The two teams essentially shot the same from the field last night and most other metrics were reasonably close. We didn't play good D allowing their guards (who are very good) into the lane and had to foul a lot. If one were to look at the box score not noting the 27 FT's they had they'd think it was a competitive game. The refs had little to do with it. We didn't take care of the lane, they did and that's that. They spaced us well on our overplays and capitalized on it. That's good coaching and talent. When you give 27 FT's up it's not the ref's problem. I have no problem giving them up on aggressive D. That's part of the deal playing our kind of D, but you gotta get in front and slow them down.
These things happen. Winning conference games on the road is tough and last night we had 100% of 0 for St. Bonventure. Get back to Richmond, regroup and move forward.
