Game two of the two game series. Neither team went deep into the bench (MSU played seven, ISU played eight (one being Sissoko who rolled his ankle) and the heavy minutes went to six flags n each squad). How much fatigue will be seen, and what kind of adjustments as a result?

I’ll watch, but how quickly does this get turned off? Played hard yesterday so another 20+ point loss today?

Depends on the approach. Like yesterday, don‘t try to play transition game. Same goes for trying to play much man, but give them some different zone looks, they were getting better shots on baseline by end of game yesterday. They need to shoot FT like they did yesterday(71%) and out rebound MSU again today, I’d love to see some different offensive sets, but that hasn’t changed in 3 years.

Amazing what crisp/strong passes (MSU) deliver.

So far for the weekend, MSU is 30-50 from 2 pt range. We make it tough on the opposition 🙄

We should just try some man to man ... long term they need to learn anyhow. The zone never seems as effective on back to back days.

Only shooting 3 FT in a half means the Birds aren’t getting to the basket.

FWIW, Drake says goodbye to the top 25 by getting pounded by Valpo.

Abdou had a decent rotation defensively to start the first half. Makes a world of difference with an active person in the middle .

That's a shame. It would have been nice to get 2 into the Tourney, just for the financial aspect for the conference.
I think Drake will get a little wiggle room; unfortunately, they may have spent all of it on that game. Losses to anyone else other than LU, in this day and age, will not be good.
