Very similar to the Seton Hall game. We came flying out of the gate. Had one get stretch in the second half and then fell apart. Paschall was hot in the first half and then Booth in the second.

Anyone see us realistically winning these next 6 of our next 7? Especially if our road finishes are going to be the norm the rest of the season? This Nova win would have surely kept us in the rankings solidly and generating buzz for the program.

Frustrating loss for sure but think you're overreacting just a little.

It’s not about being ranked it’s making the tournament. We have to hold serve at home and get a couple more road wins. This loss isn’t the end of the world for us but it’s the way we lost that is pretty damn annoying

One fatal play..easy to overlook...but a reflection of the frustrating game this was...
About 12 seconds left, nova has ball, we are down by 3.
Nova misses everything on the lob/shot..ball goes out to sideline,
as they rebound it. Clock does not reset.
We race out to pick up rebounder and with one second left on 30 second clock, we foul.
It was natural to do given the play. . But ironically, if we didnt foul that second, we would have the ball with 9 seconds left.
It was just that weird kind of finish....

Most of us agree with your point. Your Coach of the Year, however, does not.

Being ranked is nice but us learning from our losses is more important. We need Williams and Keita getting at least 8 minutes a game or we’re gonna continue this same cycle.

Look this loss sucks no way around that cause we were in position to win this game but didn’t get the job done. That said though we are through our toughest stretch of games in the league and went 2-2 and were a bad ref call away from 3-1. Now it’s time to take care of business at home and get back on track we will be fine, and we will beat Novas ass in the Garden!

Keita played 5, Williams 0 and Trimble 27.


I’m ok with Williams not playing because Trimble played well but hard to understand with Keita. My big problem with this team is the turn it on and off tendency. Mistakes will be made, part of the game, but will we ever see a focused 40? We have a very experienced team yet seemingly you can expect unintelligent, uninspired play as soon as we get a lead. I know I am repeating myself but halfway through the season I wonder where is the real on the court leadership, the understanding of time and score, the recognition of the opportunity for a knockout. I agree we have more talent than Nova but I am not sure we have a better team.

On the bright side, we're undefeated in games not officiated by M, Stephens.
