This year is Bruce Pearls year to make a name for himself. He has an experienced team and they will be better then last year.
It was also the 3rd game of the year and it was a preseason Tournament....Who cares now we know that even when we are shooting terrible and not making plays we can still be in a game with a top opponent...
If Mid season we are not doing well then you can say we are underachieving. Lets keep the faith it was just one game...
It may not be all about who is more athletic, we have athletes, they had a couple we have more athletes. There are many variables that go into having a good basketball team and we don't have many of them.
The last couple of seasons we have underachieved, there is no denying that and we will this year as well. This style of offense will not get us past the sweet 16.
