I'd like to see Carter and Freemantle get the ball in the box. Colby needs to hunt points this half
Carter has no touch. However free does and he is killing them down there.

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 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?
You made a point of including Carter in your claim about missed three when Carter had taken only one shot the whole half which was the same as Kyky with the same results. I like Kyky but then I don't have man-crushes as you do. I understand Carter rejected you but give it a break
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.

Carter's minutes have been curbed today, but he has played well defensively while in. When X has the lead, and Carter limits his shots to 4 feet and in, he is a plus. However, if he has to go to the line a lot, his value goes down, b/c his ft shooting is horrific.

These off balance three’s they are making are ridiculous

X needs another 3-D scorer on the court along with Scruggs, in place of Carter, especially with Johnson out.

Ref call on Jones was ludicrous He could see a foul on either player from where he was standing. Scruggs drives in and makes a shot while being hammered and no call.
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 Odom could shoot he would be dangerous
