Warriors Slide Continues

Poor 3 pt shooting (7-25) and foul trouble haunts the Warriors one again as they fall to rival Notre Dame. Some big, left-handed sloth for ND ate Ooze Barro’s lunch to a tune of 22 pts, and 13 rebounds. 22-8 sounds like a fine season, but Marquette should be disappointed. This team baffles me. They’ve lost 4 of 5 now with post season play just around the corner…not a good time to go cold. Speaking of cold, Dom James (and almost everyone else) can’t seem to make a shot outside of 8 feet from the basket. I really think they have sweet 16 ability...heck maybe even Great 8, but they just can’t get into a rhythm and will probably lose in round one to a crafty 10 seed from the Missouri Valley. Then again, my record in picking games mirrors D-James’ 3 pt percentage, which is well below average. Unfortunately for James and Crean, the onus will always come down to them, fair or not. This squad is going nowhere fast in March unless James and Fitzgerald rediscover their outside strokes. Where's Anthony Pieper when you need him?
