    In the house tonight against Keatt’s Wolfpack…

    Now… what I’m looking for is three things…

    1. What we bring early after 4 days rest…
    2. Who steps up on Offensive against a good pressing defensive team…
    3. Who shows up BIG in the paint for the PACK against another big in the paint team….

    Hicks out for the season…
    ABU not dressed out tonight…

    Keatts will choose to play small ball, by default…

    Tony Carr at guard at 6’5″ and 200lbs will be one to watch….
    GO PACK!

    POP!!!

    Oh good, State has zero points. The game hasn’t started yet. Oops…

    At the Under 16 in the first half…

    PSU – 1.5
    PACK – 0

    Luckie, Valentine and Gruber on the court in stripes at the PNC tonight…

    Well… that answers all my questions…

    Beverly at 6’0″ and light trying to guard Carr…

    I’m switching to Plan B.

    I want to see how Keatts and his PACK dig themselves out of this hole….

    Remember, points in the first half only count 1/2 as much as points in the second half…

    GO PACK!

    POP!!!

    Plan B: Wolfpack responds with a 14-7 run to get back in the game…

    Well… that didn’t take long, did it?

    GO PACK!

    OK… I see how Plan B works!

    Switching to Plan C: How Keatt’s kids do with a short bench in a horse race…

    GO PACK!

    OK!… let’s win this 4 minute period, get the 4 point basket and go in the locker room at the half with a lead!

    GO PACK!

    HALFTIME…

    Smoke if you got ’em…

    PSU – 1.5
    PACK – 2.0

    On the Big Board — PSU WOLFPACK

    Well… I got to say this…

    BOTH Offense and DEFENSE responded with a 37 – 19 run over 16 minutes to overcome the opening 11-0 deficit…

    NO PSU field goals the last 5 plus minutes of the half…

    It’s been a long time since I’ve seen that around here…

    Looking ahead to the second half…

    Nobody in foul trouble…
    More Horse Race…
    GO PACK!

    POP!!!

    Forgive me because I’m sure this has been asked and answered in another post, but what is the 1.0, 1.5 every 4 minute segment of the game? botb

    PACK – 2.5

    OK!… kids are just a little bit too happy — 6 fouls in 5 minutes!

    Settle down guys… you can’t finish the game, if you’re on the bench….

    GO PACK!

    Mav… don’t apologize for asking a good question…

    OK… old basketball coach taught me that…

    you break the game down into 4 minute segments…
    and then coach to win each one based on the circumstances…
    and don’t look at the scoreboard….

    if you win one more of those 4 minute games than your opponent…
    you should win the Big game…

    And the FOCUS really helps the Coach keep his wits about him, especially in BIG GAMES in hostile environments….

    This works about 95%++ of the time, if you score it correctly…

    On another level… it’s all about taking a big job and breaking it down into a bunch of little jobs…
    You take care of the little things and big thing takes care of itself….

    Back and forth… Back and forth… we go…

    Just get thru the dreaded 3rd quarter Dead Zone and cut out the fouls and we’ll be OK….

    Is it me or is Y7 snatching rebounds with authority this year? IMO he’s going at them stronger now.

    Yes Ply… Y7 is just starting to come into his own after being ‘just glad to be here’ or whatever… last season….

    Y7 with the full complement – dunk on a pick and roll, then a 3. Dude has nice form from deep. Then a foul 😛 Filling up the sheet in all categories.

    Keatt’s and kids don’t seem to be familiar with the dreaded 3rd quarter Dead Zone…
    which is refreshing as hell after twenty years…

    Up double digits with nothing but free throws to make to ice this one..

    That and cut out the fouls…

    GO PACK!
