    Oglesby bulks up and takes more perimeter shots

    Iowa’s Josh Oglesby bulks up and takes more perimeter shots | TheGazette

    Good to hear. From article:

    “I was looking at (Oglesby) in the weight room and me and Eric (May) have been up there, 80s and 90s (pounds) with dumbbells,” McCabe said. “(Oglesby is) right up there with us lifting 80-pound dumbbells. He’s getting bigger and stronger.”

    This off-season, Oglesby has responded in all venues. He wants to develop a quicker shot, similar to former teammate Matt Gatens.

    “Matt’s gone and he’d get his shot off so quick,” Oglesby said. “I watched clips of him and how fast he got his shot off, and I’m trying to do that more and more each day.

    “We had a team practice (Saturday), and we scrimmaged in the end. I even had coaches, (assistant coach Kirk) Speraw, come up to me afterward and saying, ‘You’re looking for your shot more,’ and he was happy about it.”

    Josh's lack of speed is what worries me on the defensive end.

    Not a big deal. Apparently you have never lifted weights.

    he is longer and quicker than gatens was at this point in his career. and matt became a good defender. jo has the tools to be a solid defender. quickness of shot and strength is what he needed to work on and it sounds like he has.

    Josh's D got progressively better as the season went on, he has learned to compensate for his lack of quickness on the defensive end. His footwork and positioning certainly improved.....

    I think it is a good sign that he is looking for his shot more. When he is on, he is dangerous. I still love when he dribbles into the middle and nails a fadeaway turnaround jump shot. Truly a thing of beauty.....

    So when Chris Babb shuts this joke down, how will Hawkeye fans react?

    his shot is smooth but he need to move away from defender or otherwise he will have many shots blocked

    That wasn't a problem last year. Josh isn't the quickest guy, but he is better with the ball than he gets credit for.

    With his length,and the way he fades(which I do not like) on his shot, he will not get many blocked out beyond the arc.

    I like the ball in his hands, he is surehanded and seldom turns the ball over Josh is a very good passer, one of the best on the team.

    That is sound advice, Atomic, very sound indeed.....

    Next season Josh will bodyslam with WildBull McCabe. The B1G will tremble with fear when the Hawks come to town.....

    Id be thrilled if Bab guarded Ogelsby and let Marble go off for 30.

    However Hoiberg probably isn't stupid enough to wast Bab on Ogelsby.

    I always knew we would return to being the bullies of the Big Ten. I just thought it would be in football.
