    @coit I haven't tried that. I don't think I can with this older Sony Google tv.

    It's too bad that he gives up 3 on one end to only score 2 on the other.

    Can’t believe that Jose let that big guy pick his pocket.

    Good win. Cole with a nice performance. Hope Alvarado isn't too banged up.

    A win is a win. We will need a better game out Banks and Jose on Saturday to pick up a conference win.

    Some good things to take away from the second half. AD and Cole both had another solid game. Although Upstate shot awful a win is a win for this team.

    On to Wake and ACC play.

    Pastner said Jose hurt his ankle in practice yesterday. Definitely not himself.

    Why didn't we rest Jose for the conference game this weekend?

    If it is the same ankle that he injured a few weeks ago, I assume that he’s been playing on a bad leg for awhile now.

    May need to start Cole ahead of Wright. I wish Mo could have been redshirted last year, he is too raw.

    Alvarado’s durability is going to be an ongoing issue due to his size and the physicality of his game.

    The entire team looks like it’s never seen the inside of a weight room.

    Congrats to the team on its last win of the year.

    I haven't really watched this year, waste of time. Maybe next year but probably not

    There should never be such a thing as a 'major' rebuild for a P5 basketball program.

    Every year is a major rebuild for Duke and they start the year #1.

    A major rebuild, in college basketball terms, assumes that a team has nothing to work with. The Dukes and Kentuckys of the world are factory schools that never have to rebuild because they have incoming talent waiting in the wings to pick up where the previous group left off. Any P5 basketball program worth a öööö ought to be able to recruit/coach well enough to make it into a 64 team post season tournament. Those that aren't/can't/don't on a regular basis either suck, or don't care. Competitive "rebuilds" shouldn't take longer than 2 years, as you only need to fill 5-7 spots with better than average players, AND have a good staff that can mold the individual talent in to a cohesive productive product. It's one thing to be in the Mid-American Conference and fail, but to be in the "premier" basketball conference in the country and fail is a completely different animal and inexcusable.

    Good response. Therefore, Tech sucks or doesn't care - or both!
