    Loyal & True. Cowboy Basketball 20’-21’ Season Ends in a Second Round Exit against Oregon State. Pokes Finish 21-9 Overall. Proud and Immortal #NewEra

    We couldn’t buy a bucket against Oregon State and Loyola is pretending they are us right now. Is Oregon State getting lucky on their run? We had to fight so hard to get back within two and a few different calls or bounces and we could have won. Oregon State must be feeling like a team of destiny.

    I would think Beard would happily return there. And that might be a coach that could effectively leverage all the resources at UT and turn them into a powerhouse

    A new interesting development. The coaching carousel just got more intriguing.

    Agree. For me they were the most fun team to watch in more than a decade. The athleticism and skill on display were exceptional at times. I certainly got frustrated with them throughout the year, but I think they are a group of young men we can be very proud of and who represent our university...

    It would be amazing if he pulled a Marcus Smart and returned for another year. I have been so impressed with how he carried himself all year with all the hype and expectations thrown on him. Seemed like a grounded, humble, team oriented guy. Funny but could describe coach that way also. I...

    Agree. I am 62 years old and I could hit 70%. I’ve never figured out why there are as many poor free throw shooters as there are. Especially college players that spend hours and hours on the court. I’ve never researched the psychology of the free throw, but the mental approach has to be more...

    I think Rondell hit the freshmen wall this year. I think he is going to be a dynamic player for us. I also think MAM will be a game changer next year. If he even develops any type of mid range jumper he will be a tremendous offensive player. I think Keylan is a wild card and could potentially...

    I think it could be seen as a special season because I think it is a turning point for us in terms of momentum. We have been below average for quite some time. Now we get our first win in the tourney in 12 years. My expectation is we will be in the tournament every year going forward. If we...

    I agree. At the first of the year I would have taken this result. As the team grew and we could see their potential it seems that they should be at least a sweet sixteen team. They had an unprecedented run at the end of the year winning more games against top 20 teams in 18 days than anyone...

    Sadly that is true. Based on his performance this year he should have never been put in the game. He has a trigger finger that always wants to fire because that was supposed to be his role this year. He never delivered so he shouldn’t have been put in this game when the pressure in this Game is...

    Played poorly and still had a chance to win. We weren’t mentally tough enough. Great learning experience, but a huge wasted opportunity. Things that we were weak with all year shows up tonight. Very frustrating.

    Game changed when Avery went out with his 4th foul. They had a run then. Now time is running out and our players are super desperate and pressing. Can’t hit our shots. It is a shame the season ended on two poorly played games in a row. Hope coach and team learns from it.

    We can’t get out of our own way. I do think coach made a big mistake by not adjusting earlier and having Avery run the offense. Cost us the game.
