Seems in the games we've lost or in the big runs we've given up in wins, we are just outhustled. I think we've probably been the superior team in all games outside of Baylor, but for some reason we just lose focus as you said, or play scared...something. One thing maybe Underwood can do is call a timeout more quickly when a run starts. I think he tries to conserve them a bit too much.

This is such a fun team to watch. Definitely the most explosive offensive team since 1989. And I've noticed we are rapidly creeping up the defensive rankings in KenPom and T-Rank which I think is the most exciting news. As good as the 2005 team was offensively, their elite defense is what won them 37 games.
