    This is a bad loss. Mike White’s teams continue to disappoint. How long do we accept mediocre teams? Was Scottie Lewis really a 5 star?

    A few good wins is not enough in my opinion. I think we should compete for championships which we just haven’t done under White.

    I don't think so. I think they had a good game and we didn't. Our record still looks a lot better than theirs does.

    Lewis is an elite defender and can be a scorer when in rhythm. Offense is slower to develop anyway but he absolutely is a 5 star.

    This team has a lot of talent but the coach has to trust them and stop trying to control every action at the end of ball games. Let our guards control that. They do great, except when they're directed otherwise.....

    I like White and really want him to succeed. But I stick with my reversion to the mean. White has a consistent track record of really good wins and really bad losses.

    I don't say MW is not to blame somewhat but our shooting and ball handling at the end of the game cost us this one. We were put in a position to win and couldn't get it done.

    He is not an elite defender. He jumps plays and puts himself out of position causing his teammates to suffer defensively. Like they said during the game, a good defensive team is 5 guys playing and moving together. This game was a bad loss and Mike White’s uber talented teams continue to struggle with being consistently good.

    I know every game is different. But it is hard to understand how they can beat ranked teams like West Virginia on the road and blow out Tennessee at home and then lose to South Carolina. Seems like Jekyll and Hyde.

    We had inexplicable losses with Billy. It happens. Doesn't mean people shouldn't complain but it's not an unknown phenomenon.

    7 points from our bench to their 21 bench points.

    Mann and Appleby played too many minutes and got tired at the end.

    Ball game.

    For most of these guys they never put any blame on the players only Mike White. When the Gator win they don't show up most times.

    Being without Duruji contributed to that.

    We still had them and that's the point I was making. We had a terrible loss in our run to the NC.
