Post by up7587 Sat Nov 26, 2022 9:37 am

The Pilots complete their PKI experience with a match-up against the MSU Spartans and Coach Tom Izzo. The Spartans are 4-2, losing by one to the Zags on an aircraft carrier, beating Kentucky in OT, beating Villanova by 2, losing to Alabama in Rd 1 of the PKI, and beating Oregon by 4. They are a balanced team with four players averaging between 11 and 15 ppg. Their big guy is 6'9" 240# Mady Sissoko, a JR from Mali. Joey Hauser is a 6'9" SR F who is their best 3P shooter at 46%.

MSU is a strong rebounding team; they got 11 ORebs against Oregon. Pilots will need to work to minimize second chance points.

Let's hope Moses is good to go.

The Pilots have caught the attention of longtime Spartans coach Tom Izzo.

"They run their stuff so well and they should have beat (North) Carolina and then beat a team that we barely beat; beat 'em bad and we're dragging a little bit right now," he said in a radio interview.

Once again, MSU, like Villanova, is missing two key guys.  No mention of UP missing two key players, including its starting point guard. Rolling Eyes

There is no way the UP staff or players would make excuses, but there sure seems to be a lot of whining elsewhere...

They could just sorta copy us and just start chucking threes like that one game during the Porter era where both teams scored 100 points.

Michigan State wins on a missed shot at the buzzer and the 7 point Izzo foul rule. Can anybody point to another time that has happened?

Now I’m concerned about Izzo patting Tyler on the chest during the handshake and saying something like “ come play for us” .

default This One Hurts. Great Game Pilots.

Post by Snus Junction Sun Nov 27, 2022 7:35 pm

Losing happens but I wish the teams had decided the game.  Calling fouls is always somewhat subjective but during a 3 minute stretch in second half - with Pilot momentum - the game was taken over by one official. Even with that ball and chain, we had a chance. Love this team! Kudos all around with our bench giving up nothing and Coach substituting so we always have a great mix on the floor.
Love Gorisito and Applewhite’s game and Vucinich’s rebounding. Can’t forget Sjolund all around.  And all starters.
Played your hearts out guys and we love you for it!

What do YOU think?  Was TRob fouled on that final shot with seconds to go in the game?

Yes, but you can't let it come to a last second shot. The refs don't want to "decide the game" at the buzzer. Now deciding the game early in the 2nd half, they're OK with that.

I've heard this time and time again and so have the coaches who game plan during the closing seconds. If I were a coach I would certainly instruct my players to foul and prevent a basket at the buzzer, trusting that the refs would not make the call. So, in that scenario, aren't the refs dictating the coaching decisions and ultimately the outcome of the game?

I think the refs have a job to do, whether it changes the outcome of the game or not. In addition, reviews of fouls or non-fouls in the last two minutes of a game should be the norm.

Michigan State got 17 Second Chance points to the Pilots' 7. To me that is the biggest area the Pilots need to improve, limiting offensive rebounds and 2nd chance points. That 7-point possession included 2 second chance points.

We also need to get Mike Meadows back in the line-up as a 4th consistent double digit scorer. Jack Perry is doing good work, but he scored less than 6 ppg in this tournament as the starting PG. His 3P percentage is 39%, and he is not a threat to drive to the rim. 18 of his 20 shots this year are from 3P range.

Let's be fair here guys.  Tyler Robertson had a pretty clear shot to win the game. It just didn't go in the basket.

My take away is this team finally has some playable depth at the post and guard positions. After the Seattle game, it felt like they were destined to repeat last year’s script of playing 6 guys and wearing down against teams that had legitimate bigs. This weekend showed me that Applewhite and Gorosito are legitimate ballers. St. Pierre/Vucinic/Nduka is a post rotation that can hang with just about any team in the country. Hopefully Meadows comes back soon and then the boys will get another chance against a power 5 team when they play at Oregon on 12/17. This is going to be a fun year!

The ESPN guys also noted that one of our noticeable weaknesses was allowing Michigan State to score easily on out of bounds plays. I think they adjusted a bit in the second half, but probably something that should be still improved on.

Holy crap! When was the last time (if ever?) has this ever happened?

https://wccsports.com/news/2022/11/26/athlete-awards-ucu-wcc-mens-basketball-weekly-honors.aspx

SAN MATEO, Calif. – Portland swept the University Credit Union West Coast Conference Men’s Basketball weekly awards this week, with Tyler Robertson and Alden Applewhite taking home player- and freshman-of-the-week honors, respectively. The accolades are the first for the Pilots in 2022-23.

UCU WCC MEN'S BASKETBALL PLAYER OF THE WEEK – TYLER ROBERTSON, JR., G – PORTLAND
Tyler Robertson filled the stat sheet at the Phil Knight Invitational, averaging 14.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 8.0 assists in games against top-ranked North Carolina, Villanova and No. 12 Michigan State. In the Pilots’ tourney opener vs. UNC, Robertson scored all 13 of his points in the second half, while adding seven assists and two steals in an eight-point loss. The next day, the junior went off for 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting with seven boards and eight assists, leading Portland to an 83-71 win over 2022 Final Four participant Villanova. To end the invitational, Robertson enjoyed his highest scoring (16) and assist (9) totals over the three games, while matching his rebounding high (7) in a one-point defeat to the Spartans.

Also Nominated: Gideon George, BYU; Keli Leaupepe, LMU; Houston Mallette, Pepperdine; Brandin Podziemski, Santa Clara; Mitchell Saxen, Saint Mary’s; Khalil Shabazz, San Francisco; Drew Timme, Gonzaga; Jase Townsend, San Diego; Donovan Williams, Pacific.

UCU WCC MEN'S BASKETBALL FRESHMAN OF THE WEEK – ALDEN APPLEWHITE, FR., F – PORTLAND
Alden Applewhite enjoyed his best week of his young career against highly-touted opposition at the Phil Knight Invitational. The forward averaged 12.7 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals against No. 1 North Carolina, Villanova and No. 12 Michigan State. In Game 1 of the invitational, Applewhite scored 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting and added two assists in just 15 minutes. The next night vs. the Wildcats, Applewhite did all his scoring damage in the second half, logging eight points in a 12-point victory. Then in the finale against the Spartans, Applewhite poured in a career-high 16 points on 5-of-7 shooting, while hitting all five of his free-throw attempts to cap a perfect week at the charity stripe (14-14).

Also Nominated: Dallin Hall, BYU; Aidan Mahaney, Saint Mary’s; Chance Stephens, LMU.
