.@StJohnsBBall’s Nick Rutherford my new favorite player. Plays likes he goes to the electric chair if he loses. And, he’s a Dallas kid from Allen HS.

We are really a poor outside shooting team,
But what seams more critical is our rebounding is pathetic
Butler is a pretty small team.

Wait till we have to play some squads with big guys up

What’s. Up with Steere?
He didn’t get a minute
Roberts also got little time
Also was Rutherford on the Floor on the final play?

1) I agree with not putting Figgy back in. Go with the guys that erased the 20 point lead. Its not fair to them. and it shows Figgy and Heron that defense is going to win games.
2) Greg Willams is getting is confidence and into game shape. He looked good tonight and hopefully he gets more aggressive offensively. I think he's capable of putting up about 10 points a game
3) even with Figgy and Heron we are an offensively challenged team.
4) the defensive intensity seems to be increasing with every game. It will be hard to match that intensity on the road in the next game
5) 9-9 in conference gets us in the tourney. We need to hold serve at home. So with this loss we need to pick up a win on the road,


What I dont get is after Caraher hit the 3 to tie the game he never gets to take another shot. At the end Dunn took everything on himself. He wanted to be the star. Caraher was open for a 3 to win the game. It's a team game guys. Pass the ball!

So we had a tremendous 2nd half run, got a lead late and then couldn’t close it out. It’s about W’s and L’s and in my opinion there are no moral victories and that was a bad loss. Another example of us not knowing how to play with a lead. And I may be harsh but Dunn backing that ball out was a “me” play and I just don’t see it.


Great point on Dunn play, inexplicable.


Yeah, I get that but that's an NYC pg mentality. He wants the ball in the end. Seems we forgot what he did against wvu at the end. You've got to live with it, good or bad until this team has more offensive talent.

Rutherford is warrior. Willed this team back in the game. Our bench is looking like the bright spot of this team. Didn’t expect a goose egg from LJ. Has to take better shots and play smarter on defense.

But man, I’m proud of the fight. Defense was on a different level in the second half. I wouldn’t of put LJ back in either. But those guys had been out there a long time. Kinda wish he would’ve gotten in around 2 mins left.

The play was a clear out for him on the left side of the floor. He tried to attack but lost the ball and kicked it to Dunn. This is where basketball iq and awareness has to come in. But he’ll be better in that situation next time.

I don’t think the big East will be able to handle us when we are engaged the whole game on defense. Think we will win this Xavier game. And Georgetown. And then beat DePaul in MSG. Gonna be fun.


Well then why not full court press for 100% of the game and not 80%-85%
I'd go extreme every damn time.


It's harder to set up your press when you don't score.

I haven't read all the posts but to me one small critical point was when butler went to a 1-3-1 trap late in the game. We couldn't solve it, called a to and butler went back to man. That small adjustment on two defensive stands was huge in getting them back.
