I keep having flashbacks of the first half at Tenn. We won and that's what matters.

We had 8 team steals. That’s a good sign.

Belmont got out rebounded by 23 in their 2 wins this week. Beating the 2 teams with the best OVC records while getting destroyed on the boards. Bet that doesn’t happen often.

It makes sense that we out rebounded Belmont by a lot in that game and they won. They didn't have to get as many defensive rebounds because we just gave them the ball without shooting it most of the time.

Belmont is the type of team that would stand there and hold the ball the entire game if it weren't for a shot clock. :rofl:

Hate to confuse anyone with facts, but Belmont leads the OVC in scoring at over 80 points a game. I don’t like Belmont but to act like they play stall ball is silly.

Tevin Brown can hit some amazing clutch, 3 points shots with someone in his face. Ja, Cam or Isiah didn't consistently do that. That was an ulcer game for fans and coaches last night. Cant believe we got out of there with a win.

I honestly anticipated a loss before the game. Seeing the way we have handled the ball lately, the adjustments teams have made on the guards to create turnovers, and the athleticism and size that Tennessee State has (arguably one of the best in the league), I thought we would have lost that game by double digits. I thought McMahon really did a great job in preparing them for this game after a loss.

I still think Noah has got to get in more minutes each game, if just to hold serve for awhile. If Daquan had fouled out with more than five minutes left, I'm not so sure we would have left with a win.

Based on what? He was in about a minute vs Belmont and 10 seconds in I was yelling get him out.

Glad to see Holliday get some love from Neal and Coach in the post game show. He contributes more than he gets credit for, especially in a short bench.

Noah HAS to get better against OVC competition and Daquan needs less minutes. Neither is going to happen with the current plan.

I know minutes are earned in practice, but that theory may have to be stretched with Chico out, possibly to the end of the season. Just my opinion.

I think it’s the first time Quanny has fouled out. He had to be just worn out for him to be going 40 minutes a game. When we get back to lower level teams, Noah has to get minutes. I guess Chico is more upset than anybody, but his situation sure has been a disappointment

Certain players will not be back next year. We have more players signed than our 13 scholarship limit. There is a reason the bench warmers don’t play.

We got very close to a situation where Noah had to play, no choice in the matter. We could see that again soon. Chico will probably be weak if he ever comes back.

Having one true point guard is a real problem. TSU did a really good job last night creating mismatches with our guards around their basket and that was a major reason why the situation presented itself like.it did. Expect to see that more.

Better to light a candle and put Noah in more than to curse the guardless. Holiday's defensive effort was a real lynch pin in the win, but he just isn't a true point guard. It was downright frightening having him in the game with a 3 point lead and having him potentially bring up the ball with his 45 percent free throw percentage.
