We don’t belong in the top 25
While this tough to watch, still think X is a top 25 team.
I mean Nova is ranked #1 and is playing on their home court.
Top 25 teams don’t lose by 30 anywhere and not to an average Providence team.

No shame losing to the number one team on their floor. However, getting blitzed by 30 every time is downright embarrassing. X looked completely lost on both ends of the floor.

Oh Lord, please bring the walk-ons in CM!

Also like Marshall's play and effort in the 2H.
Maybe Tre needs to take off a couple of games and let Naji start.
And Kanter needs to play ahead of the Invisible Man.

I don't believe that.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

good take aways for this game...the play of Naji and Scruggs as freshman . We will need them now X needs to figure out how to get JP and Tre back on their game. tonight they are 6-21 with 2 minutes to play
The play of Scruggs? He's thrown it right to Nova at least THREE times tonight leading to layups.

This team is going nowhere fast. I hope I’m wrong but, they better hope they get a favorable matchup in the tourney or they lose in the first round.

Yeah I think kanter has earned a starting role.

Honestly I'd sit either gates or Tre since they're basically both 6'7 spot of shooters. Probably gates since Tre is a senior and the better player. Run with a bigger lineup and stop hoping that any of these guys develops more than one way of scoring.

To complete the embarrassment we play against their walk ones. Not a top 25 team

considering how he has played yes....he had two more TO's than JP and 3 more points and he played point.

For all of Mack’s accomplishments and they are many he cannot come within 20at Nova.
