I never thought we could hang with Carolina at their place. Or with Wisconsin, Oregon and Gonzaga on a neutral floor. But what scares me is these guys haven't had that game where they just couldn't hit anything. But I'm confident Barnes will have these guys prepared.

Maybe Hubbs, Mostella, Turner, Phillips, and Bowden are all better options playing wing and Parker will get off ball minutes too with Bone back.
THIS! If Schofield from last year was playing, we would have at least one or two more W's right now.

I think Williams just solidifies that position more than what Schofield was providing. Last year's Schofield provided "easy downlow" baskets and the occasional 3. This year, we already have players who can make that shot down low (Evans/Williams/Fulk) and we don't need Schofield's 3 pt game bc we have good shooters this year.

I do wonder why Evans plays over Schofield.

Evans has started rebounding. schofield still doesn't.

Attitude very likely. Evans is probably doing exactly what he's being asked (told) to do. Also, maybe Evans performs better in practice.

Well said....I just felt like Admiral was going to be a leader for us this year, but I couldn't have been more wrong.

Still 7 games away, but Kansas State is looking good. They almost beat #3 Kansas last night and beat Shaka the game before. Only other loss was to Maryland. Only two losses, both by one point.

TN is looking at a potential 3 game losing streak that could stretch to 10 or more. Somebody needs to step up. Hubbs? Mostella? Williams? Schofield? Where's Phillips? None of the four freshmen guards (Bone, Parker, Turner, Bowden) have looked like they're anywhere close to being a difference maker and able to elevate the team. Alexander isn't ready to be a game changer (except for sometimes protecting the rim) and Evans is just a role player. Hubbs really needs his fire lit up if TN has any chance at the NIT. The point guards have to start making getting the ball into Hubb's hands their primary focus.

This can get real ugly real quick.

Lulz no chance they lose 10 games in a row. Good grief.

I think they want games ending earlier for students. A complete guess/assumption. Either that or some weird TV negotiation thing.

I'd guess making the prime time game start and end earlier could garner better ratings for the later game.
