Re: The Official 2018-19 AU Basketball Thread with Sweet 16 Aspirations!
If McLemore is hitting 3s, this team is extremely hard to beat.  If he, Brown, Harper and Okeke are hitting 3s it would be almost impossible to beat this team.
Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.

Agreed... but without Wiley that's all we have. 

We're talking a matter of inches' difference between him and Spencer,  McLemore and Okeke.   But it makes a world of difference.

Worse game I have seen us play. Sloppy Sloppy play. 19+ turnovers leading to 29+ points by LSU. Poor play all around. We looked like we were sleep walking after the quick start.

28 second chance points. Wiley played like 7 mins. We need him under the rim.

We should have won. Disappointing game.
Final LSU 83-78 AU

Way too many turnovers.  No inside presence except the few minutes Wiley was in.

Losing recipe.

Watching Purifoy play reminds me of a pickup game where you ask a guy walking by to join your team. He just looks lost. And then he tries to force the ball. It’s sad really.

Complete implosion. Off the rails. I'm over it. Already thinking about next season.

Down 3 at home with the ball.  The best we can do is Harper take a couple of dribbles across half court and launch a contested 30 footer.  Clank...rebound Ole Miss.  Then, while the crowd, the announcers and countless dozens watching at home are screaming "foul" at the top of their lungs, they let the Black Rebel Bears run off about 30 seconds, then foul one of the best FT shooters in the conference.  Game, set, match.

You guys ever thought about the fact that the guy who coined the term, "coined the term", coined the term?

I hate Vandy's gym.

Nice to get the win there and break the streak, but goddamn our offense is broken.

Ugly game. Had the pace of a bad women's game. I believe one of the horrible broadcast guys said we got our first assist with seven minutes left in the game. Officials were like two fans that lost a bet. Just hard to watch.
