a rollercoaster of emotions for sure. Never thought we'd lose, offense got stagnant at the start almost like they were trying to kill clock. bad calls, turnovers, foul trouble, Lindsey only taking a few shots in the 2nd Half, no "go to" guy late in games, poor interior defense...first few minutes of 2H were like Creighton.
Feel awful for the players and staff too. They put everything into this season, but never played well for 40 minutes. A damn shame it ended this way.
complete gag job by players and coaches. I know a 15 point (then 17) with 20 to play is not a lock. But come on. Would you rather start the half with that lead or behind? I don't want to hear about 9th place prediction and exceeding expectations. That's not where we ended up. We had an above average to good season. You can't spin this game, or the Creighton game, any way at all. It's a bad look. Just is.
no doubt we blew it. refs didn't do us any favors but there are no excuses. Cooley shares as much the blame as anyone. Also gotta give props to USC going big and having something to do with our collapse.
