More TAFKATBTW. Would an up-tempo coach have a recruiting/competitive advantage in the Big Ten. Is Tom Izzo an up-tempo coach?
- Tom Izzo: I’m stressing offense, ‘believe it or not’
But we’re #1 in the league in offensive efficiency! Makes more sense when you consider that our current efficiency figure is based almost entirely on offensive rebounding.
- The lowdown on the NBA’s top prospects, Illini make the AP ballot
Anonymous scout on Raymar Morgan’s draft prospects: “He doesn’t play hard enough for me. I don’t know if they would admit it, but they coach him differently than they’ve coached other guys. He has a three body, but he’s not a high-level rebounder, and he can’t shoot a college three. So where does he play for us?” Agree on 3-point shooting; disagree on rebounding; effort has improved this year. Odds of going pro early are near zero, barring a Marcus Taylor-like decision making process.
