Re: Basketball thread
And those 5 times he tried to play point guard and turned the ball over on a fast break opportunity.
And missed shots from within 3 feet of the goal. And I don't know how many offensive rebounds we had but it didn't look like many. I don't know what the deal is with him playing further out so many times, toward the top.

We were down about 12 the best I recall, when he went Magic Johnson on that fast break, so it's not like he cost us the game. But, yeah, that was freaking awful. Esp since we seemed to be going on a little run.

Re: Basketball thread
and don't get me started on the free throws.

I am sorry but I don't care who you are but anything less than 80% from the FT line is ridiculous!!!!

A&M 41 AU 38
I hate to say that I gave up and turned it off when we were 10 or 12 down with about 4 minutes to go but I did.

Also, I hate to break the news to some of you that we may not make the tourney this year but that is a distinct possibility.

I think that if we can ever solve our problem with getting the orange tinted round ball through the orange metal hoop, we will be in much better position to win more games.

I didn't read the stats but I think that I heard an announcer say we were 3 for twentysomething on 3's.  :facepalm:

Re: Basketball thread
I have watched a couple of the games on the color tv.  IMO our defense is terrible.  Not helping out, let people cut back door and just overall crap defense.

Yep. Our defense isn't nearly as crappy as our offense. But srsly, I've seen the D as one of our few bright spots. Not stellar but improved.

We mainly need shot makers.

Mason had a tremendous game including 8 boards and 5 steals.
He isn't so much a three point shooter but made 3 of 4.

We also took it to them on the drive and did well from the line 20-27, more chances than one would expect OTR.
Not many bench minutes logged but a game like this is encouraging.
Schizo has its good and bad days.
