Page 6 of Final. The Cats were in control most of the game but have to play much better Sunday or Wichita will send the Cats home as they did them in 2014. Adver... 190 comments | 6410 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Only 30 teams in the country younger than NKU this season. The future is VERY bright... #NorseUp
    I'm excited.

    I'd love to see you run with Drew. You're wrong. Dude plays 32+ minutes a game, by my best guess and at an extremely high level.

    Sorry to have stepped on your feelings. Just saying Cap is first to acknowledge that taking the AAU mentality out and injecting the Team mentality in is his Job 1 annually. Monk's choice of shots is problematic and even when he was hitting them earlier it was predestined to germinate into what we are seeing.

    Agreed. At this point Monk doesn't have the physical strength to be a good defender or rebounder. He is a streaky scorer although inconsistent. I would have to think his NBA stock is dropping.

    You didn't hurt my feelings I can promise you that. But you're acting like this is a Malik Monk problem here. It's not. Getting players to buy into the team instead of the themselves is the first job of any coach at the division 1 level. That goes for Malik Monk, Drew McDonald, DeAaron Fox, and Carson Williams. They all played AAU at a very high level. I'm just tried of hearing the AAU excuse. Malik Monk is just off right now. You know who else is off right now? Steph Curry. But great shooters will figure it out. You better hope Malik starts taking and making those shots again because we aren't getting past UCLA without him.

    Monk doesn't have the physical strength to be a good defender or rebounder? Have you even watched him play the past month. The dude has been going after it on the defensive side of the court and pulling down rebounds.

    I would have 100% agreed with this statement if you made it 12 months ago. Today, I disagree completely. The career and program changing decision Drew made to completely change physically is obvious to every Norse fan. Fantastic year resulted. If Drew continues on his program, the next two years are going to be pretty exciting.

    If he doesn't get it together, we don't get past this Sunday.

    If this ever happened, it would literally be heaven on Earth for one poster. The after life would be a serious let down for him after that.

    In the words of Aaron Rodgers, everyone needs to R-E-L-A-X! No one is going to be inspired to play a 15 seed at 10:15 at night. Did they play well? No. Is that because they are no good or don't care? No. They will be ok. Everyone on that team knows they need to play better Sunday if they want to win. They will get back at it today and get ready for Wichita. I think the only thing that concerns me is Monk. He has to get it going. Even if his shot is not falling he has to start getting to the rim!!

    I think Malik Monk should be the least of everyone's concerns. His offense is concern No. 997 on the list.

    Good points. Everyone is acting like NKU played so great and almost pulled off the upset of the century. UK was just lethargic and still won by 9. If they play 9 more times, UK wins each by double digits.
