YSU Penguin Athletics / CSU vs NKU Horizon league championship
« on: March 07, 2023, 04:26:21 PM »
I'm going with CSU and would not be surprised if NKU  wins (sound like a politician ).   CSU seems to be playing their best basketball late in the season and guys like Tae Williams and Drew Lowder are reallying playing at a higher level than earlier.    Chris Brandon of NKU played fantastic last night but I'm thinking CSU's Deante Johnson can match up well with him.

Enaruna of CSU and NKU's Warrick will get their points but Coach Horn of NKU has shown that he can really game plan.
Got of give coach Robinson of CSU a lot of credit for putting this team together after coach Gates left and took his best two players to Mizzou.  Robinson had an easier time than coach C did since 6 years ago players couldn't transfer in right away.    I know a lot of you don't really care since YSU lost but I would like to see a Horizon league team do something in the NCAA tournament.

They said that was the largest since 2013.  Many times over the years on this message board I have said  back in the 70s there were games that had at least 6000.  Well I think I was wrong since I checked the vindy archives and saw the 1976 win against Pitt had only 5200 and the 1977 d2 NCAA game vs Randolph Macon only had 4k.

I was a teenager then and the eye test looked packed but it was neat looking back at the old Vindicator articles.

YSU Penguin Athletics / Wright State Men's Basketball

The Penguins need to play better D than last time at Dayton.   Wright State two bigs were getting easy shots at the rim and Green & Nelson need to push them out deeper or do more fronting.  Guards can help too by swiping down.
Last time we played them Trey Calvin came off the bench and seemed to be off his game.  If he gets going it could be a tough night.   Trey has a quick release and usually gets by his man so McBride will need to be at his best on D.

They had no answer for Cohill the last 10 minutes last time out and I'm sure they'll make an adjustment. I'm not sure they have a guy  on their roster one on one that can cover him so they might try a junk defense

YSU Penguin Athletics / Men's basketball vs IPFW

FT Wayne brought their A game and YSU did not.  Props to IPFW and their pt guard controlled the game for them.

Don't like Duane on the point and thought McBride should have played to move Duane over off the ball.  That's a lot of stress & energy to run the point when he's needed for his offensive out put.  Also,Brice would of been the best defender with his speed and strength on FW point guard.   Coach knows a lot more than I do so he must see something I don't.

Robert Morris comes to Beeghly on Thursday and hopefully our guys can protect the home floor.

I'm thinking the four transfers and Cohill will start.  McBride most likely to run the point.   A lot of talk about the chemistry but this will not only be a YSU problem since most programs  are experiencing turnover because of the portal.   Limit turnovers,win the 50-50 balls and win the rebounding is a good recipe for a road win.

I'm disappointed but wish him well.

YSU Penguin Athletics / YSU vs Morgan State
« on: March 16, 2022, 10:16:16 PM »
ugly win.   Outside of Cohill i'm not sure if anyone looked good.    Every time I think YSU is going to build on a double digit lead it never materializes(all season).   I watched Will Dunn at least 4 times come up to set a pick for Cohill and he never touched the defender.  I didn't know you're supposed to wiff on picks.

Really hate to be negative after winning a post season game but lucky Morgan State was 0-10 from three.

6-3 175 transfer from Fairleigh Dickinson.  Brandon is from Warrensville,Ohio.   Led FDU in scoring at 14 pts per game but shot only .394 from the field and.296 from three for a 4-22 team.

YSU Penguin Athletics / Any chance for a CIT game

YSU had an invite in both 2013 and 2014 under Slocum and Coach C had an invite in 2020 that was wiped out because of covid.   I'm thinking their might be a shot at another.
