3-11 from the three where is AH to take them to task for shooting 3-11... OH wait that is Nova.
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.

Marshall has to slow down. He should have 15 points. Blew a bunny against 6'2" Gillespie, and unnecessarily pushed off on a drive on another. Also, he took a step back corner three 5 seconds into the shot clock. Tremendous ability, low bball IQ. Goodin played another good half. They need to give KyKy more minutes. Four minute stretches won't cut it. They won't be able to match up with points without some threes. I like Freemantle, but he has missed 3 bunnies. I'd love to see a lineup with Marshall at the 4, and 3 guards.

Yea,

when a team shoots in the upper 30s from three point land, and has won 2 of the last 5 NCs with this model, I think they've earned the right. Mman, X was called for 6 more phantom fouls. That's the difference. The referee conspiracy continues.

2nd half we need Jones and Carter to contribute. Jones cannot pick up a third foul.

Stellar analysis as usual. Carter has given nothing. Time for KyKy for Carter, and go 3 guard. At some point, Steele is going to have play the guy he calls "the best shooter and scorer by far" more than 11 minutes a game.

As much as I want him to play better I think we have seen Carter’s ceiling. He is a complimentary player, he was in the MAC for a reason. A good piece but this league/competition is at a higher level than he is used to.

KyKY could do a little something besides shoot. His stats are just 2 misses, no assists, steals or even tos. I hope he gets some more time tonight Carter seems to be too tentative with the ball but nice to see his two blocks.

Agreed,

But they have no long range threat otherwise.
