    Re: LA Tech Turns the Page to Marshall

    Totally disappointing game.... Trying my best to be optimistic by stating this (forcing my words) - it is better to have a slump now and win the tournament than to slump in the tournament. Maybe we can get some fire and reverse the trend. We don't need to win the regular season- we need to win the tournament. It is all about seeding now. Need to beat the two FU's at home and hope WKU drops games to UTSA and UTEP on the road. That would give us a 2 seed.

    Not worth driving to Ruston to see any of the remaining home games. That was HORRIBLE last night!

    On to baseball.

    The good news is that a home split this week gets us into Pod 1 and that we cannot lose our way out of the top 5 after that. Sounds kinda like Iowa math to me, but I will let others decide.

    Pretenders???

    Tech has no NIT shot unless it runs the table until the conference tournament final, And I can't see anything better than a split at NT and at WKU.

    Until they start making free throws, there is no reason to worry about anything post season. They will have ample opportunity to practice on free throws back at home.

    The next page was the same as the previous one...

    And to think I was actually, kind of, maybe thinking of heading over to Frisco. Whew! these bums saved me some money and time.

    In spite of the one guy who shot better than he ever has in his life, we put ourselves in position to win in regulation. Then, in the last 30 seconds, Archibald missed a free throw, then Ledoux didn't block out his guy on a greatly defended forced shot, and Bracey dribbled the clock out. Oh well
    Have you considered those Dogs?

    Re: Marshall Outlasts LA Tech in Overtime

    4 ways to create offense and we are not good at any.

    (1) Create turnovers on D that turn into easy pts - not good on D.

    (2) Shoot 45+% from 3 - not consistent
    (3) Pts in the paint from our bigs - only if other team's big's are terrible which has been maybe 2-3 teams this year
    (4) Drive to the rim - teams now just foul us because they know we cant shoot FTs

    The games we have looked good are the games that we shot really well from 3 and were able to stretch the defense and move the ball. As the season has progressed, teams have stepped up the man to man defense and we have really struggled shooting, passing and getting into any flow on offense. Our defense has not been stellar all year. So who knows how we finish these last 6 games but gotta win tourney yet again and Konkol's teams seem to always struggle at tourney time.

    It seems that many of you were listening to the game and not watching it. If so, then you could not see how open and how often Byer was afforded totally uncontested threes. Many of his shots were made without a Tech defender within six feet of him. Yet Tech seemed to never get an uncontested opportunity from behind the arc. To the contrary our shooters were being guarded so tightly that they were having to elevate the arc of the ball thus causing missed shots. This appeared to me to have happened at WKU as well.

    They get open shots and our shooters get smothered. Konkol doesn't seem to have a remedy.

    ....I'm telling ya, these guys love to dribble the ball more than anybody I've ever seen.

    I watched. It was bad.

    Some of our shots were good. But the bad ones tend to stick in the memory and I remember a lot of frantic lobs in the paint that had no chance of going in.
