    Well, we effectively lost on Ponds' half court shot made at the buzzer. Seems about right for us.

    Up by what - 16 in the 2nd half and lost. Ponds had 37 points. You just can't lose that way. And to lose by 3 when they made a half court shot at the buzzer. LOL.

    Frustrating game. Played so well for 3/4 of the game and then just melt down.

    Should have been an easy win up 16 with only one good player on SJU, but it was lost when we started playing 30 second half court offense to limit the number of possessions for each team that early in the half. That strategy works when you're up 16 with 3 minutes to play, not 16.

    Pastner's luster from year 1 has worn off. This team has no identity except for defense. Offense is a joke. But the main issue is TALENT. Our roster lacks it. We have 3 acc caliber players. The worst part is we have nothing coming in. Our one commit doesn't even start for his juco team.

    Seemed good at the start of the second, until Jose’s technical foul. Then, we got away from our play in the paint.
    If you believe in halftime adjustments, this game might fit.

    you can be as harsh as you want and its well deserved. Pastner looks like he doesn't have a clue. All he talked about preseason was playing fast. We haven't done that yet and his slowdown and run clock today blew the damn game.

    The main issue isn't talent. It's experience. Both just in general and experience playing together.

    Ugh I forgot about the playing fast playing fast playing fast comment he iterates. Why weren't we playing fast the last 16 minutes of the second half? Need a good explanation or undertaking of blame by Pastner on that.

    Really, the talent looked just fine in the first half. Young guys are inconsistent, simply as that. Let’s not act like St. John’s isn’t a talented team. Anyone with a brain knew they were gonna make a run.

    Are you going to say the same thing over and over again? You’re beginning to sound like a broken record.

    Given the current talent level, the absolute disaster of a recruiting class, and the talent level of the other ACC teams, it just doesn't look like there's a light at the end of the tunnel here for Pastner. I'm so tired of the recruiting excuses.

    Our b-ball program is embarrassing and has been for a while. There is no buzz or reasons to be excited. We going to rebuild forever? It’s been 10 years since our last bid. I’m done sugar coating this situation. No excuses make 10 years of irrelevancy ok with the advantages/history we have in this sport.

    All it is, is excuses now. Every recruit we don't get is because of shady stuff. I saw this same thing happened to Bruce Weber and the Illinois program and he ran their recruiting into the dumpster.

    Disapointing to put it mildly. One we could have and should have had.

    First, give Ponds some credit. He took on the challenge and got to the paint at will. Now I still want to know how he got the James Hardin treatment from the refs but regardless he played really well.

    IMHO this was still more about us - we have no offensive identity and St. Johns pressured us out of any semblance of an offense. It was pretty obvious we had a huge advantage in the paint but they put so much pressure on the ball we could not get the ball inside. We should not be able to be pressured that badly but we also need to have more structure in what we do to help alleviate ball pressure. We depend on simple spacing way too much.

    With the double Ts and pressure we played hero ball WAY too much. Jose was the biggest offender but others did it as well. This goes back to needing more structure. We are not at the play old status yet to play this way. With our hero ball we were out of position and they got into transition. Would not have happened if we were in system getting good shots - especially if Banks were shooting.

    All in all a really disapointing game.

    You can say no more excuses but what do you suggest to do to stop rebuilding right now? We threw away 5 years with gregory and probably stuck with Hewitt several years too long. It wasn't going to be a quick rebuild following what gregory left no matter how you look at it.
