    What has happened to Lucious?

    What a time to lose his composure. I thought it was just a little slump against Oklahoma and was surprised that he played the same way if not worse in this game. He seemed out of control and forced so many shots. I could tell he was down on himself and his teammates tried to pick him up but I think it really hurt our chances as the game wore on.

    No doubt he's hurting right now. I hope he can just take a few deep breaths over these next few days and relax a little bit. I think that would do him worlds of good.

    I wouldn't say he lost his composure. He was just off, and got frustrated with himself. Happens to everyone once in a while

    Not scoring, but you realize he had 9 assists yesterday and 7 tonight. He will be just fine.

    I also think that he started to get it back at the end of the game. He'll be back for the dance. That layup dropping in after hanging on the rim was huge, and the three before that should make things come together. He frankly was just out there trying too hard. Not going to fault him for that. There is no question we are a better team with him on the floor.

    Walters thought he had a hip injury yesterday.

    Oklahoma game his shot was off, today he pressed hard and it affected the other portions of his game and the results were tough to watch. He is a player and he will bounce back.

    Re: What has happened to Lucious?

    Kind of reverted back to early season form, he's pressing because these are his last games to showcase what he can do to everyone. Fred played this right, he showed KL he's not afraid to sit him and he showed him he will stick with him tonight, it's up to KL now. I think he'll shine in the dance.


    Rhoads out!

    Re: What has happened to Lucious?

    I don't know, he looked awful. He made tons of critical turnovers. Will Clyburn only plays well at Hilton. He's pretty worthless elsewhere. I don't care that he had 17 yesterday, he's so inconsistent its unreal

    This is the 100 million dollar question. Lucious is what puts everything together. If he plays bad, we're out in the first round. If he plays good, sky is the limit. Hopefully Hoiberg can figure this one out quick.

    Trying too hard, and forcing things. A couple of days off will probably help him.

    I believe that. He did not drive much. Hope it is back to normal next Thursday.

    Re: What has happened to Lucious?

    He is just not contributing with his own scoring, but he still is helping the scoring of others. He's also had six steals in the last two games. What does concern me is that he fell back into the turnover bug a little tonight. Hopefully, he can shake it off once the NCAA starts.

    That's what comes with the point guard position.

    I'm sure he'll bounce back we definitely need him that's for sure. No doubt there's an awful lot of pressure on the point guard. Oh, by the way I still hate Kansas and Bill Self is not the coach I though he was.
