    Re: Assessment of LSU game

    We hardly got the ball to Duruji during the end of the game, if I remember correctly. They had him guarded. And our players would frequently hesitate to shoot only to end up shooting anyway.

    For us to be successful he has to play - him missing a lot of games in the second half last year due to back issues was the prime reason we had the season we had

    Glad Duruji got back on track - he has really struggled the last 3 games

    Powell is the wild card on this team - sneaky good and constantly improving - missed a lot of chippys last night down the stretch that he normally makes
    It's hard for me to agree with your "best player" analysis..... You do get an "A" for selling it, though.

    - Duruji is better than anyone on this team and was the best player on the floor last night (22 pts, 9 rebs). Duruji was 3 of 4 (75%) from 3-point land. Problem was, he needed some help.

    - Powell didn't impress offensively. He finished with only 5 pts, when he should have had 15. He seemed nervous, and couldn't make the really easy shots. He easily left 10 points off the board. But his 10 rebounds were really good.

    - Tech out rebounded LSU on both ends of the court (42-38), had a better 3-point percentage (39% vs 21%) and the free throw line battle, 61.5% vs 57.9%. It was the turnovers that killed us. We lost that battle, 17-7.

    Our dominance on the glass is the story so far this year imo.

    Powell is strong and quick around the basket. He struggles with touch sometimes. Last night he definitely hurt us. If he can become consistent he will be a weapon.

    Duruji can be a one man run when he turns it on. Rebounding, stealing, blocking, running the floor, shooting the three. Scary.

    A foul should have been called, but it would have been after the shot. Would have been a 1-and-1 at that point.

    Tech was still ahead before Christon went out, and LSU made its decisive run right after.

    And it was during that run when the LSU player was not called for traveling which extended that run. Don't know what would have happened had the call been made but it hurt us.

    There were a few missed calls but the officiating last night was excellent imo. They let the players play and didn't call ticky tack, flow killing nonsense.

    First time I didn't feel i had been robbed playing a SEC team. One bad call on a out of bounds play and it was close .

    Re: Assessment of LSU game

    I was at the game and I agree with most of what has been posted on this thread except the anonymous insane ramblings about Bracey and Harris. Bracey was not 100 percent but he played. For those complaining that he threw the game away they apparently were not paying attention to the first half when we came back from 9 almost immediately after Bracey was inserted into the game. The entire dynamics of our team changed for the better.

    Clearly Duruji was the best player on the floor last night and lsu DID know it. My son and I were 7 rows behind their bench. Late in the first half after Duruji drove threw 3 of their guys, missed a shot, got the rebound and put it back in, one of their assistants screamed at the whole team, “WE CAN’T STOP HIM!”

    I agree with DFM that when healthy, Bracey is our “best” player. Duruji is our best athlete and quickly becoming a great player. I said before the season, that pretty much every time we play we will have the 2 most talented players on the court and believe if Bracey had been 100 percent that would have been the case last night as well and we win going away. No moral victories, we should be undefeated today, but effort was great.
