Fell behind by too much and couldn’t come all the way back. Not a bad loss, FGCU is solid, but the shooting was missing again as UH only hit 41% from 2 and 26% from 3.

It seems that the ladies are always on a furious comeback in the 4th quarter…

This is kinda worrisome. We were projected to finish 3rd in the conference. And this doesn’t have anything to do with lack of size. With the new Fertitta Center, coach Hughley will be more under the microscope. He also unfollowed me on Twitter, not being petty, tho.

It is a bit worrisome, not sure why we can’t shoot this year. Team is playing about the same otherwise.
