Not particularly upset, just frustrating when people say things without backing it up...you said lazy and didn't show up. I want to simply ask why do you think that? I didn't think we looked like we didn't show up against UW or were lazy, include Iowa in that same category. What were you seeing from what guys? What was egregious to you? Its fine if its was the end result but then say it. I'm not losing sleep about losing bad to two top teams when we had bad shooting nights. If you don't shoot above 35%, its tough to win a ton of games, home or away.
The GREAT news is, i believe it's just a mental hurdle. Whether sluggishness on defense some of the time or bad shot selection another, though, they're playing differently on the road. Since you'd so very much like specific examples: i can think of at least two plays in the Iowa game where Carr got his pocket picked for two easy fast break layups. Both times he brought the ball over half court, stood there and LAZILY dribbled the ball while being LAZY about guarding it and proceeded to hand away the easy points.
Not on the scale of Twins vs Yankees in the playoffs level, it's something that can be overcome - it just hasn't... yet.
