Bad turnovers by supposed veterans early.

Withey was blocking shots like that in the first half against UK.

At least they are playing as bad as we are.

KC_Connection
11-21-2011, 11:24 PM
Is Elijah Johnson ever going to make a shot this season? He's capable of so much more.

TRob and Tyshawn are the team's only offense right now.

Silock
11-21-2011, 11:29 PM
WE ARE PLAYING SO BADLY.

Silock
11-21-2011, 11:30 PM
Finally Withey shows some strength.

Hate missing the front end of those 1 and 1's. It's like a turnover.

KC_Connection
11-21-2011, 11:42 PM
That's a foul, yeah.

Silock
11-21-2011, 11:43 PM
Well... could be going worse, considering how badly we're playing.

Silock
11-21-2011, 11:45 PM
I'm REALLY liking our fight and energy right now.

KC_Connection
11-21-2011, 11:45 PM
EJ is too good to be so lazy all the time. His passing, shooting, and speed combined are beyond any player on this team.

Kevin Young brings some energy, it seems. Wish he played last game.

Kevin Young hustled all the way on that play. Too bad about the foul.

KC_Connection
11-21-2011, 11:52 PM
Could have built on the lead...but shitty defense leads to a close game at the half.

KC_Connection
11-21-2011, 11:54 PM
Thompson is a career 45% 3PT shooter for GTown...might want to stop going under the screen.

KC_Connection
11-21-2011, 11:56 PM
Awful way to finish the half defensively. The lead should be much greater.

Silock
11-21-2011, 11:57 PM
Bah. Bad luck.

Mr_Tomahawk
11-21-2011, 11:58 PM
Both teams playing hard. It'll be interesting to see if both sides can keep this tempo up.

We are doing well offensively for the most part. Just need to address some schematic break downs on defense during the half.

KC_Connection
11-22-2011, 12:00 AM
Force somebody other than Thompson to beat you in the 2nd half...he's by far their best shooter.

ArrowheadHawk
11-22-2011, 12:01 AM
Need a better second half. Trob needs to go into beast mode. That would open up the perimeter.

Mr. Plow

Withey...why are you the way that you are?

Silock
11-22-2011, 12:18 AM
... What defense?

KC_Connection
11-22-2011, 12:19 AM
I guess nobody is capable of covering Thompson. Nevermind, then.

It's too early in the year to get a bad feeling. We are the better team, just not showing it. They're making circus shots.

There's no real difference between that, anyway, but I think this team is easily top 20 in the country.

Thanks for coming out, Withey. You scrub.

Edit: Though that was a BS foul.

Really don't need a stupid loose ball foul on the other end of the court at this stage of the game....giving our slight lead back.

Gah, that would have been a huge shot by Teahan.

KU's had about three chances to dagger Georgetown....wasted every single one of them and this is coming right down to the end.

#2. Fucking rebound. If that board is grabbed, this game is over.

Now it's up to our free throw shooting...

KC_Connection

Good win...should have been by more, but the defense was solid in the 2nd half. Tyshawn played great. Time to face the lardo Joshua Smith for the 2nd time.

Defense and turnovers are a major issue right now. We do not guard the 3 at all for the fear of a backdoor cut and we throw it away too much. This team lacks a consistent # 3 scorer. Thomas and Taylor does OK ,but Releford has not stepped up his game and Conner is too inconsistent.

I LOL when Bilas claimed that KU's D won this game. :eek:

Good thing time is on our side.

Reerun_KC

I'm not big on hyperbole, but that was without a doubt the worst call I've ever seen. It really was pretty incredible. That ref is a B12 ref too. So we get a full year of seeing him.

I probably wouldn't have been as pissed as I was if the game were pretty much decided at that point.

Withey literally didn't do anything. He was just standing there while the guy was lowering his shoulder into Jeff's chest. What a weird call.

KU's defense did play well. GT did well on screen drives and step back shots off the screen. But I did notice that KU played that step back screen much better in the 2nd half. I'm not too worried about KU's defense. Scoring is an issue. Releford, Tehan, and even Johnson have been inconsistent. And Withey needs to take it up strong and not be a sissy and get blocked by guys a foot shorter.

You're watching a team with only one player that's ever started consistently before at the NCAA level. That's probably it.

Decided? It was a 5 point game with 8 minutes left when he fouled out. I wasn't too upset, though, as he played horrible throughout. It's becoming a bit of a trend with him...he's not giving a good enough effort and he pussies out from any contact.

The Big East was built as a basketball conference, though.

The Big XII has 4 ranked teams, but two of them will be in the SEC next year.

Based on 2012 conferences, the Big XII has 2 teams, the SEC has 7 teams, the ACC has 5, the Big East has 3, the B1G has 3, and the PAC has 2.

I think you need to look at it by %. If the Big 12 gets 5 teams in the tourney next year, that is 50% of their schools. Which is damn good.

Also, Texas and Oklahoma are down this year but in the long term they will be back up to challenge Kansas here and there.
