If what Kshoe reported is true then how it was posted in the Biz Journal was very misleading.  Poor journalism.

There seemed to be a couple of possession last night when the a lead had been established and UTPA was about to be in obvious foul mode and AM was not yet on the floor. Yeah, it's only one or two possessions, but it may very well have been the game.  Also, there seemed to be quite a stretch in the second half where AY wasn't on the floor, we were having obvious problems scoring. I started to wonder if he was in foul trouble - nope - 2 fouls.

I agree we were all screaming at Crews as to why his best FT shooter was on the bench when they were in a fouling situation. I do like MY but he has to be a better FT shooter - no excuses.  He is going to get fouled plenty and he can not shoot as poorly as he did last night.  MB will be very good  if given time - he can shoot he just doesn't for whatever the reason.

AM and MB are the only guys we have who can play pg at all.  Roby is not a point guard - at least not that I have seen yet.  Not sure what is going on with MR but ever since he had that one good game he has seemed to be lost.  I had hoped for more from him by now.  AM is not a great pg but he is OK especially since we don't really have any other real options.


I am thinking that the sophomores may have finally started to show some signs of life.  Perhaps MC's mysterious illness was holding him back, TL seems to be more focused and that alone will get him on the floor more.  RA - still struggling but you can at least put him in for short spurts and he does not hurt you to bad.  


AY - if as you said in the paper that you know you can shoot then just do it.  This is not rocket science.  If AY and MC can hit a few shots then it will open things up for AM who we know can shoot if he is open.  


AG - can not patrol inside but he is kind of instant offense.  We have to devise a scheme to take advantage of this.  Jolly is having a tough time but he can still improve.  JM - just clog up the middle and hit your FTs and you can at least see the floor for more than a cameo.  AY - learn to hit your FTs - that is where you will make your living.


While things have picked up the last couple of games it will still be a frustrating year for fans.  If this trend continues then the team will be better as the season goes on and really that is all we could have expected.

Second game in row that the team found a way to beat back the opponents.  Not pretty but the end result is what counts.  If Roby is having an attitude problem then he will seal his own fate.  Maybe he just is immature and gets upset when he doesn't play well.  It takes time to grow up.  If Crawford has been sick then why have we not heard of this before - I am not doubting Durando but should he have not reported on this before?  Seems to be a rather important piece of information.  The kid from Estonia was originally at MS so he is no uncovered gem.  The kid was quick and able to create his own shot something we do not  have.

Very misleading - I am not sure how they exactly reached this figure but if they took all the seat license fees and the actual ticket price plus including all the other higher priced seats you could come up with this figure is my guess.  I am sure we are not the only school who charges seat fees.
