Yeah, hopefully we see a DJ Wilson like improvement for Ibi, because he looked just about as lost as DJ did early on.

It's still on the backburner for me, but I love hearing little bits here and there.

I think he broke his own confidence early as well. He is supposed to be a solid shooter, but he kept missing open looks from three. Probably shook him a bit. Happens to young players.

The jacked up schedule at the end of the season is bullshit, but god damn, 2017 is loaded with some good hoops.

11/20 - 11/22 - Maui Invitational (LSU, ND/Chaminade, Marquette/VCU/Wichita St/Cal)
11/29 @ UNC
12/2 vs Indiana
12/4 @ OSU
12/9 vs UCLA
12/12 @ Texas

I hate that the shortest waiting period possible for March Madness is 11 days. The BTT championship is on 3/4/18 and the first round doesn't start until 3/15/18. Most of the tournament teams from the Big 10 will basically be waiting two weeks to play their first March Madness game. Delaney sucks.

I guess to a degree all teams are dealing with a long layoff, but that just seems like such a competitive disadvantage. But at least the execs are gettin paid!

I loathe these conference tournaments. They are redundant to the season. I know that many conferences have had them for decades, but they are another layer of competition that seems contrived to me.

The cater to what the NCAA and conference commissioners love most.


Not that I didn't love Michigan's BTT run last year.
