Daily Bullets

Daily Bullets (Christmas 2017)



Merry Christmas to all. I hope these few days are sweet for you, that we get some great holiday hoops and that your parents’ wifi password isn’t too difficult to figure out. Let’s get to an abbreviated version of the Bullets today.

Protesting Evans

The Houston Rockets are protesting their game because Jawun Evans was too good. Kidding. They’re actually protesting because Evans should have fouled out but didn’t, and it led to a Rockets loss.

Evans, on the other hand, had five fouls, meaning that this play should have disqualified him. The rookie point guard had played one of his best games as a pro, totaling 13 points and 5 assists up to that point while guarding Harden for much of the night, and it continued after the officiating error: Evans’ pesky full-court defense forced Harden into two (questionable but non-reviewable) offensive fouls at the 2:20 and 1:31 marks.

Spencer’s Struggle

A month to prepare can lead to coordinators trying to do too much, says Glenn Spencer. I know you guys have some fun responses to that queued up right now.

So he’s been fighting that balance in the lead-up to Thursday’s 4:15 p.m. kickoff against Virginia Tech in the Camping World Bowl in Orlando, Florida.

“You can’t get away from your base stuff and what you do good, so you have to fight that,” Spencer said. “During the season, you don’t have a lot of time to look at all the what-ifs. Sometimes that might be bad to look at the what-ifs, because all the sudden, you’re chasing ghosts. [NewsOK]

OSU And NCAA Notes

Ateman calls VT the best secondary they’ve faced … Berry’s Christmas stories are always worth a read … The questions start rolling in about Dez after a terrible Christmas Eve performance … Three Pokes in the first round? I’m dubious … More on Kasey Dunn’s crootin philosophy (they try to fill body types).

Fun pics here.

This is fabulous.

I laughed at this.
