Basketball vs. Kentucky
Good grief this is frustrating to watch. We make layups and stop jacking 35 footers we win by double digits.

re: Basketball vs. Kentucky
We won't make the NCAAT continuing to play like this. The offensive strategy is non existent if we can't make 3s.

We have no post game and players like Ado and Holman have totally confused me.

Big game on Saturday that could be defining for Howlands tenure. A win and it still looks like a struggle to get over .500 in conference play.

A loss and you can almost feel the momentum burning away.

This program needed a win tonight. Instead we not only lost to a more talented team, we lost to a team that fought for the ball more than we did. Even Rick Ray teams had hustle....

re: Basketball vs. Kentucky
If this team consistently put out 80% of the effort a Rick Ray team put out for 40 minutes per night I think they would have a good chance to make a run at the Elite 8. Craig Sword, Gavin Ware, IJ Ready, Fred Thomas, Travis Daniels...not the most talented players but they busted their tails night in and night out.

Just think if Peters and the Weatherspoon brothers would attack the rim like Craig Sword did.

True. I’m getting flashbacks to stansbury ball :shudders:


Talented and will make the NCAAt by beating lesser teams but few marquee wins and never make past the round of 32 due to laziness.

That’s what this team feels like

You're 100% correct. Rick Ray could not recruit, but I'll give him the fact that his teams fought which is why they were able to get some upsets over Ole Miss. It's amazing to me that our team has just regressed and has no offensive philosophy if they can't make 3 pointers. Pretty much what we saw all of last year.

This team looks like they could be lost if they lose on Saturday. This is the 4th straight year we have underperformed. If we don't make the NCAAT after this year we have to move on.

Stansbury ball made the NCAAT minus the Sidney era that was pushed on him by the boosters. Howland ball doesn't even look like they will sniff the tournament....

Howland can't even do this.

re: Basketball vs. Kentucky
Are you the Kentucky fan that posted on SPS a few years back? Makes sense.

And who the frick brags about having the most SEC Tournament Titles? Of all the Kentucky things to do.

Y'all won by 4 against unranked Mississippi State when you were able to win by 21 two weeks ago. I wouldn't be bragging.
