TC played like they wanted to lose but managed to pull it out. It appears the game plan was to drive to the basket and draw contact. Earlier in the game, the whistles weren't blowing against Bryan. TC would drive and throw up a wild shot that wouldn't go in and no whistle. Bryan got the rebound and was shooting well most of the game. Lack of rebounding was definitely hurting TC. At one point, TC had 4 guards in the game, no one in the paint, and Gatewood was screaming about no one rebounding. At this point in the season, TC is either on its game or it is playing horribly. Not a whole lot in between. On paper they should win the fifth, but it wouldn't be surprising if they find a way to lose one at the worst possible time. If they would play together they are pretty good. When they play the way they did Friday night, they are VERY beatable.
