    Whatever that was, it wasn’t Cougar basketball. But no worries. Sasser has taken a major leap forward this month making us a legit contender.

    interesting. I guess the NCAA sent out memos to stop the hand shake line at the end of games. #coronavirus

    No excuses they beat us. But just noticed they shot 33 free throws and we only shot 10. We hit all 10 but they outscored us by 15 points on the free throw line. And they outrebounded us 42-31. Getting in foul trouble is something we have to work on. This time it really cost us in more ways than one. And Sassar could not hit the broad side of the barn tonight. These type of games happen. If we allow ourselves to play this way in the tournament whether it be the AAC or the NCAA we are going to get beat. Would love to know what Sampson has to say to the team after this one. It just seemed that UCONN wanted this game more than we did.

    I really like UCONN. Better than their record, and they showed it tonight. Can’t win them all, and probably good to get this one out of the way.

    I just can't getaway from how good would this team be with Armoni Brooks on it?
    Senior leadership
    Continuity
    Outside shooting
    Go to scorer

    Wonder what drove him to leave.

    EDIT: I see he is in the G league with the Hawks. That's a legit choice. But you have to think that option would be there a year later, after a deep tournament run! And spend a year as big man on campus.

    The only silver lining of not having Brooks on this years team is that next years team will be better with Mills, Sassar and others getting more playing time and much needed experience. But I agree with you that it would have been fun to watch this year's team with him on it.

    Tramon Mark is the real deal. U of H got a future Nba player. 6'5 with shooting and fast ass hell with Westbrook's heart.

    I have them winning the state championship. I need to watch him play in the playoffs

    I could have easily seen this team reach a top 15 ranking, maybe even crack top 10 if a sniper like brooks came back. Just look at how UH plays. That’s the one thing they’re basically missing. Not only that, he’d bring leadership and experience on top of a very young team.

    But another strong class coming in, including a big finally. It’ll be interesting who may leave though potentially

    Think Sasser may already be better than Brooks and Dotson. While it’s easy to forget what Brooks and Dotson did as pure shooters, out of sight out of mind, Sasser looks like a better shooter and player. Better legs, has more lift, looks stronger. Brooks could get taken out physically by a tough cover and Achilles FT. Dotson could not drive the basket to save his life. Sasser appears just as good beyond the arc and has the 3 off the dribble already, plus penetration, passing, clutch, and mid range turn around. He just looks solid already inside and out. He’s not Davis Jr yet, but I could easily envision it.

    Lets hope there is no hangover in today's game from our last performance against UCONN and the time change. We are really playing this game at 10AM now 11 AM due to time change. We are at home but we are going to have to shoot better than we did against UCONN. Are you listening Sassar? No bone headed plays are you listening Jarreau? Stay out of foul trouble. That goes for everyone on our team. I love the rebounding but I think we can do it and play defense without consistently out fouling our opponents.

    These athletic teams are still suffocating us. Thought we adjusted after Cincy, but still a problem area. We can still win it though.
