Wow.  I'll take 50 points at the half!  50-49 Dogs.  Where in the world did Kern come from?  7 3's I think?  (along with a couple of other points).

Still a hard row to plow against a 24 win team, but I'm watching it!

Go Dogs!!

Best half since December. Have to outscore them because we play no D.

Well, we just has a 10-0 run!  60-49 to start the half!  Kern is on fire - looks like the best game of his college career I would imagine.

Typing fast - "had" a 10 pt run.   Now it 21-7 run in the 2nd half.  3's continue to fall for the Dogs. Looks like the early season.

Living by the 3 sure beats dying by it.

They're catching up though, hitting a flurry of their own 3's.  Closed to 6, now 8.  Come on Dogs - this would be a BIG win if they can hang on.

Wow. We were up 16 and now they're up by 2.  Guess having the lead is entirely too unfamiliar.  

Can't believe the call that just happened.  To my untrained eye the UNCG player flopped, and we got a flagrant called against us.  He missed both but they got ball and scored.

Wow.  That was a hard one to lose.  Best game I've seen the Dogs play in a long time, but came up short.  Hard to get that foul on Stallworth as he went back up for the shot with seconds to go.  I actually thought he was fouled.  That changed the final 30 seconds.  Can't fault the refs though - believe they called a good game.  

Can they take this play into the tournament?  Win at VMI and see what happens.

Great game by Kern though - 10 threes.

This was by far their best game of 2019, and their best performance since beating High Point in December, yet it still was not good enough to beat the #2 team in the SOCON, even by making 22 3s & shooting over 50% from beyond the arc. Kern finally played & shot the ball like was expected when Baucom brought him in.  Where has this been all season!?!?!?!?!?!

Shot over 60% from 3 in the 1st half & only had a 1 point lead.  Blew a 16 point lead in the 2nd half.  WHY?  3 point shooting tapered off just a little, & we were doomed.  Allowed UNCG to quickly get back in the game.

What this tells me, is that no matter how good we play, how well we shoot the 3, we can not beat the top teams in the SOCON playing this style of ball. WHY?  because the top teams in the SOCON can shoot the 3 as well or better than we can!  Unless we can shoot over 60% from beyond the arc, then maybe we win a few.

Need to try a different approach next year.  I'm thinking bring in 3 Grad transfers like Stallworth and play all of them at the same time! Imagine how hard it would be to stop 3 guys that can  get to the basket like that AND hit the occasional 3!

That was fun to watch!
A few thoughts..

Lew is the engine and had a nice lead when he was passing. We’ve lost leads and games when he stops passing. He’s had to score all year but as a team, we’re good when he’s more of a true point guard

Brown and Zane are undersized but play so hard. They seem to foul out or get in foul trouble every night

Wanted to see “where has he been?” In reference to Kern. Just looked and he has highest 3 pt % on team...just doesn’t shoot as much

SOCON officiating is terrible. We deserved a better fate. Coach took the high road post game but officiating has been a huge factor

Rice has had a solid year and could prob be utilized as a stretch 4 with his length

Summery...We are what we are
Undersized
Inconsistent from 3
Selfish when we lose, Sharing when we won early
Well coached when they listen
Illnesses, injuries and discipline have taken their toll

This is a perfect example of “what could’ve been,” but effort has never been in question
