And that all of our guys stink and Calhoun is over the hill and blah blah blah.

But we lost by 5 because we missed 6 free throws and had as many free throws made as turnovers; 11. We also shot 11.1% from three. That is why we lost. Not because Shabazz is a mediocre PG, although he didn't have a good game yesterday, not because our bigs suck, or all that other Chicken Little BS.

They lost because they didn't play good defense and made some bad decisions on offense. Happens........they're young..........they will move on and see how they react against FSU today then we can all chat again.

Six missed free throws and 11 turnovers are very acceptable numbers for a 40-minute game. Unless you expect us to make 100 percent of our foul shots and never turn it over, in which case you'll be frequently disappointed. The poor three-point shooting and not getting to the line enough were issues. But this one isn't a game you look for answers from the stat sheet - you watch our poor execution at both ends of the floor in the final 10 minutes and get all the answers you need.

What I expect today:

1)Fewer three-point shots by Lamb and Daniels.

2) Tighter perimeter "D" and help defense.

3) Building off yesterday's inside game

4) More fouls due to tighter Defense
