Impressions

— Obvious lack of depth will hurt the Cards against good teams. No help from the bench when Caracter and Farley get in foul trouble, as they will every game.
— Terrence Williams bottled up, mystery passing, displaying none of the confidence fans take for granted.
— Edgar Sosa out of control first four games.
— Caracter is a natural, uncanny shooting and rebounding skills.
— Earl Clark can make things happen, needs to be more of a focal point.
— Andre McGee, great on defense, no threat on offense against good teams.
— Jerry Smith, was he out there?
— Nobody works harder than Farley.

    Hopefully, Terrance “the Terror” Farley can continue to improve.

    While agree with your assessments overall, I do believe that we were working with two distinct handicaps: no time to practice without David P. and slight fatigue due to a game on Wednesday and being temporarily short-handed.

    BYU has a bench 16 players deep, has played together, and didn’t play on Wednesday.

    All-in-all, I was disappointed, but saw some good things.

    Except for Sosa’s ego problem, we should be OK.

    Good observations, Justcards, that hadn’t occurred to most of us. I think Sosa will be okay, just needs more time.

    Charles, 2-1 for the trip is fine, especially since all 3 teams we played could be tournament bound in March. Yeah, it’s disapointing not to play UNC, but I think our guys learned a lot on this trip.

    Besides, a 2 point loss to a good BYU team on a neutral court is about 100x better than losing by 16 to Gardner Webb at home.

    Can’t dispute the Gardner-Webb observation.
