    The Wayne offense has rarely been a thing of beauty but when you have the personnel to guard Janssen one on one most of the time it stifles a lot of what they try to do. Riemersma, Dykman, and Tiedman all had successful stints yesterday. Jordan loves to deal or initiate from the elbow but the size of Augie makes that difficult. Obviously this was greatly assisted by Eagins having an off game after he hit several big shots in the game at Wayne.

    On the flip side I continue to have concerns about the sustainsustainability of Augie's offense given the volume of contested two pointers they attempt but they keep winning so I'll just continue to be pleasantly surprised.
    Agree completely that Augie is a particularly difficult matchup because of their frontcourt's ability to defend. Playing through Janssen has long been Wayne's strength as he is the rare dual threat dish or shoot post player, easily leading the team in assists last year. Problem is that it hasn't just been Augie stopping the WSC offense.

    We aren't cutting as well, and aren't finding open cutters. Part of that is that it seems that officials aren't allowing as much free movement off the ball as in the past (a lot of games have been of the "grab and hack" variety this year, though I wouldn't characterize the Augie game that way). Perusing the stats, last year's team averaged over 15 assists per game. This year we are under 10. Shooting percentages are down significantly as we are taking more difficult, self-created shots. I'm hopeful that this is fixable for a pretty experienced team, but I don't pretend to have the answers as to how to execute this.

        Just saw on Twitter than USF is looking for an opponent.

        The Friday, Jan. 7 Minot State at SMSU & Saturday, Jan. 8 Minot State at Sioux Falls men’s basketball games have been canceled due to COVID-19 protocols. These contests will not be made up.

            At least tag me if you’re going to mention me. Is every team completely vaccinated? Your specific post mentioned that UNVACCINATED individuals would need to go through testing, contact tracing, quarantine. My response was that if they were vaccinated they wouldn’t have to go through those additional measures.

            I won’t get into the science of why variants keep developing in our unvaccinated population and finding ways through the vaccine protection. Again, higher vaccine rates and we wouldn’t have as many variants but that’s a worldwide problem with many individuals not even having access to vaccines yet.

            • I have no authority and so this is just a simple request at most.

              Can you please take this to the Covid doomsday thread, or whatever it was called, located in the other topics? I looked awhile back and it was not only depressing but made me worried for the poster so I haven't been back and I don't know if it is still active

              It's been like two years, we all have our own opinions due to mindful soul searching, listening to left or right news or because you know someone who is a doctor, or knows one. I can't "tell" you where to post but certainly you could have wonderful banter about the topic in its own thread.

                Yea I was trying to hide this from you. It took you all of 5 seconds to find it. In case you haven’t noticed the nhl, nba and nfl (which are all 95 to 100 percent vaccinated) are having huge COVID problems. The highest vaccinated countries (see Israel, Gibraltar, etc) are having huge COVID issues. In addition, there are plenty of experts that predicted long ago that the leaky vaccines would lead to the variants (which is why you don’t mass vaccinate during a pandemic) and that it’s not the unvaccinated causing them. But I’m sure we will never agree so we can move on. History will show that pushing “vaccines” as the sole cure, rather than also pushing early treatments with hcq, ivermectin, etc, was a monumental mistake.

                  My grandmother was born in Gibraltar in the 1920s. Her father was a Tug master and that led to them spending a year in Hong Kong when she was eight. While there she contracted polio. If we are going to keep it going, just thought I'd add some ironically fitting tidbits. Also, never knew Gibraltar was considered a country until today. Now I'm going to go look at maps for the next hour, ha.

                    You are correct, it is not. It is a British overseas territory.

                          Thanks for this post. It shows me everything I need to know about your line of thinking and don't need to waste any more of my time with you in this discussion (which was my intention for the last four months or so until you brought it back up again).

                          Back to basketball for me.

                          • I am indifferent on the vaccines. I am vaccinated but I don't like mandates. I also don't listen to politicians so here is my two cents. I have a friend that is a Doctor of Pulmonology. He is currently practicing. He is also very conservative with his political beliefs. He works with Covid everyday. He says that vaccines don't keep you from getting Covid. Here is what got my attention. He says if you are vaccinated the worst thing that can happen to you is that you get sick and you spend two to five days in the hospital and with everything they have found out about Covid they can treat you and get you well pretty quick. However, he says that the unvaccinated get the sickest and that he has never seen a vaccinated person have to go on a ventilator. His belief is that the vaccine keeps you from getting as sick. So in summary, I listen to experts like doctors. I am back to basketball as well.

                              Tell your buddy to debate Dr. Peter McCullough. If he can win that debate I’m on board. Show me study where vaccines stop spread of COVID. They do not. Also, nobody wants to talk about the adverse effects from the vaccines. They are significant. Vaccinate 5 year olds that are at no risk? Agree on the mandates. If people get all the information and choose to get vaccines…. Got no problem with it. Take a look around globe. We are way past that line of thinking. Can’t work or go to grocery store unless vaccinated? Where does this type of thinking thinking end? I think most know? Trade your freedom for safety and you end up with neither in the end.
