    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.

    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.

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

    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

    the positive is Fred knows what to work on in practice for the next 5 days. free throws, more free throws, and then some more for good measure. and then when they are done go shoot some more. not joking

    Wide open 3s given up. Horrible defense. Georges wouldn't stop shooting. Naz was on the bench when we needed him. None of our 3s would fall. Got out rebounded by 17. Gave up 19 rebounds to one player. I've never been more disappointed in what I saw in one game then what I saw tonight.

    I'd rather see him focus on boxing out. 2nd chance points have killed us the last two games.

    Sad thing was the three misses were usually pretty poor. Georges missed the rim several times.
