We have reached the “everyone just jack it up” portion of the game.

Twice Forbes has tried an off balance shot hoping for a foul. We get into those kind of rhythms sometimes

Cross missed his third 3. Enough already. Stop taking them.

Getting our doors blown off.

They couldn’t score 48 points in a half if you let them play 5-4. Somehow we allow them to do it.

13-21 from 2 and down 13. That’s really hard to do (unless you are 2-12 from 3, 3-8 from the line and only force 4 turnovers).

James, 3 shots and 5 points.

Cook, 8 shots and 5 points.

Why does Cook shoot so much? He is not close to the player he was last year. Hopefully, he can get his game going but I have seen enough this year that tells me he should not be taking so many shots.

And James should shoot more. A lot more.

would you, dear reader, be surprised to learn that Wichita was the AAC's worst 3 point shooting team heading into this game? One of our many services rendered.

This is unwatchable.

Sit Cook down.

We could have this down to 2-4 points if we had better players.

Unlistenable with Mark Adams on the call.

Better ball movement and open looks. Eureka.

They are destroying us inside.

They are playing like we did in the first half. Too many 3s and not getting it inside. They are now 8-27 from 3 for the game.

Our ball movement has been much better. Why can’t we do this for 40 minutes?

Crunch time and we get a Days jumper and an RJ forced 3. This is why we are 12-7.

Guys are exhausted and giving so many open looks. Down 5.

Can’t get a call either.

They didn't score a point for 7 minutes and we only managed 8 points. They got hot again and we're down 5, 2:26 to go

Cross may have single-handedly lost this game. For every good play he makes, there are two that he has no business trying.

They shoot and go play defense without trying to get an offensive rebound

Only 4 fouls. Could be an issue if need to put them on the line.

Forbes needs to be his usual self at the line.
