When's the last 3 Mitchell hit!? Dude is bricking WIDE open 3's. Their best players on the bench and we can't do anything

0-4 against ISU

0-4 against OU

0-3 already in this game

He's killing the offense right now. We've missed bu my count 4 wide open 3's already. Hopefully that changes because TCU has zero business beating BU. KU murdered this team... without Graham

Has Mitchell been watching old tapes of AJ Walton or something? He's gonna dribble the air out of the ball before long.

Continuing to get wide-open looks from three and missing

Under 6 minute mark, and we have 15 points. Ugh...

Teague... wise open BRICK. Said it from day 1 we need a post who can create his own!

We play a half like this against Gonzaga and we're down 16-20 points right now.

Mayer needs more PT

You guys can throw water bottles at me if you want to, but the only times in the past 3 games when ball movement improved happened every time Mayer enters the game.

Shooting percentage

It's because he's the best passer on the team and his first step is long and quick. He gets into the paint and good things happen.

Not much to add at this point. Shots aren't falling for most of the team, and 7 turnovers is no bueno. 3 of those TOs came from vital mishandling a pass by the bucket.

He needs to play more. You aren't wrong

Too bad we actually have one, but he can't play this season. Hoping that doesn't turn out to be the missing piece that ultimately costs us a conference championship but it could.

Even when our offense sleeps, our D will keep us in every game all year (as long as we keep playing the way we have been playing).

Mayer in paint again.

We're getting outrebounded 19-11 so far.

Wonder if we'll start better against a KU or UT? We seem to often play at our opponents level, up or down.

Mayer can get the break started really well.

Also, nice to have bigs like JTT who can switch ball screens

Butler is so smooth
DanaDane

We're shooting 10% from 3. There's no way we finish at less than 35%, right?

Very late foul call
