    NKU should have won that game.

    Nice effort from the Norse. Louisville is just better.

    Good effort and a solid showing for the Norse. Definitely had the opportunity to win it, just wasn’t meant to be.

    Future for this program is still incredibly bright.

    Candidly, I was surprised with Louisville's 2nd half D. Shut off the passing lanes completely and made NKU look disjointed. Definite level of athleticism controlled the 2nd half for Louisville. Good season for the Norse and they will get better as long as Brannen stays.

    2nd game in a row the Norse look lost in the second half.

    Louisville needs a coach. They were a few lucky bounces away from choking away a 10-point lead with 6 minutes to go.

    Louisville's athleticism was the factor as the game went on. NKU played a good game and will continue to get better.

    You mean someone besides the fourth guy down the bench that got the job two weeks before the season started?

    I'm not trashing him. It is what it is. I feel bad for him.

    NKU is significantly more stout than I thought they’d be. They’re a team that had the potential to shock the college basketball world in the tournament.

    As for us, I’m glad we got the win. Random thoughts:
    - I keep falling in love with Darius Perry and Sutton.
    -I thought Nwora blew an opportunity tonight when he came out sleep walking.
    -I’m so glad Ray tucked his shirt back in
    -Deng is dynamite like no other player when he is on
    -If Anas never shoots a hook shot again it’ll be too soon
    -I wish we could have gotten more pt for Malik Williams
    -We missed so many short range shots. Again
    -I’m so hypersensitive about rebounding. I’ve never felt like that in my life
    -Deng should be a significantly better defender than what he is
    -NKU had so many wide open Blackfoot cuts
    -VJ either didn’t do too much, or didn’t do much. I’m not sure which. I’m going to my grave excited about his potential and I don’t know why.
    -I’m glad I get to see Q suit up at home another time. I’m going to miss him

    I thought we were going to lose until Deng came out and score like 9 straight points. When he is on, he is electric.
