default USF at Chiles, 2/5 5:00pm

Post by up7587 Sat Feb 05, 2022 10:08 am

Early game tonight, not sure why.  Also a double header with the women.  The game is broadcast on KRCW channel 703 on Comcast.

They are led by three seniors, with Jamaree Bouyea averaging 18 ppg, Yauhen Massalski at 14 ppg and Khalil Shabazz with almost 13 ppg.  They are 5-3 in conference, losing to GU, SMC and BYU.  But they are coming off a 14 point road win at BYU in the rematch.  Their guards are very quick, one of the best tandems in the league.  They shoot 44.6% of their shots from 3P range, averaging 35% on them.  Massalski at 6'9" 240# is their inside guy; he had a double double at BYU with 16 points and 13 rebounds.

The is the first of a back-to-back with USF, playing again on Monday Tuesday there.

USF is currently favored by 15, with an over/under of 142. Interesting the Vegasinsider site shows USF as the home team.

This is frustrating to watch. Pilots up by 4 at the under 12:00 timeout, but they should be up by 10 or 12. Multiple layups and other high percentage shots missed by UP. Can’t waste those easy opportunities.

Pleasantly surprised that we’ve still got the lead at halftime! Our defense and rebounding have been great, considering USF’s size advantage. Offense has had some nice stretches. Keep feeding the post to… Chris Austin?! USF will obviously make a defensive adjustment to stop that for the second half. Let’s see what Legans has up his sleeve to counter…

Can't believe Sjolund passed up that open three!! I was out of my chair, I thought for sure it was going in.

I think that's what you call a gut punch.

A treat to watch the Pilots toe-to-toe with a very, very good San Francisco team but the ending just plain hurts.

I could have handled a missed shot at the buzzer much better than a turnover. I fear that the rematch will not be pretty.

When I commented on the missed layups in the first half, I was assuming USF would ultimately take over the game and win it going away. Even more painful that a couple of those misses would have won the game for us. Fun to see an exciting game, and the Pilots looked like they belonged from start to finish. But at the end of the day, we lost yet another winnable game.

Tuesday will be telling, in terms of this team’s gumption.

If you didn't hear the radio post game, Coach said that their big guy was 10-12 on layups, and that never should have happened. He's a 50% career FT shooter, and the Pilots were supposed to put him on the line with fouls stopping his layup attempts. We'll see if they try that Tuesday.

Overall, a great game and so fun to watch us play a good team and actually have an opportunity to win at the end. Very very impressive for a first year coach and team. Love to listen to Legans. He just loves his players, believes in them, and is so confident about our potential.

It was a fun game tonight and a good effort by the boys. It was their most complete game I’ve watched since the PSU win. They FINALLY hit some shots. You could tell that USF was the more experienced team down the stretch. I heard one of the UP assistants say in an interview that UP ranks 350th of 358 in total experience in D1 basketball. Hopefully these guys learn some things from these games. It’d be nice to get some wins along the way too.
