Unbelievably lucky end for us. Honestly, we should have lost. But happy with a win. Curry won it, then blew it, then won it again.

It may have been ugly. It may have been lucky. But it's a win and a split on the road. MONARCHS WIN!

Exactly. We scored more points than them.

Man, you would marry J-LO and complain that her breasts and her butt are too big! Oh, and also that she doesn't make enough money to support you in the style that you deserve!

Odu basketball is currently much more comparable to fat missy Elliot before she lost the weight than j LO but sure, if you want to compare unwatchable basketball to marrying j lo that’s your prerogative.

RE: Rice weekend
The stats looks pretty even in almost every category except for rebounds. We doubled them up on ORebs. Huge turnaround from yesterday. I saw a lot of hustle and determination on defense. And the offense wasn’t half bad. Just wish we could cut out the mistakes. Traveling, bad passes. Better shot selection though. It looked like Rice was shooting better but it was about even, even 3s.

And even though Evee missed those 2 free throws, they were still 70% from the line. About the same as ODU. If I had to choose one thing that won the game, I would say rebounding getting us more possessions.

Did they intentionally miss the 2nd FT? It looked like it to me. Why wouldn’t they tie and give us 4 seconds to score?

I doubt it. If so, worst strategy ever.

I think you misunderstand the analogy. He is nicely saying he feels a little entitled.

It was a seriously ugly shot.

He choked under pressure. That’s all it was. At least he hit the rim.

I’m getting a little worried about Reece. This was a bad series for him. His shooting has looked horrible. I hope he bounces back next weekend.

And he’s getting shots from 10 feet and closer and throwing up bricks. He has to make those shots.

RE: Rice weekend
My personal opinion is that we have to sink or swim without Green. When he is on the floor, he hurts usmore than He helps us

Your comment following yesterday's game is actually not warranted, at least from the perspective of this one game. You do have a valid point on Green having too many turnovers, but the problem is deeper than just that.

Here's the line on Green from yesterday.

FG 4-9 44%
3PT 2-4 50%
FT 1-1 100%
RB 4
A 2
TO 3
S 1
PTS 11

The point here is that he actually shot the ball very well, but he did turn the ball over three times. But let's look a little closer at the turnovers.

TPMP = turnovers per minute played.

OK, Green had three turnovers in 38 minutes for 0.079 TPMP, but let's compare Green against three of our other players who play significant minutes.

Oliver 4/24 (0.167 TPMP)
Ezikpe 3/19 (0.158 TPMP)
Curry 4/35 (0.114 TPMP)
Green 3/38 (0.079 TPMP)

Green's turnover rate per minute played yesterday was the lowest of these four. So should we sink or swim without the other three also? Obviously, no. The problem is, as a team, we played sloppy ball with 17 turnovers. What we need to do as a team is clean up the turnovers across the board.

Here are the team turnovers for the season with TPMP noted for our key players.

03 Malik Curry 36/374 (0.096 TPMP)
22 Kalu Ezikpe 24/250 (0.096 TPMP)
11 A.J. Oliver II 15/351 (0.043 TPMP)
23 Austin Trice 12/248 (0.048 TPMP)
15 Joe Reece 17/313 (0.054 TPMP)
10 Xavier Green 37/396 (0.093 TPMP)
12 Jaylin Hunter 11/230 (0.048 TPMP)
00 Mekhi Long 2
25 David Strother 4
21 Alfis Pilavios 1
02 Brady O'Connell 1
13 John Shanu 0
Team 4
Total 156

My point is that it is wrong to pick on just Green, particularly after this game and also for the season in general. We have averaged 13 turnovers per game. Curry, Ezikpe and Green are the worst with each turning the ball over roughly once for every 10 minutes played. If JJ can get those three to value the ball similarly to the way Oliver does, our defense can lead this team to a good number of wins.

Oh, and yes, it would be helpful if Green continues to shoot the way he did yesterday.
