‘Nut, you’ll be correct if any of those clowns that “officiated” in Tulsa happen to be in Houston.

No energy today. Wave looks tired. Frazier playing hurt. Only guy scoring at that.

Misleading stat. We’ve shot terrible so that’s why we’ve been out rebounded so far. They haven’t missed much.

H-Town bill's itself as the "Bayou City"..."Buffalo Bayou" flows close to downtown...it actually looks more like the drainage canal on Vet's Blvd in Metry

I believe Space city is official nickname but bayou city is nearly as popular. If you watched any hurricane Harvey coverage you'd probably figure out why the city has that nickname.

On the hoops side of this game, no other word needed than pathetic.

Not misleading at all 22-10 overall... 6-0 offensive... So they're getting nearly as many of their misses as we are.

Right on. We’re one and done. We need bigs that can mix it up and follow up. Recruit! Recruit! Recruit! Or get Koka and Ajang to grow up NOW!

We shot 26% they shot 50%. Not counting our missed FT’s. So that alone would mean a double in rebounds in a normal condition. Just bad all around today.

Hard game to watch. Won't get easier on Wednesday.

Actually, it might get a little easier. I got the schedule confused. ECU comes to Devlin on Wednesday.

Space City started being used in the mid 1970's.... actually Johnson Space Center / Mission Control is not located in Houston, it is in Clear Lake about 40 miles south of Houston on the way to Galveston using I-45... I use to live in Clear Lake beginning in 1974 before moving to The Woodlands..my townhome looked directly at "Mission Control"...if you ever get to Houston, go to the Space Center, you will not be disappointed

This game was, by a long shot, the toughest to watch. Fortunately, I had it on DVR and by the 10 minute mark I was fast forwarding liberally (and through most of the 2nd half). A very ugly performance, I wonder who''s bright idea it was to stay away from home between games?

Houston was founded by land speculators in a mosquito-infested swamp, uh, bayou.

Sorry but these are college players and that is part of his job description. Shades of Toledo there.

Yes. Just looking at Frazier’s facial expressions you could see the pain he’s playing in. Bruised chest or broken rib are extremely painful. We had no energy. No legs which affected our shooting. The Tulsa loss carried right over into this game. I’d give the team off Monday and Tuesday to get rested for Wednesday.
