That was fun.  46.6% from the field and just about errbody got some minutes.

Don't know why you futz around with Broome and Westry in that game when both could have sat and healed a bit.  I'm glad they got the chance to play and gel with the team, but that was unnecessary risk.

And 60% from the stripe is going to bite our asses eventually.

Overall the percentage turned out well. However, against a good team, that dry spell in the first half will kill us. Sure, our defense was smothering. But all it takes is a quick whistle ref to erase that.

And the three point shooting in the first half was dismal.

Donaldson is QUICK on defense. Still a frosh, but he's gonna be a good one. Zep hit a few good ones, but I am not sure exactly where he fits in this season.
I keep waiting for Jaylin to make his move to the next level. He may be just what he is. Not bad, but he could be a monster attacking the glass. I like Broome, but we will miss Kessler no doubt.
Same as last season, if we get a consistent 3 point shooter, this team could go places.
For the third game of the season, not a bad showing. Felt like a cat toying with a mouse.

So we rolled on Friday...not much to note.

Got two this week from Cancun (love Feast Week!): Bradley at 5 tomorrow and the winner of NW/Liberty on Wed.

Last night's UK/Zags game was a fun beatdown of the mildcats.  Zags held a double-digit lead most of the game, cats got within 4 at midway through the 2nd half, but couldn't get over the hump.  Love watching the squid guy lose.

Saw where Bradley lost their best player to concussion this last game, not making the trip. Also lost a starting guard to a broken wrist in the prior game.
Liberty has already been pounded by the Tahd several games back.

Yeah they beat Georgetown which was one of the weirdest teams to follow last season next to Penn State. The Cats have similar size, play good team defense and also struggle for offensive consistency. I do like our chances as well given we have a gaggle of guards to harrass the shit out ya.

The Fighting Pearls handled that business against Bradley.  Cruised to a 21 point win.  Could have been a good bit worse.  They get the 5-0 Mildcats of Northwestern, who snuffed out the Flames of Liberty.

Win or lose, they're in Cancun.

CLANG!!

Victory has a metallic taste but Auburn wins in Cancun before 1151 onlookers in a defensive struggle where depth according to comments from Coach Pearl was a difference in the outcome in a game that saw both teams combine for 26% shooting.

Tigers return to play St.Louis at home on Sunday.

I am in attendance today.  As usual, we can’t score but we’ve yet to meet a shot we don’t like.  Defense should pull us through.

I know Wen and KD are going to launch shots...but them driving to the basket and drawing fouls was money in the bank and I kept wondering why we'd get away from a successful strategy.

Also, does anyone know why Donaldson didn't play?

All in all, a great resume win and more time against a quality opponent in anticipation of the season's start.

Tiger's welcome Patriot League Colgate on Friday for a 7:00 pm tip.

The Red Raiders are currently 5-4 with a couple of surprising wins over larger names while also failing against some lesser knowns. They lost their opener in a squeaker to Buffalo, beat a roster challenged Syracuse rather handily while also dropping games to Duquesne and Delaware.
They did beat teams of their own ilk in Brown, Monmouth and Hartford so they can't be taken too lightly.

And that's probably far more than anyone here might ever say about our coming opponent Colgate.

Actually the worst toothpaste ever is the little known brand called RedGold, served as a condiment at participating Hamburger Heaven restaurants and sometimes found at competitive supermarkets.

As for Colgate basketball, the game I neglected to mention and more representative of it on the road was a hard fought loss at Penn.
Damn woke Quakers!

Fall behind to teams with near equal or better talent, get beat solidly on the boards and shoot poorly.
That gets you beat most of the time. 

Williams and Johnson were off the mark and our bench just isn't contributing. Traore and Westry played 20 minutes and collected one rebound between them.

Moore had one of his better games though Flanigan still not progressing as was anticipated.

Broome gives us a steady presence but the team must rely on Green's energy to carry it.
