This game is going to sting for a while, but those of us in the crowd really saw an incredible performance by Flowers there. Obviously, it’s upsetting that it happened, but he hit a game tying 3 in regulation, overtime, and double overtime, all with under 5 seconds left. I could be wrong, but he may have been the guy to hit the three to end the first half too? Odds are none of us will never see a performance like that again. Possibly because defense could be better or most coaches would know to call to foul there the third time around, but that kind of performance is just amazing.
The team did look much better in the 2nd half and we had a semblance of a front court game with Amir Allen. Obviously the problem was free throws. I think the Panthers hit their first nine free throws and went below 50% the rest of the game. No team will win many games when doing that.
First off had a great time tonight even got a chance to meet pounce and wife tonight really good people. Now let’s get to the nitty gritty We gave Western Michigan this game We missed 20 free throws that’s killed us!!!!! Rebounds killed us the Bigs killed us have to continue to play as team I saw some selfishness tonight but have to overcome this but we’re better than ppl expect but it’s a turn in the right direction.

We had a combined 29 fouls in the second half and overtime, which is nuts. More than 70 fouls were called in the game, and there was very little flow to the game, because a foul was called basically every 5 seconds. There must have been 5 fouls called on us while Western Michigan was shooting a 3, and at least a few of them was 4 point plays

We all hate losing but I liked what I saw. Allen and Wilbourn improved as the game went on, giving us some hope for the team's frontline play. The trio of Lucas, Roy and Thomas will be fun to watch. I look forward to seeing some of the younger players progress through the season. If the team gives this kind of performance in conference play, they will win a lot of games, even with the questionable in-game coaching decisions.

Flowers was magical and deserves most of the credit. We gave him a standing ovation when he fouled out. Still, I would have sent him to the line after he made not one but TWO game-tying shots! Simple formula.
