    ---Lost my program but the best player on the court I think could be their #5 what a vertical--can drive all the way, pull up, and hit the 3---very tough dude!!! Think our big boy off the bench has seen the light--getting tougher every time---maybe he pulled ahead of Scottie and that had some bearing on his leaving!!!

    I agree. They have played good D since he's been there and I though they had a great D plan tonight. Luckily we hit some 3s (thanks, PJ) and hit our FTs

    Bingo! Spot on...put another 15-20 pounds of muscle on the "big boy off the bench" and look out!

    Although his block was great, it was there because he was beat very bad on defense and was able to recover. He isn't very quick at all

    Yeah, really, easily our ugliest uniforms imho. I'm alright with black being an accent color, but when did grey qualify to be the entire color of our uniforms? And the fonts were to small to read, and way too busy.

    Yes the block was sweet but he had completely lost track of his man and allowed him to get the pass wide open under the basket.
    The zone gave us fits for a while on offensive, we took some bad shots and made some bad passes. This team makes up for that on defense. ULM was not hitting the offensive boards at all, they all dropped back as soon as the shot went up. Good win. GEAUX CAJUNS

    Didn't like the unis either. And we still don't wear the ones with Louisiana on the front even though ULM seems to have accepted it. ???

    When the Cajuns do not create aggressive defensive turnovers they do not do well offensively because we are not a good half court offensive team. We might be no better than low average. Tonight we did not have that good turnover ratio.

    Observations not criticisms. Hardy had to hit those shots because he was schooled twice by number 23. His burst was not equal to Hardy's but he kept up for a while.

    Brown was also having trouble with 23 as he dribble penetrated forcing Brown to fall back. At that point in the second half he simply did a fade away ten footer twice in a row.

    In both cases Marlin had to bring in a better defensive player, or should I say a more seasoned one.

    Miller? You can almost tell when he is going to shoot whether the shot is good or not. Man is good so you got to take the good with the bad.

    Stalcup and Plaisance? Thinking we got a little more from Stalcup than we would have with Plaisance, but man we need to put some kind of weight room work for that guy. He is heavier than he looks.

    Never had a serious doubt about the game, but anytime a team takes a lead or is within one possession of taking a lead you get a little uncomfortable. Next year Marlin needs to find a coach who knows how to run a half court offense.

    We are a top 20 offense. Yes, we score more when we create turnovers, but I would not call our half court offense below average. The stats do not bear that out.

    Hardy is a serious upgrade from our go to 3 guy from last year. Yes, he had some defensive lapse, but at least he tried playing defense. And he can MAKE the three.

    Hardy is shooting 56% from the three, which is insane and good for 3rd in the country. Also, Bryce is the third leading RPG guy in the country.

    No joke. We waited for three years for Register to be that guy. Hardy has been exactly what we have been needing off the bench.

    Hardy would have been a game changer for us when Long was here. I know it's nothing in the big scheme of things, but those gray unis must go. And it won't hurt my feelings if we decide the novelty of that floor is over... and we go to something else.

    Individually, the Cajuns played well last night. ULM played us very well defensively. And they have a couple of gifted shot makers. I can't understand, for as much as they collapsed on us down low, that we didn't kill them with the mid range jumpers. We out rebounded them even outnumbered under the basket, but they were very aggressive at the rim. We don't seem to want to get in and kick it back out. Thank goodness for the long range shots. And I have to give it to Marlin... his teams play excellent defense. They lose assignments ever so often... but they hustle huge.

    I was not a fan of the gray uniforms but if the team wins in them, that is a minute detail. Winning is the only thing that should be prioritized. Everything else is minor.

    We had trouble finishing inside last night which made our half court offense look stagnant. We did get to the rim several times but could not complete the play. Work on the boards helped negate the finishing problems at times. I give ULM credit for some of those problems. I do agree with J1M in that we perhpas should have shot more mid range jumpers when we beat the guy off the dribble. Stove, Wright, and the two inside guys have made some of those in other games. Stove especially had trouble completing plays and he may have been better off with the mid range shot. Still, ULM was responsible for that issue as they did a good job of contesting every possession. It was obvious they were up for this game due to it being an in state game. Express is correct in that at times Hardy and Brown were beaten by their men. That happens occasionally. Still, we kept them under 40% and you usually win when you do that. What has not been credited enough was the Cajuns FT shooting. After starting 1 for 5, they were nails the rest of the night. We shot one and ones four times last night and made three. That is fine for a shot with that much pressure. Good to see that occur after they struggled in that regard on the Arkansas trip. That needs to continue as we will have to score more to beat Georgia Southern. They scored 86 against Troy last night and have one of the league's best players in Tookie Brown.
