Couldn't watch, but I understand that my concerted belief that we are nowhere near the 13th best team in the country was somewhat bolstered tonight?

A little role reversal tonight with them shooting 45% from the 3 and us shooting 29%.

Would it be possible to move the OC to enable people in A section to see (and show up)?

They need more from Egwu, period. They cannot go on giving up that many offensive rebounds from a team so much smaller than us.

Hopefully the guys were looking ahead to Gonzaga and we see a much different team than we saw tonight

Yippee!

We shot 29% and won. Good.

Let's hope Gonzaga is more fun.

You are never as good as you look in your best game or as bad as you look in your worst. That is true for both the team and individual players.

the side that is shown on tv (and is always empty lately) is not placed behind the OK... so no excuses.. they just flat out aren't coming to the games/giving their tickets to someone who would. pathetic.

Some people around here don't like it when you say that.

Funny, isn't it? I think we all agree that we're not top 13-worthy. I still don't know if they are a top-25 team, but they keep winning games. Finding a way to gut it out is the sign of a good team. They just have to keep doing it.

Yuck, yuck, yuck!

Only good thing is that we turned the ball over only 11 times against tough defensive pressure. Otherwise another game we probably should not have won.

Out rebounded again! Why no more of Henry in the second half? He was playing well.

MAKE SOME GOSH DARN FREE THROWS!
