Well - that's going to leave a scar
Nope. GT lost due to losing composure when Alvarado picked up the technical and then not running in any offense into the post.
That is weak. We are going to lose because we played like garbage and stopped attacking the rim/post.
3.2 seconds was enough time to do more than throw it down the court. We could have done something that resembled a play.
They were going to foul again. I don't care about that as much as making that 2nd FT. I think our best chance was to put two big bodies down low and try to rebound an intentional miss.
If you tell the ref before the ball is inbounded that you are going to foul, why is that not an intentional foul?
Our best player is our point guard. Our point guard lost the game for us.
Another nightmare outing on the road.
But at least they scheduled it early enough in the day so we can watch the football team in the ACC championship game tonight
And then we fell apart!
I’ll need to check the numbers but I think we shot 50% in second half and somehow blew a lead at the same time.
I know we lost, and that sucks, but I don’t know how anyone can look at this team and not see improvements in skill and depth.
At some point we have to recruit players who can shoot.
And drive to the hoop and finish.
and create mismatches
and draw doubleteams
and make an entry pass to the post
and make a layup
“Been close but no cigar” in dozens and dozens of games the last 15 years. Gotta win way more than they do. No moral victories anymore.
This is how I feel.
