JC can spin this however he wants, but this team isn’t going to be good with Hamilton next year either.

As long as defense is still part of basketball, they’re not good. These are the two most overrated players in all of college basketball.

No. They are the worst part. Waste of talent. Robinson probably fumbled this post though so there is that.

It was really great of the frontcourt, bench, coaching staff, and fans to drag the two most overrated players in the country (our guards) into overtime today.

I hope they don't fumble it


because they're playing the wrong sport you see

fumble is a football term

I give the players credit for fighting back, especially Robinson for hitting several clutch FTs, but tge defense was horrendous and they were so careless with the ball that they're lucky they weren't bliwn out by 20.

The stretch where Robinson fumbled it out of bounds six straight possessions was awesome.

The same issues I saw in the first game (his inability to dribble and recklessness) really haven’t improved at all.

He racks up stats on a terrible basketball team. If you want to win games, he’s not your PG.

There were only 14 bench minutes total, and Reyes was decent with a huge block as well. Starters basically played the whole game.

The bench except for Luka and Reyes in small doses should be nowhere near a D1 basketball court.

Absolutely no idea what the staff was thinking with Baker or Wilson

Baker is about 175 pounds and while it is true he has no business on a D1 basketball court currently, you can at least recognize that if he spent time in a weightroom and finished puberty, he might be. Wilson isn't good.

This is about as irritated as I’ve been about a BC Basketball game in a long time, so I’ll let you debate the Baker/Wilson offers. I said they were terrible offers at the time and will stick by that.

This team stinks. We can break down individual players all you want but this team is bad and will continue to be bad until they change the composition of it.
