Heck of a game and good to see Bandoumel redeem himself after a couple of bonehead plays (foul and turnover) late in regulation. Throws up a 3 point prayer that becomes the game winner. Good job playing D and not fouling at the end

Gutsy win by our guys. Looked to me like they just lost their legs in that 2nd half but managed to hang on in the end. After that hot shooting 1st half, they couldn't buy a three in 2nd half and missed wide open look after wide open look that could have put this one away. To their credit, they scored in the paint tonight and needed every point! I kept saying "just win by one" and I will be happy!

Crazy how the Jank haters hate him more than they love our team to the extent they can’t even celebrate a huge win.

Only complaint I have is that we didn't get a good shot near the end of regulation after calling a TO with 9 seconds left on shot clock. That's a glaring difference between Jank and Larry Brown. I think he tried to rest Davis in 1st half to make sure he would be there in the end but same thing...Houston tried to take him out at crunch time. I thought Jolly really stepped up tonight.

Fun game and great win! Nice to break the 5 game losing streak and our guys deserved the win. The foul on the 3 in regulation was certainly unfortunate, but they persevered

Rewatching that shot by Bandoumel...amazing. Bet he couldn't do it again but it was great. Nice gutsy quad 1 win and only one game out of first.

Believe me, there is plenty to complain about in terms of coaching decisions and boneheaded fouls by Bandoumel and Davis. However, how can you not be very happy after a huge win against the best team in the conference?

I'd like to think the Jank haters will be silenced...at least until this team loses another game!

I don’t think Tim Jankovitch is the man for the job, but I never want SMU to lose. I hate the damage he’s done to the program, but I don’t hate him. I would love for him to prove me wrong and this would be a great year to prove it because we have the talent to beat any team in the conference in a down year.

Yank Jank haters are delusional that LB or his evil twin that resides on our twin planet that orbits
the sun opposite so it is always hidden will come back to SMU if Jank is fired. :lol: :lol:
