This is getting ridiculous

The last thing I want to do when I'm hungover on a Sunday morning is suffer in a stuffy, hot gymnasium, while listening to the ear-shatteringly loud pep band and a fat idiot who won't stop shouting out dog related cliches such as "put 'em in the dog house!" or "take a bite out of Binghamton!"

Strike that- the last thing I want to do is go through all that and then lose by one point to Binghamton.

I'm not going to do a recap of the game because it was just too sad, so here's a bunch of things in no particular order.

First of all, everyone on the team needs to practice their free throws. This part of the game is killing us. When you add up the free throws missed, and the point differential in our recent losses, it will make you cry.

Lay ups, too. Again, we missed several shots which we should always make.

We blew our chance to win it with 5 seconds left. Rather, Macon blew it by passing the ball to Gaffney with no time left on the clock, rather than taking his own shot. We need to at least get a final shot off before the buzzer. I'm still not satisfied with the way Macon runs the offense, but I'm pleased that he's cut down on the turnovers.

It's a young team, yes, and we're going to be losing to teams like this. But it is clear that KG and Wynn are truly working hard to lead this team. Wynn has really been putting in the effort and it shows.

I was happy to see Wolff using the press in this game. The press was on for a good portion of both halves, and we seemed to be in control when we used it, but we didn't cause many turnovers.

At this point in the season, I honestly think that any team in the conference has a chance to make it to the big dance.

A quick sidenote, #32 on Binghamton looked real sharp and I think he has a shot at the All-Conference team, or even player of the year since no one else is really standing out.
