    Close losses

    I was looking at some stats, and we have lost 8 games so far by 6 pts. or less, and that's not including the Okie St. game that we had in the bag, but lost by 9 in OT.

    Last year, we also had 8 losses of 6 pts. or less. It's nice to be "in" games, but we've just gotta find a way to start winning these close ones. Painful.


    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    Re: Close losses

    The difference is that last year we had more balanced talent that was losing those games. We had a good guard in DG and a great power forward in Craig and a good wing in Gilstrap. We also had a true center in Hamilton and Dendy.

    Add Hamilton to this team and I think we would have 3 more wins at worst and would be sitting at 17 wins which would be pretty darn impressive for Fred's first year.
