Another game in Nashville tomorrow. If we can limit the turnovers and get a normal performance from Anthony and Tevin we should be ok. Can't afford to lose any more.

Absolutely! A win today, with a Peay loss at Belmont (which I think will happen), would put us in the
driver seat with 3 weeks to go.

A win tonight, coupled with a loss for peay at Belmont would mean that if we were to split with peay we would still be in control of our own destiny.



That’s right isn’t it? We would still have to play EKU assuming they’re still winning, but we would be in line for the NIT auto bid and the one seed in Evansville

Is there a conference that has worse referees? Not just against us but both sides. They just can’t get calls right. They call too much then too little. I’ve never seen more inconsistency at any level of basketball.

Inconsistency is the issue. You can’t adjust to inconsistent whistles.

Watch a women's game. You will see more consistency, but it's all bad.

About to see what this team is made of with our main ball handler fouled out. Just don’t let Eaves bring it up.

Only two players in double figures. Hard to win that way. Thank goodness for Tevin. Good to see Gilmore help KJ out off the bench.
