The post game press conference was brutal for Beatty. Frank essentially said he isn't practicing the way he should and in the past guys like Sin or Notice would take it upon themselves to embarrass them on the court to get it through their head they need to take practice seriously. Don't have guys like that now. Huge lack of leadership and a lot of young guys messing around.

Our problems are:
Lack of a true PG. A guy that can beat pressure, protect the ball, penetrate and create (for himself and teammates), and play on-ball defense.
Defense. Especially on-ball (see above) and defending the three point line - we were one of the best last year, with opponent's 3 pt. percentage, this year......
Lack of a go-to guy. Our two bigs are trying to be that guy, especially Silva, but.....
Foul trouble. I have never seen a player get as many touch (plus the occasional non-touch) fouls as Silva. Against Ole Miss, it was Minaya that hardly played. When you lack depth - which is something that I did not think would be the case preseason - foul trouble is exacerbated.
Turnovers. Again, lack of a true PG contributes to that.
Fire and sense of urgency. I saw a little spark last night, but the team is looking for leaders. Hinson helps with that - he makes mistakes but he gets after it, so does Silva.

The PG issues are due to Dozier leaving/Rah's suspension/injuries to Holden and Gravett. Holden has dealt with two - first the knee, now the hammie.

Then you have the inexperience - 5 Freshmen and 3 transfers. They are still trying to find their roles and learn what Frank whats.

We have two needed things: Talent and a coach. The PG problem will get better as we get healthy but we needed Rah back. We will be good with Rah/Gravett Holden next year but need to recruit someone for 2019-2020.
Our problem is not defense. I watch all the games. The stats support it. We lose games because we don't have offensive talent. We are good defensively and awful offensively. That's a recipe for a mediocre team.

Mizzou hit 14 3-pointers. That's 42 points they really didn't have to work for because they were wide open looks most of the time.

We can't use bad PG play as a crutch if a team gets that hot. We always lose when that happens if our own shots don't fall because dribble penetrations that draw fouls can't necessarily be converted to 3-point plays.

We have won games when opponents have made half that number of 3-pointers.

Mizzou's Gs were just in a zone on the perimeter and somebody had to lose.

It's a long season. We just have to keep moving forward.

Let's see what happens when Sani, and hopefully Kory, are healthy again. If Chris had been able to play 30 minutes last night, we might have won the game.

Missouri scored 42 points on threes. But that isn't enough to win. It was the layups and FT they made that made the difference. I wish every shot our opponents took was a three. If it was, they would not shoot many FT, and we'd win a lot more games.

Why is Gueye still here? He just isn't fast enough with his reflexes to get the job done.

We're missing an important factor on defense. We don't have a ball stopper this year. Last year we had 4-5 guys that could do it. Tough to guard like that, no matter what offense the other team is running whether it's Horns, 1/4 High, Flex, etc. We have the talent once we have a fully healthy team but we definitely have to guard better.

I think Hinson can be the ball-stopper once he gets back in a routine with the team now that FB is over.

I keep hearing the 2-3 years to pick up the system. I think this is a problem in todays game. Too much turnover in staffs and players for a system to take that long to really work year in and year out.

D on threes was our main issue last night. Anyone that watched the game and looked at the stats can see that.

And Frank has been very clear, all year, that our on-ball defense is not good. I believe it if Frank says it.

Defense is not our only problem, but it is not nearly as good as last year. Frank has a bunch of new faces and it takes time to learn his system. And someone needs to do what Notice did last year - get in the ballhandler's face and disrupt the Offense.

Mizzou is up 29-24 over UF in the first half and Clemson is 13-1 and ranked #25.

Those may not be bad losses for us down the road.

Step back from the ledge.
