    Ejim's T's Hurting Us

    Technicals in last two games caused Ejim to sit on the bench for extended periods of time. Not something a fourth-year senior should be doing.

    And, for those of you who don't think we will miss Kane next year, you couldn't be more wrong. I would be very happy with another experienced big guard transferring in next year.

    Without Melvin we lose without it being a game...he is who he is at this point. Just enjoy the big 12's leading scorer on your team.

    That's a ridiculous statement. Getting a T is something you can control. As good as the rest of his game has been, the T's hurt our chances of winning because in addition to giving them 2 pts on free throws in a tight game, we lose Ejim's presence on the court. You cannot argue that it didn't hurt our chances of winning.

    Not nearly as much as his 20 points and 10 rebounds a game helps us.

    Re: Ejim's T's Hurting Us

    I suppose the other thread titled "another Technical for Melvin" wasn't sufficient enough?

    Ejim still had a huge game despite sitting on the bench for part of the 2nd. him, or his technical, didnt have anything to do with the loss. FT's, 3 point specialists missing wide open looks, and the bench giving us nothing tonight is why we lost. Don't single out the guy that has been the backbone of our team for 3-4 years. he wasn't the problem tonight.

    I wish he could avoid the T but the fire that he has sure translates well to the rest of his game as he is an intense competitor

    Man, there would be hundreds more technical fouls called if that got called consistently. Can't blame Ejim for unclear and inconsistent officiating standards.

    All he said was "yeah, gimme that." Can't blame him for getting a technical without saying anything out of line.

    "Yeah, gimme that!" was the foul language that got him T'd? Are we going to start calling technicals on players shouting "woo hoo!" next?

    Yep, our current three guards (not Kane) do not appear to be any road graders. How many layups has Matt and Naz scored this year. Monte looks pretty good, but we will miss Kane. He may be tougher to replace than Ejim as we have McKay and Nader.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    How about you blame our useless bench for not scoring any points? Melvin go a technical for **** I see in every ******* game. You can blame him all you want, you are still wrong.
    Spot on with Kane though
