and still made a run, with having a chance to win, and with the ball at the end. Wish Rotegaard has jsut taken a shot, at 6'7" he could of got it off and not double teamed, understandable to try to get into Murray's hands
Injury plague finally took a tool, Traore going out set up a stretch where we made a bunch of forced and unforced TOs. Those 1st half TOs did us in.
I'd rather not even see us play in the NIT, for this group I really don't see any plus side. They proved everything they needed to prove, and not sure with how badly banged up some guys are that another game or two against a Santa Clara or some lower run Pac-12 team really accomplisheds.
Last two weeks had some great finishes, leave it at that.
Jones, Traore, Murray are a great core, and solid contributions with Mansel (matured), Rotegaard, Scott. Add a developing big, and another ball handler, if at least one impact player is added, they could compete for a Big West title again.
