The Cowboys agreed that Kansas came out with more fire than it did Saturday. They've done everything we've asked.
"It's the free throws hurting us and today was turnovers", Dixon said.
Brown's driving layup gave the Wildcats the lead, and Robinson tried to answer with a layup with 1.3 seconds to go. They came to Stillwater and we kind of blew them out a bit. It helps that the Eagles are pitted against a Louisiana-Monroe team that has attempted the fifth-fewest free throws in D1 basketball.
The Jayhawks shot better and limited the Cowboys' fast-break points in their victory. We shot 46 percent, and we were way up on the rebounds, but it turned the other way in the second half: "they were way more physical than us, that was evident". Mykhailiuk is averaging 15.2 points per game along with 4.2 rebounds per game.
With Kansas leading by just two points and the Wildcats riding a wave of momentum from a 33-foot alley-oop pass from Cartier Diarra to Xavier Sneed that trimmed KU's lead to a single possession, Garrett misfired on a wide-open 3-point attempt and appeared to give the ball to the Wildcats with a chance to take their first lead since early in the first half.
"I won't say fatigue wasn't a factor", Boynton said, "but we knew that coming in". "For us, he's made shots in this tournament". It's not an excuse, it's a reality.
Even when he returned to the bench, Brown was never looked like he was going to play, and spent the rest of the game holding an ice pack on it.
"If people can get over the fact they thought we wouldn't be any good in October, with all that was going on in our program, and just open their eyes and watch what we've done, and the team that played the last two days and the last couple weeks". The Cowboys trimmed the lead to two on a jumper by Tavarius Shine.
