    I can live with the outcome of the game if 4 things happen:

    1. We shoot 65% or better from the line
    2. We consistently get a body on a body when rebounding
    3. SHJ and MM avoid circus fallaway shots and take in-rhythm shots in the offense
    4. We keep turnovers under 15

      Torres needs to contribute at PG period. Otherwise we are stuck with Samajae playing a position that he has never been comfortable with or Burton having to contend with quicker guards on both ends. That will mean single digit wins and Burton being worn down by February.

      ALo leaving when he did really screwed us. Torres has to manage the team as a coach on the floor. His maturity was one of the big reasons we recruited him late. I’m not sure why he sat on the bench on Tues for most of the first half after picking up one quick foul.

      He wasn’t in long enough to do anything too bad, IMHO, in that first half.

        Remember when Conner deferred to Fred and Ron when we really needed him to be more assertive? I'm begging Ricky to be more assertive because it seems like he's deferring to Samajae and the freshman and nothings happening? That isn't gonna work.

      I would be floored if those all come to fruition today and I wouldn’t care at all about the score.

      Unfortunately, the chances of all this happening are near zero, I’m afraid, specifically regarding #3.

        Has anyone heard if Moore made the trip?

            What’s the best way to stream the game for free? I’ll be on a drive to KC during the game and won’t have the benefit of stopping to watch

              If you have CBS Sports Network in your cable/satellite/etc package already, just use the CBS Sports app.

            That would be not just acceptable, but fantastic. Just any two of those things would be a helluva improvement

              I just ask for improvement. Take a step forward.

                Maybe I'm overstating, but it feels like this is a HUGE game.

                    Providence Friars going to deep fat fry these chicken tendies by 9.

                    Going to be a long season for these kids unless they find some grit and toughness on D.

                    Okay guys.

                    1) Put you change in your left pocket. Go on, do it.
                    2) Now, tie your left shoe in a double knot.
                    3) Turn your hats around backwards. Go on, do it.
                    4) Take a tee and stick it behind your left ear.

                    Now, root this team straight down the fairway. Keep your brains from getting in the way.
                    The year of the hatchlings!

                      Wouldn't it be a hoot if we win this game?

                        This is simple wisdom but it would be good if more took the same approach. Just give GM time to mold this team. He knows what he is doing. Allow him some time. This team will take time to improve and we can't "will" them to success.
