    It's still ridiculous that in college basketball we don't know the tenth of seconds left on the shotclock when its at 1.

    Doesn't excuse that play regardless though.

    That's now two inbounds passes under our own basket that have led to fast break dunks for TAMU. WTF???

    Not that it really matters, but we might actually win an opening tip with Wilmoth. Today Golden didn’t even jump. Just stood there and let AtM tip it back.

    How can Chuck HAVE NO CLUE what to do when he gets double teamed? Oops another turnover on an OB play. Groce missses two FTs.

    When’s the last time we passed it down on the block?

    Golden touching the ball in the post hasn't exactly encourage anyone to throw it in there more often.

    Golden has looked this year like he is playing with cement in his shoes. Running slowly, can't jump at all, slow to the screen etc...like just something has zapped any sense of athleticism he's had.

    Wilmoth needs the Kam Woods treatment. He should almost never box anyone out. Just go get the ball. Boxing him out just takes him away from being around the ball. Turn him loose. He's better tracking down balls than putting his body on someone.

    If TA&M doesn't score a point the rest of the game, I don't think we will win.

    Wilmoth and Taylor were trying to get us going

    Crazy I never would of thought bolden would be are leading scorer for this team

    Thompson makes such bad jump passes

    The team just doesn’t mesh right now and I think the players know it

    Yup and he’s not strong enough to box out that handicapping him.

    Luke Brown is the missing piece to this puzzle.

    We’ll true but better him down low and passing back out than getting the ball behind the 3 point line. Besides, it’s about ball movement. It never gets inside the 3 until 5 seconds left on the clock when someone is driving. That’s incredibly easy to guard.

    There's a lot of promise there. Kid has a quick first step off the dribble. I don't know if he should be starting ahead of Bolden though.

    Two drives like that means the D will sag next time - hopefully off Bolden.

    It's why they need Nze and he's a pretty essential piece to this puzzle. Golden just isn't playing well. He's turned it over numerous times the past few games trying to kick it back out. It's been a disaster almost every time it's gone into him. They have no threat down low at the moment.
