Place to breakdown & discuss the catastrophe that was last night's game.
Official game stats here if you can stomach them http://www.statbroadcast.com/events/archived.php?id=426737
Losing Mady for half the first half, and Walker for big chunks of the second half, really hurt this team. I know Izzo autobenches first half players with two fouls which got Mady sent to the bench, but also he finished the game with two fouls. I really think Izzo needs to have a longer leash.
Shooting was atrocious, with Hauser chucking up bricks (3-12 overall, 2-6 from deep) Brooks (3-10 overall, 3-10 from deep), Akins (1-6 overall, 1-5 from deep including some that had no chance) and Hoggard (5-13 overall, 1-3 from deep) "leading" the way. Walker, Sissoko, Cooper & Kohler the only players to hit at least 50% of their attempts and that's telling - 3 of those 4 guys only take shots within 3 feet of the basket. We should have been feeding Sissoko in the post all night long, especially since he was the only one drawing fouls (took 8 of our 12 FTAs).
Ball control not great either, "only" 13 total turnovers but also only 16 assists. Sissoko & Walker looked like our best players on the floor last night, and also have the best stat lines.
Bottom line: we have zero depth and with Hall out & Akins still severely limited, every game will be a struggle. You CANNOT lose to Nerdwestern at home.
