    Why does it seem Battey always plays like Karl Malone against us?

    That 3 pointer he made had side spin - looked like a professional bowler release......

    SC offense really struggling past 3 quarters. Guards need to penetrate more - too easy to for these teams that know each other well to defend the weave around the perimeter.

    Save for a few games this yeas, OSU specifically, the guards on this team have stunk up the joint. They are simply not any good.

    I know we are always the biggest critics of our own team. Nova lost by 15 today at home to unranked Creighton. Sometimes it's just not your night. But, totally agree that the guards are the weak link. And, on nights when Nic goes schizo, this team has very little chance.

    that's true but Nova has the benefit of the doubt due to their NCAA Tournament history in the last 5 years (2 National titles, multiple tournament appearances). SC still hasn't shown that it's ready for primetime.

    SC basketball under Enfield is frustrating to watch. I guess just be happy to feed the NBA with “one and done” guys like DeRozen, Mayo, Porter, Melton, Mobley next year... and make the NCAA tourney now and then.

    I agree. Honestly, after watching this team play all year, I'm surprised they've had as much success as they have to this point. Super inconsistent top to bottom - but they've been good in the close games. Enfield needs to go find a Mckinley Wright type player.

    Don’t understand down 20 5 min left, why not put Drake London in? Not going to win that game. Give him a chance

    Guard play and offense a big problem for this team.
    Shooting is a problem
    Can’t win if can’t shoot

    Okay, let's not get too down on this team. They have already done more than just a handful of SC basketball teams. The common thread in their major losses is the shooting by their guards and forwards. This team works best when there is good outside shooting which then opens up possible scoring inside. It also helps when we play solid defense. In the Colorado game, a much more experienced team hence their preseason accolades, we didn't shoot well from outside which allowed the Buffs to collapse inside which stopped our bigs from scoring and our guards when they would try and penetrate. So those of you who wanted our guards to penetrate more, you are wrong, we needed to connect from the outside. Unfortunately they needed a shooting threat. Hopefully this team is resilient enough to pick up 5 or 6 more wins down the stretch and goes far in the Pac 12 tournament. The team is definitely better than they were earlier and needs to keep improving.

    I must be bad luck....every time I try to watch...they seem to play like they did in this game.... cannot shoot, cannot get shots, bad ball handling, and big guys getting manhandled
