I just feel as a team, we need to work harder to get the bigs touches on the block. They can score if we get them the ball down there.

Seriously, Dre missed two lay-ups along with two 3 pt shots, which were superwide open. Throw in several of Tyler's wide open misses and a couple of bunnies that Mason and Miles left on the table and I'd say we were even.
Accept the win and the way in which it came as par for the course this season, nothing's been easy for this team, but the vast majority of the time they've found a way to get it done.
That was a pretty awful display of Mr. Naismiths game by both teams. Just gross. Glad we won. That is all.
I hope the calling blocks when guys move under players who have already left their feet. There are so many things that are done in the name of safety (like the flagrant foul rules), but I see this a being a bigger potential risk. The officiating has evolved to the point that they often call fouls based on where the drive started than whether or not the defender moved underneath.
This game is pretty much what we expected right? Tech is going to battle you all night, and without Ryan our offense looked a bit out of sync. Put him in and we probably win by 12-14 or so. Saw him in a boot, I hope that doesn't mean anything more than he is just being very cautious. Tyler was huge, big put backs, was confidant in his shot, and he played good D.
Seth needs to get his offense going, he just seems off. Oh well, hopefully tomorrow we'll have had one under our belt without Kelly and the offense will run more smoothly. Didn't help that Miles was in foul trouble as well, that's two large hurdles to overcome against a solid defensive team, and we battled to the W.
Despite poor field goal shooting, both teams shot well from the line.
Dawkins, Rivers and Curry combined from 3-pt 2-13
Tyler Thornton from 3-pt 3-13
Mason played 37 minutes and had a pretty good stat line which included 12 points, 4-5 FT, 10 rebounds, and 3 blocks; he turned it over 3 times, but the team had only 8 turnovers total.
My favorite part was the part where we won.
My second favorite part was when the Maryland fans bombed the Raycom All-ACC poll and Stoglin and Mosley ended up on the first team.
Well officiated games and no Karl Hess....
Coincidence? Or conspiracy?!
