I hate it. He needs to be encouraged to attack. I hope the coaches stay in his ear, that is his path to greatness. Attacking and getting to the line. Refs wont give him calls now but one day they will and he will be unstoppable.

Chicken and egg. Ant doesn’t initiate contact often so refs don’t get many chances to give whistles.

The shooting is horrid tonight. Was hoping we would start to consistently shoot well.

Fortunately they have shot even worse.

Think we just had 1 4 game win streak in the last couple of years. This will be massive if we pull it off.

If the Wolves had hit even 30% of their mostly wide open 3s they'd be up by over 30 points. The Russell/Edwards/Beasley group going 2-20 on 3s is just abysmal.

I really wish the Wolves would stop taking so many 3s in a game like this where they are ridiculously cold.

The real test is Wednesday against Miami.
I want to beat Butler so bad.

Wolves 2 of 19 from 3 this half.

Pat Beverly has made a big positive difference starting, guarding their best guard. Dlo had no shot.

What is wrong with the production of Bally? Black screen, audio cutting out, weird commercial editing, missing scoreboard, music miscues. Come on.

Vando & Beverly are legit all defense type players in our starting lineup

McD has had 2 superb games in a row.

Dlo 3 of 18 and 1 of 10 from 3.

I love the fire in Ant's eyes and the smile on his face doing it.

That 4th quarter really sucked but the wolves still got this win without a real issue despite our terrible shooting.
