Good teams do the little simple things right and they do them right consistently all the time. We do not.

I get the timeout being funny LAUGH OUT LOUD!!! This game was not lost on timeouts it was lost on effort from all involved. We did have 4 TV timeouts for motivation!!!!

Agree, was just working my frustration off w lame joke.

Does anybody really think he's going to turn this program around? C'mon, getting dominated at home to DePaul, G'town, and Providence is inexcusable.

I really hope he resigns at the end of the year and allows Cragg to hire a real coach.

Sitting on a train waiting to go home and I just could not wait until then to post. This is without a doubt THE most frustrating St. John’s team I have ever seen. How they could come out this flat against a 3-7 team, at home, after winning a huge game on the road against a top 10 team, is beyond belief. And please. Don’t tell me it was because we missed Heron. We did. But this team has enough talent to overcome that against a team like Providence.

At what point, and I sincerely am asking this question because I really don’t know, does a coaching staff take responsibility for a team coming out so flat the way our guys did? I get that the coaches aren’t executing on the court but how much true influence do they have on a team’s mental preparedness? This seems to happen too often with us. One step forward and then two steps back. Maddening.

I love this board. When we play great against Marquette, everyone is in love with this team. Then we lay an egg against Providence and, all of a sudden, we're terrible, we suck, etc.

Like my golf game, this team is consistently inconsistent. We laid an egg today, pure and simple. No energy, poor effort. No excuses. Apparently, we don't have any leaders that can push the button to get these guys to play. Maybe they need to have a players only meeting before every game.

The one shining light was the play of Roberts. He played with energy and enthusiasm and made a nice contribution. I only wish that he and Williams had been given more playing time during the non conference schedule so that they would be better prepared to contribute during the league season.

This is clearly a Jekyll and Hyde team. It wouldn't shock me at all if we came out flying Tuesday night against Butler at CA.

. We can probably tone down the talent on this Team refrain ... it’s not happening .. need more Basketball players and less Athletes ... 3 point shooting today was awful .. Other than Ponds , occasionally Trimble, Heron when he is able to play we don’t have the spot up shooters that nearly all other BE teams have . Clark has mailed it in the last couple of weeks . Why ? He looks uninspired ? Maybe , like Owens , thinks he should shoot 15 times a game ? He gave nothing today .

Gotta wonder, based on how Heron looked, if the injury is not a serious one. Not an excuse, but that would explain why the team came out flat. Would be a huge blow.

You're right, they are a Jekyll and Hyde team, but I've never been in love with this group. This was the exact same game as G'town. There was zero hustle and intensity in the 1st half. They played like a team that thinks they can just turn it on later in the game.

I want these guys to be confident when they get out on the floor, but I also want them to realize that they are not Duke. They can't just flip a switch and make things happen. If they scratch and claw for 40 minutes, they are going to win more than they lose. But this group of guys just don't bring it every game. After a game like Marquette, these guys should've wanted to run through a wall. And now? Back to square one. As I continually say, that is 100% on Chris Mullin. Why can't he get his guys to play an entire game?

I’ve mailed the season in.
Shame on me.
“But the team did first, brother!
Honest!”
8-10 in BEC at best.
We beat Butler Tuesday.
Typical.
No way we beat Nova.
@Prov is a loss.
We lose to the Hall because Willard will have his team prepared and they have our number.
@DePaul is also a loss.
This team couldn’t beat St. Mary’s High School, Anywhere USA, consistently.
Pathetic effort.
Stunning Loss.
Hope Mustapha heals...for his sake...not ours.
We do not deserve it.
