    A positive thing to take away from this L

    We honestly couldn't have played any worse tonight. Couldnt rebound or shoot the ball tonight and lost to Kansas by 7. ONLY 7!! We cant stay cold like this for the rest of the season. hopefully our bad stretch of games are behind us and start the season over. 0-0 from here on out.

    KU also turned if over 20 some times...not like they light the world on fire. We better figure out how to at least keep the rebounding margin close and we have to hit shots. Really rough 2 game stretch shooting the basketball...better stop the bleeding in Austin. 2 in a row can turn into 5 in a row real quick.

    Agree. But the lack of rebounding is concerning. Kane looked tight in the second half. Need less stand around threes. Take them in the flow of the offense.

    Re: A positive thing to take away from this L

    That is mainly due to the fact that KU's freshman led team turned it over 24 times to negate the fact that they dominated us on both sides of the ball for the most part.

    There is no positive after that beat down. None.

    That's what happens when you miss 48 shots. Lots of opportunities to grab rebounds.

    Re: A positive thing to take away from this L

    We hit our threes at a normal rate and it would have been a completely different game. Same with OU. The way we're shooting they had no right being in them. But they've got heart and tenacity. Need to find a way to get back in rhythm.

    me thinks we were trying to pad his stats to ensure he gets drafted and we have a better shot next year. thats gotta be it, right guys
