that we lost the 2nd half last night 41-38?
I know the game was out of hand but in no way should Samford have beaten us in a half.
We did win the 1st half 42-13 though.
We did what we needed to do in the 1st half, Pitino saw what he needed to see, even he admitted that he didnt much care about the 2nd half. We could have beaten them by 60, but why?
This happens in blowouts more often than you'd think.
And they were hitting some rediculous threes from way outside and with defendors in their face. I sure wish we could get hot like that. They were making some shots that I would cringe if our guys took, even if we had someone like Taquan Dean shooting, I would cringe. At one point in the second half, they were 8-15 from three point range and down by 30.
We didn't press in the 2nd half. That prevented us from getting easy buckets, and let them actually run their sets and they were unbelievably hot from 3. Lots of them weren't even great looks.
Last tim,e I read the rule book it is a 40 min game.
If we win the second half, but lose a game - does it count as a win?
This is yet another dumb post in a string of negative nellie nitpicks!

Great time to be a Cardinal, and getting better!
We didn't press in the second half.
HA HA. Wow dude. pitiful life much?
I simply made an observation and curious about what people think.
If this post is dumb, then what does that make you for posting in it?
Agreed. Clearly, the intensity wasn't quite as much in the second half. We still crushed them.
Honestly, I have never noticed. I just happened to be looking at the box score today and noticed that. Intensity may have been down since we destroyed them in the first. Either way, it wasn't even close and was a fun game to watch.
It wasn't just that our intensity was down in the second half, Rick called off the press and showe mercy. We generate a ton of our offense off the press and getting steals. Had Rick played our normal style and they outscored us, I'd be concerned.
It is fairly common. Not most of the time but frequently. Teams blow out an opponent and then coast. The loser plays all 40 minutes.
