This is them in a nutshell. The sequence right before half with 1:02 left, Jalen Reed misses yet another dunk in consecutive games where he underestimates how high/far he can jump and gets blocked by the rim. How many times does it take him to learn that a layup counts for the same amount of points?

We end up getting a stop on the other end and call a timeout with 46 seconds left. We try another 3 with 40 seconds left and another brick only nobody gets back on defense and there’s a long outlet for a breakaway posterizing slam dunk and a foul.

Now there’s 33 seconds left and Syracuse has a chance for another possession if we don’t shoot it at the shot clock buzzer. But no, we don’t even get a shot off because Trae Hannibal, the turnover machine, travels with 10 seconds left giving Syracuse plenty of time for a last shot.

I applaud what looks like a team that is at least giving effort. But it’s just wasted with piss poor shot making abilities, turnovers and just low IQ basketball.

All a direct result of the piss poor coaching they are getting!

It’s not gonna change. It won’t get better with the roster as is. I don’t know what it would look like if Cook were to get cleared but Williams is just inexperienced and in foul trouble and Hannibal just isn’t the answer. He’s a drive only point guard and won’t/can’t shoot the 3.

1 for 14 from 3 is a pretty good indication of how bad they are at shooting

what's worse is that most are complete bricks.

This is on Woody. He should have stood strong for the General now we are bottom dwellers because he didn’t have the spine to stand up to the NCAA

These guys are playing their arse off. They’re just not that talented and are poorly coached. Sucks! Because they really seem to want it.

I can't make myself watch anymore of this game. Watched the last min of the 1st half you just described, seeing LSU made a couple of stupid mistakes a grade school team shouldn't make. Turned it to a different channel, but came back in the 2nd half in time to see LSU blow a 3 on 1 fast break by not passing ahead to a guy standing by himself in the paint. No defense, poor shot selection, allowing wide open 3's, substandard ball handling. I could go on, but I can't stand to see more. I may give LSU men's BB a second chance later in the season, but I'm done watching them for a while. I like basketball, but it's just to painful to watch this.

Meanwhile McNeese is on the road at UAB with a lead and already owns a win over VCU.

Watching Baylor-Nicholls and the Colonels are down 25 at half. How did NSU beat the Tigers?

All I know is that we had a coach who was turning the corner and we’re too cowardly to stand with him. So now we will have a shite team until we shitcan this coach and possibly have to shitcan the next while we spiral into mediocrity.

The tigers didn’t do right by Will Wade and now we must suffer.

Two years of unwatchable play. Can’t even enjoy men’s basketball. It’s just not enjoyable to sit there and watch your favorite team get drummed. So again this year, I had to turn it off and go do something else.

no they ducking don’t. If the did they would move and quit reaching. They would rebound. They would do basic shite.

Screw em. That second half was as poor as I’ve ever seen
