    I doubt that Freemantle and Jones on the floor together will work, as neither has shown they have any range. Maybe Zach has it, and/or it can be developed. And they both need to shoot at the back of the rim.

    not on tv but used app to follow play by play from a boring party. I doubt we had a "kill" tonight (or very few) as every time we had it to a one possession game I would see an entry "brown layup" or "Childress foul shot 1" and we would be behind the eight ball again. Looking for a little more from Tandy and Moore and only 2 game to big east. Also last 2 games Jones had 2 fouls immediately and that has to stop(he had a poor game I must admit). Carter is Carter and hope he gets a little more confident, and Freemantle on road did not get much done with Tyrique out. Oliver Saar their leading scorer not there but Brown stepped up. Who knows but I am impressed by all the Big East tams (including us) and would probably settle for 10-8 or even 9-9 now. Butler looks locked and loaded and Creighton too; can't think of a weak time and I would never sell Providence short or even St Johns

    Almost posted the same. Guess on the road to an ACC opponent with ties to our program (ok old) equals loss at home vs the fore mention.

    We're really going to compare ourselves to Duke and Kentucky? That is a blip on their radar. Duke also beat Michigan St. and Kansas. UK beat MSU as well.

    Xavier hasn't beaten a good team yet. Maybe UConn.

    So you're saying better teams than us lost to worse teams than Wake at home. Got it.

    NO!!! Wake is better than Evansville and S.F. Austin. And we lost to them on the road, not at home.

    Hankins + Jones didn’t have range and that pair still worked really well last year. Steele even mentioned in his last press conference that he needs to get Freemantle and Jones both on the court at the same time and how Hankins and Jones were great together when he finally put them out together late last season.

    Frankly, I’m surprised he didn’t even try it. Those two bigs on offense would have been much harder for Wake to handle.

Finally, for all the talk about the defensive intensity of this team, tonight's version of defense was enough to make me puke.
    Actually, I think having both Freemantle and Jones in together would mean less fouls for each because there would be less territory for each to cover. Hankins and Jones didnít get into much fouls trouble when they were in together last year- instead they dominated the boards - for easier buckets and had more blocks.

    Xís defense today was indeed a bit of a joke for long stretches.

    I feel comfortable saying Duke and uk will rebound and 100% be tourney teams and probably 2nd weekend teams, can you say the same for x? That's the point.

    Wake sucks.

    Iíve heard of needing to get some rust off, but apparently his is 3 or 4 layers deep.

    Time for a couple no more mr niceguy practices, followed by Q and Jones starting on the bench. Honestly could they look any worse ? Benching is Steele's only threat.
