I do agree with you about the tired legs. Good observation.
Missing Yeguete last night also really hurt our defense. He would have provided a better matchup against McRae or freed up Prather to do so.
Our problems right now do have a lot to do with injuries. They also have a lot to do with struggling on the road and not doing well closing out close games. We know we will get the injured players back, hopefully by Saturday. Let's hope that allows us to focus on building our skills in tight games, because we will have some of those in March.
Having our core 8 players gives Billy D a lot of flexibility, something that I expect we will see again come NCAA tournament
