    IF you were worried during our game

    Take a look at how some other teams did on their opener. OSU and UT barely won their games. I think this team just needs time to gell together. Missing Babb doesn't help with that either. Our free throws were bad and Korie couldn't hit ANYTHING. That wont be the case most of the time.

    I think #25 Florida State lost their first game.

    Edit- they lost to South Alabama

    You put Babb back in the lineup and Beltran scores 16 instead of 26 and we're never down by more than 4 in the first half.

    Also you see this all the time at the start of the year. It's not like we were as good as the fans hoped last year to start and they finished just fine

    Ask Purdue and Michigan State how their opening night went as well.

    Re: IF you were worried during our game

    I wasn't worried about winning the game, just infuriated by Lucious' boneheaded plays. I was damn near ready to play "punt the dog" at halftime.

    if it's that much of a difference, and we don't have back-up in case of foul trouble/injury, then that's a cause for concern.

    Re: IF you were worried during our game

    I was fairly vocal last night after the game. I think we played well in a lot of areas.

    Destroyed them on the glass
    Wore them down in the 2nd half
    Gibson looks very improved
    A light (not sure if it was "the" light yet) seemed to come on for Clyburn
    Naz Long...I'm really impressed with kid
    Niang...boy, he good
    There was a time in the first half where Georges inbound to Naz...it made me smile
    Ejim was Ejim. I think we know what he's going to do.

    Korie Lucious...after about 3 minutes of play, I wanted to see his *** on the bench. He just thinks he's better than he is. If he can figure out his role, I like where this team is heading.

    Well....To be honest they were getting a lot of weak calls where we got a lot of no calls. They were "worn down" because they were all in foul trouble.

    The answer to this is fairly obvious. I realize it was game 1, which is why I said the part about KL figuring out his role.

    As crappy as we played, if both teams shoot 60-80% from the line the game would have been comfortable the whole way. ISU hitting sub 50% and Southern hitting 11 for their first 11 is the main reason the game was close in the first half even with a poor performance. In the second half we hit our free throws and they were never able to make a run because of that.

    Re: IF you were worried during our game

    Really no flow to the first half. Fred was using a lot of combinations. Half time adjustments, guys getting comfortable (save Korey) and it was a different game. I'm not worried.

    We had Long and McGee on Baltran the second half and they pretty much shut him down.
