This game started out like our last few: we burst from the gate to take a comfortable lead, hit our “lull” and let the opponent get some buckets, then hit a loooong lull and let them take the lead, then struggle to run a half-court offense and lose the game.
It’s sad because this team is so much better than this. I’m not sure what the difference is between these last few games and the rest of the season. All I can do is observe.
Wofford seemingly fixed their problem … after dropping 7 straight before the tourney, they’ve won 3 straight to advance to the finals tonight.
We still have a shot at the NIT or other post-season tourney because of our record and NET (currently 83). But losing three straight does not help our case.

When you allow a team to score 48 points on you in the paint and you have two of the best shot blockers in the nation, you’re going to lose. Bottom line.
We did everything else right — blocks, steals, turnovers .. etc. But we let them score 62% of their points inside AND outrebound us. That’s where the game was lost.
