now we're almost guaranteed to play a lot of zone in the second half with Forbes sitting on 3 fouls
It’s all we play.

They had a stretch with 5 or 6 turnovers in like 7 or 8 possessions. It’s why he have turnover edge. One of the weathers had 4 and Davis has 3.

Baker with 10 points on only 4 shots is pretty darn good.

SMU takes the lead with 2 open 3s. Please no more zone.

Cross forcing so much.

Cook can’t cover Davis. Needs to be a bigger guy on top of zone against him like Baker.

Effort is certainly there. Up 3 with them shooting at the 8 minute timeout.

This team is a solid all-around post player away from being a consistent winner.

Agreed. Imagine this team with Josh Davis or Anthony Reed.

Refs very inconsistent on what a foul is.

Up 1 at 4 minute timeout.

Or even a Carlin Hartman. A space eater, who is smart, and can get 10+ points a game and rebound well...maybe even get a few offensive boards each game.

Somebody like those two would really open up the court for our guards to get great looks at the basket.

I think Pope could be that if he would play consistently and gain some confidence.

We are 0-2 from three in the half. Clearly trying to get to the hoop but have forced a ton.

I thought so too, but that’s what you get from Cross. Among stretches of good play, there are times where he just looks out of control. At least two of his five fouls are on offense

This one hurts. Terrible shot selection down the stretch and this darn defense just allows teams to hit big shots.
