Colorado State 108 – Abilene Christian University 100 (2OT)

November 25, 2015

In a pulsating, riveting, …

Nope.

Worst double overtime game I have ever witnessed.

Worst effort I have ever seen on the defensive end of the floor.  No desire to stop the ball. No desire to pressure the ball. No desire to change the opponent’s offensive tempo.  No attitude.

It was only made exciting by the defensive incompetence of the home team against a game and scrappy group of visitors.  Visitors who ran their offense like they would in practice and made shots and who were able to disrupt the flow of CSU’s half-court motion offense by overplaying the perimeter passes.

Lots of players in double figures. Kind of like a rec league game.  Where even the guy with the short shorts and tube socks gets 12 and narrowly misses  a double-double.

It was a win for the Rams.  It was a huge step backwards.

ONE FINAL THOUGHT … Tiel Daniels had a huge game for the Rams. 20 points and 10 rebounds. More importantly, he made 4-5 free throws which meant he could see the floor in the final minutes of regulation and Overtime.  The Rams are not good defensively but they are way worse when Tiel is on the bench.  He brought the team back with a pair of and-1’s in regulation and provided the only morsels of defense when it mattered.
