They're taking open shots. They'rd not actually this bad at shooting because no team is.

Just short term variance. Remember when the rockets missed 27 in a row

I'll be surprised if we aren't in the bottom 3 in the conference in shooting percentage.

Chingon you’re  a math guy, you’re better than to think that. They’re good at fts which is a good indicator for 3

Ark shooting 37 percent, Cats 36
Ark 3-22 from 3, Cats 2-19

Both teams suck at shooting

It's too early to assume there's some higher mean that we will tend to. It's perfectly possible our mean shooting percentage is pretty damn low. 

But to be fair it could also be higher.

I'm just frustrated... We should be better than this

If the cats could hit 3's at somewhat respectable they could win, Arky can't do crap in the second half

We are winning the crap out of the 2nd half. If you told me we’d go 1-1 against arky I don’t know how you can be upset about that!

Arkansas won the game at the line. Cats lost it at the 3-point line.

We have a lot of career average shooters. One elite shooter. I think we’ll be average but it’s ok cause we’ll shoot a lot of 3s which is a better shot on average and it wil open up the offense a lot.

Didn't make the plays, fairly moral on that but they are definitely better than last year

We win if Massoud is even an average offensive player that game. Went 0-8 with just an awful shot selection most of the time.

Both teams were 3/22 from three. It's absolutely not too early to assume that neither will finish the season at 13.6%.

We could have shot better tonight, but so could have Arkansas. Arkansas was just better overall. Notae and Toney are ridiculous athletes.

Moral victories absolutely mean something. Margin of victory is factored in most ranking systems for a reason.

eff man, people can't have promise about having a basketball team that's better one year removed from the worst K-State team o.a.t.? Jesus, misery loves company, I guess.

I just sad that last 3 didn't fall so we'd end up on Bad Beats.

True moral victory experts would argue you can’t have one when you equal the Vegas line. But coming back and winning the 2nd half by 10, I think that’s enough to give it the big MV.

I enjoyed my first bruceketball experience since 2018 and absolutely LOVE talking friendly smack to Arkansas Fans that I learned in the "Does playing Arkansas hurt the image of our program thread"

"Wow you guys have alot of fans here, did you use up all the make-a-wish's in your state"

"Yeah, but have you ever won a conference title in football? The what? Southwest something? Never heard of it"

(Insert joke about XC/Track national titles) "We play real sports at Kansas State, not trying to be the best at exercising"

Also the standard basic boy outfit for young arkansas grads is white wrangler jeans with boots. There was a group in front of us wearing that and I kept calling them all van halen. Ran into them at Johnny's after the game and THEY ICED ME. They must of pooled all of their remaining money to afford it but I took it as a compliment and finished it.
