Poorly executed, poorly played, poorly coached the last 4 mins. Awful end to an awful season.

Congrats to DD for 1,000 points and appreciate his effort but not taking that foul with 8 seconds left shows his lack of basketball IQ which has been his weakness for four years.

That last three minutes sums up the season, poor defense and scattered offense.

What was Grant thinking?! I know DD and JC had 4 fouls, but with 3 minutes to go you gotta ride them all the way. Then we take the air out of the ball with back to back shot clock violations, which totally killed our momentum.

Wouldn't hold my breath on the coaching. Hopefully AG can out recruit everybody in the A10, because he aint out coaching anyone.

Having only six players caught up to us today. With 7 or 8 you can win, but not with five or six. Besides foul trouble and slacking on defense, the problem gets to be when guys go cold or get winded, there is not answer.

I'd take that bet. VCU should've lost to us 3 times. They aren't winning the championship.

There are some intangibles that must be solved in the off season.

We were not intentionally taking the air out of the ball. We have very few guys that can create for themselves, and that becomes magnified when a game comes down to a few possessions.

Yes, that was a low end coaching effort in the closing 4 minutes. Realistically, it was miraculous that UD was winning by five that far into the game.

At least glad it wasn't a George Mason/LaSalle/St Joe's effort out there today. Team came to win. They just don't know how right now. Provided Josh and Kostas remain in the fold I think we definitely have something good happening on the interior for next year.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it was a pleasure doing the threads again this year... I will be back next year which should be a much better and more exciting year... Time for the off-season, let's get it!

We “created” plenty of shots throughout the game, scored 72 points. Back to back shot clock violations at that point in the game is absurd.

I did not have high expectations, but I did not foresee the bumps where they manifested themselves. Never saw the season going as it did for X. Was very dismayed by Svaboda’s inability to knock down shots, and despite low expectations for Crosby, he offered even less than I had hoped.

Darell was Darell. Had some outstanding games that I thought were beyond his ceiling, but really disappeared at some critical moments throughout the year. Our program was definitely better for his having been a part of it, and I will remember him fondly all in all for the contributions he made to some cherished moments throughout his career.

On the plus side, Crutcher was a great pick up under the circumstances, and Trey exceeded my hopes in so many ways.

Midway through, I was very disappointed in Kostas in view of all the hype, but am now greatly encouraged by what I have seen from him in the last month. He has an enormous upside.

I think Jordan Davis will be very solid moving forward, and with Toppin and Mikesell getting into the mix next season, there could be a big improvement overall.

I have seen Cohill play, and for me, the jury is still out as to how much of an impact he will have next year. I think we need to find at least one more significant contributor in order for next year to be a season in which we contend.

Everything is magnified at crunch time. I seriously doubt we deviated from our offensive scheme in the final 3 minutes. It was execution by a tired team that fell flat.

On the 2nd shot clock violation and 3 seconds left on shot clock, why wasn't Kostas inbounding the ball. Especially after the first attempt was tipped out of bounds. He was inbounding a lot earlier in the game and very successful at it.

Not sure. Think they were hoping to set up a lob inside to him?

I could not believe that no one on the court for those two inboundings threw, or even tried to throw a screen. So basic, and yet so missing.
