I got off my rebounding kick or lack of because we have done a pretty good job when in position, our defensive scheme does not promote rebounding opportunities for our bigs because opposing coaches have figured out how to rotate the players and get our bigs 25 ft from the rim and that is not the players fault. My biggest complaint covers our seniors other than Trey and that’s shot selection and turnovers, we put up to many bad shots, walk and make to bad passes for a senior laden team i my opinion. Hopefully we have several games to play and we have the talent to make a run and I wish them the best for them and the hard work they have put in and hope they look internally and realize as a team it’s now time for them as a team. We have a good group of guys that seem to get along well and coaches that have run a good clean program, we always want more, but I’m proud of their accomplishments !

Refs are going to miss calls and make mistakes but I guarantee they make fewer than the players by a long shot. I think it’s high time we as a program and fan base take responsibility for the loss and move on and improve our play. Losers complain and winners explain ! Senior night at BWA I never heard a complaint so I assume the refs were near perfect, hardly. WPS
I also notice after a win, certain posters avoid the board
Here is my issue with some of the “fouling” yesterday. I do believe we had some bad fouls. One particular foul that we’ve had in every game this year is off a switch, a guard cuts to the basket, has an open shot and the guy chasing him fouls him with no chance of stopping him from getting the shot off. Our SR’s even do this. This drives me absolutely mad because it gives them an extra point EVERYTIME!
Yesterday, however, there were some fouls called on us, such as Cook’s hand checking that was also occurring on the opposite end without a single call. Even the announcers (who seemed to have some Missery bias) was questioning why Missery was getting away with fouls. There was indeed a bias yesterday, but some of the individuals on here screaming “Don’t blame the refs” are usually only here after a loss saying the same thing. They’re always wrong, and they are again today.
A few weeks back with 8 games left, I made the statement I thought we’d end up 6-2 with a possibility of 7-1 if we beat MO. Many of those posting told me no way, impossible. Ummmm......didn’t we finish 6-2?
I’ve said this multiple times this week. This time of year is all about matchups. No matter how games worked out yesterday, we would have had a bad matchup Thursday or Friday. Same people complaining today will be complaining Friday. A few claim is a Sweet 16 too much to ask? Care to bet if we make the Sweet 16 and lose they’ll complain it’s not good enough?
