Period. End of story.Boum and Bryson both missed critical free throws. Same as Kansas, Can't make a clutch shot.
But Terry let's them do whatever they want and gives everyone the green light, never benches anyone for lack or effort or poor shot selection....hence no mental toughness.
DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES!!
Almost 7 minutes without a basket to end the game, I think.Our biggest problem, again: we don't make a shot from the field in the last several minutes of the game. I've never seen a team with such an inability to put the ball in the basket for so many long periods of time. Another crappy March for Miner fans.
To be fair to Terry, the game in game out 5 minute scoring drought is about the only UTEP basketball tradition we've had over the past decade. How we can have such continuity over two different regimes is beyond me.If not for one of our patented long scoring droughts we would be leading this game. It would be nice to avoid one of those in the 2nd half, but this is a Rodney Terry coached team.
