    Bad first half team

    The announcers are right, this will bite us in the butt in Big 12 play. How can fix this?


    This is Ophion speaking.

    If the previous two years have taught me anything, it's that they will be ready to go come conference play.

    Re: Bad first half team

    They have been saying this for the past 6 games. The only way to beat us is to give us the lead in the first half. The guys won't know what to do.

    Re: Bad first half team

    There's no fix. We take everyone's best shot, but teams can't sustain it. Then we pick our way to victory.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Well, we won't go undefeated... I'd actually be worried if they started red hot.

    Re: Bad first half team

    Not all that concerned. A lot of the misses in the first half were solid looks, just off the mark.

    Yeah, not just today, they missed a lot of shots these 3 games they normally hit. Fortunately we don't have to play in Hawaii's gym again.

    Re: Bad first half team

    I agree, had great shots, just missed them, however, this team can defend and stay close enough to strike when things get going.

    Re: Bad first half team

    I've said it before ... they are so thin up front that they play on pins and needles in the first half to keep out of foul trouble. If they aren't hitting 3's early (and we haven't been), it's hard to get things going.

    Re: Bad first half team

    We play our best at clutch time, so I can't complain too much. If we continue to play this badly to start against conference foes we are looking at a 11'ish win conference season. However, as pointed out, so far under Fred, we've really upped our game when the B12 rolls around.

    Luckily I didn't have to watch us lose to Hawaii in that dang gym like we did with McDermott.

    Re: Bad first half team

    If our bad first half play can survive the excellent depth of the Iowa Hawkeyes, it can survive the depth of the Big 12 Conference.

    This might very well have something to do with it. Hoiberg learned last year that when Niang and Ejim were saddled with foul trouble, we were in big trouble.

    We may very well be instituting the Rope-A-Dope strategy to some degree.

    Those announcers were missing a chromosome
