AJ came up limping there...doubt the announcers noticed or care, too busy blowing white Bob Lanier
The Paulsen trolls will use what as an excuse? Injuries, A10 too tough?
I will say, even those tools are coming around!
This is what happens every game. Whatever Paulsen is asking them to do on defense just isn’t working. At some point, the other teams is going to go on a run. Our guys panic and start tossing up trash hoping to get back into it, but really it only fuels the other teams run and then it all just collapses. Wash, rinse, repeat.
If XJ fumbling the ball out of bounds is not a summary of how George mason basketball is this year I don’t know what is
Well said. Sadly we are not at rock bottom yet.
This is a team that barely scored 60 against Fordham in OT...
Yes. It is sad we are not at rock bottom yet. For some reason.
What excellent FT shooting as well tonight
Rock bottom is losing to Fordham in the last game of the season and then again in the PIG. If that happens, Paulsen better not get another year.
Down 13 and missed 9 FTs...I know you can't be expected to make all of them, but you make even 5 or 6 of those 9 misses and you've actually got a shot here.
I saw mason blow the game against Fordham 2 years ago in person. I’d be pleasantly surprised if they win this year.
Just wanted to point this out one more time....5 or 6 more made FTs and this is a one possession game. And we don't have to take any desperation 3s to try to tighten the game up in that last minute.
My level of apathy means I haven't followed this that closely amd won't bother looking it up, but am I correct that, if men's college basketball was played in quarters, we have an absolutely abysmal third quarter every game?
Close... but pretty much
Chalk up another L for the DP train.
No dogs on this team except for Javon and Hartwell.
Is our press even slightly annoying the opponent?
Lul Dave said before he wants to play inside out. BY George should of pounced on him for not ever having a legit big man. But no....newsflash fellas, you can let loose on him. He wont be here much longer. In over his head.
Feels like the wrong thing to focus on. We've been under 1ppp in 6 of 9 games in conference. Free throws help, sure, but Bonnies also missed 9. AJ (0-4) and Oduro (1-3) are the only guys who had bad days at the line. Our season average is right about 70%, which would have us make 3 extra today, which wouldn't have made much of a difference.
We are getting MURDERED from 3. 8-27 today and allowed 7-19. Still haven't held a conference opponent to under 35% from deep. That's impossibly bad. We could get away with the crappy shooting out of conference because we actually defended the perimeter pretty well, but now we can't shoot and we're giving up great looks. It's bad all over.
We always get murdered from 3. Not just this season either.
Yes. I’ve mentioned the bad defense.
But even 3 more made FTs might have made a difference. If the game were at 65-69 with a minute left instead of 62-69, do we have to keep jacking up 3s to try to get back into it? Or do we foul, get the misses (they missed that front end of one-and-one right after we might have pulled within 4) and try to get a better shot? The margin is what it is because we missed three desperation 3s in the last minute hoping for a miracle comeback.
Of course, they might have just kept getting layups at that point, but we were in the midst of holding them to 8 points in the last 7 minutes leading up to that point so who knows?
