OK, We Suck
I've been putting off saying this for as long as possible, because I've been hoping that it just wasn't true, but we suck.
I should have noticed this last weekend when I was excited that we squeezed out a win against Stony Brook.
Let's take a look at the evidence from tonight's loss to UMBC:
Exibit A - 5 points in the first 12 minutes. We have GOT to stop doing this. We put ourselves in a hole from the outset of almost every game. Someone's not preparing our team for the start of the game (**cough**Wolff**cough**).
Exibit B - We had a stretch of over 10 minutes without a bucket. I forget that this is a sign of suckiness because it seems to happen once a game. Oh, and the final 7 minutes of the game, too.
Exibit C - Aside from a ball that went out of bounds off the hand of a UMBC player, we had Zero offensive rebounds in the first half. ZERO! That's pathetic. That means that every time we had the ball on offense, it was one shot, usually a miss, and UMBC got the ball back.
Exibit D - 5 second chance points, 10 points in the paint. These two figures show that we have no inside presence. Big problem.
Exibit E - The play by play guy for 1590 The Zone said it pretty well after Scott Brittain fouled out with no points: with Corey still out and Carlos held to 5 points, our three leading scorers tallied 5 points tonight.
Exibit F - Um... 25 % shooting percentage? Are you fucking kidding me?
Exibit G - We just had our asses pounded at home to UMBC.
I don't want to think about basketball until the Vermont game. See you at the Greek at 9PM on Friday, folks.
