Counterpoint: we were up 3 at the half with this rag tag roster. we were up ten against Notre Dame. We had providence beat. so this so-so bunch and their coach can play with anyone for 20 minutes. Why not 40? Why cant they stay organized and focused on the court? Why does their energy plummet after 20 minutes of rest, and why are they allowed to jack mediocre 3s with 18 seconds left on the shot clock? Why cant they sustain defensive effort like they showed in the first half of Notre Dame? If we had beaten providence, and held our halftime leads against MU and ND, we'd probably be a top 40 team right now. I posit that somehow we have the talent but we cannot organize it for 40 minutes. Why couldnt they do something to shake Hill free yesterday? Why couldnt anyone stop Donnal?
Lack of depth. It's fairly common to see deeper teams pull away in the second half.
