Guessing inability to convert freethrows.

Hack a Shaq...

He was 2-2 in the game, and that wouldn't explain not playing him before the crunch. Another swing and miss.

The thing about this board is the same as it is with politics. With the Lomax gang they are all in on him being **** all the time. When he isn't, instead of acknowledging it, they mostly ignore it, or give veiled compliments about how he usually sucks.

There is no such thing as taking both sides; it is impossible for people to see good and bad. Take CONFUSED_NEWS; who is the worst of the worst. Clearly, not very bright, he will make 10 posts when Lomax makes a bad play or takes a bad shot, never mind when he has a bad game. He is nowhere to be found when he does anything good.

So, of course I wish Penny would have played Kao more, and of course Lomax has bad games. MY theory on Kao is that the 8-0 run to start the half and us holding a significant lead most of the second half, was the reason why he didn't play in the first 16 minutes or so. Then when things tightened up, he didn't trust him to shoot free throws.

I don't agree with it, but that's what I think was in his head.

One team playing handicapped 03-cloud9

You do know that both total 47 point, right?

And that things went way south when Lomax went out with injury?

Things certainly didn't get better.

I really think we beat UCF if ALo is in the game late.

Also beat UCF if my main man scored 6 instead of just 5 in regulation. Would win by 1 instead of tied for OT.

Just make 1 of those missed shots late in the 4th and maybe a W.

He'll catch fire next game....

I really don't know why Penny didn't play him early in the half, but we did create a healthy lead without him in the game until everything started to go wrong. I do agree that percentage-wise, he's a bad bet when the opponent transitions to desperation fouls. Believe me, I very much like Kao, but he's still a work in progress. If he can figure out the rebounding, I see him migrating to a starting role.

Regarding the OP, yeah. Enough said.

Penny found out he is Minotts cousin?

Penny may have wanted someone who can rebound in the game. There's that.

Don’t need much rebounding when the other team is making all their 3s

You might get some traction with that if it was based on reality and not hyperbole. Who would have guessed? Rebounding is unimportant. Thank you for the wisdom.

Franklin's play to close the game and him grabbing 6 rebounds hopefully helps him get in the groove soon because the team's going to need better production from the off guard spot vs real competition....

Preach Brother... seems many of our fans don't understand the duties of a 2-guard.

Gr8 stuff here guys....Although I'm NOT as versed on applying stats to the game and how they directly rel8 to the outcome, It's tolerable/understandable how "casual" fans CAN'T decipher the effectiveness (or lack thereof) when it comes to the performance of Alo and how his inabilities instills restrictions on the team to become more of a problem for defenses to contain....

OTOH, It is quite puzzling 01-wingedeagle that Penny continues to overlook the ineptness of players such as Alo, Jayden, Chandler and won't allow better/more capable players to evolve and crescendo his team to higher heights....Alo needs to backup Kendrick, Along with the other east guys would perform better as backups, especially with their experience playing together over the years......These players would NOT start on a lower level D-1 team.....Let alone a team that should vie for the top echelon in it's conference and play amongst the elite teams for a championship 03-idea Who are we fooling 05-nono

The one who got away. Just think where we'd be right now had he stuck around. I'm proud for him and hope he plays his way onto an NBA squad eventually.

Can you imagine all the wide open shots KD would have created for LQ, Nolley or Tyler? Other teams wouldn't be able to double him.

Epic Mind Blown

This new, more traditional lineup still looking good as SMU may attest to..

At 6'5", 16pts for Kennedy on 4 for 7 shooting (3 of 5 from three). That's a decent line for a shooting guard should have as the 3rd option on the team.

Instead of giving him a bit of a break, you had to play your star player 31 minutes in a blowout, because nobody else could run the point without him. Also, Lomax is the point guard and KD is the two guard.

CONFUSED_NEWS as usual.

We’re better without Lomax. You’ll understand soon enough, I know the eye test is the hardest thing to understand.
