    Dude, every productive minute we squeeze out of Calixte is an accomplishment.

    Polite clearly not ready. But to be fair about Haidara, everyone looks like a 4 in DP's offense.

    Hate to say it but I don’t think AJ is gonna be the dude for us this year consistently. Just doesn’t seem to be ready offensively.

    Two games in a row that Hartwell has given us a big boost in the second half. He's definitely found his groove coming off the bench. Now we have to find a way to get XJ to produce more points as our starting PG.

    Nah, it's gonna be miller, and that's okay. AJ's best suited as a 2nd option. Having Miller bumps everybody down a notch, where they're much more effective.

    AJ's a good 2nd option. Oduro's a nice 3rd frontcourt scorer. Calixte is a perfectly reasonable emergency big.

    Smart play by Greene. Refs have been calling it ticky-tack all game long. Senior play.

    Was just about to say this. Seems to have found his confidence/role coming off the bench.

    Kinda like Paulsen taking out AJ here down the stretch. He’s having a rough day and the Calixte/Odoro lineup has been fine on both sides of the court.

    mmm, He's done ok today, but AJ is a way way way better player than Calixte.

    Oduro and Calixte need to clean up the turnovers (9 combined), but their contributions along with Hartwell have been key with AJ, Kolek and Johnson all struggling.

    Refs ticky tack honestly to our advantage

    Timberlake scored 12 points in second half while being guarded by kolek

    Greg oduro lineup worked for a cut because oduro guarded the Towson big that stayed on perimeter. Only gave up 1 3 pointer and 1 layup from his man in second half. Greg played stalwart d mostly inside

    XJ with two really A+ passes to oduro during his run

    We love to compliment kolek stroke but it was very much a line drive today I hope that changes back to what it has looked like

    Aj completely out of control and missed about 6 layups

    Towson best player got a concussion and huge cut right under his eye #2 and sat the rest of the game with a towel over his head looking down. Not sure why he even returned to bench.

    Daddy causes heartburn but I’m willing to deal with it because he hustles like a mofo

    Maybe 150 people total today. Would be interested in official number

    Concessions suck which makes sense so eat before games

    Ushers were great per usual

    Will take the win and hope everyone has a merry Christmas

    make a mofo free throw please that is my Christmas wish

    Even worse because Greene turned the ball over and gave them the margin too.

    I had it in a 3 game parlay.

    I also had the bowl games - Georgia Southern -6.5 (win) and the under in FAU vs Memphis at 51. If it goes over, then the missed free throws don’t matter. If it goes under, then I’ll be pissed.

    Baby steps. Overall better than the other day but if the FTs turn into a trend were really in trouble.

    I think just the lack of a goto offensive player is just going to doom us to really poor stretches for a long while.

    Flip good side is not sure how you game plan/focus on slowing down one guy for us. Lots of guys *could* spark us any given day...no way this team has too much of a set rotation.

    Greene/Wilson consistency might be the whole key to doing okay to good in the a 10.
