healing great. Some of the complications are gone, but some remain. Ready for a win. X needs to play their best D of the year as CU scores on everyone, even in losses. BTW thanks for asking

Good start for the offense. Running and moving the ball. Like to see one of their big three get in foul trouble. It would be a good time for Ousmane to not pick up his two careless fouls. We need him to play 30 minutes . Great atmosphere.

Ciani is getting killed. He needs help from the guards. Claude is not keeping his man in front of him which is causing easy baskets.

Kalkbren is deadly on the pick and roll . Need to keep pressure on the ball and get in his way when he rolls to the basket.

He almost got the second foul on that face slap

As good as Claude has been on offense he has been equally bad on defense. who ever he covers blows right by him. Need to play harder on Kalbrenner.

As good as X looked in the first half of the half they looked bad or worse in the second half. Lead went away, and we now have to look at a second-half deficit to begin the half. X needs to solve the K pick and roll and needs ways to score the ball on their end. Laz and Nemo looked good together on D but need to be productive on the offense side.

Kalkbrener is taking over the game on offense and defense. Rough finish to the half. if we don't figure out how to stop Kalkbrenner on the pick and roll we don't stand much of a chance. I can't believe we are down by 9 at half with Alexander doing nothing. Maybe a zone but it's to easy for Kalkbrenner with us playing man to man.
