Better spacing, and staying stronger with the ball on drives... finally going to the foul line more!!

And making the freebies

Outside of turnovers and free throws, Texas has played well. Hitting 64 percent of 3-point attempts is a big part of that (and unsustainable), but I'm more impressed with the greater effort to get to the rim and the foul line.

First-half defense wasn't up to our standard, but they've adjusted and done a better job of getting back after makes and misses. CMU has also cooled off a bit.

Andrew Jones with two high school basketball turnovers with under 3 minutes remaining in game and Texas having a double digit lead early in shot clock....  

DUMB

With 31 attempts from the line, Texas basically increased its FTA stat for the season by 33 percent in this one game.

I know, right?! Giving up almost 80 points to the #1 scoring offense in the nation. What an abysmal performance.

Happy with win... saw some better play in 2nd half as they got more aggressive on both ends...

Don't be fooled by only 1 loss though.  Not a well coached offensive team right now.

To close with a positive... if they can get out and run, they can be a lot better team as season goes on... lots of athleticism needs to be unleashed!!

While technically true, lets not pretend they put those stats up against decent teams

yep. our D picked it up and CMU cooled off a bit, except for the one guard.  we smothered them inside pretty good.

hit FT's and we cover.

we got to the line because Febres and Ramey got hot from outside.  the problem I have is our whole game depends on shooting 40%+ from 3 to beat very good teams.  If Febres can be a hot 2 of 3 games guy we could potentially get to .500 in conference but I'd have to see it to believe it when we start facing much better defenders.

Good game and nice win by the Horns. Central Michigan regularly drops a 100 points. Nice start for the season by the Horns. Not sure what happened in the second half against Georgetown but the win @ Purdue makes up for that. Hookem!

In their 3 away games before us this year, they averaged 62 points against opponents that were ranked around #103 in the nation

only two letters really matter and the are L and W.  We accepted a W today and 8 other days so far this year.  

Was is a great game? No, but they adjusted at the half and pulled it out.

This feels like a team that will get better as the season progresses. I still have much higher expectations than a .5 conf record even after watching a less challenging than usual non-conf schedule.

Last season with this same schedule, we are probably 5-5 at best, so while we aren't winning pretty, we are at least beating the teams we should, and at least one that we shouldn't.  I'm in no way optimistic that we will continue to win regularly, but at least there is some improvement.  As ugly as we are to watch, I'll celebrate a win anytime we get one.

this is the worst schedule we have ever played. last year's team would not be 5-5 with this schedule.

Okay, maybe 7-3.  I have three words.  Radford...at home.

we *barely* scraped by McNeese State at home this year, who is far worse than Radford. I don't think we've even covered a single spread this year against this embarrassing schedule. if this year's team weren't exclusively playing teams outside the top 200 we would be nowhere near 8-1.

Have you looked at Tennessee's schedule?
