    2012-13 Big XII Thread

    KU is the obvious favorite, 2-8 is a tossup, TCU and TT suck. Here is my predicted standings.

    KU
    Baylor
    Texas
    OSU
    Iowa St.
    Kansas St.
    West Virginia
    Oklahoma
    TCU
    Texas Tech

    Ben McLemore is going to turn heads.

    Not a bad first game for us. First half sucked, Lucious was bad too but other than that, it was good. Ended up winning 82-59. Niang with 15 and 12 in his first game, Clyburn had 16 and 10 and Gibson had 17 and 10 as well.

    On to the next one!

    He sure is. I'm glad he's going to be one and done.

    We'll see. KU has a loaded class next year anyways.

    I always say...if you're up 3, you always foul with less than 8-9 seconds remaining in the game. Never allow a 3 point opportunity. At the very least, I'd rather give up a layup than a potential 3.

    Can't believe they didn't double team him in that situation.

    I don't know, I was fine with the strategy. It took an improbable fade away bank shot to tie the game. It just ****ing sucks, they were seconds away from the biggest win in college basketball all year.

    True. Say you foul with 8 seconds and they make the free throws.
    Up 1 with 8 seconds left. Get the ball in and 1 second comes off the clock.
    Chances are, you'll be in the bonus that late in the game. Make 1 out of 2 free throws. You're forcing the other team to go the entire length of the court in 7 seconds.

    It would require a miracle/lucky shot (much like what happened with the 3 pointer)
    I still think you foul. Oh well, easy to look back and say ' what if .'

    I understand that strategy, I think it's something you have to work on in practice though. You can screw up a lot of things trying to do something that you've never practiced before. It sucks that it happened but I'm not going to second guess Fred for not doing it.
