I think this game screams go junk defense like a triangle and 2 on Gray and Davis.

More competitive tonight. Keep this up and we will be a B.B. school.

We're gonna have to shoot it really well because Houston is going to get about 15 more possessions than us tonight due to rebounding.

I guess that is why we don’t play zone. Everybody was out of position.

That's a couple soft fouls the last couple of possessions.

We're a bad defensive team, and I guess bad defensive teams don't seem to get the benefit of the doubt on calls very often.

Offensive player creates contact they tend to get the call. I like Gray’s game. Frazier is only player we have that can guard him.

True. The last one our guy seemed to be backing away from the contact with his hands straight up, though.

That should have been a no-call, IMO.


Offense is picking up now!

SMU wins on the road at Wichita.

I think that's good for us as we head to SMU next. Might catch them on a let down.

We are a much better team when we don’t fall too in love with the 3.

The offensive against us was not a foul. we seem to be more aggressive on D tonight. That helps create pressure on them. We may not be a great D team, but we do play a better game in general when we are more aggressive on D.

Ya think? Review my basketball posts for the past half decade or so

I don't think we match up well with Wichita at all. Not that many teams in this league do.

I do think it shows that when we play well, we can play with almost anyone in this league, probably besides Wichita and Cincinnati. I think those two are in a class of their own. But SMU is a pretty quality team, with one of the top 2 or 3 players in the league. And we beat them in a game where SMU themselves played pretty well, in my opinion. Shows the potential of Tulane.

Right there with you. Get easy baskets and then the 3 is more open. 6-13 from the line is tough.

I admittedly haven't looked at Wichita in terms of personnel. But I know Cincinnati is going to be a TERRIBLE match up for us. Tall, strong, athletic, experienced inside guys, and quick, experienced guards of the type we tend to give career nights. Basically our two biggest weaknesses.

Get Sehic in now. Paul is not the right guy against quick big guys.

Soundwave got a fair amount of airtime during that halftime show. Glad to see it.

Would like to see a lot less offensive rebounds by Houston, coupled with the 28% shooting from the field, in the second half.

Yeah, the one thing about the Cincinnati game is it's late in the conference season and at home. Might catch them sleeping looking forward to postseason play.

Wichita on the road won't be fun.

Can’t double bigs. Davis and Gray will kill us.

Is there any technical reason why my feed keeps freezing momentarily while the game is on, but streams unfailingly through the commercials?
