It is only going to get tougher from here on out. That being said, I agree with OP in that it might help us to have this humiliating loss against our Rival to instill some sort of sourness going forward. Chips on shoulders always help. If we could only get consistent in the half-court and hit free throws then we would have a better chance at going deeper. We have a good team, yes, but going deep in the tourney is not forseeable.
