    17 of 47 from the floor, 5 of 20 from 3pt land, 11 of 17 from the charity stripe and 19 turnovers....I thought this team worked on it's offense during the off season? BACK UP THE TRUCK. I have seen enough...3rd game in a row that I have turned the game off in the first half....

    I know I’m in LaLaland here but maybe we’ll pull a Providence from two years ago. We’ll completely suck in the non-conference but play well in the BE. How? We’ll get Hodges, Tate, & most of Nze back and guys will play much better.

    In four of our six games, we've averaged:
    • Pts: 52.5
    • FG%: 33.5%
    • 3FG%: 28.7%
    • FT%: 69.9%
    • TOs: 16.75
    We had Thompson for three of them and Nze for about half of them. I don't think Hodges or Tate are going to magically turn these numbers around either. The offense is shockingly bad regardless of who's out on the floor. We have who we have. Our roster shouldn't be and isn't this inept offensively from a skills perspective, but they're not being put into positions to succeed. We've had teams with much less talent in the past perform lightyears better than this year's team, injuries or not.

    I expected harris to make a jump, golden to actually average 12 a game, Thompson to actually average double digits.

    Bolden has been a brite spot of the bench though

    Hey I will agree to this. I got into the game big time towards the end hoping and hoping.

    Was cheering in our taproom here and my employees def did not understand what was going on

    Well, it's a nice thought, but for the time being my Rose color glasses are off. I just took Butler tickets off my Xmas list.

    I don’t understand why our “bigs” are shooting so many 3s..

    golden 7 3PA, 17 FGA (41% volume)
    Groce: 21 3PA, 33 FGA (64% volume)
    Wilmoth: 9 FGA, 18 FGA (50% volume)

    I will give wilmoth credit and he’s been hitting them at 50% but still.

    Fair enough. I posted plenty of times but I always thought Bolden got a really bad rap for being forced to do things he shouldn’t have been asked to do.

    I still don’t expect him to lead the team in scoring, but his success in a more limited role doesn’t surprise me.

    That CAN be a product of good offense. Most of Wilmoth’s are in the flow, and he has a good shot. The problem occurs when your big guys are below average shooters and/or don’t take 3s in the flow of offense. Hence, yes, it is a problem.

    Butler’s schedule on their website showed me that we won this game 57-50, and that our record is 4-2. Looks like the stupidity in this program goes all the way to the middle

    Groce is shooting way to many three in my opinion but then again if he drives he can’t hit free throws

    I expected a bit more from groce and haven’t seen it yet

    Also I expected bolden to score well off the bench, it’s a perfect role for him.

    I just expected other players to be scoring more than him.

    He has been solid and actually has shown some emotion on he floor as well, very happy with his play
