3-Pointers??? Since when does this team shoot from the 3 point line or try to drum up a perimeter game. They went away from their strength, which is the inside game. Don't blame Thabeet for a bad game. Blame the guys who are suppose to feed him. Calhoun was definitely out coached.

I know they are "just kids" but how can you go into MSG (the mecca) and not put in the kind of effort that is commensurate with the stakes of the Big East tournament?

Hey Coach,

During the ten game win streak ther ewa sa reasl sense of team and passion to play together. In the last 3 games, Dyson's minutes have gone up and others have gone down. Craig Austrie is no longer getting the minutes he did when he and AJ spearheaded that winning streak. Loking at Jerome Dyson I see a player without any passion. I am not sure he cares about this team or the remainder of the season. Reduc ehis minutes and increase Craig's and Doug's and you will get the team tha twon 10 stratight back - fighting and kicking for every rebound, loose ball, and playing like a team again. Winning in the tourney requires very good perfromances from the bigs - AJ and Craig will make it happen - Jerome will not.

Thabeet is moore of a liability than an asset against the better teams. This will be apparent next year if he moves on 5 men will available on offense.
