Good - We needed a win and we got it.
Bad - We didn't play well overall and tried to choke it away at the end
Ugly - Will Wade. I despise him more than I do Pearl and that's saying something...

Good: a win is always better than a loss

Bad: our shooting is just abysmal. Effort is there, but execution is not. We have 7 footers who cannot dunk. I don’t know why we don’t even look like the team we were in December, much less last year.

Ugly: I second the Will Wade nomination. I don’t understand why he is still employed, but if he is going to be then I’m happy to see us beat his ass.

Good - broke the losing streak
Bad - Shooting in 2nd half, Gurley’s soft hands, and the wrong IMG 7’ center
Ugly - Ravich/Dykes inability to seem impartial

Gary and Rojas are very important to our defense. They are the only ones built like most of LSU and UF's teams. Other than them, we are small and compact or tallish and willowy. Body weight and strength are the biggest part of Bediako's struggles around the rim. He's so used to laying it in over shorter players, he has nothing when it comes to a defender who is shorter but can jump just as high - and is much stronger. Ellis needs to get more selfish with the ball, like Shack and Q. He seems to be our only 3 pt shooter without prolonged cold spells...

Good- Won the game. Bad- Shooting again(I'm afraid this is what they are). Ugly- this team reminds me of Nate Oates first team and the years before . Get big leads blow them and go on big scoring droughts. Hard to break old habits

Here’s the thing though. What we perceive as a big lead in the three-point era isn’t. A 13 point lead it’s really only a 4 to 5 possession situation. LSU hit four three pointers in a row. No matter how big or lead you have, sometimes the other team gets hot. I do agree however.

We do look more reminiscent of two years ago. This is mostly because we don’t have a tall three that can hit the boards and drive to the basket

Our slashers are too short. You can’t free open your shooters when they’re driving

If we could get Gary or Rojas to be able to hit a corner 3 - 40% of the time, this team would be very hard to stop
