    Outplayed them in Hilton, obviously, and we outplayed them today other than 6 minutes, which were an utter disaster. Hope we get them again in KC, because we will beat them there too.

    LW absolutely killed us tonight. And Lards 5 minute contribution didn’t help

    Too many dumb threes chucked up in the second half. Could have won this one. Tough loss, but win in Oxford this weekend and the team will be okay.

    We choked for sure. But I’ll give Kansas credit, they adjusted and stepped up at home

    More times than not LW has been a liability this season.

    Not sure his absence from the starting lineup is just because of the injury...

    Would love to have seen how the game played out if he doesn't throw it into the stands on that fastbreak and instead uses his athleticism to go right at Lawson one on one. Worst case scenario there, he gets fouled and goes to the line to shoot for a lead.

    Kansas beat us by doing what we needed to do. Get to the rim.
    They made that huge run with basically nothing but layups.
    Instead, we decided to chuck contested threes, when we were in bonus.

    Steve might be loyal to a fault. Hopefully he figures out the rotation the next month+ because it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

    Haliburton shouldn't be allowed to leave the game. We just play better when he's in the game, even when he doesn't touch the ball.

    We are. But that 6 min stretch killed us.

    I’m a Prohm guy but Bill Self abused him in the second half with all of those adjustments. It’s why he’s one of the best in the game.

    Proud of the effort. We were the better team for 30+ mins. But that gym is a tough one.

    Unfortunately that’s been true. The ball gets stuck in his hands in an otherwise (mostly) unselfish team. He’d be better served to play with the rest of the team and let the shots come to him - they’d clearly be there.

    We have a really solid team. We can win quite a few games, just need to play a little smarter.

    Wigg might really be regretting coming back at this point.
    Also, this team just hates to dive into the paint. We were in the bonus, drive. Stop just chucking 3's
