          White isn't the most dynamic guy but Stackhouse seems like a drone
          chance to put the game away but the point guard can't make free throws

            Assuming it is not the refs fault that is allowing Vandy to make these 3's, the only question I have is are they wide open 3's or is the defense contesting them with a hand in their face? Teams will make shots, all you can do is contest them. If they are wide open then I would agree it is a problem.

            Good thing Vandy was without best scorer Nesmith at 23 ppg? I imagine he would change Vandy's game effectiveness.

            I’m prepared to state Mann is not in a slump.....or it’s the longest slump in history. He just can’t shoot. He is playing better in other aspects but he can’t shoot. He needs to reconstruct his shot.

            Lewis got his 3rd rebound in 3 games as well as had yet another game with more air balls than dunks.

            Payne was awol. Not sure why.

            Glover plays with the most confidence....even exceeding his talent.

            White sat on a lead again....which never goes well for us.

            I’m all in on the criticism of White. But I cannot give all these players a pass. It’s time to step up.

            Thank God for KJ. He’s our best player.

              There is nothing FF does not excel at. Darn shame more people do not take him seriously.

                Our defense actually stepped up in this game thankfully. We were able to force 17 turnovers and only had 7 of our own so that is good on the road regardless of the opponent. Vandy's leading scorer averages 17 points a game in SEC play and we held him to 11 points on 4-12 shooting, 0-4 on 3s and he had 6 turnovers. As for the Gators, Mann is in a freshman shooting funk as he was 1-6 shooting. Hopefully he gets better for next year if he doesn't transfer when we get a new coach. KJ saved the day with 20 points and 7 rebounds. Locke with another great shooting night with 17 points. Blackshear mugged all night on his way to 6 points and 7 rebounds. Payne playing like a freshman and not active around the basket and blocked out just about every time. You can see that the scouting report is updated and out on him so he has to adjust. All in all, it was a must win against a garbage opponent but a much needed win nonetheless. Explain it away all you like as it goes down as a win. Should have been a blowout and obviously it will not save White's job as he will be gone at season's end with more losses to come.

                There is NO DOUBT whatsoever that FF would have this team in the top 10 and looking like a Billy D type coached team.
