Refs made some bad calls. But we shot more free throws than they did even though we’ve fouled them so many times in OT to stop the clock. And they about doubled percentage of makes. We can only blame ourselves for this one. Missed free throws have frustrated many of us fans all year. Tonight they did us in.
Can’t beat getting a matchup with an 11 seed in the sweet 16. Best draw you can get as a 2. Just didn’t bring it tonight. It was a fun season and great to win the SEC and so many games. No doubt about it. I was a little skeptical of all folks picking us in the final 4, but I think if we played great ball every night, we had a chance. Playing great ball every night is the tough part. Can’t have an off night or lose focus on any fundamentals or effort any night or you’re done. Here’s to next year!
Regular Season SEC Champions
SEC Tournament Champions
Before the season, I would have taken just 1 of those, and been really happy. In the end, we got all 3. Tonight was disappointing... the offense was bad, the free throw shooting was awful, and a couple of guys who got them to that point really struggled. But I'll remember the 2021 team as the team that changed the culture and planted the Script A flag back on top of the SEC Mountain. This program is back where we hoped it would be.
Shooting from charity stripe reminds me of FG kicking ........... FTs was undoingJones and Shack combined for 3-11 and 8 points. 14 turnovers and 14 missed free throws for the team. Spells disaster. We were lucky to even be in this game at the end. We’re not in it in OT. Ugly exit to an 11 seed. They have the better team tonight.
I have been thinking the same @PurlJam. Hope that is the case for sure. I refrained from saying much last night because well I was extremely frustrated with the way the team lost the game.Tough loss there.... hit our FT's and it's a blowout, but great season overall. Won the SEC regular season followed up by the SEC tournament championship in CNO 2nd season.... having a little deja vu with this team/basketball and the 2008 football season and we all know how that turned out.
