Beautiful day here in Nashville. 70's. I figured this game would be a blowout since they had nothing to play for. I hear i was very, very wrong.

What was the story with the rebounding discrepancy? Other than that we would have won going away, right?

Marquette loses and Georgia wins. Georgia ties Kentucky in SEC.

Cloverly Colonial, their interior defense was solid. Our guys are used to driving and expecting finger-roll shots to make it in but the rim was also very unfriendly to us today. Ryan Canty, Fordham's big man, was outstanding: 12 points, 16 rebounds (5 offensive, 11 defensive). Him and Armwood were going at it all day.
Fact of the matter is we got outrebounded 46-28, which is completely not like us. Defensively we were good and had them shooting below 40%. I was very impressed with how the 1-3-1 shut down the 3-point shot. They went 3-24 and yes A LOT of those shots were forced but still solid job.
The close game is a product of both poor rebounding and what Frazier did. We didn't give him a lot of space and he was still able to pull up and make some very difficult jumpers. Sure we could have tried to trap and double-team him but that would have left Canty open inside. I think Frazier's performance says more about his skills as a player than it does about our defense. Take out his performance and across the board our defense played well. Even if we still got outrebounded by single digits this would have been a 15-point win.

Thanks Papa. Good summation. And I'll take the win!

I saw a bunch of offensive rebounds for FU come off of bricked shots as well. Just a bad bounce for us
