    I remember Iowa loosing a 20+ point half time lead to UNLV in the NCAAs in the eighties, I also saw them lose with a 10 point lead with a minute left I think to Missouri. It's basketball, sometimes that's the way the ball bounces.

    Only thing I can think of is that Fred probably wasn't too keen on Tyrus poking another 3 point shooter in the face and drawing a foul for the second game in a row. I think that happened in the second half and we didn't see much of Tyrus after that.

    If that was the reason (or anything close to it), that would be ridiculous as we could have really used his shooting down the stretch.

    I watch the game and don't post until after it is over. I had to read this thread, because I realized it would be interesting to read foolish things, and then have people take them back afterward.

    Part of the reason for this, is I think refs naturally help teams that are behind in the second half make a game of it, especially home teams. Also I keep thinking this league may have it out for us, the composition of the league has changed so much in recent years. So I think both factors were in play. I think if Huggins would have played mug um ball, like he did in the second half, we would have had trouble building up such a big lead. I don't know how much depth he has, but he seems to play lots of players. That hurts at time because some of those players do stupid things on offense.

    All around, I think the guys played well, just didn't react well to the change in style of play in the second half, and the refs giving so many breaks to WV. However, no reason to get upset, over all the team played really well. They overcame everything that can happen in a road game. I could hardly be any happier.
