    Why can't we hold a lead?

    Are we just not mentally tough or is it their change in defense and we don't react? I think we just get complacent and part of that I think is on Fred. Just a small part I realize. I'm glad they hung in there but they make it so hard on themselves not to mention all of us sitting at home yelling at whoever will listen. GO CLONES!!!!

    I think it's ISUs defense that tends to go to **** more than the offense. I don't know if teams figure out the defensive gameplan and the coaches are slow to adjust, or if the players get a little fatigued and play with less effort and focus on the defensive end.

    You ever try to hold lead? It gets real heavy after awhile.

    WVU's comeback was all about turnovers, not our D. We turned it over 10 out of 22 possessions of the 2nd half at one point.

    its our style, expect momentum swings,the things that makes us great on offense also makes us really sloppy at times.

    A couple bad TO's by Babb and Korie, Will misses 3 FT's. booker's brain fart and it 's really pretty easy to see how they stayed in the game

    Re: Why can't we hold a lead?

    I'd go with the 10 turnovers in 22 straight possessions stretch in the second half this time

    You're probably right for this game in regard to the the number of turnovers at the end.

    Re: Why can't we hold a lead?

    Sloppy ball handling by seniors, poor defense on the perimter, and a lack of timeouts to get your team settled down.
