Didn't see any of these up already so here it is. Looking for the Morris, Morgan, and Hardaway trio to continue their good play tonight

a little frustrating. The only word that I can think of is, LAZY. This is not a team that can just show up and expect a win. For those of you who didn't get to catch the UTEP game, there effort tonight looks about the same. That night I kept waiting for them to get it going and they never did. Luckily for us NCCU is a horrible team.

i must be watching a different game.  yes, the shots aren't falling but they continue to work hard on D and are crashing the glass on offense.  i'm not seeing any lack of hustle.  the shots, in general, are good.  they just aren't falling.

If we play like this against a team that has some kind of idea how to bounce a basketball, we're going to lose by 25. Picking up your dribble before half-court, in a trap, 8 seconds into the 10 second count? My junior high coach would have run our nuts off for things like that.

I understand not shooting well. That's going to happen from time to time. But this team handles NCC's press like Superman handles kryptonite.

It's the white jerseys.  (I'm only half-joking here.)  We wear maize for the big home games.  White is reserved for games that aren't deemed as important.  We're almost asking for a letdown when we put these on.  Dump 'em and go maize all the time at home.

Glad I'm not the only one who feels this way!  I guess the counter-argument would be that, if we always wear Maize, it's not special & we don't get any boost out of it.  I'd be willing to sacrifice that boost, though, to negate the crummy way we always seem to play when we wear white.  Plus, the Maize jerseys look sweet, the white look much more generic.
