We covered the spread btw Mizzou +15
I would have felt good betting it when we were up 13
Mizzou kicked our butts on the boards during their comeback stretch in the first half but they also got some help from the Refs. I think Johnny has this team playing close to their full potential. There is only so high of a ceiling you can reach with the talent we have. I love the way we play basketball, it's so much more enjoyable to watch versus years past. Coach has us way past my expectations this season.

Just saw the replay (couldn't watch it during the day). I think that it is Coach Jones' worst coaching performance of the year. Besides the lack of a timeout (like he did earlier in the year) his substitutions were bad. After the 13 point lead Mizzou started keeping things even. Once they bit a few points into the lead Jones started pulling substitutions reacting to everything and the team never regained composure.
On the good side: The way Carmouche has been playing of late he could play for every team in the SEC and nearly every team in the country. He has been that good!
Hickey played very controlled through the first 10 minutes or so. Took open three's, didn't force anything. His and Carmouche's penetration led directly to them getting good shots. I can't blame anything after that (really shot well in whole 1st half) as the team chemistry was breaking.
Stringer should probably come off the bench in a "Microwave" type role. He did very well in the last game and I thought they were going to continue that. Sorry they didn't.
ADP needs to play more. I don't care about what he does offensively, his presence on the D has a visible effect on the other team. Once he comes out the guards start driving and making layups.
Did we really not press until 3 minutes to go? Really?
