Random Stats
Only THREE (3) players had assists and one of those only had 1 assist!!

Shot 21-30 on 2pt FG attempts !!! 70% - looks like a mismatch defensively to me!!!

I am glad the officials called 31 fouls on Howard. You need every advantage you can get when playing a powerhouse like the Bison.

Hoping that Space can come back soon as well, definitely needed him out there tonight. We didn't have much of a presence in the front court tonight. We're gonna have to run a 3 guard system all year.

I still think that Zach Coleman will be the key to the team's productivity this year. He will have to be the glue, being that middle man separating the guards from the big man. Also, he will need to up his defensive game on players such as Bembry. We really need Coleman to excel more than anybody on the court.

Nah. He has shown 0 indication he can defend without fouling, rotate on time, jump shoot, score inside, or hit FTs.

That's funny, I don't care who you are.
Raise the bar, do the minimum.

18 turnovers at home against Howard is a very, very, very clear indication that DK is just a very shitty coach.

It will be an up and down season and today was a perfect example of that. Hopefully they can build on each game and get the younger guys minutes in preparation for next year. Wish I could have been there today, but I was happy to be able to listen on the radio.

Hysterical, but I bet you are right. Didn't look like he could get off the ground at all.

As for marketing, not sure, but I can tell you that the live stream sucked. There was no time or score displayed for the entire game, there were several times that there was no audio, and they kept switching between cameras on different sides of the arena, which often made it appear both teams were shooting at the same hoop. It made me dizzy. Why are so many things done in a minor league fashion by this athletic department? Man does Bamford have a lot to improve. Hope he is up to it.

Only DK would recruit a 340lb kid to play in a run and gun style offense.

It's one game. Lots of very, very, very good coaches have had teams turn the ball over a lot in games before. DK may very well be a bad coach, but one game isn't a very, very, very clear indication of jack shit.
