    Ram game will end abut 4:30, game starts at 6, I would schedule to get there 4-4:30 and preparty at the Lab or get a pizza. This will be a fun game, tickets are cheap, you will have a great time, bring the family, there will be a load of pro scouts so players will be pumped

    If you are a Season Ticket holder, the Founders Club in Galen is a good option as well.

    Huge loss tonight. Can’t lose these games against good competition at home. A game like this could be the difference in not making the Tournament,
    much like last season.

    Now you can’t afford to lose more than 1 more game in the non conference schedule or you might get left out.

    We will not win many Pac12 games if enfield keeps trotting out thornton and usher until they learn how to play. Both have low b-ball iq and both took quick shots for no reason down the stretch. The guy guarding rakocevik had 4 fouls so they shud have just pounded it down there. Instead, we took shots for no reason rather than setting things up for a good shot. So dumb. Thornton has not improved one bit since last year. He’s a turnover machine and bad off ball defender.

    Disappointing loss. Here's my take based on what I saw at Galen


    1st half was a disaster, Thornton was reckless
    2nd half team actually played pretty good and had the lead for a brief moment. I was hoping when Garland got 4 fouls that the team would actually drive at him but apparently Enfield thought otherwise
    Porter is the real deal. When he had 5 fouls, the team's momentum kind of died
    A healthy Bennie and Weaver will do us favors.
    I wouldn't panic unless SC loses to Texas Tech and TCU, then hit the panic button.
    Vandy could potentially be the 3rd/4th best team in the SEC. Kentucky, Florida and Auburn being ahead of them.

    New year, same story. These are crippling losses.

    Also, I really hate this "token starter" bullshit. No disrespect to J Ush or Shaq Aaron, but Kevin Porter Jr. looks like our best player. The kid needs to be on the floor.

    USC has talent especially in Porter.
    USC shooting and FTs were not as good as Vandy.
    And Vandy owns the boards.
    USC had limited players.
    But Bennie and Weaver should come back.
    And Usher is improving each game.

    Rackocevic is the real deal...The offense should go thru him.

    Him, Porter, Boatwright could form a good foundation....plus Shaqquan Aaron playing good ball, along with Matthews...so there's your foundation pieces...just need good PG play, some rebounding.....

    Thornton had one turnover, Usher and Thornton play aggressive that is their style. Would not like to see them slow down. We had two issues, 3 pt shooting sucked, Mathews who shot over 40% last year went 1 for 6, and Porter picked up quick fouls.

    Rakocevic is playing hard and well. Porter is an absolute stud. Very strong and explosive. Usher plays hard and should get the minutes needed to improve his game.

    They need to really work on the fundamentals of blocking out.

    Not sure I need to see Thornton slow down, but he needs to run some offense. 17 shots to 2 assists is not what we need from him. He should never have the most shots on the team.

    Try to ignore that stuff. J Usher brings life and energy to the court/team and needs to play as much as possible IMO.
