Glad to hear Jank was concerned/disappointed with last night's performance and I like what he had to say. I had the same thought watching that 1st half, i.e., our guys came out playing highlight/hero basketball and got away from the LB philosophy of moving/sharing the ball and giving up good looks to get great looks offensively. D was good at times but as Jank says, guys are still learning to play together and communication was not good at times.

I do like what I see from this team and it appears they are getting better as the season goes on, just as you would hope. Bring on Georgetown...and I hope Moody has more energy Saturday night!
