62-57, Mizzou goes on a 13-2 run.

Paul did nothing in the last 7 minutes after coming back into the game,

DJ Richardson played one of the worst games I've ever seen him play, and he's had some stinkers.

The team competed the entire night though, so that's a positive.

I have a huge problem with valentine holding the Missouri player back against Abrams while play was live. It doesn't change the outcome more than likely, but that is not the refs job.

I blame this loss on Bruce Weber, I'm happy with our record to this point though, even with this loss...

now that other teams are aggressively guarding the 3 point line they have backed up wayyyy beyond the NBA 3 and only make them on rare occasion.
They do so much better when they fake the 3 from the college line and drive to the basket.

47 rebounds to 30 .... story of the game. However I like how hard this team played. Gonna be a good year and you can't win them all.

Of course it was but we are always going to lose that game. If the threes had fallen we would have gotten the win anyway.

BP looked tired or hurt after he came in...didn't want the ball.

JB should start over DJ.

Agreed

The shooting is a major concern though to me. Three straight games of really bad three point shooting. What's going on? Hopefully they pull it together and smack Auburn next Saturday.

Rebounding can be taught.

Proud of the fight in this team. Just learn to grab on to a few more balls and it is a different outcome. I don't get how so many over the back calls are missed.

that is the key....in this system once the teams overplay the 3 the mid range has to be exploited meaning the bigs in Groce's system have to hit 10-12 footers on the baseline and inside the elbow and be able to deck the ball and finish the roll to the rim

What happened to the zone? 8-32 from 3? What a joke. The refs were horrible imo. We have to bounce back from this.
