Good game. Predictable finish. 

Can't argue with the play calling at the end of regulation or overtime. Jones was calling for them to get a shot off earlier in regulation, it was passed at least once or twice instead. Had an good lo

Only thing missing from this program now is a good in-game manager and coach that teaches solid fundamentals and gets the most out of his players - makes them overachieve. These tight, end of the

In the loss to Weber State Hooker was clearly the only player doing much for UND and I was upset with the fact that the other guys couldn't even hit any free throws down the stretch.  Tonight a lot of guys stepped up and played well which makes me think the future is bright for UND basketball.

On the way back to Fargo.  Fun game to watch and good crowd.  Again, props to the administration to put the money in to showcase this young, talented team one more time at home.  A few thoughts:

  1. The team got better from this game.  That was a good team we got the opportunity to play.
  2. Crandall is freakishly athletic.  Some of the plays he made tonight were ridiculous to watch.  
  3. Best game from Shanks this year.  His role may be coming off the bench.  He just looked and played more relaxed against the 2nd best interior team he saw this year.
  4. McBuckets 2.0 basketball IQ is high.
  5. IMO, Seales will be our most improved player next year.  With a little muscle and a little more work on his midrange jumper he will be a tough matchup at the 3.
  6. Glad we have Hooker another year.  Not his best game tonight but he is the player we can market this program around this offseason and build excitement around.  
  7. Shoot a decent percentage from the line in regulation, we win the game.

After the timeout, why would we run down the clock (dribble for 15+ seconds out front) and eventually had to force a shot up as the shot clock was running out.  

I must have misread - however, back to the point.  How many times have we seen this from Jones.  It would be laughable if it wasn't so sad.

Good notes.  Yah, other than Q Hook and Crandall & McBuckets at times, everybody else's ft shooting is woeful--these guys each need to shoot 200 fts a day over the off-season.  Man, Crandall can sky, incredible air. One real bad foul I recall tonight was at about the 40 second mark and believe we're up by 2 or 3 and Bernstein fouls an Anteater a bit above the 3 pt line when he starts to try to go around him, I just didn't get that (guy made 1 of 2 fts I think).

Tough loss but fun game against a really good team. This team really grew this year. Next years team should be the best team on paper UND has had in some time. Pretty much bring back all production and add an all conference level player in Wheeler Baker. We'll have 7-8 guys who can drop 15 plus on any given night.

Starters - Hooker, Crandall, Baldwin, Drick, Avants

Bench - Baker, Seales, McDermott, Shanks, Cashman, Collins. 

Guessing the two freshman will redshirt although I've read real good things on the big from Washington.

Big summer for recruiting too. With the core class of Crandall, Seales, Baker, McDermott, Avants, & Collins having 3 years left this team should be in the mix for BSC titles and NCAAs the next 3 years. Need to try and land 2 high impact guys to fill Q & Baldwins spots after next year.

I think your lineup is probably right beings that was what it was at the end of this year but I'd like to see Seales over Baldwin. Baldwin is a nice player but I'd like to see him off the bench.

Hoping they squash Avants shooting 3 pointers this off season.  Not sure he hit one this year.  That is my only complaint of him.  He really exceeded expectations as a true freshman.

Avants 8-18 (44.4%) on 3's for the season.

Beat me to it. That kid is a threat from anywhere on the court. Good basketball IQ, with moves in the paint and the ability to pull up and hurt you that way, too. Color me impressed with young Avants.

Anyone at the game see the one-man Anteater cheering section on the southend portable bleachers?   He got escorted off the floor once by two security guards and was allowed to return, and then he was removed completely just before the end of regulation.   Besides being overzealous and obnoxious, what did he do to get removed?
