What a fun first half. If Sehic could make his free throws, like he did early in the year, we'd be up 15+

Sehic got the T when the Tulsa player jumped up in his face and yelled foul! He replied "all ball" (on the block). BS call. They miss the FT's, but thats Sehic's 3rd foul (corrected, I thought it was his 4th). BS. And Tulsa has gotten away with at least half a dozen traveling offenses.

TV clearly showing Sehic being tackled. Mugged. The worst no-call of the season.

We're not going to be able to hang on and that sucks. We need a tough thug like the guy that keeps tangling up with sehic. We need one of those. Bad.

OMG, the no foul calls at the end when Reynolds is going up with the ball really screwed us.

Reynolds in an awful slump. Not the same player we saw in the early season.

Don't like our chances in OT

Terrible officiating on both sides. Reynolds missed two key free throws in the last minute and then was mugged under the basket as time expired. Lack of depth was the killer. Dunleavy has to recruit guys who are ready to play major college basketball. No more projects. Tulane was dead when you have to play two walk ons in overtime. Frustrating loss.

These clowns officiating this game should be suspended for the rest of the season. Hand it to Dunleavy for this effort without 2 of your starters.

My cousin is a Tulsa grad. He just called.

Man that's tough to take. Start shorthanded with two starters out but Slater and Daniels stepped up. We had that early rough patch where we got down 9 but then started playing really well on both ends. We played like we did in the win over Temple. We were active on defense and getting our hands on a lot of balls and we were really moving the ball well and attacking inside on offense. Really pretty to watch. Then after their coach went ballistic on the refs they started calling the game for Tulsa. It was so blatant the announcers were saying how bad the calls were. Reynolds once again missed two FT's at a critical point and we go to OT shorthanded and lose. A real shame.

Refs were bad no doubt. But once again we lost the game on the FT line. Just make one more in regulation and we win. There’s no guarantee we make a FT if that foul was called at the end of regulation they way we shot it tonight.
Credit to the coaches to overcome the injuries and stay in this game all night. It’s a shame we had to lose it.

I see that everyone has said it above, but I'll say it again. If Reynolds and Sehic can hit their FTs then we definitely win this game and perhaps would've won against Temple last Sunday too. This team has little margin for error. That said, the Refs were horrible. Finally, I hate frickn Tulsa more than any team in the AAC. Their BB coach is low class. I wish Fritz would've laid 100 points on them in football. Hopefully we draw them in the AAC tourney and we can get some measure of revenge. There, I've vented. I feel better now!

Yep. I was just coming back to say it wasn't just Reynolds missing them. Just like the last game we missed too many and we once again missed the front ends of one-and -one's. We thought this issue was behind us but it's back and we need to get it fixed.

Unbelievable effort by the team and coaches. As I watched the game I just kept saying the basketball gods will get these kids this win,and damn if they didn’t. Only one glitch, even the basketball gods can’t overcome the officials. Reynolds should have been at the foul line needing only 1 of 2 for the win.
I kinda feel bad for Reynolds as he is more of a perimeter player who is asked to play with the bigs and he just isn’t comfortable with the physicality under the basket at either end.
One more point the best box out I’ve seen all year came from the walk on in overtime. With all of the easy baskets given up by this team on drives to the basket and offensive rebounds, not so sure that kid shouldn’t have been tried a little more this year. Likewise Slater has some shooting skills and might have helped against all the zones we’ve seen this year had he been used some more.
