It doesn't matter who we recruit if they can't get off the bench playing behind program changing walk-ons. I can excuse the poor execution to a degree. Young, blah blah blah. But if we are full of freshman no walk on should ever play unless we are up by 40. Ever.We need to recruit intelligent players. 5 start means nothing to me. Recruit intelligence, and maybe we can win some games, and not look like a lost puppy.
I see tears as a team that cares. I see tears as team that's going to be keep battling to get over the hump. Remember, the majority of this roster was put together last spring/summer. The one player who was signed last fall dominate the majority of this game. The rest of the team has so much potential/promise, they just aren't there YET.BU said lots of tears in the locker room, whenever you have tears.....yikes.
THIS!!!!!!! 4 coaches, 4 teammates on the floor, 8 teammates on the bench and my family is the only people screaming to shoot it. Absolutely cannot happen.Why wasn't the whole damn bench yelling clock or shot or whatever? Watch the replay, it's like they were unaware also, which is beyond inexcusable.
look at the second to last possession (shot clock violation). Trent gave the ball up to kipper 20 ft from the basket on the baseline with about 7 on the shot clock!? Don't know they have done to him, but Trent would never give the ball up that late and he has done it time and again the last 3 games. Can't win without him.Wow, emotions control your post much.
Northwestern's last possession, whatever Collins drew up, completely broke down, took a wild 3, missed, got a loose rebound and made a shot.
Our last possession, whatever Underwood drew up, kids fumbled the ball, took a wild 3, missed, time expired.
The prior possession (shot clock violation), whatever Underwood drew up, defense forced it to break down, young team (Georgi) looses track of clock.
What these games typically come down to (nail biters) are kids making a play, very rarely does a coach truly influence a lot. They made the final play, we didn't.
Still wish we would see more of our Freshman, mistakes or not, we're losing regardless.
