For a team who struggles to score, I don’t get how Jared plays ahead of Rishwain.

For a guy who’s been around college basketball for a while, DT is really dumb

If somebody kept stats on moving screens per minute, Luka would probably be number one all time in the history of college basketball. Mind boggling they can't correct it and insist on playing him. Even worse was when he would get minutes over Reyes last year.

You should do that. Who was the poster that campaigned the NCAA to make halo violations per-game and official stat?

Their entire offense is run outs off of Thornton turnovers

Thornton playing like shit and being stupid. They don't have better options, but I won't miss him next year.

They'll be lucky to win after those last 3 possessions. Terrible offense. They desperately needed the under 8 TV break. Now they have no times out (shout out to Dave Sims) left.

Fitting that Thornton missed the front end to send this to overtime. He's been terrible

BC literally has no one available. Thornton has to play but for chrissakes he cant be your lead guard when anything clutch has to happen. Hopefully continuing to think Thornton should lead the team will be the final straw as it has cost multiple wins.

BC needs to get away from the "grad transfer PG" thing.

These refs have done them no favors going down the stretch and into OT, obviously Thornton could've iced it with free throws but a lot of questionable calls in VT's favor mixed with missed calls that should've put BC at the line.

thankfully that's one position we definitely don't need right now

we do need a 5th year big or that 7'1" kid

When it comes to 5th yrs, it should be big men. I won't expect 12ppg 7rpg. I'd be fine with a guy who gets us 8ppg 5.5rpg in 30 minutes of play, a solid contributor that fills a role.

Where would we be w/o Mitchell? MVP of this below avg season :shrug

I gave BC very little chance to win once it got to OT. They had no Felder, no Pop, no Hamilton brothers, and Thornton was tanking. Mitchell was just incredible.

Kamari should get some of Jared Hamilton's minutes. He's got nice touch and is never out of control like Hamilton can be at times.
