This game had a different feel to it right from the start. We know we can score and lead any team by 10 or 12 but we loose it all in the second half. You can tell they talked about it having blown leads built up in the first half before eventually loosing. They came out of the half looking to build the lead rather than maintaining the lead. BIG difference.
That's why I'm not really worried about the win and loss record. This team is very capable of competing game in and game out. They just really suffer from issues that all young teams do. Lacking a true Star player to score during rough cold droughts is one of the key issues and it'll take time for one to eventually emerge.
Defense is also a major flaw at times because these young guys let offensive success dictate their defensive energy, when it should be the other way around.
