that's a terrible effort by Jordan to end the half. The team absolutely needs him to be better than 30% from the line, that's middle school level.

Terrible effort? No - excellent effort. Poor execution.

A terrible effort at shooting free throws. He almost airballed it.

Good thing he's over 32% then huh? Regardless getting to the rim in 4 seconds is not a "terrible effort". Unsurprisingly he's not a perfect player, if that means losing .7 points per game or whatever from FT shooting and we get everything else he brings to the table in fine with that.

We were cost 2 points at the end of the half. If it was a 2 shot foul, the basket should've counted. They only had 9 team fouls, so if it was no shot, it would've been 1-and-1. VERY costly error on the refs part.

Jordan is so good at so much...except...you know...the whole point of basketball.  He's such a bad shooter.  It's so sad because he's really next level at everything else.

Watching the halftime junk. Oats yelling during practice, “That’s a problem! We are a step slow!” Exhibit A (I hate to say it) is Jeremy Harris. Relaxed isn’t getting it done, so how about stepping it up a bit cause you’ve got nothing to lose. That Harris nonchalant pass that Walker stole and scored on is inexcusable for a senior.

I also struggle to understand how a team that was making wave with their top notch suffocating D has now gone back to back games seeming like giving a damn on D and being a seive.  What happened?  If they put up even a decent effort on D going forward they probably win...but...damn.

Harris always strikes me as a lazy player that relies on his smooth shot, except his smooth shot has been off more than on this year in most games.  Apparently he often wins the hard hat so he IS doing hustle stuff, so maybe he's just one of those guys whose body language looks like crap but he's actually going hard?

I guess so. I like the kid, but that pass stunk. Hopefully his shot starts falling soon...like in about 15 minutes.

Apparently we have forgotten how to play offense. We are not getting those open looks we knew how to create and that's causing some terrible shots

The offense consists of someone getting the ball and trying to take on the entire KSU team while the rest of the Bulls watch.  No ball movement.  It's slow, and uninspired.  Polar opposite of how this team normally plays.  On defense they're letting guys absolutely blow by them.  No focus, no effort.

Man, you guys are tough...knocking everything that we do. Based on the comments,  you'd think we were down 30, as opposed to a 1 possession game on the road against a darn good team.

Was anything we said inaccurate?

Yes. "No focus, no effort "...way wrong.

Well I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

I thought the point of basketball was to keep the other team from scoring... 😉

At look at that.  Williams can be effective when he doesn't try and do his Steph Curry impression.

These guys are playing with lots of effort,  yes I wholeheartedly disagree when you say they aren't.

I have a feeling he is going to make a big jump next year. It's good to see the freshman contributing in close conference games.

UB will need to hit 1-1s. Go figure, after 50 fouls there are only 28 fouls tonight.
