Soooooo aggravating to watch this team. Quickness and speed will be the death of this team this year. This team better figure it out before league play. Until the time they do I just can't watch, too maddening.

Looks like ASU is going to drop a c note on X.
Wonder when the last time that happened?

I expect to see the press with a minute to go, and down 22. Tony Bennett he ain't.

This team needed a swagger check honestly. All the talk of final four and march aspirations for a 14 loss team from last year with ed sumner who was their only athlete.

They just got run off the floor by a team with two good players who are 6 feet tall.

We're slow, we're not athletic, we are careless with the ball. WE should be playing hard and laying out and putting it on the line. Not facing the 6th team in the PAC-12 and getting beat up by short crappy players while we pretend to have swag.

I'm done with this team and this season. Yes already. No way they make the Final Four or even the tourney playing defense and getting blown out by an Unrakned team. Just a sign of things to come in my opinion. I'm out.

ASU fans chanting "over rated"
The way X played tonight, I would have to agree.
Doesn't get any easier with Baylor and UC up next

Agree. Too many TO's game after game
Tre is a great player but he is not quick.
Overall team (or lack of) speed got exposed tonight

Turn that frown, upside down. This is a very talented team, and they will recover. I would be in favor of coaches not being able to make in-game adjustments though, for no particular reason. In all seriousness, great learning opportunity for the coaches. X was outscored by about 30 points in the last 25 minutes or so. I didn't think that was possible even if we only played with three players unless the opponent was Florida or Wichita ST, and not the juggernaut of the Pac 12 ASU.

Typical Mack team, turnovers, wild shots and absolutely no way to hold on to a lead. Defensive skills are worthless. As for Bluet being an NBA prospect, no way. He is not athletic enough to be able to get his shots off(he does have shooting skills, but he would be helpless against the defensive players at this higher level much less against strong college players. They will mauled in the Big East, don't believe they will be able to handle Creighton, Providence, much less Villanova and Seton Hall.

Scruggs looks as though he is lost at the "point." I know he is a freshman, but he consistently is out of position and throws the ball away.

Another hapless season which will probably result in reaching the NCAA. Last year I didn't believe they would even make the tournament, go figure.

THEY ALWAYS SEEM TO SQUANDER LEADS AND THIS WILL DESTROY THEM IN THE BIG EAST!

My three neighbors, two from Villanova and one from Seton Hall will give heck!
