I am still trying to figure out that Freemantle three shot. That was really the turning point
More like Hodge coming into the game. X couldn't stop him. But Free's shooting hasn't helped. Ball is like a greased pig for X.
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.

If I was Butler, I would foul Carter the rest of the way

wouldn't it be sweet if an X big man could hit two consecutive Free throws. Anyone see Kunkel block that layup?

Does Miles have Covid? Steele said this week he had the most "Xavier Way" practice points, by winning knock out two of for times, and wearing the funniest socks during Friday's practice. Said he would definitely play. Since he is wasting Griffin while Free and Carter flounder, why not give Miles a shot? He also will l eave Carter in to miss free throws, as he has been something like 7 of his last 20.

it is beyond ridiculous that Carter and Freemantle cannot make a free throw. How can you have any expectation of winning in this conference if you cannot hit free throws? Again, for the record, ridiculous!

3 weeks off and a win at Butler. I will take it. Thank you, Paul Scruggs

watching Big East games today and FTs were missed by a lot of big men but I agree the big men must improve or some of these wins will be losses against the better BE teams

Back in the 1960s Joe Geiger, a big man, had one of the top FT% in the country

Yes. Thank you Scruggzy. But, we should all be concerned about what happened to this team when he went to the bench after two very lousy foul calls in the second half. Nobody stepped up. The supporting cast did really well in first half when Scruggs was the clear floor leader and they were supporting. But, despite having some talented shooters and Odom working the point, when Scruggs went out, the team slipped into near panic mode. There was no leader at a time when we needed a leader. I'm reminding myself that they haven't played in three weeks and that's important. But where were Carter + Freemantle when Scruggs went out? Lost, along with the rest of the team.

They won but I'm still ticked off.
