What was this idiot thinking?
All I got to say is this team has a long way to go to climb back up the mountain.
Buford, man, he has got to be one of the most frustrating players, just very careless with the ball and is not a consistent outside threat.
The achilles heel is outside shooting. That needs to change or they are going to continue to struggle on the road against even an average team. That was my early take on the team, and it continues to be a problem.
But then, when it comes down to it, a guy in the zone has led to many upsets. Tonight, that was what it came down to, no matter how much slobbering Dakich did over Leonard (it was getting Vitale gushy, ick).
But then, when you're most experienced player is also the most careless player on the floor...
