Rockets Smoke Falcons
we are 10 point dogs. Maybe tonight is the night...
Not so much. UT wins 64-48. That's right, 48. 22 TOs, 23 fouls. We shoot 36.5%...Coach said we had open looks and missed them. Rockets shoot even worse, but they hang onto the ball and make 13 more Fts, and that's the story.
Samarco goes 4-14 from the field. Nate Miller has 11 points and 11 boards.
That makes us 2-14 in our last 16 MAC games....the equivalent of an entire MAC season. It is 10 straight on the road. That's right...January 26, 2006, more than a year ago, was our last road win in the MAC...(@Kent, if it matters).
I don't know what to say. We led 15-12 in this one, but once UT surged ahead, it was never close. We got it down to 6 in the second half, but UT was in control the whole way.
The next three games are against the worst teams in the MAC. Sadly, two of them are on the road. We're @ NIU on Wednesday, then EMU comes to AA on Saturday, and then we go to Buffalo. Following the Bracket Buster, we come home with OU, @Akron, Kent, and Miami--tough sledding, even with three at home.
If we're going to get any wins at all, it feels like they are going to have to come in the next three games. Unfortunately, they look at us the same way.
