I hope our basketball team turned a corner last night
First time I’ve seen us play to our potential. Unselfish, moved the ball and fed it to Nick and Perry. Played amazing defense.

We will turn the season around if we keep playing like that

I hope that to be the case, and not that Mz. is that bad.

It is obvious that Perry and Weatherspoon are going to be the leaders on this team if they are to succeed then someone else needing to step up to the plate each night to give a big assist - Carter and Woodward being the one's the most obvious.

As I've said from the beginning, less three shooting and more paint scoring. Defense is good but can't win on that alone.

Man, how nice was it to see us only attempt 13 three point shots? We've gotta keep the number around there, and try to get the ball down low more often. Last night was the type of offense I want to see the rest of the season.

Exactly what we need to make a run. Our NET moved up 7 spots to 73 with the win and we have games vs Georgia (53) and Arkansas (23) coming up that could really boost us up with wins. Which is what we need right now.

We still have difficult road games at Florida, Kentucky, Arkansas, and Oklahoma in addition.

Missouri just came off of a domination of Florida and they aren't a slouch of a team. Very similar to Alabama imo so we obviously made some big time adjustments. And it's good to see because this team is made to win.

We were able to force more turnovers than we committed as well. That has killed us in a ton of games. Would have loved to have seen us commit less turnovers cause 15 is still high. But forcing 19 turnovers still is a nice improvement from the 8 LSU had. And 15 is still less than the 18 we had vs LSU too.

Perry has stepped up to his leading roll with a vengence over the last two games. Nick is leading out front, though I wish he would drive a bit more. Also beginning to see what Howland likes in Stewart as his play is starting to unfold as a good and aggressive player. Ark., got too many paint points however for my liking. On another point, can Ado wear gloves? Butter fingers he is.

Now, let's win on the road.

3 of the next 4 games are really tough.

At Oklahoma
At Florida
Tennessee
At Kentucky

Tommorow is big. Vegas opens us up as a 1 point favorite so our chances are pretty good.

Going to be tough but I think this team is ready
