Big game. I wonder if we play some zone tonight. Statistically Memphis is one of the worst 3 point shooting teams in the country.

Slow start and of course Memphis hits 3s

Some of our shots aren't even close to the rim.

This one is going to be ugly.

This is the worst defense we've played all season.


And we've played some awful defense.

All of Memphis' shots are within 5 feet - not looking good at all.

Looking pretty putrid right now, down 26-11.

Not a good game.

This is one of those "are we actually good?" games. Not good for the guys' confidence.

It's weird how much we've struggled defensively at times this season.

We have a shot-blocking presence down low. We have length and athleticism on the wings. Ray seems like a decent defender?

It's just odd.

It’s effort. Nobody is moving their feet and the next box out will be the first. Awful performance so far.

Sometimes it's hard to coach effort. Hopefully coaches can find something to motivate them on that end.

Coach Mike is a very good offensive coach. We won't take the next step until we are good on both ends of the floor, though.

Cornish gets a windy point for getting that loose ball

Down 19 at the half. Worst looking half we’ve played all season.

We are trying to make up the deficit all at once by jacking up 3 after 3. Cornish is the only one penetrating.

Memphis is terrible and we are down 19.

Which happens to be the most points scored in a half by Memphis all season.

We are good (as most teams) when we shoot very well. When we don’t, we aren’t good enough to keep up. Our defense, while much improved from last year, is still lacking, much of which is due to not having athletic big (enough) men.

Let’s go full court press and if we lose by 40 so be it.

Get Paul and Ona-Embo off the floor. Both of them look like they don’t care tonight.

Why hasn’t Daniels played in second half and where is Sehic? Move Morgan to the point and get those guys in. This is a headscratching performance and we haven’t made any adjustments.

I love MD but I don’t understand his moves tonight.

Nice run by getting it inside. We are best when we use our match up advantages and get it to the rim.

Awful call and then technical.

That is such and absolute doody call. Guy didn't take it square even if he was outside the restricted area (which he wasn't).

The officiating against us has been so terrible this year.
