Gotta love an easy conference road win.

Wen is back on track, Flan is producing, JWill has finally decided to step up and be HIM....and how about the Mountain Brook Assassin, Lior Berman???

Our honky can ball.

Read an interesting stat about that (now defunct) streak of Gonzaga's.  In 75 games, they played 2 ranked teams.

Pfffft....  Santa Clara and Pepperdine may not be ranked, but they are nothing to be trifled with.

THIS!^^. all of it...inject it straight into my veins Weskie.

I think a LOT of teams would have a 75 game winning streak with the schedule those asshats played. Not to sound like an SEC honk but there is no way in hell the Zags even hit 30 with a typical SEC schedule. This is a strong deep conference now in roundball.

Got A&M tonight at home.

They're an odd team.  Some headscratching OOC losses, but 5-1 in conference, beating: UF (x2), Mizzou, SoCar, and LSU.    Lost by 9 to UK in Rupp, but no shame in that, really.

Hopefully we get more of what we saw Saturday (and the last 4 outings) and keep that streak alive.

Late game for us EST folks tonight. But I will watch whenever Lourde Bruce sees fit for us to play!

we are going to keep having issues with teams with bigger more physical guards, and a coach that knows how to utilize them (Mike White, Buzz W, NIT Oates). Bruce has managed to adjust against teams where the guards are equal or lesser. We are a good but not great team. And I think for this year that is fine. Hopefully Westry makes a leap next year and Holloway can contribute next year. We cant put guards out there under 6 ft that cant shoot or drive. Harper and Brown were such exceptions in 2019. Bruce even eluded to this in the post presser, that our guards were smothered by Aggie's physical guards.

The pressure that they put on them was incredible. Smothered is right and it worked.

I thought we showed a little spark in the second half but simply not enough to amount to enough offense.

We had the longest home steak for a minute or two.

I wonder if Hew Freeze can coach basketball. We have to make a change.

Yes Freeze can stretch our guards and bulk them up with his new strength program. Should be good to go by SEC Tourney.

Their defense was strong, but that anomalous 3 point sitting in the first half was the difference in this game.  They couldn't miss.

Gave up 45 in the first half alone. 49 is what we gave up to LSU in BR the whole game....yikes.


And when you only score 60's, you won't win most games against good teams. I don't want to see Radford again.

aTm had their scoring shorts on. They were hot as hell from the three the first half. Even with that, we held in there for a while. Again, it comes down to not having a three point shooter. Match just a few of those shots in the first half and you change the flow of the game. However, if you can't even put the ball in the basket and they continue to close their eyes and make every shot... At one point it was ridiculous at the shots they were making. Many of those defended well.
At some point it becomes unrecoverable. Tiny guards that cannot avoid a trap(of course the teammates were standing around watching also) and cannot hit a 3 are not gonna win you anything.
And I am sick of seeing JWILL standing around outside the arc. Get in the damn paint and ball! I would like to see him go mad like KD in the paint.

I guess what I am saying is, it was a shitty game by all.

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.

Too many turnovers from Green - always at critical times.  Get back to single digits with a chance to make a run?  Turnover, Green.  And if it wasn't him sending it back, it was Flan throwing up a three-point miss. 

Far more than the margin of victory were scored on transitions after a TO or a three-point clank. 

That said?  Shit happens.  It's basketball.
