Royce was clearly not the problem, even though it was frustrating that he turned the ball over so many times. I saw Fred really grab his arm and push him coming out of one play. That was a bit surprising.
Hoiberg grabbed the bridge of his nose in disbelief when that shot went off. Royce does a lot for this team, but sometimes he lets points slip away, too. It doesn't mean he's a bad player, it just means he has to work on his decision making and realize the value of a possession.
Come on Royce????
Let me tell ya boys Royce isnt the reason that WE lost the game to the horns last nite....
If we had a guard court of Jacovous Brown and Myck Katango we win this game going away...
Our guards last nite couldnt throw the ball into the ocean, to borrow a phrase from Larry Eustacy....Chris Allen and Scotty were absolutely Horrific and since all the so called experts say that college b ball is a guards game I will lay this loss on their doorstep ....
that was a bone headed play by royce, but not as boneheaded as jump-passing out of back to back open threes by our guards in the last two possessions, both leading to turnovers. that was unbelievable. Royce is a sophomore, these guys are supposed to be our senior leaders.
If anyone wants to PM me, I'm selling razor blades.
My point is Royce's shot is something we can immediately fix, Royce should not take another 3 for the rest of the year. Launch a couple against Grand valley State next year, in the 1st half to get it out of his system, that would work for me. This loss isnt on Royce, This loss was a team effort. I honestly think we would have had to beat Mizzou too to move out of the 8-9 game, tall task so hopefully we fall to the 10. We havnt had a game like that since Okie State, maybe its out of their system. Give UT credit.
Royce still has a lot of improvement left in his game. Hopefully he comes back next year and puts the finishing touches on his career. He still needs to learn when to be aggressive scoring with the ball, and when to pass.
Desperate actions of a desperate man.
