    It's hard to be a Billikens fan..as we all know too well.

    You missed the point . We are talking DUQUESNE ..

    Even more depressing is that Duquesne in Dambrots year 2 is 6 and 2 and on the upswing with a true point guard in Carry and a better overall roster ..at Duquesne!!

    GDT: vs The SPAHderrrs

    Agreed. That is what coaching is. We went to a poorly played zone after golden schooled us in the first half. Did not get out of it until the last 3 minutes when it obviously didn't work. Mix it up a bit and how does thatch not even smell the court until the end.

    Inability to finish at the basket.....

    Even worse is if you look at Goodwin's putback at the end of the game even with him getting fouled it was very makeable. No free throws needed of he just made it.

    Could be worse. Porte and Loyola lose 70-35 at Missouri State. Ouch.

    GDT: The pretend Duke

    Agreed but it hurts to lose the way we did when it was very winnable .

    Agreed Taj. You can try to look for positives but it was an embarrassing display of basketball.

    Unfortunately Travis can recruit but his in game coaching leaves a lot to be desired. Ask Oklahoma State why he was let go.

    My take is as I said earlier Travis made the decision to play Jacobs in a tight game with 6 minutes to go. Not a good decision when it is obvious he is not ready to be in at that point in the game

    No question on him. I question Travis having him in with 6 minutes to go in a tight game . 2 possessions in a row he let his man drive right by him which led to us having problems on defense. Not the time to reward a lightly played freshman especially in an away game.

    S Hall over the Bills by 21

    If anslytics was all it took to win the dodgers would have won the world series and the rockets would be NBA champions. I appreciate Wiz and his take on this but his data is limited being early in the season and with the shooting stats being a key part of the grades bad shooting will continue to affect the AVERAGE. . I prefer MANalytics which is more than numbers.

    Practice Tuesday

    Based on practice and what I observed you are spot on. The best part of the top 7 is they are all active and can be interchanged due to versatility. I could even see DJ , French and Gordon on the floor at the same time depending on matchups.

    Practice Tuesday

    Happened to be at practice when Jacobs was told the news. Great to see the reaction by the coaches and the team as he ran to the locker room to get ready. Lots of offense / defense transition drills with top 7 players rotating as the white team and the blue team held it's own. Thatch is SO strong and has a motor that does not stop. Tramaine and Dion both great shooters Chemistry of the team still a work in progress but will definitely be there soon Gordon is talented but still learning how to play at this level. His effort is there though which is encouraging. French and DJ both ready for a big year Goodwin and Tramaine have not figured out their roles as both of them like having the ball. Since they will both be playing lots of minutes together still a work in progress. Once the season rolls and Travis gets into a 8 man rotation may not see the freshman alot but they are a solid core of talent for the future and definitely push the starters in practice. No matter how this all plays out Travis has turned the team around very quickly after the disaster that Crews left. It is a great time to be a Billiken fan again.
