    Posted this in the other thread, but Hachimura does not look like an NBA lottery pick at all. Too slow/unexplosive to be a wing player, and too short to be a post player at the next level.

    Also at Clarke/Hachimura getting bullied by Davide Morretti Rodman and Matt Mooney Wallace in the post all game

    Not to go full homer here but I think Tech beats these guys by ~15.

    Michy St has shown a propensity to turn the ball over which is right up Raider alley

    yeah idk what to think of Michigan State. part of me thinks we'll be fine, and the mono-suicidal part of me thinks that they do some things well that we are weak at or intentionally give up i.e. three point shooting and offensive rebounding. I thought Gonzaga would burn us on those two, but they were clearly rattled by the Texas Tech Ravens' defense whereas Michigan State seems like a much more mentally tough team.

    Who knows though, just talking out of my ass per par etc....haven't watched them that much. As the Beard says, it comes down to scoring more points than they do at the end of the day. I think the key matchup in this one, is whoever comes out with the higher point total wins the game

    "MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Chris Beard of Texas Tech wins Associated Press men's basketball coach of the year; team reached its first Final Four."

    Not to much of a surprise at this point but not any less impressively astounding either

    They are so fun to watch.

    Their switches are so perfectly timed, and then the long kid in the middle comes off his man at just the right moment to make a block. Itís beautifully controlled intensity. They play very hard on defense without going spastic, thatís very difficult for a college kids. And they have scouted their opponents and overplay them like they have practiced against them every day.

    All they have to do is makes some shots. The white guard brought game and when he went sour their best player, with great patience and selflessness then took over. No panic, or getting mad or retribution (Iím gonna show coach he should have played me more stuff)

    TT in the finals... pigs fly. And in this case, pigs deserve to fly.

    The coach really does believe his bench guys can contribute because he has taught them. That muscular center did not go for blocks, he moved his feet, hands, and was just terrific on rebounds. He knows what he can do. He does not try to fill in trying to replace a guy who has a gift for shot blocking thus leading to stupid fouls and getting out of position. He does his thing very well.

    Yeah their defense is insane. They basically just funnel you to the baseline and trap you, which gives you a horrible passing lane. If anybody happens to get into the middle of the court and drive the lane, there's already somebody waiting to take a charge. You can tell they scout the post players well too and know their tendencies. I know vs Gonzaga and Michigan State, whenever a guy caught it in the post, somebody was already creeping behind the guy's strong shoulder and soon as he made his move it was right into the teeth of a double team. Pretty much all of the easy buckets that teams are used to getting are all taken away by the defensive scheme Tech runs.

    It's crazy because it's not like Tech has all world talent. It's really just all Beard and that bad ass defensive assistant coach.

    This kind of basketball is absolutely wonderful to watch.
    I can see how TT might lose some games, but this current level is very difficult to beat because different guys are contributing offensively by making shots.
    They give themselves every chance in the world to win because the D is so efficient. Now they are not even fouling that much things are so well timed. And they showed they can adjust with subs on D. Offensively, One night its the Italian kid hitting, next the tough white kid, or the penetrating strong guard. And then they got the one legit pro level kid who can actually wait his turn. He trusts his teammates but he can bring them home like the last minute and a half hitting those shots.

    They wore Michigan St. down. Thats ridiculous. Michigan St. rarely gets beat in that type of game. Both teams got the games they are best at and Tech won.

    I could go on and on. They set very smart screens. If the angle does not work the screener does not force a foul turnover, screener just lets it go and they set up quickly again. No moving screens, sticking hips and legs out getting stupid fouls on offense in which they dont get a shot.

    yeah that's what I was most proud of. Michigan State basketball is the epitome of grind it out, toughness, blue collar, rough you up, etc. and Texas Tech bullied them right from the get-go. MSU played good defense in the first half, but it still seemed like Tech's shots were not that difficult to come by whereas MSU struggled just to get any kind of decent attempt
