This is pretty much the same team we've had the last 2 years with less defensive length. Poor shooting, bad turnovers, and not sure we hit on any of the portal players..and only one of our heralded recruiting class is contributing. At the end of the day is so far we still really lack scoring.

The most overhyped TJ team might end up being the worst
Yep...this is a bad team. There is almost no basketball IQ, just hurling their bodies at the other team and hoping something happens. The lack of finesse over the last two years was sometimes made up for by smart defending, but this team doesn't have that. They just have a lot of out-of-control energy, turn it over all the time, chuck the ball up with no skill. This could be a really rough season. The guys look lost out there.

This weekend has left zero wiggle room for conference play. .500 won’t get us in.
Big 12 overall probably a bit weaker this year (thank goodness) don't have to play at KU. All I got.

Hoping Pavs and Milan can find their 3 point range.

Yeah, it's off backboard before the block. That's textbook and should be an easy confirm.
