The coach can put his team in position to win, which Engels has done. It's up to the players on the floor to make the plays. They haven't done enough of that, yet. But as people have said, they are young, faced the toughest early schedule in the league, and appear to be improving. If their defense comes together, they can make some noise in the league.

Not sure what to make of another CU loss in the final seconds. This time to Quinnipiac. More signs of hope came in Tape's performance and continued strong play from Faulds, but CU defense made Q's point guards look like NBA stars, draining 3's right and left.

Despite the loss to a team they should've beaten, there were many positives: Faulds, Smith, Tape, and Adlish. Good to see Tape, Faulds become assertive...and effective.

Q's 3-point production was exceptional, of course.

But, the Lions' D just has to be tighter, especially when opponents start bombing threes.

Yes, I agree. It continues to impress me how many college players have such exceptional shooting range. If your defense is weak that, of course, helps, but nevertheless, it is impressive.

We seem to have an uncanny tendency to lose winnable games in the last two minutes of play, or less, no matter how good or bad the competition. We also seem incapable of defending the three point shot. We really need to get Castlin back. With Castlin, Meisner, Faulds and Smith we should be OK once league play begins so long as we learn how to play some defense. Among the other contributors I am looking to Stefanini, Bibbs and Adlesh. I think that Killingsworth can help when he gets back. I have been underwhelmed by Hunter and Hickman.

I omitted Patrick Tape, who is vastly improved and freakishly athletic for somebody 6'10".

Can't quite figure out why Hickman is not doing much. I thought he would be hitting his stride by now. I think he almost scored 30 points one game not long ago.

Hickman's issue is consistency. Sometimes he looks like a world-beater and other times he makes a bad play that looks like he just doesn't belong. Mostly he's pretty good, though.

I double checked. Hickman scored 30 against Army last season
