Got a little closer then I would have liked
Have to work on FT shooting
Really shouldn't have been that close. The Gator's free throw shooting early in the game was the main reason Kansas was within 9 with 2 minutes to play. Curiously, outstanding clutch free throw shooting by Prather and Hill at the end won the game. 50% on 3 pointers didn't hurt any.
It just goes to show you how misleading that "close" game statistic is.
It wasn't really close, and it shouldn't have been.
Nice when you can shoot free throws as poorly as we did and still beat Kansas.
Does that mean monkey off back? Or does it have to be in a neutral site or on road to officially be off?
We shot poorly from the field too...and still won...and Wiggins had his best game of the year. THATS great news for us.
Thrilled we won, but we had a 12 point lead with three minutes left and won by 6.
Don't think this goes in the close game column.
could have very easily melted down when wiggins started draining threes
This is why the whole idea of being "clutch" is a fallacy -- something that has been proven in statistics over and over again. A team is "clutch" if they win by less than ten. A better team would have won by more than ten. If you lose a lot of close games, that just means you are good enough to overcome bad games and still play other teams close.
If we had blown a 12 point lead in the final three minutes at home it would have been the biggest meltdown we have ever had, at least that I know of.
It got down to 4 at one point did it not? With our free throw shooting, that very close
Wait, so if we lost the game, would that not count as a close loss?
Do other games where it was a 5-8 point margin most of the game, but then go up 10+ at the end due to the fouling/FT end game count as close wins?
It was 4 points for one possession in the last 30 minutes, was never a one possession game and they never had the ball with a chance to make it closer. We were never going to lose tonight.
But I agree our FT shooting made it closer than it should have been and gave me more heartburn than I wanted.
Bottom line though is we won, Kansas had the 2nd best RPI at realtimerpi.com coming into tonight. So a big win regardless.
Never really seemed in doubt, even with the shaky FT shooting. Ugly game at the end with all the intentional fouls, which is the part of the game I dislike
Yet another reason why Brockway's bogus soapbox is meaningless. Winning a game by five may in fact reflect a late game surge by a team desperately trying to draw close, not a final shot scenario. A deciding possession inside of a minute would be far better, but that takes a little more work.
Better then losing a close one.
Um yeah. I'd take last year's 25 point beatdowns any day.
