Interesting how that article points out how an opposing player has their career-best game against us night after night. I wonder if Guerry gets some of his ideas from our board?

Broken record, but

We need to rebound
Make 80% of our foul shots
Play with urgency
Make 38% of 3's, since that's our only offense

Prediction

Tulane 77
SMU 86

Tulane down by 10. SMU with 17 second chance points. And hitting 3s. Hunter gonna continue to lose winnable games with his nonsensical defense allowing so many off rebounds and open threes.

Need a change since coach won’t. I despise his coaching style. All medium sized forwards who play at 3 pt line on offense and then are not taught to box out against bigger players on the defense in.
Hunter can’t be this stupid to think that’s going to work. I guess we know why he schedules the way he does OOC

Get to within 4 and the offense generates a wild three as shot clock winds down. No play to execute. This guy can’t coach a lick.

Every time Tulane gets close Forbes throws up off balance .3. That is the best Hunter can draw up.

Then does it again with 10 seconds left. Does Hunter coach at all during a game. I’ve never seen worse end of game decision my life.

Exactly. Perry was merciful. He didn’t want to de-pants Hunter on ESPN2. I wish he had.

As Tulane fans we all know too well that doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is insanity. Harris has to fire him or the place will sit empty next year. We just don't deserve to endure this any longer.

You guys should have been at the women's game last night, Coach Stockton clearly outcoached the Charlotte Coach in the final two minutes drawing up plays like perfection giving the ball to star Whittingt0n who drew the defense to her dishing off for easy baskets by other players twice. The players executed to perfection after a 3 pointer by Golic.

Off topic but Tulane women and coaches really did perform last night at the end of the game. My daughter texted me after the first perfect play they ran to say how good it was. I told her it could have been the best play they ran all year. Two possessions later, they ran something similar and scored again. Good win.

As someone who had Tulane +8.5 it’s almost like they were playing to cover.

With both teams slumping coming into the game, coaches had different approaches to try to get them out of their poor play of late. One coach ran his team hard with drills and teaching. The other let the Seniors run practice and take it light. Guess which team was ours?(hint:the team that won was coached)

And I don’t give a damn about our horrible women’s basketball team. Both the women’s and men’s programs are tough to watch, so I can only watch one. One team is poorly coached, the other lacks talent. I’ll choose the men who suck a little bit less. But it’s getting to the point where I cannot watch Tulane Basketball. And it looks like the players are giving up on Hunter, or at least realize he’s not a good coach. Once again a nobody has a career night against Tulane and most of it was due to getting 2nd and 3rd chances from under the hoop. Brutal to lack fundamentals so obviously. And Hunter’s D plan is to outscore everyone. Pathetic
