:: Can You Believe We've Been Doing This Shit for Six Years Now? ::

This is getting old

It pains me to say this, but we were simply outplayed by Albany last night. Sure, a few things did go our way. Our shots just weren't falling, but we didn't have many good looks from the outside anyway, thanks to a good perimeter defense by Albany. As for our inside game, I've never seen so many missed lay-ups. There aren't any excuses for this loss.

One thing is for sure, the youth of our team is really showing, especially when it comes down to the last 2 minutes. It seems our game completely falls apart every time towards the end. The final score was 53-47, but it was closer than a 6 point game leads you to believe. We took bad shots and we turned it over. Macon didn't seem like he was able to lead the team at the end of the game. When down bby 4 with 30 seconds left, we can't be taking 20 seconds to get a shot off. Those kinds of things can't happen at the end of the game.

But we made mistakes early in the game too. KG, Omari, Cob (still looking for a decent nickname for Ben), and eventually Gaffney got into foul trouble early. Wayyyyyy to early. How we ended up with the lead at half-time is beyond me, because it seemed like Albany was in control for most of the game.

I'm not quite sure how to get over this loss. Albany is a quality, and there is no doubt in my mind that they're the team to beat this year.

the six or so albany fans at the game made more noise than the couple hundred ancient BU alumni in attendance. in the box score the attendance was N/A. What that means is they were embarrased to say what it was. Any place that scans every ticket knows how many there were there.
Had the spread right but Albany's "D" kept the score down. BU only made 2 3-pointers all game and one was a bank shot by Macon with the shot clock running out. The only BU offense I saw was when KG got the ball on the baseline and came across the lane. nobody drove and except when Zoellner was out, nobody else was effective inside. I'll admit that Zoellner can't make a layup. But he sure changes shots and creates match-up problems. I don't see BU beating Binghamton on sunday if they play the way they did yesterday. Forget the NIT let alone NCAA.
