    Your "Up & Down"

    I know CW usually does this during his wrap-up, but I didn't see it anywhere, and it's usually my favorite part. So I thought it might be interesting to see what the fans think.

    What are your "Up & Down" from Saturday?

    Up:
    Tyrus McGee - Dude is on a roll lately. I have seen a lot of people saying he should be starting, but I think the energy he provides off the bench is amazing. Besides, who would he start over? Allen - Like him or not, he is the PG we have right now. Babb - Yeah he's in another shooting slump, but his D has been outstanding. Ejim - We need that size to guard the 4 to start the game. Scotty - Please.

    Defense - I know TT was overmatched, but that was one of the best defensive games we have had all year.

    White's passing - A couple of those passes were REALLY good. I am still surprised that guys don't seem ready for them sometimes...


    Down:
    Offensive fouls - That was the most offensive fouls I have seen in a game in a long time. A lot of them were pretty ticky tack, especially Royce's charge on the little guy.

    3-point shooting - Continues to be a little down, percentage wise. Still made 7, but only out of 22.

    TTech - Man they are not good at all. They may win a game or two, but the whole year is going to be a mighty big struggle for the fighting Gillespies.

    Re: Your "Up & Down"

    Up: Booker. He played solid interior defense and went after rebounds. He is the player who has improved the most over the course of the season imo.

    Re: Your "Up & Down"

    UP - Winning at Tech for the first time in 12 years. That is a huge task for this team. If we go down and beat Texas on Tuesday that is 3 wins in Texas for BB this year. It would only help get us to the tourney.

    Re: Your "Up & Down"

    UP: Big Road Win--winning on the road when we were supposed to, that is huge.

    McGee.

    Winning a conference game without Royce putting up huge offensive numbers.

    Down: Not much to complain about at this point! Just keep winning!

    With all due respect it was only a 5 game losing streak to Tech on the road although it's been 12 years. We only played the teams from the south division once during the year so we alternate home/road games. I hate it when the media makes it out to be more than it is.

    Ejim only took 2 3's. The way some of you are acting, it makes it sound like he took 10. 2 isn't crazy.

    My ups:

    -McGee. He's playing with a ton of confidence right now and his defense is improving. Good to have him clicking while Babb is struggling with his shot. (But Babb is still playing good D)
    -Defense and Rebounding. TT isn't good, but we still played solid defense and out rebounded them.
    -
    My downs:
    -Post defense. Too many average post players are having good games against us.
    -Fouls. It didn't hurt us and I didn't like all of the calls, but we can't have fouls like that against better teams.

    Huge week coming up. We will have to play better against Texas.

    UP - They didn't blow the lead, but expanded it, in the second half.

    He's 1/11 in Big XII play and 6/28 in regular season. Problem is he shoots the 3 right away. It's not a huge deal, just a down for me. Guys are playing great so hopefully we get out there this week and kick some ***.

    True - but you never know when numbers like that can start to creep in the heads of players.
