I have been wondering all season what Coach sees in Holland. 2 turnovers and a forced shot in 3 min. and there goes a 5 pt. lead.

The play by play announcer saying “stufferino” was the worst moment in HL broadcasting I’ve witnessed in my life. And I’m not just saying that cause an NKU player dunked on my alma mater. I’d be equally embarrassed for him if he said it for my team.

In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that basketball court out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans! (with apologies to coach boon)

I think it’s much worse. Leach has a deep voice and when he said splish splash you got the idea that he kind of knew it was silly.

But this dude who’s said stufferino twice already tonight doesn’t have a great broadcasting voice to begin with. And when he says it, it reminds me of some old guy trying to be hip talking to HS students. It’s cringeworthy.

Oh, they're both insufferable. Everyone wants a catchphrase and those are a couple of the worst.

Stating the obvious, we don’t match up well against NKU at all. If we play them in the first round of the tourney we’re toast. And now we’re in a position where we have to worry about making the league tourney. Games at Milwaukee and Green Bay will be critical.

We looked to be getting better for a while but we've lost 4 of 5 and looking at 6 of 7 after this road jaunt. Better teams lately, yes, but starting with the OU game we have certainly regressed.

That's the spirit! A big comeback win tonight and another victory over WSU at their pad. It can happen. Stranger things have...though I'm hard pressed to think of something at the moment. But I'm tired.

The refs are permitting NKU to play a physical defense. We do not have a physical player who can respond in kind. The Horizon League has a great talent in Antoine Davis and they are having their refs permit him to be manhandled and hand checked while he plays.

King, Isiani, Hamrick, and everyone but AD and McFolley are too slow and not aggressively going for the ball. Somebody just needs to hammer one of those NKU players to the floor. So what if it is a flagrant foul. Just sit down King. He's not playing well and he has no hops tonight. Put someone out there who will run through a wall to get the ball.

I'm very disappointed in the lack of effort and intensity from everyone except AD and Josh.

Hard to watch. See a lot of guys not making the extra pass. It looks like it’s an LA fitness game with are team. :cry:

may as well rest Antoine for rest of game and try again Saturday; if we do rest AD it can make an ugly game get even uglier but hopefully he be fresher for next game - try and limit the wear and tear on him

hopefully Josh didn't re-aggravate his injury, he hasn't played much this half

Wright State will be waiting for us, they thought we ran it up on them in our first meeting

even the NKU's scrubs are scoring 3s on us
