    Nice road win. Great job by Matthews on that steal and he even made a FT. Our guys have got to get better at closing games out and hit their FTs down the stretch.
    Also, are we bad at 3 pt defense or have teams just been hot against us?

    college officiating is so bad. But Molinar misses 2, DJ misses 1 and Cam misses 1. Then Devion has a complete lapse leaving a 3 point shooter wide open. And it took all of that for Vandy to cover the spread.

    Hopefully Mathews' offense comes along bc I really like the rest of his game. His offense can be pretty brutal though

    Yea we definitely didn?t close it out clean. The officiating was still keeping them in the game.

    Tolu had a good game. Just wish we could make FT above 70% as a team. You have to be able to do that to achieve any sort of success.

    We need to win 2 of the next 3, but 3-0 will be fantastic.

    We are terrible against 3 point defense, but I think part of that is because of our strong defense in the paint. We need to win these next 3 home games and then need to win at least 1 of that 4 game road stretch.

    By design...Howland is a stats guy. He is willing to give up some threes to control the interior. Obviously, it can bite you in the butt too. Like Liberty and teams like Kentucky when you have some guy come off the bench and light you up from behind the arch. Thomas from Vandy came off the bench to go 5-9 from behind the line today. We can manage the game effectively as long as we can make our free throws.

    If we want to make the tournament, we need to sweep the next 3, win AT LEAST 2 of the 4 road games, and beat Iowa State (They have a NET of 180 currently).

    We should make the tournament given what we've seen now. This team is much more talented than what we knew preseason.

    We are a good basketball team. To me, we need some solid SEC play, finish Top 4 and get a tournament bye, and make the tournament. If we are to do that, we've got to go 4-2 worst case in these next 6 SEC games.

    Finish top 4 in the SEC and CBH should be considered for national coach of the year...
    the SEC is VERY strong in hoops .. I have no idea how the selection committee will handle this season, but the SEC should around 7 bids... if not more

    This is as good as the league has been since the early 2000s. It’s a battle every night. Even the bad teams like Vandy and Ole Miss aren’t terrible.

    Was watching Arizona State and UCLA the other night because nothing was on. That looked like a bad Juco basketball game, compared to SEC play. No comparison in the talent and style of play. Not sure how good either of those programs are, but they have not been historically bad.
