Some say we must win four of our last five games to have a chance at the NCAAT.    Of course, I'd love to see us win this game.   My concern, as always now, is that we will get outscored on FT and lose the game that way.   I heard that USC fouls more than any SEC team.   Its been a problem all season, and one that Frank can't seem to fix.

44-37 LSU leads at halftime....Lawson, Bryant, and Bolden have shown up for the game offensively. Kotsar with 6 pts, but he got into foul trouble and it limited his minutes. Need to play better in 2nd half - LSU fouled more than us in 1st half, but they have somehow shot the FTs, and we not so much - we're only 3-7 from the line. Seems like deja vu all over again.....

@ConwayGamecock would you agree or disagree that LSU is getting calls that they shouldn’t be?  Even AK is saying on TV he doesn’t agree with some of the calls.

Worst game USC has played in the SEC this season.   When the team should be playing its best, it is playing its worst.   WIth so many freshmen and sophomores, this really should not be surprising.   Frank can't win without good seniors and juniors.    If the team  wins more in the SEC than they lose, its probably a good year for them.   But no NCAAT.

Went to the game.

Lots of people left at the 8:00 mark in the second half, but many stayed through the end.

Kotsar and Couisnard started arguing with each other in the second half and I think that was a big part of our problem in the second half.

Maik had dark circles around his eyes and actually looked kinda sick for the game.  He didn't have his usual energy and didn't attack the rim like he usually does.

We came back back in the final minutes minutes but imploded and couldn't get the win.

We were 28/75 from the field and couldn't make our FTs.  

The one silver lining is the crowd was into it from the beginning and and at the end.  It was, of source, silent when things went flat for us, but that's human nature.

On it's own, a two-game skid in the SEC isn't bad this time of year, but it's bad because of the other OOC losses earlier in the year.

In hindsight, Kotsar got into foul trouble early in the first half and the guys left on the court figured out how to make things work in the first half for the most part.

We needed Maik driving into the paint and shooting FTs in the second half just like in the UT victory, but it didn't happen.

Not sure if it was because he didn't choose to drive or the Gs weren't passing it to him when he did, so he just rolled with it and we lost.
