    This game gave a good glimpse of the potential and the flaws with this team. Good to learn to win together.

    Big big important minutes from Glover. I feel like he saved the day when things could have gone south in that second half.

    Champs!!!

    nice win. Hate to see us go in a shell late. Gotta keep playing. Gotta keep Keyontae involved as he’s a match up nightmare.

    Got to stop this slow ball every time we have a lead. Horrible strategy and it almost cost us another game.

    I understand trying to milk the clock, but when you break the press and have a 2 on 1, take it to the hoop vs stopping to wind the clock down and force offense at the end of the clock. Oh and stop fouling.

    I guess it will always be in our
    DNA. 10 points up with 10 min left it will be a dogfight. Good win . Always good to win tournaments!

    In the end we beat a ranked team, won the tourney and we'll likely be back in the top 25 tomorrow. Overall this is just the turnaround this team needed.

    I am not sure which was more youthful this game, the players or Mike. I think it was a bit of both. It should be a game they can learn from...and get a quality W.

    Yeah they need to work on handling that press, XU were killing Nembhard with traps. But that was a solid team, toughest opponent yet, a win any way you get it is good.

    3-0 in this tourney puts us back on track with quality wins.

    Stall ball? Agreed, we have to stop that.

    Being aggressive with a lead but in the paint using Blackshear? Yes.

    What hurts us offensively the most is being balanced with an inside-outside game. We get too tunnel-visioned on the perimter game too much.

    Plenty of time to work on our press struggles. Hell of a win.

    Things are coming together finally.

    A very good win and you can tell by the 1-point victory in 2OT that UConn is a pretty good team too. That loss in their hostile environment doesn't look as bad now as it did then.
