Win is a win. I think Devonte wanted to show out for the hometown and was in his feelings tonight. Just a piss poor showing all game long. Luckily Brunk and Al woke up late to get us some badly needed buckets. The good news is there will be TONS to learn from. Back to work

Agreed. Devonte was hunting for his **** tonight and that never turns out well. They keyed in on him and his p*** poor ball handling almost cost us on more than one occasion.

I stand by my comments about both teams being terribly coached. Happy for the W but yikes don't feel any better from here on out. This isn't a GOOD team. Nevermind very good, mediocre may even be stretch.

I honestly believe both coaches are decent coaches, but tonight both teams weren’t well coached.

At the end of the day, I’ll take being 9-1 and going home to play Nebraska.

Come March, this is a resume boosting win. UConn is a tough out.

Go Hoosiers!

gutsy win on a bad shooting night. I'll take it lol.

Durham had some great timely shots, and Brunk did more than I thought he would.

Akok is going to be special.

Overall, great win coming of a horrible loss, and to do it at MSG on the road was sweet. I thought we'd lose this one, and especially after the start.

Goodness gracious. No one wanted to win this game... What an odd game. Was the humidity at 99% in the gym? Bumbling basketball. 

Also, I'm happy for win but something is driving me crazy. While Brink was going off, he would be 4 foot from rim pivoting and all 4 of our other players were standing around the arc. GO HELP THAT DUDE OUT OR TIME THE REBOUND. They all sat out there on the play where Brunk was facing 2 guys and got his own rebound away from the 3rd nearby defender for a outback. Archie has to fix that. That's not a "clear out" situation. 

Whatev, they keep grinding. And Devonte, give the ball to Rob for free throws. What a frustrating win lol

If passes to Rob on that out of bounds play, it's a turnover.  Defender was hugging Rob.  And the last time Green got fouled, he had just stole the ball.  Not sure how in either case he was supposed to get it Rob.

How many times have we won with more airballs 3’s than made 3’s ?

Glad to see Rob. Hopefully we will see more of him going forward.

Props to Brunk for saving us during a stretch in the second half after a less than optimal first half. Not always easy to come back from that.

As much hate as Brunk and Al got they were our leading scorers

Devonte has to be more clutch on FT at the end of the game,  that can hurt us later on. 

Brunk & Al played much better in the 2nd.

Jerome, Damezi, Armaan... gotta add something somewhere...

Deron is never going to get whatever athleticism he once had back and that's sad. 

Could both teams have played really good defense? Or both played bad offensively?

I’ll bite - I was one of those critics of their play in the first half. Brunk was self explanatory but Durham is our second leading returning scorer and he did not play well at all in the first half. He has a tendency to want to drive through guys and if his shot isn’t falling he’s another Damezi in my eyes with less rebounding. I was happy to see him turn it around in the second. We’re going to need him obviously but I do think we need him to find more consistent offense.

Good for Brunk fighting back in that stretch.

Really glad we got the W.

We are a flawed team. We just are. We need to win ugly because we don’t shoot it great.

UConn had a slight crowd advantage. I think overall the refs were fairly neutral. This win will carry a little.

Wins on the road this year will be rare unless our defense holds teams in the low 60s.

On to the next.

I'm not sure I know what ur referring to. I'm watching the replay and Vital was going for the steal, Devonte grabbed it and Rob was standing wide open 5 feet from him just having knocked down 2 big throws. Vital knowing he missed, grabbed Devonte for an easy foul save but, Devonte could have easily handed that off too. It was hero mode.

Green is the same player hes always been. He will cost us a couple games this year.
