Good time for the U8. Arguably the worst 4 minutes of the season right there.

Drew should have pulled Mayer at the previous TO. It would have saved us 3 straight bad possessions.

Mayer's mechanics are wonky too. Once he gets those worked out he will be special.

What was the call?

This is where mason needs to take over. Drive to the basket to pick up a foul. No more jacking 3's.
BearFan33
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Mason fouled no call
rudylaw
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Why can't we get one ****ing call at the rim?
BearFan33
How long do you want to ignore this user?
That was clean on Kegler

Just kidding lol
rudylaw
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Kegler may just have screwed us. This will be a flagrant.
rileyroo
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Totally fouled on that drive
BellCountyBear
How long do you want to ignore this user?
That was not a flagrant!!! !
BearFan33
How long do you want to ignore this user?
The reason why Kegler hacker extra hard was because we got screwed at the other end
rudylaw
How long do you want to ignore this user?
0-2! Lady luck!
Stefano DiMera
How long do you want to ignore this user?
That was not flagrant
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
C'mon Bears. We need a good shot here.
CaliByWayOfKS
How long do you want to ignore this user?
No way that was a flagrant 1 at all... and yet the Mason drive before that where he's hit by two guys... zero call.
rudylaw
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Vital 2-2 NBN!
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Yooohooooo!!!!!
rudylaw
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Are you kidding me? My lord Vital.
