Beat me to it.

Lajayhawk

Mason with 1 assist to 4 turnovers. Definitely some improvement needed there. Still had a solid game, though.

Jaycon11 in reply to Lajayhawk

Agreed. I think our bigs need to anticipate the zone collapsing and find the open men.

Eric TheCapn in reply to Jaycon11

new rules = no defense or a lot of free throws

Joseph Kuebel

THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN!

Jaycon11

an underwhelming offensive performance, yet we score over 80 points. go figure.

Lajayhawk

We played a average to below-average game today, but I really like the pressure situation. We seemed to handle it well.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Tharpe FTs critical w/ way WF has shot the 3.

Eric TheCapn

The NAIL in the coffin

Lajayhawk in reply to Benton Smith

Gotcha. Thanks.

Kent Richardson

Let"s see who's money?

Lawkan

at least our worst game is against an ACC team. UK and Duke were lucky to beat small schools.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff in reply to Lajayhawk

A KU win means a 8:30 CT tip, approximately. That'd be the last game of the day.

Lajayhawk

Benton, what are the times for the games tomorrow?

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Mason and Tharpe both on floor in crunch time. Two PGs never a bad thing in tight game, late.

Lajayhawk

Wake is close to our FT numbers from the '03 title game.

Kent Richardson

Lots of bad calls.

you have got to be effing kidding me.

Eric TheCapn

FLOP

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Not what Self wanted to see there. 1:08 left and Miller-McIntyre to the line for 3 FTs after Traylor foul.

Lajayhawk

That's a terrible call.

Lajayhawk

Bullsh**

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Selden is so comfortable floating in the air off balance and finding an angle/way to get a bucket.

Lajayhawk

Tough runner.

Lajayhawk

Miller-McIntyre is a solid basketball player.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Again, MIller-McIntyre could play for any team in the country. What a luxury for this WF program trying to get back to winning ways of Tim Duncan, Chris Paul years.

Lajayhawk

Ugh.

Kent Richardson

Our subs did a better job of 3 pt. D.

Perry forcing a bit today.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

This WF squad is pretty resilient. Such a young team and isn't buckling as KU storms back toward relative normalcy in 2nd half.

Jaycon11 in reply to Lajayhawk

reminds me of a tight end.

Eric TheCapn

HE'S on FIRE!

Lajayhawk in reply to Jaycon11

Reminds me of a more powerful and better shooting Langford.

He's heating up.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Seems as though KU starters got the message with that long stretch on the bench.

Eric TheCapn

foul foul foul foul foul

Jaycon11 in reply to Lajayhawk

this. it ought to be his bread and butter this season.

Lajayhawk

Don't think they are giving enough credit to White. He's had a very solid game.

Jaycon11

fresh 5 ought to slice and dice a tired wake team.

Joseph Kuebel in reply to Eric TheCapn

YESSSSS

Lajayhawk

I love that Selden's first thought is always drive, drive, drive.

WIG

Jaycon11 in reply to Lajayhawk

ja. he's getting some time on the court the next two days.

Lajayhawk in reply to Benton Smith

BEED needs a blow.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Here comes Black. First KU starter on the floor in a long stretch. It was 46-42 when Self turned to the bench. Now 66-55. 6:17 left.

Lajayhawk

Force from Mason. Love the confidence, but I don't want to see the bad parts of TT come out in him.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Williams corner 3 keeps WF in striking distance.

Jaycon11 in reply to Lajayhawk

yeah, i'm loving it. loving. it.

Kent Richardson

Whoa.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jaycon11

To be perfectly honest, our bench might be a top 10 team. Maybe even top 5.

Eric TheCapn

The bigger the shove, the bigger the love

Jaycon11 in reply to Lajayhawk

our bench is better than a decent acc team.

Cshjhawk in reply to Benton Smith

Tharpe is looking more like the backup guard to Mason.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff in reply to Lajayhawk

Completely agree. Mason's toughness, Embiid's ridiculous skill set are a scary combo off the bench.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jaycon11

Maybe. They came in with zero energy, though. Mason, BEED and White 3 have been the difference. By far.

Jaycon11 in reply to Lajayhawk

the announcers said wiggins has a bug. I wonder if it's hit other starters, too.

Lajayhawk

Dude got ejected?

Lajayhawk in reply to Benton Smith

Even in the first half, it was this second squad that made the difference. They've clearly been the better players today.

Jaycon11

i'm afraid the pressure is more than wake can bear...

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Yikes. Not sure what WF is saying, but officials gladly handing out Ts left and right.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Ellis, Wiggins, Selden, Black, Tharpe have been on the bench for a long time. But they seem to be focused on the game and what's going on, encouraging their teammates, etc.

Lajayhawk

BEED getting pushed around a bit on the boards. Needs more HUDY time.

Jaycon11

su-weet!

Lajayhawk

Conner has looked like a dude in his early-40s since the age of 15...

Cavanaugh questioning the foul call on him. Couldn't hear if he said a magic word. But he got T'd up.

Lajayhawk

T his A up!

Joseph Kuebel

IS IT THE SHOES?

Joseph Kuebel

3 OH MY!

Lajayhawk

We need as many of these pressure games as we can get. This is very good for us.

Eric TheCapn

JAMS it in!

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Embiid FIRED up. Don't remember seeing that before. ... Wake needed that answer 3 from Cavanaugh.

Jaycon11

ouch

It's been the 2nd unit all game, guys. But thanks for paying attention....
