I know nothing about Maryland. Maybe Ayala is still there.

Watching the pregame clips the team is putting out they may have forgotten to sell tickets to this game.

Surprising, considering how good of a job they’ve done ramping up excitement through the non-con schedule

It has to be something for the players to have no idea who is going to close games. At least Keegan played almost 40 which is the most important part.

Iowa Basketball is basically Big XII Football at this point. Some outstanding and exciting offense with horrendous coaching, some shitty talent on the field that shouldn't be playing and zero defense. You basically hope that your team has the ball last and the other team fucks up and doesn't score more than you.

RE: Sandfort - I don't he's quite ready for prime time. In the 3 p5 games before today he had 0, 1, and 0 points on 0-6 shooting.
It's especially disappointing because his with his shooting and his ability to take minutes away from the McCafferys at the 3 spot, he could be a big asset.

I really question some of the things that Fran does or calls in-games..... but that call to foul Ayala after JBo's FT miss turned out be a game-clincher.

Props to Fran on that one.

Fran decided to close the game out with Ulis after he didn’t play the prior 20ish minutes of the game.

Keegan is too good for this to be a NIT season
If Fran wants to tighten things up a bit, the combos are there. It doesn't need to be this hard... the combos are consistently inconsistent.

45 minutes
1-6 from the field
2 rebounds
2 assists
1 turnover
5 fouls
Missed 2 key free throws that could have given the game to the other team

Why in the FUCK are Connor and bohannon playing so much. It's maddening.

It has to be so frustrating to be Perkins and Ulis. No fucking idea what your role is besides the one line change at the 10 minutes mark of the 1st half and if that doesn't go well a couple minutes in you're back to the bench.

I don't think it is nepotism, managing rotations has always been Frans biggest flaw. Always liked conner but he just doesn't translate to this level and for me I was expecting to see him fade to the end of the bench and maybe eventually having this be his last season of cbb. So alarming to see him finish the game like that when he didn't even play particularly well at any point tonight.

That was a fun game. Much needed conference win. Keegan is a fucking stud. Joe T had a great second half.

Frans lineups.
