Frustrating, again. I see talent ,certainly enough to compete in this league but we are ohhhh and four. Losing has become my expectation . Hand the keys to Allison....

Honest question. Is fox really in charge of this team? Shabazz is 15-48 over his last three games and 4-19 from three and he hands down takes waaaaay more shots than anyone else. I’m not ragging on the kid but ar some point fox needs to tell him this isn’t the nbdl and every game isn’t some sort of pro audition. That’s one of many glaring isssues I have with fox

It was funny, the team had like 9 points in the first 10 minutes of the game and looked lethargic like Thursday. Then Drink gave a speech at the U8 timeout and asked fans to support Coach Fox and the basketball team. After that, the team played inspired ball.

Basically, Drink got the basketball team to play harder than Fox has so far this month.

It was telling seeing Ronshad being subbed off for Battle before defensive possessions late in the game. I don't think Ronshad and Fox are on the same page, especially considering Ronshad doesn't want to play defense.

Shabazz is going to fit well in the NBA with his 14% shooting and no defense...

Our defense down the stretch was fine but can’t go scoreless five straight possessions at the end and expect to win.

On plus side our next three games are probably the most winnable if the conference slate thus far. Here’s hoping we can take a couple!

No one is exactly running away with the sunbelt right now anyway.

The problem is that they are on the road, a place we have yet to win.

We've had many winnable games blown in the past 4 years. Usually occurs in the last 5 minutes on Shabazz shooting threes. I don't have much confidence in Division 1 winnable games anymore.

Team played pretty good, Isaac Johnson played really good, officiating was very good, Jake Wilson deserves some credit, just did not win! Once we get a win or two, would not want to play us. Please keep supporting the team! “Drink” was impressive to meet and listen to.

Right now, we're the team to beat in the Sun Belt. Everyone in the Sun Belt is beating us.

I hope the MBB doesn't file a Title 9 complaint against the WBB since they are winning 😘😉😉

If this team loses at Coastal, then loses at stAte and Little Rock, they will be 5-15 and 0-7 in league. Ugh.

And only 2-15 against Division I opponents. Double ugh.
