Marshall got bailed on another out of control attempt. He is a mess offensively when he needs to make acute decisions...or any. And Goodin clanks another 3. Early makes, and the banked ones last week were fool's gold.

I did hear of some issues in the locker room as well as someone leaked that 3 players won’t be back next year. I have heard James and Hardin but not sure about third. Steele wants to start over with his players.

Isn't James his recruit?
Got to think Kennedy is gone as well.
Otherwise, why not play these guys instead of the grad transfers who are gone after this year.
I guess this year's freshman are X's version of one and done.

Hankins and Jones are 7-7 from the field but Goodin is 5-11.
Precisely what is wrong with this team.
The guys with the 2 worst shooting %'s - Goodin and Marshall - are 1st and 3rd in shot attempts this year. Marshall is 1st and Goodin is 3rd.

I guess Welage fouled out with 2 fouls. :roll:

Goodin would be 2nd if he didn't miss 4 games. Why the hell is Castlin in over Welage? No One is playing good D anyway, and they need points. Travis' rotations continue to baffle.

Well...Hankins misses shots in back to back possessions.
So much for feeding the post strategy. :roll:

We might not win another game this year.
That is a distinct possibility.

And Marshall and Goodin are 1 and 2 in shot attempts today.
Different day but the same old song.

Harden has gotten more minutes today but has not played well.
1-6

Jones, on the other hand, has had yet another decent game - at least offensively.
5-5 from the field.
