That's the best word I can use to describe this team since the duke game. Is it physical? Mental? Undefeated season wearing on them? Ennis hasn't looked the same, fair is forcing it too much, hardly heard cooneys name last couple games. They've just looked a step slow and it finally caught up to them tonite. Not great timing since our toughest stretch of the year starts Saturday.

Mental fatigue.

People assume that all the clamoring for more use of the bench is because players are physically drained. How about MENTALLY drained?

I've made a few posts tonight about this-- against Pitt, Fair was removed for a minute or so, came back in, and hit two huge shots. Sometimes a different view of the game, even for just a minute, is what these guys need. It's mentally draining playing in so many close games. It just is.

BMK being out has taken a toll on this team. And CJ playing every minute of every game is not a recipe for success most likely. The fact that JB feels he has to is not a good sign for the team. But the good news is BMK can get better and shooting slumps can end. Let's hope both happen soon! Let's Go Orange!
