At this point, it looks like the guys who were recruited after that run, though higher ranked, don't have the hunger and desire of the earlier group. At this point they don't wanna defend or rebound; shameful that Tx So beat them by 9 on the boards. Payton Pritchard hass to be bummed. But the Ducks have often struggled early (F4 team started 1-2) and been a different team by feb. So we'll see.

Makes GU's consistency all the remarkable by comparison.
