I prefer the term loose morals.

Release the Halon, Bryce Brown is on fire! He hit 4 straight threes to end the first half against the flyers of Dayton.
22 in the first half.
51-32 at half.

Got a bit lazy in the second half. Still a solid win. 82-72.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Was gonna make the trek with Mini to the Legacy Arena to see the Orange Pearls beat the fire blowers, but a back issue has him sans use of his right leg, so I guess we are out.
Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.

Does Purifoy come off the bench or does he replace Doughty?

I love the way this team is playing right now and I hate to disrupt that chemistry, but I don't know if I could justify leaving DJ on the bench for any appreciable amount of time.

Same here. What I would hope is about twelve to fourteen minutes and get acclimated slowly.
Could be a godsend if Purifoy were unselfish enough to fulfill a sixth man role as needed but that takes a special ego. Nah!
As you know we already have Brown capable of 30 but he could also just as easily go 4-20.
The problem is when you get two guys launching skuds at the same time. That's precisely when defense goes to shoot.

Good guys slay the dragons in OT, 75-71.
AU was cold as ice. UAB had great individual efforts.
Purifoy got 7 minutes first half and looked OK. But it was hard to judge with the whole team looking blah.
Harper hits like 13/14 free throws to basically win the game.

Bryce Brown did not hit a 3 pointer.
UAB hit like 30 of them in the second half.
Tigers still win.

Fire Bruce Pearl now.

Fire Bruce now.  It's a ground swell of support.  Tight game.  If u didn't watch.  UAB scored all their points down the stretch on pull it outcher ass 3's.  This team is good.  Not great by any stretch.  More than anything else, I love the way they play D.   
You guys ever thought about the fact that the guy who coined the term, "coined the term", coined the term?

When Bryce is on we are very good. This was just one of those games where he struggled but to his credit he fought his ass off on defense. 
Glad we had Harper to take it to the hole and get to the line. 

Just one of those games where the other team as you noted is making ridiculous shots and you have to find a way.
