#1 UALR had 36 points in the paint vs. Missouri State
#2 UALR shot 21% from three
#3 We gave up a near similar amount of points in the paint.
#4 UALR gave up 20% of MSU's points on turnovers.

Solution;
2-3 defense and deny the inside, force them to shoot over the zone.
Push the ball. Apply 3/4 court defense since we can go deep into the roster vs. UALR whose starting 5 ate up the majority of the minutes, and 3 others giving occasional breathers.

I think the birds struggle all the way to the end but win this 65-60. Hillsman proves to be the difference maker in this game. AR LR doesn't have an answer for his size (similar body type and matchup issue as Reggie Lynch).

Play hard and play as a team for 40 minutes. Or longer if that’s what it takes.

I'll be back in town again for this game, so if we lose this time I'll take the blame.

This is what I was thinking. I think it is close the first half but then we start to pull away as our depth and pressure take their toll. Need to keep the ball moving on offense and that will help tire their legs as well. UALR looked talented but not deep at all. I think the final will be Birds 67 Trojans 56.

I can't make the game. I would appreciate comparisons to the effort from the Belmont 2nd half.

Shoot 70% in the 2nd half again, and should be able to come away with another late game victory.

Muller said in Belmont postgame, there’s no reason to stay home to watch the Bears this year. I agree, that excuse shouldn’t hold down attendance this Sunday at RA.
