Hanging tough, down 38-34 at half. Yet another awful shooting night with 33% from the field but luckily opponents not much better at 42. Sparse crowd, who the hell decided on a 6 start time??

Probably has to do with evening study period. Just guessing though.

Unbelievable. Throwing the ball out of bounds with 13 seconds left.
 Hapless. Sometimes these guys look so unathletic.

Also blew a wide open layup on a drive that would have given us the lead. I think the thought and pressure of beating the conference favorite has crept in.

Had a good look from 3 to win it at the buzzer, just barely rolled off. 73-71 ETSU. Hard to be too upset when you have that opportunity for a W against the clear top team in the conference. Hopefully these last few days have been a confidence boost our team needs. Go Dogs!

These guys will be much better next year or year after.
They just get too tense at the wrong time, and then too lax at the wrong time.

What a game! Terribly hurtful to lose at the very end, but boy they played.  The missed layup and throwing the ball out unforced with 15 secs left really hurt, but I had it to those kids.  They were playing a team that is undefeated in league play, and had won 12 straight, and gave it all to them.  The Dogs were in it the whole game, and in spite of being outsized (got killed on rebounds)and playing against what seemed to me to be a smothering defense they were the aggressors.  Some made free throws and the 3-4 missed layups, who knows?  Say what you want, I'm proud of them.

This team needs to first learn how to play to win.  They have been blown out of so many games, where the end result was never in doubt, that they do not know how to stay calm & cool when the game is close & they have a lead. 

Against Mercer, when they were up by 16, they were playing not to lose as opposed to playing to win.

It's going to happen with a young team or we could poach the CC's for players like ETSU is doing. They graduated a ton of seniors last year and have a ton this year. You do the math. Good game from a young squad. Thanks for the effort and keep building.

So, ETSU ought to be easier next season, with half their upperclassmen gone, and us with no foreseeable loses.  Hope that translates to 2 W's against them next year.

No dude, they are loading up JUCO's and CC's as we speak. I met an asst. coach who recruited/worked for a similar program as ETSU, also in the SoCon. The only games he went to was the ones in the tourney, the rest of the time he stayed in the midwest and recruited for a school that he didn't attend any of their regular season games.

As a former juco coach, he will continue to reload year in year out. Currently, the only sport that gives them a name.

Something may be starting to happen with this team.

I hope so. My concern is that in the last 2 games, we shot very well & made FTs while Mercer & ETSU shot very poorly, yet both games were close.
