is on out of bounds plays under the basket, that was one of his worst. If Kriener would have caught the ball where he was calling for it he would have banked the shot off the back of the backboard.
