BG visits Miami Thursday night...Miami Whammy?

DICKDICK Wealthy Alum
5:30 in Millett.  You can watch on ESPN3 with Steve Baker and Randy Hollowell or listen on the Miami Sports Network with Terry Bridge.  Miami is now 5-4 (2-2) while BG is 10-4 ( 6-2).  BG has lost 2 of their last 3 games, winning a big game at Buffalo but losing at home to both Ball State and Akron.

Bowling Green is led by Justin Turner ( 20.4ppg), who will probably move into second place on the all time BG scoring list tomorrow.  Turner put himself in the transfer portal last Spring but covid kept him from any recruiting visits and he ended up returning.  They also have Daequon Plowden, who is also an All MAC candidate averaging 12/9.  Trey Diggs and Kade Metheny also average in double digits and BG is a deep team with other scoring threats coming off the bench.

BG has to be a little shaky coming to Oxford though.  Historically and over the last two seasons, the Miami Whammy ( BG term) has destroyed many promising BG seasons.  Despite BG being at or near the top of the league the past two years, Miami has dominated them, winning 3 out of 4.  The one loss was by 2 points, while we dominated the other 3 games, winning by 13,14, and 18.  We played very hard and pretty well Tuesday in beating Ball State and got good contributions from 8 of the 9 guys who played. It will take the same kind of effort and performance to beat the Falcons.

    IMO, BG is a 3-headed monster of Turner, Plowden, and Diggs.  You have to be ok with Turner shooting 3s.  Plowden may be the toughest guard of the 3 because he can hurt you inside and outside.  Diggs, often forgotten, is the recipient of Turner assists.  Metheny is streaky, not on the same level as Frye.  Another big difference is while Swingle is big, he's not much of a rim protector, the opposite of BG's most recent big men.

    Offensively, work the ball around and make them play defense.  Beck needs touches inside.  While he'll give up inches to Swingle, maybe he can use his athleticism to have another good game around the basket.

    Eli getting the start over Beck, which of course makes perfect sense...
  • mz343mz343 Senior Barfly
    Confidence is a wonderful thing.  9-0 Miami 3 minutes into the game.  Timeout BG.

    Lol but then of course Eli nails a pair of jumpers. Miami up 9-0 on 4-5 shooting 3 minutes in.
  • DICKDICK Wealthy Alum
    9-2 Miami at the first media TO.
  • mz343mz343 Senior Barfly
    Under 16 timeout, 15:57 left, 9-2 Miami.  Doing a good job defensively of putting the ball in Swingle's hands as well as forcing Turner to shoot jumpers with his less than perfect form.
  • Re6H5wkRe6H5wk Wealthy Alum
    I don't recognize the guys in red & white.
  • Re6H5wkRe6H5wk Wealthy Alum
    In my wildest dreams, I could not have envisioned a better start. 21-4 MU at the U12.
  • DICKDICK Wealthy Alum
    21-4 Miami at the 12 and under TO.  Everybody playing good.

    Dalonte has been lighting up BG the past couple years. In trying to defend him, it looks like they've opened up opportunities for everyone else. Dalonte already has 4 assists at the U12.

    Under 12 timeout, 21-4 Miami.  We're moving the ball well, resulting in rhythm shots.  BG doesn't get their hands up on shots so we're getting clear looks.  The only guy for BG that's showed up so far is Plowden.  Turner's been very nonchalant in his play, very weak with the ball.  The officials are killing us on under the basket fouls.  We've been hit with 2 cheap calls on good box outs.

    Who is that basketball team in white?
  • Re6H5wkRe6H5wk Wealthy Alum
    Let's keep building this lead. BG won't stay cold all night.
  • Re6H5wkRe6H5wk Wealthy Alum
    BG in the bonus at the 9:28 mark.
  • mz343mz343 Senior Barfly
    25-15 Miami, 9:04 left.  BG's starting to get into the flow of the game a little bit.  Our bigs are in foul trouble.
  • DICKDICK Wealthy Alum
    25-15 Miami, TO Miami.  Bg has switched to a zone and a zone press and has started to hit shots.
  • Re6H5wkRe6H5wk Wealthy Alum
    Was Brown's foot on the line on his corner jumper? Gave him a 2, but it looked like of the officials signaled for a review. Bake keeps talking like it was a trey.
  • Re6H5wkRe6H5wk Wealthy Alum
    Back-to-back Miami TOs, and the lead is under 10.
  • Re6H5wkRe6H5wk Wealthy Alum
    Dae-Dae answers with a 4-point play!
  • mz343mz343 Senior Barfly
    Under 8 timeout, 29-17 Miami.  BG's gone zone and while we've hit a couple of shots, we're not attacking it very well.  There should be someone in the foul line area all the time and we're not doing that.  
  • Re6H5wkRe6H5wk Wealthy Alum
    Brown's foot was on the line. Then Grant does the same. Court awareness, guys.
  • Re6H5wkRe6H5wk Wealthy Alum
    When's the last time our opponent has missed a FT?
  • DICKDICK Wealthy Alum
    29-17 Miami as Dae Dae converts a 4 point play.  BG has gone from 4 to 17 in a hurry, they really can score.  BG is also in the bonus already.  We are picking up most of our fouls fighting for rebounding position against their bigger lineup.
  • DICKDICK Wealthy Alum
    Still up 12 at te under 4 TO..We are shooting 61% vs BG's 34
  • FraggleHawkFraggleHawk Senior Barfly
    MAC refs are beyond incompetent. No foul on a chop block.
  • Re6H5wkRe6H5wk Wealthy Alum
    9-point halftime lead is nice, but BG seems to have momentum. Think the break came at a good time.

    Great game so far. We just need to beat that zone defense.
  • mz343mz343 Senior Barfly
    It's hard to argue with how we played overall that half.  We need to keep moving the ball offensively.  The ball needs to get into the middle of the zone.  Defensively, BG's shooting as well I would've liked, which is poorly.  What's kept them in the game is the officiating.  12 fouls to 6 and BG is 8/12 from the line whereas we're 1/1.  If Beck can stay out of foul trouble, I think he can do some damage inside.

    54-43 Miami at the first media TO. Eli has 3 fouls.
