  1. We shouldn't be surprised. UNLV has been flirting with this since the Louisville game.
    Our trap hasn't worked since Anaheim (once teams started watching film on us).
    We have no leadership. Stanback is MIA and Trevon is doing more talking than anything else (imagine how much he would talk if he didn't play under Kruger).
    The elbow technical (which I agree with) killed us. The refs had to call it tight after that which is bad for UNLV since we can't hit free throws.
    Jasper 0 points, Stanback 7, Trevon 'more words than points' isn't going to cut it.

    ANTHONY MARSHALL: Please Lead this Team!!!!!!!!

  2. "ANTHONY MARSHALL: Please Lead this Team!!!!!!!!"

    I totally agree! Where's the petition? I'll be next to sign! I think Trevon's time is almost up. Sure, we should give him a fair chance to see if he can bounce back, but he shouldn't get much longer. I hope Marshall becomes the face of our team.

    However, I also think that besides leadership, our free throw problems and our performances from our big men are the main problems (problems that are directly related to each other). Marshall's leadership might make us a better team, but can't help much in those areas.

  3. Marshall played like a stud. It's a shame that a class act like Kruger is struggling with poor leadership. Hopefully things turn for the rebels, they could be a great team by the end of the year if the right guys step up.
