Are we swept up in our own hype which causes us to be overconfident and ill prepared ? Or does a marginal and lackluster start escalate into disaster because we are so use to being on and in control ? Whatever the reason, it is contagious among our players during an off game (. Miss , rim out, air ball, unable to finish), they all seem to break down when we need someone to break out. Great teams allow their great players to have off nights,that's when the other players step up. We seem to step down. Do we mentally beat ourselves because we cannot accept disappointment and failure during the game ? Do we have no one other than MATT that can shake this, take over and finish? If that answer is yes, then we all better be praying to Saint Al now, to keep Matt firings on all cylinders. Tonight there was no sight of T.U.R.F. OR MATT.
