    West Virginia is not very good. Horns are making a bunch of silly mistakes and Hayes has two early fouls up 7-2

    This game should not be this close. 12-8 horns

    Texas simply has no clear objective on offense and just throws up whatever. Usually one pass and a contested shot. Stupid fouls abound not hustle fouls just I don’t really have a clue fouls.

    This game is terrible so far for the Horns. Totally out of control on defense and offense. No movement on offense; undisciplined on defense; jumping into the wvu shooters and fouling like crazy.

    Febres and Hayes are in foul trouble already. SMH

    Horns put wvu in the DOUBLE BONUS at the 9 minute mark of the first half. I have never seen that so early in a game.

    i can see why Tech ran wvu out of the gym. A team that plays disciplined purposeful ball on both ends of the court destroys wvu. We don’t play that way under Smart. Horns could easily be up by 10-14, instead it’s a close game.

    Wvu cannot shoot the ball. They are worse than the Horns shooting. Just stay in front of them and contest the dot without fouling. Wvu won’t make enough shots to win. Instead we just keep fouling.

    Our guys have not been taught how to play tough D without fouling. this is as hard to watch as the early loss to Radford. :(

    Royce Hamm has made the same foul while trying to set a screen on two of the last three trips down the floor. I think this is just poor coaching. After two years in the program our bigs are still unable to set a screen. WTF!?

    NO more posts for me this half. I'm going of the negative cliff and I need to talk myself away from the edge.:deadhorse:

    Horns tried like hell to play themselves into a halftime deficit, but wvu is just that bad and wouldn’t take it. Horns up at half

    Horns 6-12 from behind the arc. Only reason they are up 6. If the three’s stop falling they will lose if they play like the first half.

    Horns getting to the rim with dribble penetration and dishing off it. Finally getting some separation.

    I think Huggy Bear’s head is going to explode before this season is over. That is how bad Wvu is this year. Given that Horns have made much better decisions on the offensive end and stopped fouling on defense. Ergo a 23 point lead

    Osetkowski 0-7 FG, 0-1 3pt

    At Ramey & Roach combined 7 of 9 from behind the arc. Amazing.

    Game over, Horns win!! 2nd half shooting, especially Ramey, was outstanding. And they stopped with the ridiculous fouls. If Ramey can get this shooting to stick around awhile, the Horns will do pretty well the remainder of the season.

    Horns took care of business. Wvu defense is pretty porous so the almost complete reliance on the dribble drive is concerning against a team that plays defense. There were some good back cuts that led to easy dunks and buckets though. The offense was good against bailor and in the second half tonight (shooting was good in first half) so if that continues they could pick up some wins down the stretch. KSU is a different animal than the one they played earlier so it should be a good indicator.

    Well the Horns now have one more conference win then I thought they would so a 5-13 season ending conference record has been avoided. Real question now is, can they find the 4-5 more wins that it will likely take to get into the tournament as a 10 or 11 seed.

    Joe Lunardi has us as a 9 seed.

    Theoretically, I could see us winning every remaining game. Our most likely loss is @ Tech. If we fell into a slump, we could just as easily go 1-6, but the way the team has been scoring, I don't think that's as likely as 6-1.

    I think 4-3 before the Big 12 tournament probably has us right on the bubble. If we lost our first conference tournament game, I think we might be one of the last 4 teams selected. String together a win or two in the conference tourney and we should be a lock for a 10-11. I think Lunardi's 9-seed comes to fruition if we go 5-2 and win one more in the conference tournament.
