Okay ... I will say it again .... COACH STEELE, NAJI MARSHALL CANNOT HANDLE THE BALL UP TOP AND THE END OF A HALF! HE IS A TURNOVER MACHINE!

There, I said it.

For a team that averages 14 TOs a game to have 13 in the first half is not a stat, you want to hear.
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.

KyKy and James do their job and looked good in doing it. Q 5 assists and only 1 TO which came late in the game. Perfect from the line but still cold for the field. 19TOs for the game but had 13 at the half so they took care of the ball better in the second half. Jones with another double-double. Take the W and move on.

Vegas has X an 8 point favorite which seems high. If X doesn't turn it over, hit their free throws, and limit their number of threes, they win: 74-69.
Vegas nails it, Ken Pom was spot on at 75-67 and your prediction on the final score was darn good.

An ugly battle, still a BE win, with James and Tandy making nice contributions.

Tandy shooting six 3’s is a problem. He shoots 28%. Need a better offensive scheme that doesnt require us to bomb from downtown all game. I think that part of his game can grow but those are low percentage tries (even on a night he lucked out at 4 of 6).

Bishop's departure might be a blessing in disguise, Players like James and KyKy see that you need to produce. James may turn out to be a Farr/Butler player who improves from year to year. He certainly can rebound which is why when he replaced Carter X changed the dynamic of the game. I hope we can expect contributions from them in the future.

I don’t mind Tandy shooting 3’a he is our best shooter Q on the other hand not soo much. Donnie James player better than Carter and earned more minutes. Naji cannot have eight turnovers and is not a Pg.
