Missouri State game thread

Great start. Defense has been really good thru 7 minutes. It's night and day how good their offense looks when they look for the drive and low post options. They've only taken two treys from noted sharp shooter Goodin.

The least cerebral team of all time continues. How can you have all of these unforced turnovers vs a zone? Get the ball inside and the first thing we do is dribble? This is on Steele as well because the scouting report has not changed. Our best play once again was with W on bench. If Naji is not getting his he is non existent which is disturbing, but I’m sure Steele is happy with the defense. They are using the blueprint to how to beat X.

Great set up by Goodin, and smart play by Scruggs to take it into the lane.

How about denying the three and create a turnover. Not closing out

At least Goodin is shooting more threes. Damn! he made one. That means he'll shoot more. Four three point shots in first seven minutes this half.

Goodin clanks another 3. He has been Miss. State's best defensive play all night.

Dodged a bullet Got the ugly win
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.

I am definitely concerned about this year's team. I am concerned about not enough dribble driving on offense and not enough getting the ball inside on offense. I am very concerned about Steele's coaching too. And the new players have not shown a whole lot last year and this year IMO. I felt like we definitely underachieved last year, and I am seeing many of the same type of problems this year. I hope that it is just a slow start, but I do not think so. Very concerned about a lot of things.
