    That's Why You Foul

    I have no doubt we would have won if we would have fouled before McLemore's 3 point shot. I do not understand why more coaches don't do this, especially with somebody like him on the court. Great effort (pre OT) from our guys tonight.

    Re: That's Why You Foul

    You have to ask, even if we didn't want to foul, why in the **** did we have guys standing BEHIND the screeners? Did we give a flying **** if they drove for a two point basket with 2 seconds left in the game?!?!?!?

    Re: That's Why You Foul

    I foul within 10 seconds every single time. No question. Good effort regardless. I don't think any of us expected this game to be that close.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    We were lost on defense and didn't identify McLemore at any point during the possession. You're right.

    Re: That's Why You Foul

    Totally agree. Even if that doesn't go in, I still feel that way. It's too risky, especially on the road. Nobody else would have made that shot either, can't let him shoot it.

    Re: That's Why You Foul

    Agree 100 percent... Makes ZERO sense not to. I feel coaches don't do this because its unconventional... If you are afraid of them rising up and shooting do it while they are near half court..... Not mad at Fred. Great game plan but next time we are in that situation I better see some of the hardest fouls of the game

    Re: That's Why You Foul

    As soon as he made it you knew we would't win in OT. I agree always foul in that situation. Anyway, see you on Feb. 25th KU. You have it coming.

    Re: That's Why You Foul

    This loss is absolutely on Fred and the staff. You just have to foul there...you don't even give them the chance to go into OT, especially at Phog.

    Guys played their guts out, Fred lost the game. Bad decision especially on the road.

    Would have been nice for Lucious not to miss the front end of the first one and one with about 20 seconds to go as well. . .

    Re: That's Why You Foul

    Great effort by the team. Can't blame them for running out of gas in OT after the effort they put out and without Niang. I doubt CFH will make that mistake again.
