Providence Game Thread

Postby longliveskip » Wed Mar 04, 2020 2:53 pm

Scruggs is OUT tonite. Not good at all.

Diallo is a game time decision as well.

either way, uphill battle. maybe Q steps up with more minutes.

Steele's cute three big lineup against a 4 guard Providence lineup has resulted in in isolations of Diallo on Jones (foul), and another guard on Carter (lab), and five t.o.s It was cute though.

Anyone else think Jones on Diallo is playing with fire?

Steele’s worst game. Naji on the PG and Jones on Diallo? Freemantle looks lost again. Q has regressed more than any player ever.

Nice adjustment going to zone and pressing, to change things up. His bizarre game plan handicapped them, but they are still in the game. They, and actually X, are both making shots at a rate they normally don't. Nice to get good minutes from James. Just hope Marshall doesn't pick up his third.

Duke, right by Carter again in this three big lineup. Tony Yates is even laughing at Steele.

X was down 6 last year at the half and won by double digits. If Providence stays this hot 50% from the three it will be hard but they started to cool at the end and if they can are cold, X has a chance. Keep shooting the FT and stay around 53% from the field.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

We continue to be the most non cerebral team in NCAA history. More Tandy less Q. Carter needs to lose the 90’s T-shirt under the jersey

Two good plays by Carter to start the second half. Naji picked up his third foul
