Can Coach Bluder Please Teach Coach Fran How To Coach Rebounding?

Please!!! You want to see great rebounding and rebounding technique, take a look at the Iowa women, in particular Monika Czinano. They actually seek out a defender and put a behind on them and back them out. This is never seen with the guys.

I don't know whether to give Lisa the credit or one of her assistant's, but Lisa is the head of that ship. You do have to really give some credit to the assistant coaches at Iowa, such as coach Jensen as she's works directly with the Iowa post players. You can see how Iowa has been dominant with post play with positioning and quick moves making the defenders guess and chase. This has been years of success. So, I also assume she's had some influence on their rebounding technique and success.

Connor or Patrick ................. can you please have your dad watch some of the women's games pertaining to this!

Drop mic.

They are having, so far, an under-whelming year though. I don't watch them religiously like the men, but 7-4 is perplexing considering where they were at last year and projected this year. Close game with Nebraska in the 2nd half.

They are close to not being ranked.

They've had a weird year with gaps with games and postponements or cancellations of games. Not an excuse but could mess with any rhythm or momentum. They are a good team and a team that plays with good technique, though.

But again, this is a thread about how well they rebound and what the guys could learn from them.

I'm sick of the Iowa men giving up points and games due to lack of basic basketball technique and effort. Rebounding is coaching and player effort. Those should be a consistent every game.

Maybe somebody (player) could step up on the team if the coaches don't and promote playing and rebounding better. The coaches clearly don't give a shit because we have see this deficiency for years now and it continues.

Good point about the layoffs. I would be willing to bring in Dr. Tom as an assistant coach to teach rebounding.

When it gets right down to it rebounding is nothing more than EFFORT(!) It may take the least amount of skill than any other phase of the game and shouldn't take any more coaching than this:

See shot go up, assume it is not going in, most likely it will go off opposite side from whence it came (this one seems to be difficult for many players to figure out, may need to repeat it to them 2 or 3 times), block out and go get the SOB!

Too often the majority of the players float around and don't put any real effort into crashing the boards. Lots of players with good hops, there is NO EXCUSE. Lack of rebounding needs to greatly affect playing time.

Until Fran learns to ride his beat players and stop playing kids tgat shouldn’t see the court Iowa Men’s Basketball will always be mediocre!!!

*Connor isn’t a 16 min a game player.. haha!

*Jbo isn’t a 23.7 game player when he isn’t scoring ie.. Wisconsin example.

Rebraca isn’t a 20.3 mpg player!

Fran has 10 players averaging 11 mpg a game and that’s ridiculous especially Connor at 16..1 spreading his minutea out shorten his bench would bring enormous value to those bench players. Connor season averages 1.1ppg, 2 assist, 0.5 steals, 0.3 Turnovers and shoots 21.1% from the field. That’s a JOKE!!!!

Could sure use a Reggie Evans type player on this team.....

Even the Maryland game didn't feel like a win. It felt like a lucky escape. Because we have no chairman on the boards. So much of it is anticipation and effort. Assuming that shots will miss, like you say. Another way of saying that is start thinking rebound the moment the ball leaves the shooter's hand, not when it hits the rim. By then it's usually too late and someone else has reacted quicker.

Our toughest rebounders are a 6'4'' guard (Perkins), a 6'2'' guard (Ulis) and Keegan. Everyone else looks allergic to the ball, Patrick and Rebracca's efforts are not encouraging. If Big O doesn't come in to lock down the center position this year we might have to go to the freshman. I still think both Murray brothers need to be in the game for defense and rebounding and we just have to contend with Kris's growing pains.

Are you serious about rebounding with the women's team? They gave up 23 offensive rebounds to Nebraska yesterday. They may have good technique but they do not rebound well at all. The only reason Iowa won yesterday is because they shot around 60% for the game and Nebraska was around 40%.

The women are fun to watch but their Achilles heals are rebounds and turnovers.

Iowa players do the 4th grade youth thing. They just go straight in up to try and get it, then to just have the ball go over their heads. Shiny objects.

You increase your chance two-fold if you back a player out. 1) You give yourself more space to obtain the ball. 2) You kind of control the opposing player when they are on your behind.

But damn he's a great QB on the court though directing players, like Payton Manning!

That's what we keep hearing anyway.

I noticed the technique early in the game and posted the thread during the game. But still, I could noticeably see technique being done.

That's all ya got is a yawn. HuckFinn your smarter than that. The Iowa Men's BB team is much better than what we're going to get as a final season result all because of Fran and his stupidity loyalty to a couple players. If he puts that aside (which we know he won't) this Season will end in an ugly way!!

Rebounding and missed free throws are what's causing this. And those are 2 things that don't change overnight.

Dead last in rebounding, dead last in FT%

3rd in scoring, though...

It's no different than Iowa football, really. Until you can get all phases of the game clicking you aren't going to win against really good teams. And the Big Ten is full of really good basketball teams this year unfortunately.
