Full Court Press with Coach K

Hello all.  This past week we only played one game.  We had Thursday off and played at the University of the Ozarks on Saturday afternoon.

Just a week earlier, we lost to the Eagles at home and we went up to their place looking to take one from them.  Despite having five of our players in double-digit scoring, we lost the game 66-79.  We fought and battled hard the entire forty minutes of the game.  The bottom line is that we didn’t rebound.  We were out rebounded 46-58. We gave up 25 offensive boards to the Eagles.  Our defense was good, but we didn’t finish with a rebound.

We had Sunday off and today in practice we will only do rebounding drills.  It is simply unacceptable for us to lose another game due to rebounding.

Tuesday our focus will turn to LeTourneau University. 

Thursday, February 9th is our WBCA Pink Zone ® game.  The players will wear their pink shooting shirts and other pink accessories. Fans are encouraged to wear pink in support of breast cancer research.  

Our game on Saturday, February 11th is against UT-Tyler and it’s also when both men’s and women’s basketball will honor our seniors. 

We have four games left this season. Two at home and then we’ll finish with two on the road.  Hopefully in the last few blogs I’ll be able to report some great wins to you.

Hope you enjoy the quote for the week.
