Worked all day missed game, first thing I noticed is free throws. Refs that bad? 35-2 no way is unbelievable


Ditto.

I don't like to blame the refs when we lose but this was a joke. Even the ESPN guys that Miles was clearly fouled on that play right before Huggins was ejected.

In the end this game boiled down to that old saying - You can't guard your opponent when they're at the foul line - and the refs didn't call that game the same way for both teams.

I don't think it's been the main problem in the games where we've struggled but for whatever reason this team does not run the 1-3-1 defense well and it has cost us towards the end of games. Glad to see us not turn to it on Monday night....hopefully we don't see it again this season.

Did Esa intentionally miss that 2nd foul shot? Looks like that was the call from Huggins.

Avoid bombing away from beyond the arc and go inside to Knoate...even if he's mugged he's a good FT shooter. Close this out and let's get out of this place.

Seems that the biggest improvement we've made since that skid has been on defense and that's a rising tide for this team.

I think Oklahoma only had 3 team fouls in the half.

A friend of mine thinks the team is worn out. Combine the three-hour practices with the energy needed for Press Virginia and the extended travel and it kinda makes sense.



That's probably the best hypothesis.

On a side note, I don't know how these kids manage it all. Combine 3 hour practices with game nights and all that goes along with that (travel, watching film, studying scouting reports, etc.) with the 12-15 credits they deal with as student-athletes and you're talking about a lot of responsibility for guys who are in their late teens/early twenties.

I don't buy the idea being pushed by the ESPN color guy that we were an overachieving team that got to being ranked #2 in the country - we were up by double digits against TT, TCU and Kansas and let those games slip away. An early overachieving team wouldn't have stood a chance against Texas Tech in their building or against Kansas even on our home floor.
This has less to do with overachieving during that run and more with something is just suddenly very wrong with this team. Even if we were overachieving we are good enough to give Iowa State a run for their money.
I don't know if this team has lost their confidence and that is snowballing or we are just going through a bad string of games or what but Huggins has his hands full trying to stop this.
I was listening to Sportsline after the TCU loss and they were talking about whether it was time to hit the panic button and they all agreed not quite yet. Well, it's time.

During the post Kentucky interview Huggs said; "there are some players on the team that I don't trust". I don't know who he is talking about but they may see reduced playing time. I also assume the not trusting refers to on court behavior' such as not being in the right place on defense or not moving on offense.


Huggins would have to elaborate, but I have a feeling it has more to do with individuals doing things that he has told them not to do. For example, Daxter Miles' 3-point shooting has been dreadful lately and Huggins noted, without mentioning his name, that he has a guy who keeps missing from beyond the arc yet keeps putting up shots. I have a feeling he told Miles to drive to the basket instead and Miles isn't paying attention.

Our half court offense is dreadful...and it only gets worse as we go deep on the bench. Anybody notice Routt take a 10 second break (uncovered) in the corner and never moved to the bucket until Carter screamed at him mid-dribble?

That summarizes our problems in the half court offense. All standing, no motion. It's like they don't know where to go when.


Yup. It was especially dreadful in the second half. It's as if during halftime Huggins drew up a bunch of really complex offensive sets that are impossible to remember and they end up paralyzed.

I take solace in the fact that we are outplaying teams in the first half. We need to figure out how to play an entire game.

Huggins is going to have to figure out how to get more points in the paint and avoid having the shot clock run down and watch us bombing away from beyond the arc.

I still think we have a very good team but I don't think we deserve a Top 10 ranking right now. We're too inconsistent and Top 10 teams find ways to win.

Just saying - Jevon Carter is one heck of a defensive player

Have we broke 10 yet this half?


I'm pretty sure we had 33 points at the half so we have 17 points in the second.

It's not over yet but we are going to have to find a way to start scoring some baskets and set up the press.
