Don't get me wrong, Thomas can fill it up and led the B1G in scoring, and Craft is a defensive stud and can come out of his shell offensively at any time. I know there are other HS AA types, but there are times where I look at the 5 guys on the floor wondering where the bucket is going to come from. Ravenel is servicable, and Amir is a turnover waiting to happen. But they play solid, solid team D, and figure out a way to put the ball in the bucket. I said early in the season this was an average Matta team (which is good overall, but not for his standards), would lose Friday or (maybe) Saturday in the B1G tourney, and be a 32 / Sweet 16 team at BEST. Now they're the hottest team in the best league in the country.
So I have to ask - given the losses of some great players after last season - is this Matta's best coaching job of his time here?
What say ye, bucknutters?
You can't handle the truth
I say its not even close. He got his team to win 8 straight and the B1G Championship. All this with his best player not playing all that well and no true big man playing worth a S@%#
Honestly I am at a loss wondering how the guy does it year after year.
As Izzo Said, Im ready to see some other teams and some running and shooting. B1G vs anyone else!
What a great run for Matta and the BUCKS!...CONGRATS!
BIG COY got outcoached by the BIG tournament's best coach.
north till ya smell it, west till ya step in it.
Yes, without a doubt it is. OSU is hottest team right now. This is Mattas best coaching job at OSU and also his best defensive team. They have been getting great position and rebounding well the past month. We just cant be in love with the 3 (other than Thomas), and need a fast paced game. We beat Sparty and Wisc at their own game but we are better when we are up and down the floor a lot.
I think his first year was his best. That team wasn't as talented as this one is. This team isn't far removed from its previous success last year.
