    That was tough to watch. We didn't shoot well, but I was very unimpressed with our offense. A lot of bad/forced shots. I understand why Pope would be playing so many players right now, trying to figure out what's the best rotation and which players will step forward. But I hope he cuts it back significantly. We need more consistency with the same players on the floor. I think I'd go Barcello, Averette, Knell, Harding, Johnson at the guards and Haarms, Lohner, Lee at the bigs and leave it at that.

    They're going to be a lot better than they showed today. There's not a lot of chemistry yet. They haven't settled on a rotation yet, haven't figured out yet how to best utilize Haarms, and haven't figured how to use both Barcello and Averette together. And Lohner will get nothing but better. This team has better length than we typically have. Better rebounding than we typically have and a ton more depth than we typically have. It might not be a team that will go deep in the tournament, but it's a team that's going to be a lot better team than we're used to.

    ha. I think we'll be fine this year. USC really disrupted our offense in a sustained manner. I suspect that won't happen too often now that Coach obviously sees that's something to work on/eliminate.

    George had the best game of any Cougar, which isn't saying much. He wasn't intimidated by their size or athleticism. He did get jobbed by the officials near the end of the first half. He went up for a shot on the baseline and the defender got a little bit of ball and a lot of his arm, sending George onto his back. No call.

    Lots of open looks with very few makes. In addition, it didn't seem that they rebounded very well (in spite of lots of offensive rebound opportunities). They also had lots of unforced errors - two guys going after a rebound and knocking it to a Trojan, getting a steal and then losing it out of bounds, passing the ball out of bounds or to a guy who isn't looking/expecting it, etc.

    Hopefully it was just jitters and they play a lot better tomorrow.

    End of 1st half and beginning of second half were brutal.

    Barcello's lack of height was definitely a liability this game.

    Our bigs have to either finish down low or draw the foul. They had some good looks and just couldn't add value.

    Haarms tweaked his ankle, but played afterward, so that's good.

    Gideon George actually provided a bit of a spark when no one else would. In the first three games, I noticed that sometimes folks were hesitant to pass him the ball and wondered why. Well, I think it's because it's hard to get the ball back from him. But if the shots drop....

My impression is that he's trying not to make mistakes offensively, when he really just needs to trust his instincts a bit more, and take good shots when they're presented to him. I like his hustle.
    I think word you are searching for the word "experience". This will be a good team, but they don't know each other well enough to trust each other. That will come.
