Someone needs to get on the ball at the station and turn off the music online. I wanna hear the game.

20 point win. I know nothing about Southern U, but a 20 point win looks promising. :clap:

Our perimeter defense looked really good at times. Missing Ja showed with how tentative we were to push the ball in transition offense. That will happen when you lose the #2 nba draft pick. I am spoiled as a racer fan to complain about a 20 point win on our first game. We will be ok. Fix the uptempo and play under control (way to many lazy passes turned into turnovers). Lots of YOUNG talent. Will be good come OVC play. Hope we can hang with Tennessee Tuesday night. I’ll be watching either way. Go Racers!

Lots of positives out there, especially on defense. We racked up 13 turnovers in the first half. After we hit 12 points, the offense was stuck for quite a while. As others have said, not having Mr. Everything out there requires a bit of an adjustment. I have confidence this team is going to be solid and contend for the #1 spot in the conference. Maybe we will get to see them take it decisively. It's quite possible, no matter what the rest of the conference think about it.

On a side note, Cowart is certainly not ready to contribute defensively yet. I think it's a given that he's not in condition yet to play longer stretches, but he could not keep his man in front of him.

High amount of turnovers but I was expecting that with this group playing their first D-1 game together. I’m sure that will improve.

We have a long way to go. We still have to find out who is going to lead the offense.

This game reminds me a lot of last year's Prairie View A&M game. Very sloppy due to their high intensity ball pressure defense. Southern was definitely not as patient offensively as PVAM was (btw, PVAM turned out to be pretty decent team last year after a horrible season the year before, as could be Southern). So before we begin to compare who we are now compared to who we were in March, let's reflect a bit about that game.

On another positive note, I didn't see Sean Woods assault anyone tonight. :thumbup:

20 turnovers=unacceptable,mostly because of lazy passing against a quick defense.I did think that we played well defensively,especially early in the game.Not sure who our pg is,both Smith and Chico had some good and bad tonite.Would like to see more of Kamba,but hardly any pt in a easy win doesnt bode well for him.

I’m concerned about our PG play. UT will come after our ball handlers with everything they have after watching this game.

No assault but he did shout out "block out!" just as our players were about to shoot a free throw on multiple occasions. This guy is bush league and will never be anything else.

Second half Chico was much better than first half Chico. But yes, we are struggling to find consistency at the spot and it kinda surprises me.

It will be a long Tuesday night if our guards play like they did last night.

Quanny looked a lot better in 1st half than Chico’s 4 TOs in 4 minutes and Quanny didn’t look good himself but IMHO he looked the better of the two last night. We will need them both this season.

The PG position has the highest learning curve in CBB.

We’ve become very spoiled with freshman point guards like Sip, Cam and Ja. Most programs would be extremely fortunate to have one guy like that in a decade who could step in as freshman at that level and we were blessed with three.

Didn’t see last nights game. Concerned about only scoring 69 against a SWAC team. We will get better. Wish we played a couple more games before we play Tenn.

Maybe Ja can come back for a few games during Grizzlies organization ordered rest periods.

Our PG play will be much better before OVC play rolls around I’m sure. But, could Brown be effective at point if we needed him to play there?

I kind of figured the 2nd team we played in the Bahamas would beat Southern handily. We scored mid 80’s against them. 69 last night. Maybe a few jitters and unforced errors last night from our freshmen playing first regular season home game.
