    I’m getting nervous looking at that line. Vegas has buck -5. Ughh. I just hope we got one more left in us. Holba is going to have to bring meaningful minutes tomorrow night. I’ll be there guys. Section c

    Buckys played very well. We did not. Abysmal 2nd half. Looks like we choked.

    They’ll never say it, but is it possible a 7-man rotation after a double overime game three days ago left LU with no gas in the tank. It looks as though the needle hit E at halftime

    no choke, just no gas in second half, not just a short bench but bench contribution almost zero

    Perhaps so. We sure got very little right in the second half.

    Congrats to Tim Kempton and Austin Price on great careers. A shame they never got to the NCAAs, but they had lots of other excellent moments.

    A reporter said Tim left in a walking boot ?

    Tough second half to watch.

    Few takeaways after long drive home:

    1) You need to win Regular Season and get the Final on your home floor. Their crowd, and ours, too, were tremendous.

    2) TK is a great player. But, we were too reliant on him in this game. Nobody else was aggressive or stepped up. Bucknell played good on the ball defense and we wilted.

    3) Big thing for me was Bucknell moving Thomas into the post in the second half. He murdered us in the post up game, as he was being guarded by AP and BA, who both gave up a lot of size. Reed should have gone to Holba there.

    4) AP and especially TK. Great careers. I wished they could have danced. Our big choke was last year on our home floor. This year, too few horses, and the ones we had were gassed. Can’t win at any level with only 16 bench minutes and 3 points.
