The Hump
« on: January 02, 2018, 10:16:27 pm »

What will it take to really get over "The Hump"? Tonight dropped us to a 7-21 record in SEC play in that building. It's not like they smuther us in crowd noise (modern day) Is the court soggy from hockey, balls underflated, the rims too loose? Why do we always fail in Starkville with [censored] crowds? It's absolutely crazy.

41.7% from the line tonight, piss poor performance. Be nice if we could seriously shoot close to 70% from the line. Hell, I'll take 60%, that woulda got us the "W".

I know I personally only played high school ball, but if our team failed to hit 80% from the charity stripe, we made the difference up with laps. So, 41%? That's 39 laps. Then practice. Just saying, you gotta be afraid to miss. Poor free throw performance just pisses me off. No excuses. Sorry, that's just how I feel.

Since the tad pad is no longer used for basketball at old misses the Hump is officially tied for the worst in the SEC.

When you are a jump shooting team and don't attack the rim, that's what free throws will look like, especially on the road.

Maybe we go in there and see 1,500 sleepy people sitting in the stands and go to sleep ourselves.  Those people don't deserve to see real basketball and then we oblige.

We had similar practices after games. Ours as a team was 10 laps per miss. Then we would go into FT drills after the laps and had to make a certain amount or we were running again. This was all taking place at the end of practice after we were already exhausted. Needless to say we ran a LOT!!!

That might explain a -10 or so discrepancy in fouls. There was plenty of chances for the refs to call fouls out of the paint, yet they weren't called.

Agreed! I do feel like we could have penetrated the paint a little more to try and get those calls. As we play more road games we will see more of this. Overall on the year it hasn't been bad. We are averaging 24 ft's per game and our opponents close to 26 per game. Last night obviously flipped those numbers. We were on the plus side prior. Granted we have played nine home games counting Little Rock. It will be interesting to see the difference once SEC play is completed regardless of how each game is officiated. Hopefully we adjust and drive the ball more.

$hit happens on the road and certain venues just stink.  People tend to forget all 3 Corliss teams were 0 for Starkville.  We would lose a close game to them at the Hump and blow them out on the return trip to Fayetteville.  We lost to MSU in Fayetteville last year.  That team had a 3 digit RPI, this one has a top 60.  We should have won but it's not a bad loss or the end of the world.  It stinks but it happens.

The Hump and that thing at Vanderbilt is the absolute worst place to play BB in the SEC.  The SEC ought to make Vanderbilt redo their court to make it more like the other BB courts in the SEC.
