2 driving layups by Goodin to end the half
X up 7.
Goodin finished the half going 0-2 from 3 and 2-4 from 2.
And 2 assists and 0 TO's.
X only had 4 TO's.
CU cooled off from 3 and finished 6-17.
X has to keep the defensive pressure up in the 2H
The low t.o.s, and 10 rebound lead is why X is winning. Creighton went something like 2 for their last 10 treys. Defense is locking in again, fulfilling Steele's prophecy about this team. As Mman can attest, I never wavered from TS' contention that this would be a great defensive team.
And hope that Hankins doesn't become a spectator on the bench in the 2H

I like this version of KC and hope he stays
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.

When Q is in control and taking it strong he is a handful. Marshall looks gassed.

Harden with 2nd TO
And X has gone cold from the field.

Goodin, Scruggs and Marshall are a combined 1-13 from 3.
Got to get the ball into the post to Hankins
And let Castlin and Welage shoot 3's as they are 3-3 so far.

X is in the bonus with 11 left.
Have to make FT's down the stretch

Not Jones' day. Hankins needs to play until he's gassed.

X is standing around on the offensive.
Zero movement without the ball.

Coaching 101 - have to go with the hot hand and Hankins has the hot hand today

X's defense has been stellar this half.
Every shot is contested and there has been several clock shot violations on CU.
But X has got to start making some shots.
