Hopefully there is no Houston hangover and they take care of business.

Sion James is a great defender and strong as hell but I can’t believe we are continuing to play him down low a lot in the zone. He was basically the starting center.

Pope and James playing great early. Neither team makes much of an attempt to get offensive rebounds.

The 2/5 FT shooting is the biggest issue so far. That’s something we are really good at

They can’t get hot from 3. We need to get going. Maybe being tied will light a fire.

I can’t stand when we get in 3 point shooting contests. Only Forbes has been consistent for us. Cook is shooting less than 31% from 3 this year. Way too many step back contested 3s. Get to the rim. They don’t have a real shot blocker.

Why don’t we just let them take a few more wide open 3s.

This team has two athletic players. A zone is doing them a big favor.

Playing terribly. Down 1 at the half.

Finally realizing we can score at will inside. Sion gets two in a row.

Being down 1 at the half is the best we can ask for after that half. Missing Cross is big but we should be able to beat a team like this without him.

I think a big part is we enjoyed a hard fought game against Houston and looked at Tulsa’s record.

Some awful looking pizza. I don’t think the announcers are good actors.

Even the announcers are knocking our defensive effort. Only Sion James seems to be playing hard.

Awful call and Cook picks up his third.

We retake the lead with a Coleman 3. He then blocks a shot on the other end and Cook is robbed by the refs.

Hard to get an offensive rebound on a longer shot when the only 4 players within 6 feet of the basket are wearing white jerseys... Twice this half...

Holloway has come alive. Tied under 12. He will head to the line for 2. Forbes having a tough night.

At this point I have accepted that this is Hunter ball and it doesn’t really bother me anymore when we don’t get rebounds because that’s the way he wants it. I’m more bothered by horrible shots, no movement on offense and missed open looks and layups.

I guess geographically it was cheaper to send these refs for an 0-6 conference team.

Honestly, we don’t even look like we are trying and are leading.

Just from the two games I’ve seen, Tulsa is not a good team regardless of their horrible record

We are flat out exhausted. Everybody tugging at their shorts and walking. TV timeout much needed. Up 5 with 5:28 to go.

Pope showing why he needs more minutes. 12 points and 7 rebounds along with some real tough inside play.

I though Days played well in his few minutes.

There’s no reason why we should be tired at this point in the season. It’s what they’ve been doing all season.

Our games are completely reliable on offensive performance and the hope that our opponents don’t have 3-pt shooters or 6’5” “big” men. When we are cold or have too many guys throwing up prayer shots, teams will be able to play close games against us.

Not feeling great.

Huge step back if you lose to a 0-6 league team, regardless of who didn’t play.

Maybe they thought the season was over after Houston loss?

Cook with a big basket after a nice rebound by Coleman. Guys just look down. The last 3 minutes are huge.

Their awful foul shooting is the only reason we are leading.

You cannot let a >300 RPI Rick Dickson basketball team off the hook.

Another close call against Cook.

Why Coleman over Pope?

Phantom foul on Pope.
