I'm with Creighton fans that Kaluma doesn't need to shoot 3s.

Yeah, Kaluma didn't exactly live down his Creighton rep tonight...

Collier didn’t score in the second half.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

There's more than enough time to make a comeback.

Schooled them on the boards all night and then give up to O-boards late.

A win would have been great, but I ain't panicking yet.  I saw some good pieces there among the bad bits.  We'll see what happens.

Good things were the play from the centers, first half rebounding and second-half Perry.

Bad things were second-half defense, first-half shooting, first-half sloppy ballhandling, Kaluma jump shooting (drive to the basket gottdamnit).
Cam was OK, but got himself in foul trouble. RJ and Dai Dai got their baptism. Manning and Rich didn't get enough minutes to make judgment.

Missed Tomlin big time and probably Glover, too.

We just need to figure out who our go-to guys are. Lots of jyc dudes out there. Will be a fun team to follow.

As disappointing as the Cats were, they weren't eight turnovers in the final minute to lose to -- check notes -- Abilene Christian. Ah but I've been assured Boynton's job is secure from the same expert who said last winter there was no way Finister could red shirt when it was blatantly obvious that was what Tang was planning to do.

I disagree that we missed tomlin that much.  we played well on the interior.  as a matter of fact, the biggest takeaway from this  crap show was that we’re not one dimensional in the paint.

this game was defined by our inability to keep up with their guards who put up almost 60 points against us.

we’re a new team but so is usc.


Cheesy Mustache QB might make an appearance.

New warning: Don't get in a fight with someone who doesn't even need to bother to buy ink.

Yea our guard play is really concerning without The Glove.

USC returned Ellis and Johnson and added Collier. We could definitely use another experienced guard but also should still be good this season without one imo.

The last 6 minutes of the first half when Cam was on the bench with two fouls was very telling of how impactful he is. It went from 23-20 to 40-27 until Perry hit the buzzer at half.  Essentially for six minutes we got outscored 17-4.

They showed that they could stay out of foul trouble in the first half, and could draw fouls from the opposition.  The shooting will improve.

We outrebounded a team that smoked us.  I feel pretty good about that.  The hustle was there.

Very weird game. I didn't feel like the cats played poorly, but somehow the game seemed out of reach the entire second half.

Tomlin minutes for the turnover prone and bricklaying Kaluma would have been a godsend.
