Always a fun game to go to, it's the first time we're getting to see the Racers live this year.

There's generally 400-500 Tech fans at this one so plenty of great seats always available lol.

Why dont we play zone more often? It seems to make more stops than our m2m does? i dont know why he only pulls it out at the end of halves or when we're desperate, same for full court pressing or traps.

Whew! Thought I would feel better getting out with a win. Still a bit nauseated. We’ve got some soul searching to do.

Not sure why we don’t press more often as well. When we’ve done it in the past it seems we have been very successful. It fires up our guys and really gets the best out of our players. I’m not a coach though.

There's only one bad thing about winning this game. There is likely to be no "come to Jesus" meeting. Yeah, a win is a win, but this one should have the coaches seriously evaluating their performance.

I think the problem may lie with Morant trying to do so much. I love him and happy he is here, but lately we've become a one-dimensional team and that's easy to shut down. Nine turnovers from your point guard against the No. 320 team in Div. 1 is bad.

I'm a glass half full kinda guy. Hard to win on the road. There are no easy wins left on our schedule.

We're back in a tie for 1st place.

A win is a win.

Learn from this game and improve.

He's having to do more because every one else is standing and watching. The ball is in his hands 90% of the time. That's going to lead to turnovers. Would love to see a run down of how much actual game time the ball is in his hands. Nobody else is stepping up.

This is the point of the season where you usually see improvement from someone but we've actually gone 3 steps back except for Gilmore who gets the game ball tonight. Great effort by him. Everyone else was still on the bus.

9 rebounds 5 points and I’m not sure how many blocks? He hasn’t got to play with the starters much so he should keep improving as he gets comfortable.

I'm happy with Gilmore's progress. Part of his future progress should include not taking any 20 foot jumpers unless the shot clock is down to 2. Seriously, he made a difference tonight with his activity in the paint. I hope he keeps getting more savvy as his floor time increases.

One more attempt at being positive.
Who’s undefeated in the league this year?
We won tonight.
Let’s get back to the bank and fix some things.
Let’s get better.
Nobody said it would be easy!
