    Kind of lost in the moment

    Despite Melvin's tremendous game was the lackadaisical effort from the rest of the team yesterday. I think after the emotionally draining OSU game, you could kind of see it coming against TCU. A few of us in the stands even remarked how they were just going through the motions. Going to need a better effort in Morgantown. I have no doubt they will.

    It's kinda fun to be mad we only won by 15 in a conference game huh? I agree though, but I know we will be ready to play tomorrow.

    It was good enough to win by double digits in a conference game....not sure how you could quantify your issue...

    It's not like the rest of the team was incapable of scoring. It was pretty clear they started feeding Ejim the ball when they themselves could have gotten the points pretty easily.

    I would just say they weren't sharp in all aspects. Completely natural to mentally take a breath after a brutal stretch when you are facing an "easier" team.

    the few of you in the stands should just stfu, enjoy a great win, and stop being ********.

    The defense was bad in the second half. I'll get over it.

    The first 9 games were hell. This was ripe for a letdown game and while things weren't super smooth, the game really never was in doubt.

    I pictured a really big guy with a palm on a little guy's head while he flailed away .

    Great, another one looking for the pot of sh** at the wrong end of the rainbow.

    Re: Kind of lost in the moment

    The reality is there is no way a team can always "get up" and be jacked for every game. The key is to be able to find a way to win against "lesser" opponents even when you're not at 100% "up for the game."

    Re: Kind of lost in the moment

    I wasn't mad by any means, but was reminded of the movie Semi-Pro, when towards the beginning they would make a basket, then celebrate at halfcourt, and you could see the other team behind them getting an easy transition layup. I thought of that towards the end when we were trading buckets.

    I was also reminded of that movie when we started throwing up like 50 alley-oops. It was like Melvin's mom came to him in a dream during halftime and taught him the ways of the alley-oop. All that was missing was father Pat.

    Re: Kind of lost in the moment

    They seemed to get that 10-13 point lead, and coast from there. The final margin of score was about what I figured it would be.

    The game itself just didn't seem to have much energy--it's like that sometimes.

    A solid Pitt team had to get through 2 OT's to beat 8-15 Va Tech at home yesterday, so it could've been worse.

    The other guys were struggling to hit shots, but they still found other ways to contribute. Kane ended up with 10 assists and Georges filled up the stat sheet with 11 points, 6 boards, and 6 assists

    Re: Kind of lost in the moment

    One thing you will find with a coach who has been in the pros, they know that different players get hot on different nights. This doesn't mean others are lazy. It means they recognize and assist. And they know if the need changes that somebody else can step up. So back off.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.
