that bucket by JaKobe is what we thought we were gonna get all year. a 1 on 1 bucket getter along w the floor spacing ability. but he just hasn't been for us

Bears win the first 5 minutes, 10-7. Bears are 3-2 in the Big XII this year when they lead after 5 minutes

I love this 1-3-1 with Dennis and Nunn at the top and in the middle. they have such quick hands and can generate a lot of turnovers, which gets us in transition

As an alleged end Narcissist I said more than 2 months ago we should go zoneā€¦.Love to see it.

Crappy shooting by the Bears since the 15 minute mark. Hope Drew shakes them out of it during the media timeout.

The thing that continues to befuddle me is that our guards are not what I would necessarily say slow overall, but they have the slowest feet on D that I have seen on a Drew team for a long time. They are so easily beaten off the dribble by the first step. They definitely fair better in a zone as long as we don't run into a really good outside shooting team wiith good ball movement.

The Foster is the rare occasion that the cheap seats offer a better view than TV.

Yves Missi is such a pleasure to watch.

I want Ja'Kobe to drive the ball to the hoop more in transition. He's a pretty decent creator with the ball in his hands, and he can finish at the rim well. All too often, he will be leading the break and just pulls the ball out, and it slows our momentum.

I feel like we should be up by 10 in this one.

You guys can correct me but that looked to be partially because the pass was slightly behind Missi as he was too close to the basket. Threw off the natural momentum. Probably should have layed it off the backboard but difficult in that blip of a second.
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
YES!!!!!!! All year! I yell at my TV frequently because Ithink he gives up a lot of scoring opportunities. Just frosh mistakes though.
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Sure feels a lot better watching the opponent turn it over frequently.
DanaDane

Nunn is feeling it!!!!!
