Is it me or does Royce at the top of his follow through of his free throw shot lean back? Therefore short arms it. Free throws were a problem tonight, but that will not happen all the time. Liked the 2-3 zone defense tonight as well
Beats disappearing for 2 halves like he has done in the past.
The 2nd half officiating made it tough for anyone to get in a flow.
Granted. I would venture to say this was the most complete game for these guys. Sadly, that's not saying much right now because they still have a lot to work on, BUT it appears they are all starting to find their roles. CA still has me concerned. He likes to call his own number a little much for my liking.
A win is better than a loss, but we barely beat the worst Texas team there has been in a decade, by 6 points with 4 of their players fouling out or going out with injuries.
If we beat A&M on the road, I'll be a lot more confident.
There is some truth in what you say about this Texas team compared to previous years, BUT Brown and Oingokaboingo are big-time players. There may be inexperience on the Longhorn roster, BUT their roster is FILLED with 4 and 5 star players. This win wasn't pretty, but we got it done! We make 70% of our FTs tonight and we win by a much larger margin, and there'd also be much more positive comments on this message board.
Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"
