Tough fought game ...

WSU leads big early, and after our comeback, never gave up.

No, no no no no no. I know this scenario. Next game, they're back to their Pitt-playing selves, and they lose. That's the worst part.

When they counted no less. Other than some confusion whether they were playing football or basketball, we can't argue with their defense nor absolutely shooting lights out from the 3 in the stretch.

Someone help me understand what that call was on the inbound when we got whistled and turned it over. That was very bad timing whatever it was.

+1. I think they go back to shooting 2 of 17 from 3 and lose...

sense after the game. He said every team in the country knows GU. They know the story. They know the style. They know the names of the players. They waited all year for this chance. They went for it. Every waking moment.

Those 6-7 treys from 2-3 different guys, in a row at the end, were like out of some movie. Just stunning. A nightmare all by themselves. History in the making for WSU. ANd the kid that did the most damage was a redshirt freshman.

incredible.

We took their strength (off rebounding) almost completely away. ANd they took EH almost completely out of the game. tit for tat, just about all the way, except for those treys.

Helluva game. No real shame. They even summoned the will among their very green, seldom shooting, free throw shooters to make their shots.

Hell they did everything they could do and they won it. Hats off.

I think I'll take this away and stow the rest. We did not adjust to being ranked this high. We play better as underdogs. We weren't as good as advertised. I think we could have been but we could not get to that level that just turns killer, sinks its teeth into the other team, and never lets go.

That element is missing. Still.

Griz zag....Harris inbounded the ball to Stockton. Stockton received ball in the playing court. He then took two steps carrying t,he ball out of bounds..could have been called travel or out of bounds
