Well hello from Boston. And OUCH for the Jays last night. A 2 point loss on the road at Little Rock is not going to sit well and shouldn't for that matter. However, the bigger issue isn't the loss - it's the way the team lost.
Yes, it is a bad loss on the road but it's just one loss in the non-conference. Last year's loss to Evansville was more embarrassing in my opinion since LR is a tough little team and the Jays were at their place. Shoe in on the other foot for scheduling and it will interesting to see if Dana ever goes back there. It was a lose-lose situation....they lost lost.
The team might have overlooked them but that happens in college basketball. Hell, the LR fans rushed the floor!? The Jays aren't even close to being ranked. They were 22-11 last year and beat 2 teams on the road including Pepperdine this year. Hopefully for CU's RPI, they will go the NCAA's out of their 1 bid league. But getting outboarded by 20 and 25-9 in the 2nd half! Damn, now that is the problem - not the loss.
It won't matter much against Nebraska on Saturday because both teams lack size but the fight you must have to win on the road at places like Lincoln, Southern, Wichita, Drake etc was not shown last night. Dana in his history is only 9-6 at CU in his first true road game. This is not A-Typical for the Jays.
Saturday night- the team better bring their heart with their sneakers this time.
