In front of a near-sellout crowd at the Jordan Center, the men’s team faltered yesterday, losing to Wisconsin for the second time this season, 54-44. This loss comes after the recent drubbing at the hands of Michigan on Thursday.
It appears that the Lions are in a funk.
At the game, three-point shooting, a staple of all the men’s wins this season was absent, with no made threes. Additionally, in a bizarre diversion from the norm, foul shooting was not painfully bad.
At this point though, it’d be nicer to have the threes and a close win due to agonizingly bad free throw shooting than a loss where the team shot well from the line. Hopes of making the NCAA Tournament appear to be getting more and more farfetched as we continue to lose. With a tough schedule in the weeks ahead, hopefully the Lions can pull it together and reclaim the shooting touch they had at Michigan St last Sunday.
