Gave up a lead which this team does all too often, but, I thought Odom got fouled on both his attempts and Z for Creighton lowers his shoulder on every drive. All in all better play, let’s see how the half plays out.

Odom,

X's worst 3 point shooter chucks up two threes, and two other poor shots. What would happen if Kyky. one of X's best scorers took four bad ones?
you would be pissing about Kyky
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.

Free playing better D. Kunkel needs to be put on a very short leash along with Carter when shooting treys. Should count as a turnover when they do.

I guess the half-time score 33-31 is better than most thought it might be. Scruggs and Freemantle need help from other players. Colby Jones seems quiet. Maybe more Wilcher and Griff minutes in the second half. Creighton will be trying to blister the basket in the second half early so X needs to come out hot

Minimizing turnovers and allowing only two OFR is key to the lead. Still took too many threes (11). The probelm is four came from Carter, Odom (2), and Kunkel. Creighton will concede that all day long.

Carter took one shot, so did Kyky, and both missed

I'd like to see Carter and Freemantle get the ball in the box. Colby needs to hunt points this half

I think I'd take my chances with Kyky over Carter. You?????? I'll help you out here. One guy shoots twice as well from three than the other. Who do you think Creighton wants to see shoot the three, two, of at the free throw line between the two?
