Ado struggled for the first 15 minutes and was great after that. Seems to be a theme for him that it takes him a bit to get going. When he's playing well he is our best big man and it's not really...

Newman does a lot of good things in the rebounding and defense department, but on O he doesn't do much (though at least he doesn't take bad threes). I wonder if part of our issue getting it inside...

I preferred Ado on the line over MAW. Figured Ado might at least make one.

Hey, we got a win! Saunders, DDJ, Newman, Davenport and Ado is a solid lineup (when Ado is playing well). The other guys though... MAW has been terrible lately, Lakhin can't stay on the floor,...

MAW has really struggled lately. But with Saunders fouled out what are the other options? Mason? Or a walk-on.

I doubt the coaching staff is telling them to jack up bad threes. But yes, they have to get guys to actually run offense. We've been better about it the last few minutes.

Terry Nelson just said it on the radio (in reference to Ado). "If you can't block shots and you can't rebound, then you can't be in the game, put another guard in."

Edit: It seems like Ado heard...

They are shooting over 50% and beating us on the boards. Something needs to change. What's the point of playing two 7 footers if neither of them can rebound or score on the interior?

Edit: At...

I'd say bad shot selection is more of a symptom of our overall bad offense than it is a main problem.

The problem is we don't run good offense. The ball doesn't move quickly, we rarely have a...

We have plenty of high major level players, the problem isn't we don't have many (if any) guys who would be one of the top guys on a high major team. We've got a bunch of guys who would be the third...

For how much bigger we were, our rebounding wasn't great either. We were around 30% offensive rebound percentage, while they were around 25% OR%. It seems to be the theme under Miller, good to...

Any word on what happened to Newman? He's on the bench in a suit, so must be some sort of injury.

I agree players will have good and bad games. My feeling on a lot of these guys is we know what we have and in the case of Ado, Ody, Newman and MAW that's enough to keep us competitive with most...

I think Ody clearly belongs in that group. He's efficient because he doesn't take bad shots. But the only way he gets the ball in scoring position is put backs on offensive rebounds. We don't run...

We showed that we really only have two play makers on the team, DDJ and Saunders. Lakhin will be one soon, but showed he still needs to get some experience as he had a number of freshman mistakes. ...

We were on the receiving end of some terrible referring, got dominated on the glass and Davenport (and possibly Lakhin) had what will probably be his worst game of the year. Plus we missed at least...

Bad half for us on the offensive end. Davenport was bad, Lakhin was bad, MAW got 3 fouls and Saunders started to wear out because of it.

Yet we are somehow up 4 at half time.

Arkansas following the scouting report, let Newman shoot it as much as he wants.

We are playing solid D so far, but need to work on getting more ball movement of O. Also need to tell Newman not...

It feels weird to say, given that I did not expect us to be this good early on. But I like our chances.

I'm okay with saying Brannen had a great eye for potential, I've said a number of times he'd make a good NBA scout. Just don't let him interact with any of the players.

I'm glad he got us Vik,...

Gotta tell Newman that he's not the guy we want shooting the ball. Especially not with over 10 seconds on the shot clock.
