To be fair to Vogt, he played quite a bit better in the second half. But the Diarra/Scott lineup was in for the majority of our run.

We've been using Diarra as Scott's backup at the 4, but right now he looks a lot more comfortable at the 5. His defense is elite at the 5, but playing the 4 he tends to make more mental errors (overhelping, getting too tight to guys on the perimeter, not getting into rebounding position as well). I expect Diarra to learn the 4 spot eventually, but his lack of basketball experience shows when he plays it now.

Will this be the game we look back on should we squeak in the tournament? I would say no if we finish strong and are comfortably in. But if we squeak, this will be the one. One thing for sure, our trajectory right now is very good. Our guys are settling into their roles especially Cland in taking the ball up which is how it should be. We live and die by him. Great to see Harvey’s confidence I was hoping this would be his break out game, in which case we would have won by 10. My got says he will have one this season - hopefully sooner rather than later.

This team is being carried by the upperclassmen. Jarron Cumberland is a difference maker. Very High basketball iq. Tre has stepped up, team leader and kieth williams has been on the brink all season to having a very solid yr the guy is setting himself up for a very solid senior showing if he doesnt catch flame in this 2nd half and bolts. Bearcats have a pretty servicable short rotation thats starting to bring it. Might as well bank on these guys and continue the tournament streak. May see the postseason after all big win for the upperclassmen happy for them

Great to see Harvey getting a lot of run. We didn't back down and we didn't quit. Another game with very hot shooting to start the game for the other team and we took it on the chin and kept playing. Fantastic claw back!! Hell they had to go Mike Tyson on us they were getting so frustrated...LOL! Jareau may as well fake an injury next time at UC

hell the F yes!! back in the mix

Shout out to the crowd as well. Sounded great even over the TV so I'm sure it was wild in person

Diarra played major minutes and gave great energy as part of the run that got us back in the game (he looks a lot more comfortable playing defense at the 5 spot than at the 4 spot). Zach Harvey also gave his biggest contribution of the season in our biggest game of the season.

We held Houston to 7 points over the last 11:31 of the game, including them having a drought of over 10 minutes without a made field goal. In fact, they had just one made field goal in the last 11:31, with the other 5 points coming off FT's.
Keith took a while bc he was out for a chunk of time during the middle of the first half. He was playing well early, then gone for a long stretch while jaevin and woods played. He played the whole second half and saved the game.

Ok I didn’t think we were coming back. But great comeback.

Man it’s hilarious on the AAC board with the excuses that are coming up with about the bite.

Best coaching I've seen from Brannen so far. He used MAW, Harvey and Diarra length to perfection. If Harvey starts playing with confidence that makes us best team in league. I'll like see small ball line up of Scott Jarron KW Jaevin Harvey.
