    Haarms should have dropped him.

What happened last night. Completely out of character for him). So excited for the key contributors to get the chance to clap back at some of the gopherhole tools.
    I believe Pitino said in the presser that Matz was just playing better, so he went with him. Worked out last night but we will need both of them in top form Friday against Bruno.

    Key stat from last night was Edwards going 7 for 31 and 3 of 15! I guess he has the green light. Some sick defense to keep him off target like that. We gave up WAY to many offensive boards that kept Purdue in the game. Good thing Matz was a shot blocking machine.

    I think he handled it well.

    For senior night at 7pm against the number 11 team in the country when a win would be huge for your chances of making the tournament, the game should absolutely be sold out. Price the tickets right and and it will sell out easily.
    Price the tickets right! Upper deck way too expensive. They should not be as expensive as the Twolves

    Murphy needs to come out under control and avoid foul trouble. We need Mr. Double Double, Mr. All-Conference to be just that. We need Dupree to step up and hit some shots. And to disrupt the Purdue offensive flow.

    We need to win. We need to send these seniors off on a positive note. We need to make the NCAA tourney. We need to make The Barn rock one more time this year.

    Good bettors don’t bet with their heart. I’m a lousy bettor. Gophers win tonight.
    I’m an optimist. I’m usually wrong. This aged wel!

    Lots of offensive rebounds given up. However, Purdue took a ton of 3s. Longer rebounds on longer shots. And Purdue is really a nice team. Great effort by the lads. Stull was a rebounding machine and had a couple blockouts that let his teammates get the rebound easily.

    My least favorite part of the game.

    We are up 6 near the end. Purdue trying to score. We get a turnover. It's in Coffey's hands. He gets fouled!! Before heading down to the other end for free throws, Coffey turns to the student section and makes what looks to be a few motions indicating they need to rush the court after the buzzer goes off (pointed to them, then pointed in the direction of the court, then a "come here" motion).

    Then he proceeds to miss 3 of his next 4 free throws and BAM Purdue is down 2.

    I agree. No reason to "drop him" if something less violent does the job. Haarms overreacting would have been as foolish as what the student did.

    Edwards was of great help to the Gophers last night. The kid is good, but he doesn't seem like a real smart player. 31 shots when you are off, he needs to learn to give up the ball once in awhile. I think he helped the Gophers with this
    win as much as anybody. They did play good D on him though.

    5 seconds left in the game, our ball, and for the inbounds play we can run the baseline. Why don't we simply pack all four players in the corner, hand (yes, officially it needs to be a pass, but you get the idea) it to the surrounded player, and then hold it for 5 seconds? They can't foul the guy holding the ball (since they can't reach him), and any foul on the surrounding three players has to be a technical.

    Because they could have their guy stand between the person passing the ball in and our guy in the corner, making it impossible to do.

    In an inbounds situation like this I put the guards in the back court and had the three bigs build a wall at the free throw line, put one guard to the corner and had the other sprint through the wall to the far end (our basket). worked perfect with our guard being alone in the far court!

    Inbounds pass to streaking player hit the back of the basket because passer forgot to move and instead of an easy lay-up we turned it over!

    Lesson: Anything can happen on an inbounds pass.

    I'm not saying they line up that way before the ref hands Stull the ball. If they did that, then yes, the defender has the right to have that position. I'm saying do this after Stull gets the ball. If we can get to that formation, then the defender can't push their way into the scrum. If it works, game over and we win. If it doesn't, call time out and reset.

    A few crazy things that happened that I thought could/would lose the game for the Gophers.

    Up 12, we nearly get a steal for a wide open layup, the ball then bounces towards Cline and Stull nearly grabs it, Cline hits a 3 to cut the lead to 9.

    Coffey and McBrayer take turns missing shots at the rim. I believe 3 missed layups/open close shots in 4 possessions.

    Coffey missing a pair of FTs that would have put us up 7 (or 8)
