Defense totally won this one. Offense was ice cold for half of the second half, and Haws (who we'd normally need to win) contributed no points. Not to say the scoring at the end was meaningless, but our defense kept us in a game we would have lost in years past.

The Facebook Live feed for the Alabama game was horrible and from the comments online it wasn't just me. So I didn't watch that one. But UMass was a great game. I loved our effort and defense, but man, something has to change with our ice cold shooting. Here's the pre-season ESPN ranking and current RPI for both teams:

Alabama - 27/9
UMass - 165/148

So yes, Alabama is a legit good team. But don't get too excited about UMass. There's 351 teams so they are only slightly above average. BYU is 87/125. We have a lot of work to do on our resume (and just general quality of play) to be anywhere near a tournament team.

Childs has stepped up his game while both Bryant and Haws have had an awful game to hurt their averages.

I stopped listening thinking we had lost. Couldn't believe to see we came back!

Yeah, 11 - 0 run in the last 3 minutes. They played fantastic defense and (finally) hit some big shots.
