Good, Bad and Ugly: Iowa

  • 02/04/2009 8:42 pm in

THE GOOD:

— Jeremiah Rivers’ plaid shirt.

— Devan Dumes. He was 8-of-9 for the night, including 5-of-5 from 3-point land. He scored 27 points. You can’t ask for a better night than that.

– Kyle Taber looking crafty around the rim on two consecutive possession in the second half with around five minutes to go. I repeat: Kyle Taber looking crafty around the rim on two consecutive possessions with about five minutes to go.

— Only 11 turnovers this evening.

— Closing out a game. Finally. That has been perhaps the most infuriating aspect of this season to date. It wasn’t pretty, but those final two steals helped, as Chubs would say, “ease the tension.”

WE WON!!!!

THE BAD AND UGLY:

— Free Throws. Horrible. Again. Tom. Pritchard. Dis. A. Ppeared. But. I. Don’t. Care. We. Won. YES.

    I am so sick of Pritchard getting called for all these fouls when the other teams big man does the same, if not worse. Man, he looks like a marked man.

    I don't understand these referees. I haven't seen a Big Ten game all year that wasn't in one teams favor. Come on, either get some young big ten refs or lessen the load that the current refs have to bear.

  • JohnSteinbeck

    Tom Pritchard was not allowed to breath without a foul being called on him.

  • That lay-up where Taber used the rim to shield off the defender was pretty. I was impressed.

    I guess that's what good coaching will do for you.

  • The obvious travel at the end of the game by Iowa had me stupefied to silence. My seven-year-old daughter turned to me and said, “that looked like a travel.”

    Yeah, it was ugly from the ref's point of view.
