X about of 0-7 this half in threes. On cue, Scruggs takes a 25 footer. Steele is putting on a coaching morgue. Star of the game for Nova. 14 point turnaround in 14 minutes. I expect Steele to draw up a Hunter 30 footer out of the timeout.

Ref calls ticky-tack foul on Nate after they let so much bumping go. Be consistent ref that is all we ask.
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, who can't guard a lamppost, is in over Nunge, and gets cored on consecutively. Hunter is in over Jones. X down 4 , and Free and Scruggs throw up a 3 pt bricks, and forces up a 1 on 3. Steele too busy peeing down both sides of his leg.

we were killing them on rebounds but in the last 3 minutes, Nova has had a flurry. Nate is so cold the ball has ice on it.

Coulda, woulda, and shoulda They wasted a good opportunity. as good as they were from three in the first half they were worse in the second half and the lob to the big guy doesn't work when they double and triple him.

Down 8 with 50 seconds, Steele says don't foul, so they burn 15 seconds and score a lab. Microcosm of The New York Gauchos coach, Travis Steele. Took a very talented offensive team who scored 38 in the 1st, and engineered 20 pts. Of course when he calls no sets except for a lob which was stolen four times, and tells them to take 17 threes, WITH ZERO MAKES, that should tell you all you need to know. This is the only year X clearly has more talent than Nova, but when you have a 15 year old with his temps driving an AUDI, this is what happens.

Nova started abusing X on dribble drives and post ups, and Steele didn't change the defense ONCE. Hopefully, talent trumps coaching, because with this guy at the head, this team ain''t going nowhere.

0-14 from threes in the second half is they make 30% they win. As usual, the hyperbole AH is going nuts. Wondering if sky has covid tonight.
