Crazy half.  Dogs down 12-0 to start the game.  Roar back and take the lead, go up by 10.  Go cold and end the half down by 7, 39-32.  I was really optimistic, and am faltering.  Hope they weather that, have a good coach talk and come out hot.

Come back and get close, now down by 12 again.  Good news is that Frierson is on - has hit 5 threes so far.

And just like that it's 3 point game!  Dawgs were down 12 just three possessions ago.  Three straight triples and we're down 3, 74-71, with 2:26 left in regulation.  Samford ball (w/ possession arrow).  Let's go defense!!!

Samford up 3 with 29.7 ticks left.  Their ball, baseline underneath, with 3 on the shot clock...

Tough loss tonight.  This team still has some fight left in it.  My hope is that we 'relearn' how to win, get Harris back healthy, and get on another hot streak.  No rest for the weary as a trip to Chattanooga is in order.  

Down 14 with 7 mins. to go and had a couple chances to tie it late.  Must take care of the basketball better when it matters.  Only 8 turnovers on the night but some critical live balls. 

Can we get more paint touches at Chatt and manufacture some pts. from the FT line?

Let's go get Win #10 on Sat.

Game of runs. Made some shots down the stretch but can't play much D. 2 more road losses puts us 1-7 coming home. Hope for the best, expect the worst (bad shooting nights). Can't run and gun with mediocre athletes. Bless Lew Stallworth. Great player on a so-so team.

Words escape me to describe my disappointment so far with this season.  For the past 3 years we have been saying to just wait until year 4.  That's the year for us.

So far. it's turning out to be more of the same.  DAWGs need to go 8 - 3 the next 11 games just to finish @ .500 in the SOCON.

Feel bad for these great kids, especially the SRs who have stuck it out through 4 years of losing.  Great perseverance and it will set them up  to be able to overcome adversity later in life.

With Harris out, we are missing some phyisicality in my opinion ... Brown being back has been helpful, but having Harris and Brown available would be a big difference. 


Jaxdog - I stand by my point earlier, but the frustration with where we are in comparison from the start of the season ...  If we can't take WCU and Samford, I'm not sure who we are going to get the wins against. Maybe another Against Mercer and hopefully a couple against VMI (thats only 3 more) ... Chattanooga isn't a slouch for sure and UNCG will be tough ... Maybe a 12 win season again?  I hope the boys prove me wrong.
