Had a steal and then lost the ball under our basket on the 1st one. Second one he caught the inbound pass right on the sideline and stepped out of bounds.
Wow massive choke job. I wouldn't be surprised by a similar outcome tomorrow. Just can't win at USM.
BW also played poorly. Their defense made him a non factor offensively. Verhoeven was dominated by Stephenson (former walk-on), and was again non-existent offensively. Just a really poor showing. We need a big turn around to not end up being swept tomorrow.It wasn't Terry that blew the game at the end, it was Boum. It happens sometimes, but he needs to mature and let it go. Terry's mistake was giving Boum the ball in the last 15 seconds when it was obvious he was distraught.
We lost the game by missing at the rim and getting burned in the paint....again. Terry is responsible for that. We missed plenty of free throws too.
Also I really don't understand why Onyema can't get a few minutes in these games when our frontcourt is getting burned.
While they did double BW he still had a number of very makeable shots that he just missed. He was one of many that just missed too many shots that should have been made tonight, especially in the first half. We shot better in the 2nd half, but then came our collapse down the stretch. A team with pride would know they gave this one away and be ready to take it to USM tomorrow. What will this team do?BW also played poorly. Their defense made him a non factor offensively.

Hopefully we are not at that level yet, but I may have a different response tomorrow. 😳Maybe an overreaction here, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this turns into the equivalent of last year’s Hawaii implosion. We just don’t seem to have that “IT” factor...yet again.

What I remember, on the first turnover, Southern Miss was in a full court pressure. Bienemy inbounded to Boum along the sideline and was wanting to get fouled (did get bumped - but really was probably a good no-call), instead he stepped out of bounds. He should hav dribbled towards the center of the court. The sideline is like an extra defender. Boum had no where to go. On the second, during another full court press, Bienemy got the ball to Agnew who then passed it to Boum at mid-court. Instead of Boum pulling the ball back he chose to attack, and lost the ball. Not playing SMART!
Welcome to CRT basketball.
Disappointed in our big men, they got out muscled & out hustled by a walk on.
