Probably the worst performance of the season as the Coogs scored 15 points in the 1st half and needed a furious rally in the 4th to even make it as close as it was. Coogs can’t come out flat like this and expect to win.

Jazz was at the game. She’s still coming out so I’m guessing she’ll be back next year
