“Sometimes, it comes down to that. A lot of the wins we’ve had, how did we win those games? I thought the toughest team won those games. I thought (Thursday night) the toughest team won that game.”

Home game? SWC Tournament was held in the Summit, not Hofheinz.

Yeah, I thought that was a bit strange


I think you’re right. Was that the game we won when Ron Brewer of Arkansas missed the front end of a one and one, and we took the ball the length of the court and hit a layup just before the buzzer?

No, that was several years before that when Cecile Rose hit the game winner. That was also the Friday nite semifinals I’m almost certain

Here’s the update after I messaged JD

We lost on the road after beating Baylor? Yeah, 73-68 at #12 Arkansas. Wow, we only beat Rice 53-50 in the SWC Tourney.

We weren’t great on the offensive side that year. We won because of Hakeem’s dominating defense.


We were up 43-30. I don’t think preparation was an issue.

Memphis shooters were unconscious. The D, for most shots, was right in the face of the Memphis shooter. They just could not miss.

They usually shoot 29.6% from three point land. They shot 58%.
A guy who had three three pointers all year made four in a row. The same guy shoots 50% from the FT line and he goes 9 for 9.

Throw is the fact that the officials called 8 fouls in the first TWO minutes of the second half as a start to Memphos getting the double bonus for 12:30 and there is nothing but a free throw contest. And Memphis scored 29 from the line.
Yes, we foul a lot. But the first and second half were night and day from the officials. Not sure we changed much. But Memphis HIT their FTs.

So, I’m not that worried. I don’t think the officials call it like that again. It just deflated all of the energy.

Apparently Thornton ate his Wheaties last week; kid continued his hot shooting against UCONN. Was a 29% 3 point shooter before last week began.
