Coming off a tough home win against a solid Wyoming team I just watched a group of guys who flat out underestimated this DIII team and played with no effort. I'll call it a terrible day and move on.

I'll take that and agree. Just hope some of the small/detail things we are seeing the boys not do...don't come back to haunt us in big ways later.
Just my opinion...I could be wrong!

Coach talked about the slow starts on his postgame segment. They're not sure what it is but know it needs to be corrected quickly. My wag is the focus on defense. A good Wyoming didn't score much while we struggled offensively.

I agree, need to learn from this. That effort won’t get it done against anyone the rest of the year. Have to be a heck of a lot better.

Our defense is better, but our offensive play today was far and away the worst of the season. Like you said hopefully it’s a game where they looked at the name of the other team and declared a win. That is something that haunts inexperienced teams. Have to learn to bring the effort every night. Use this as a learning point and move on. Need much better effort at Arkansas State.

That was an ugly game.

Does it bother anyone else that our 3 redshirt players seem completely uninterested in the time out discussions. The one is always pulling his phone out and glancing at it, they are talking and playing around with each other, or watching the video board (I understand when the one was on the Family Feud deal). Maybe I am completely wrong, but I feel like they should be listening as maybe there will be something they can learn for next year or offer input to players as they are sitting.

I enjoy their enthusiasm when their teammates make big plays and all.

Again, just my thoughts on something I have notices as I watched the home games this year.

Rest assured, Walter will not let this very poor effort pass. The only two positives, that appear as takeaways to me, are 1. DC picked up some effective minutes in the paint, and he generally stayed out of foul trouble and 2. We now have exhibit A as to why you take EVERY opponent seriously and play to win CONVINCINGLY. Instead of 65-49, the score should have been 85-49.

Albion wasn't intimidated, they were focused on their game plan, and they had a couple of good shooters, but yes, this effort today should have embarrassed the Aces.

Just wasted a Saturday watching a pathetic, no-effort game of poor shooting, missed free-throws, silly passes, all obvious signs of lack of focus and lack of interest in competing! The Aces should be ashamed of what they put on exhibit today....what happened to all those statements of "being tough." Hey, the Hebron Hoppers showed more energy and effort than our basketball team! Almost 7 minutes into the game before we scored a basket! A first half of lethargy and carelessness....for goodness sake, someone wake these guys up...and free-throw shooting practice should definitely go on the schedule!

Checked the score, every so often, throughout the day.
Wasn't sure what to make of it.
After reading my fellow PAF members comments, perhaps just as well I didn't make a stronger effort to follow the game more closely.
Still hoping to be in Jonesboro on Tuesday.
However, being stuck in Dallas, seems inevitable.
Humerous sidebar.
Here in Frisco, I'm staying down the street from "The Ford Center".
Pass by it almost daily.
Was gonna call them and ask about ACES tickets.
