Except for Iowa getting hot at the end of the half, I think we played pretty well. More fun to trash the team though.

RE: Iowa game thread
We were up 31-22 at one point. For those of you that’re bad at a math, that means Iowa went on a 27-6 run since that point. Sad. Expected.

Yep! Not losing this one because of their three point shooting.

They've only made more than us. However, we've missed 9 threes to their 3 missed threes.

Have to stop making empty trips down the court.

Biggest problem I see is that we have nothing off the bench. 0 points. 6 of the 12 fouls came off the bench. When you are playing your third game in three days and one of them was an overtime game less than 16 hours ago, you need help from your bench.

Another long season ahead of us. I guess we're officially a football school now.

Biggest problem I see? William Lee 3-10 from the field. Several misses were those empty trips when we had a lead. If he would quit thinking he was Donyell Marshall or Robert Horry, he might be able to really help this basketball team. I am SICK of watching him fire jumpers from all over when he should get his lanky ass underneath and get to work.

I have been a fan of his since his senior season in high school but enough is enough. Either play like you want to win, and not just shoot, or get the hell off the court.

Sorry. Had to be said.

I agree completely. A lot of people here blame Ehsan for a lot, but to me, his biggest sin is building this team around a player that has shown he has the potential to be great, except he doesn't want to play 100% all the time.

Lee is one of the biggest disappointments I can think of since I've been a UAB fan. He's basically the same player he was as a freshman. Not much growth in his game. Half time the time he's a ghost. Very underwhelming for his potential.

I agree. Lots of blame to go around. A lot of it falls on the coach, but certainly the players, particularly Lee, are to blame.

Ehsan with a technical. Upset with the officiating and free throw discrepancy. Announcer listened in to the conversation and referee told ehsan to never again insinuate that the referees are favoring one team over the other.

Lee is one of the most physically gifted players we've ever had at UAB. Unfortunately he lacks that killer instinct that makes good players great.
Cokley has been a beast this year, and his foul troubles seem to have faded somewhat.

I am excited about what we are bringing in next year, but unless Lee suddenly decides he wants to be the best player on the court, this is going to be another long, frustrating season.

I said last year that Ehsan should not be judged as a coach until after Lee is gone. This team want reach it's potential until he is gone

Didn't Vaden have the same issue in his senior season? Seems like I remember him falling off after a summer of NBA workouts, too.

Lee didn't fall off. He never really had the requisite growth in his game to have a "fall off." He is he same player he was as a freshman

Difference is there has not been a falling off for Lee. He has been consistently inconsistent.

We became a football school the day Bill Clark took over. He will actually build us a strong program.
