Jones is 2-7 from the line
I would foul him all day long and put him on the line
0-7 from 3
8 TO's and only 2 assists
Fortunate to be down only 9
Let's see what Steele and his staff come up with 2nd half adjustments.
Oh yea don't want to use the term "adjustments" and show ignorance
I for one don't understand why they can't work to get Welage some looks from 3 along with Scruggs
And frankly Castlin really provides nothing
I thought he might be a Malcom Bernard like player but hasn't provided much if anything offensively
I love Jone's effort, but if he can't make a free throw, to your point, I too would foul him on every shot, as X should have done with Happ when down by 10, but inexplicably did not.

Watching this I expected X to be down a lot more at half but TS's insertion of Hardin and KK helped stop the gushing of blood. D has been decent, free throws terrible and terrible 3 point shooting, (well let's just say something good of a 0-7 shooting...they could have taken more of them) Marquette is 6-17 and have only taken 31 total shots. Q, Castlin and Naji look like hands of stone but X has only 8 TOs. Surprising Marquette has only three players scoring and one has 14 from a player that averages 6.
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.

Q is not a PG, so let’s move on. If you can’t shoot you can’t win. Caislin and Kennedy don’t provide much

X is playing great D. Castin is a great kid, but would struggle to start when X played in the MCC. X has 26 points in 23 minutes, yet Welage can't find the floor. Has Goodin hit the rim or backboard on any of his shots yet?

I have to agree with Skyhops, you have to be able to shoot the ball. This team lacks shooters big time, I know I’m stating the obvious. Our d hasn’t been horrible but when you struggle to score like this group does every mistake is magnified tenfold. We all know it is going to be a long year, hoping for a brighter future.

If those Hauser kids are related to Artie Hauser ( he was from WI ), I'd sure like to know why Mack didn't offer them a spot at X.

wondering if he forgot his contacts or has he joined the bricklayers union. 2 points in 8 minutes tough to win games that way

When you only score 2 points in the 1st 8 min of the 2h it doesn't matter how good your defense is. Just not going to win many games doing that
Yes. Hoping for a brighter future

Goodin has played very little relative to his normal p.t. Kudos to Coach Steele for sending a message. Marshall is missing a lot of shots, but I have no problem with him missing downhill labs and short jumpers.

has X ever not scored a three point shot in a game since the line was created?
