    I don't think they lost because of the refs.

        There’s never ONE reason why teams lose games. There’s multiple but a big reason we lost was because of the officials. Another big reason we lost is because we couldn’t convert at the rim a whole lot of going up soft by the rim tonight.

          Memphis would have beaten us regardless of the officiating. They're a pretty decent team and it's a conference road game.

          You'll be happy to know that virtually all of the national press that was at or watched that game agreed with our fan base this time around. Many of them were of the opinion that it was the worst officiated game they'd seen all year. The T was ridiculous even though Brannen was trying to get one. All he did was stomp on the floor and yell. He said during postgame he didn't even swear at the referee. I kinda hope he goes off on Curtis Shaw and the league office and draws a fine. The level of officiating in that game was inexcusably bad and it's time the league did something about its' crappy officials.

            Pretty hard to watch last night. Lots of missed point blank layups and stick backs, missed free throws, poor passing into the post, turnovers, etc. I'm sure Memphis' length had a lot to do with it.
            We're in a year of transition as everyone knows. I'm looking forward in a couple years to having a roster of guys that have basketball skills and know how to put the ball in the basket.

              We have 4 basketball players. Memphis had 6 or 7....loss. This year is over. I am done worrying about if we will make a tourney. CJB was playing his best 5 in a must win and it wasn't enough. Might as as well play the bench and see what we have and hope for next year.

              Memphis may lose here but we are not beating them.

                It's very true. The reason we lose on the road is we do not have any perimeter game at all. You can't get a lot of breathing room inside when you shoot so, so poorly. Their two wings knocked down 7 3pt's. Jaevin, Woods, and Keith a combined 6/23. Scott was obviously awful, but they were not far behind. You can't win on the road with 49 pts. It's a recurring theme.

                  We knew going in that Memphis was more than likely a loss. As Cjb said in his pre game presser they are loaded with talent ( two lottery picks). We have two grad transfers that couldnt score two points if they dropped the ball from above the rim. But I also think that believing Van Exel could do anything that would improve this team is short sighted at best.

                    I don't think the technical was as poorly timed as some have said. The air was out of our balloon already by that point in my opinion. I DO like one psychological component of the T. Much has been made about the possible tension between Jarron and CJB. It conveys a very positive message that coach would get T'd defending Jarron.

                      One of the keys was the necessity of subbing in the second half. Right after the Cats ran off on their 18-2 skein to take the lead, some of them needed to rest. They were on adrenaline. But, the subs were so overmatched that the lead turned into a 9-point deficit in less than 2 minutes. Brannen had to get the starters back in. By that time, they were chasing their tails and never caught up again.

                      The officiating was awful, but in the end, lack of depth killed their chances. The three points from the bench, by Jaevin Cumberland during garbage time, spelled doom.

                        Despite the loss it was nice to see the Bearcats fight back in the second half to overcome a sizable deficit and take the lead
                        "In the morning he would read the Bible with another coach. Then, in the afternoon, he would go out and cheat kids who had probably saved up money from mowing lawns to buy those raffle tickets. That's Jim Tressel." - former colleague to Jim Tressel as quoted in Sports Illustrated.

                          This is the ONLY way to look at it! Shows they are capable of hanging with top teams (Ohio State as well). Work on TO's and FT's and they will win more games. We are missing Brooks to be honest.

                            Re the Cats folding at the end of the second half, as already noted this indeed did occur after the subs entered the game. I wondered at the time if it was the right thing to do. Things were going so well with the regulars, why change? They didn't look tired to me. I guess Brannen thought they needed a blow, but in retrospect, it could hardly have turned out worse if the regulars had stayed in.
