I think this game will really tell us if the Hornets are for real. I'm not trying to downplay the Hornets performance this season, but the Hornets SOS is ranked 157 out of 353.GreenArmySwarm wrote: ↑Mon Dec 09, 2019 7:38 am This upcoming game at Santa Clara (Katz first coach gig as a Grad Assistant so that's a fun lil tid-bit) will give us fans a REALLY good insight on how good this years Hornets team is. SCU, sitting at 9-2, is considered one of the best Mid-Major team so far with their hot start of beating PAC12 Cal and Stanford

Then the Hornets no-showed on the offensive side of the court in the 2nd half and let SC control for almost the rest of the game. Fortunately their defense kept them in it and the Hornets clawed back into it in the waning minutes. It was tied in the closing seconds and SC got a bucket, Davis drove for one last attempt but his shot didn't fall (he had McCullough for a potential game winning 3 wide open on the wing who was 2/2 from 3 on the game). Le'afa didn't play, which might have been the difference.
Hornets just had too many turnovers and missed shots (from the floor and at the stripe). Esposito (1/11, 0/2 FT) kept putting up awful shots as well that really hurt the Hornets. Davis (14 pts, 3 assists, 4 boards) led the Hornets in scoring, 3 others (Jacobs was huge off the bench) had 10 points.
Hornets have a terrible Cal Poly (2-7, 2-8 when they lose to Fresneck later tonight) team in the Nest this Wednesday. Then it's off to conference play.
I thought I might have been overly critical of Davis on the SCU game, but I looked back at the box score and it kinda confirmed my statement about the TOs and decision making.
