This was just more of the same weíve seen for the last two months. I do think we played harder and tougher today than we have been, but we very much looked like a team with one really good player and a bunch of guys who are borderline rotation guys. Really terrible job by Lon this year. He had no answers. If I felt we had an up arrow for next year it would be easier to accept. But Iíll be shocked if we arenít dead last in B12 next year. Cupboard is empty.

Some of our better 'on paper' recruits do not play anything close to their HS rankings.

James, Odomes, Mcgusty.

These are Top 150 players. Mcgusty is a top 50 player in HS.

Could be some tough years ahead

Exactly. Left hand shooter, Odomes was playing him on his left hand side and still let the guy get an open look.

No...the refs didn't. The only questionable call i saw was the 5tyh foul on james..got ball..but they'll call it 90% of the time swiping like that.

Ty took 2 horrible ****s in OT...maybe did ok the rest of the time...but those were crucial moments.

Look at the Associated Press story on the game:

Rhode Island shuts down Young, Oklahoma in 83-78 win
...
The 10th-seeded Sooners (18-14) late-season fade ended with a thud when Young failed to carry them as he had so many times this season.
I don't know how you can write something like that with a straight face.

Kind of reminds me of Eeyor. Bad stuff happens to him constantly and he just mopes around.

The D effort was good AT TIMES. You could tell in the second half when our intensity dropped. RI got better shots, got more comfortable, and starting making them. It just amazes me that we can't get open shot for our guys, or especially TY, but RI had open looks all day, especially their best players. Goes back to the crap offense we run. OU doesn't have the talent, even with TY, to not run some specific sets and plays designed to get guys open. Simply relying on the players to consistently create for themselves is a not the answer.

Defense was really good till we sat McNeace somewhere in the 2nd half and didn't bring him back till it was too late and our defensive intensity never really came back. I will say McNeace showed a ton of promise if he could play like he did the first 30 minutes of the game or so. He was effecting almost every shot inside. He got cheated on a goal tend call too.

That was a terrible call. It was clear it didn't hit the backboard first.
And it was him I think that got called for a foul on a block that was all ball.

I'm tired of Lon's passiveness. There is a reason coaches like Self, huggins, Cal, and Roy get the calls.
