Tech vs ISU last night

  • Missed the game but saw the highlights. Anyone see the end?

    Tech got the ball after a missed FT and their best player Evans drives down the court for a potential game tying/game winning shot. Stops at the 3 point line, passes it off to their 2nd best player Zach Smith who doesn’t take the 3 point shot. He passes the ball backwards to Thomas with zero time left who heaves a shot well after time has run out and makes it. Epic decision making failures in that one. For a bubble team that desperately needed the win…

    Really poor execution. With the time left they had time for 1 or maybe 2 passes and I have to think the coaching staff told them so an sure enough he makes a third pass and run out of time. A bad shot would have been better than no shot at all. They did have a nice come back to send the game into OT but they had some seriously bad turnovers including missing the layup on a 3 on 1 break and getting the ball stolen under the basket. The parity in the conference is amazing.

    They have made a habit of losing close games. KU, West Virginia, now ISU all in the last week. Epic collapse for a team that has tournament talent but can’t close games

  • @BeddieKU23

    They probably still don’t have the winning mindset after being bad for so long. KU appears to have mastered the art of winning close games…hopefully it will come handy in March…

  • @JayHawkFanToo

    Surprising because its a veteran team that made the tournament last year.

  • @BeddieKU23 I watched it, tech had their chances. That may have popped their bubble IMO.

  • @kjayhawks

    Agreed, they needed that quality win bad. I still don’t think they have a single road win and the non-conference was full of puff pastries.
