POSTGAME THREAD: Finally, it's over

Not much to say about this one, other than I hate being right.

  • I said we couldn't win if Klay shot 3-for-12; he shot 2-for-11, just 1-for-5 from 3-point range.
  • I said we'd have a hard time winning if we couldn't keep St. Mary's off the boards; we gave up over 40 offensive rebounding percentage in the first half when we got buried in a hole we couldn't get out of.
  • I said we needed to contain Diamon Simpson; he had 18 points, 10 rebounds and was 8-of-12 from the line.

I wish I could say I foresaw all the boneheaded turnovers in the first half, but there was just no way that should have happened. Disappointing, to say the least.

Patty Mills will get all the press in this one, but he's not the reason we lost. It didn't help, but his performance could have been overcome. Problem is, we were just too flawed in too many other areas to give ourselves a chance.

Pretty much a microcosm of this season, which is now over.
