NU loses 68-59

The halftime bad news outweighed the good news as Tulsa heated up from outside while Thompson got into foul trouble and handicapped our offense. Moore did about all he could, knocking down NBA threes. It came down to an open look down three points with about 30 seconds to go which came up short for Moore. Tulsa pulled away from there knocking down all their FTs.

The biggest difference was the presence of Jordan down low. We couldn't get points in the paint except for a couple of backdoors and some real difficult shots. That allowed Tulsa to press on the perimeter which really shut down the shorter Thompson and took away one of our offensive weapons. Mirkovic needed to step up from distance to draw out their big man, but he was shy on the shot. Let's hope next year that changes.
